I can't believe it's been eleven months friends. Topical steroid withdrawal take two has been kicking my butt, but the good news is I'm sleeping again, I have more energy, and my skin has been clearing up. I still have inflammation in all the same spots, but my skin has been smoother, less dry, and sometimes less itchy. I've also started taking Vitamin D which I think has been a huge help. Check out the update video below for all the deets. I've also added some pictures so you can see the progress and improvement of my skin.
I'm Lauren, aka Just Du Pree, and I want to thank you for reading. This is a space where I share my very personal journey healing from eczema and topical steroid withdrawal (among other things), life lessons I've learned along the way, and occasionally the thoughts of an awkward Black girl (no Issa Rae). I'm a performer and filmmaker, so if you feel so inclined, pop over here to see what goes on in my mind on the regular. If you like what you see, you can stay up to date with my work here. Much love, friends!
