Back on Steroids!

Okay, I’m not talking about taking steroids to get all big and buff for athletics! I’m talking about topical steroid creams to help with my eczema. For the longest time I was interested in starting TSW, in an attempt to get off any steroids, but with the heat and humidity raging, I decided to get prescribed a new cream, something that was stronger than an OTC cortisone.  My new wellness doctor prescribed me (get ready for the long name, I can’t even pronounce it) Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream USP, 0.1%… I will unashamedly admit I don’t know what it is… but.. it’s working. It works beautifully! I use it sparingly, just a teensy bit, after I cleanse and moisturize my eczema patches with Cerave SA Renewing Cream and some Aquaphor. My skin is looking great these days, at least compared to what it looked like a few weeks ago. I am one happy camper! I will keep y’all updated on how it’s working for me in a few more weeks 🙂
