Info Videos on Topical Steroid Addiction & Withdrawal

These two videos in this page are the first videos I saw talking about topical steroid addiction and once I saw them it all clicked.  It all made sense as to why my skin was never getting better with the use of the creams and injections.  It also pretty much made it clear to me that eczema is curable.  I also found it really interesting (in Dr. Rap’s video) that most eczema patients coming to dermatologist these days aren’t even true eczema paitients but more so steroid induced eczema patients.  That just shows that once someone thinks that they have eczema they can heal it up (holistically) with figuring out what’s going on wrong internally, and won’t ever have to see a dermatologist and be prescribed those horrendous creams.  It’s great to see a medical doctor out there with this belief.

Some background on Dr. Rap: 

Dr. Rapaport is the leading medical expert in the U.S. on Topical Steroid Addiction (TSA) and Red Skin Syndrome (RSS).  He has assisted thousands of patients in discovering that they had RSS/TSA and helped many of them heal with his unique approach of total cessation of topical steroids.  He is a Clinical Professor of Medicine/Dermatology at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) Medical Center and Board-Certified by the American Board of Dermatology.
