Merry Christmas to you all too! Funny that you should mention steroid cream John. I hadn’t used any for more than a decade but recently started using very small amounts of a “natural” Chinese cream I ordered on line. It doesn’t indicate steroids on the package which is why I ordered it but after using it and getting good results I researched it more and it most probably does have steroids in it. I’m going to continue using it because I’m tired of not getting any results with diet, creams... but minimally.


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

yes, i have used it sparingly the chinese cream, i can get if for a pound delivered from china, it starts with a Y for this particular one but, i am too frightened to use too much of it, i use british made hydrocortisone at 1% at moment but not all the time, I see your frustration and we just want shot of it i get that completely Rita , let us know how you get on with it , I know theres a lot of these chinese creams saying they are herbal and they are steroids but , if it helps you i get it, merry xmas Rita :)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year out there in Flaym Land! I'm having a big flare without anything helping. I do believe it's from stress. So discourage. I had a wonderful week with my kids and all my grands.


Rita
Rita @rita

Merry Christmas to you too Jane! Sorry to hear about your flare up. The holidays can be stressful plus you add in the foods we eat which we don’t usually. We celebrated yesterday and for a few days I’ve been eating desserts although restricting portions. Hopefully once you get back to your normal routine your flare up will subside.
