After almost nine months of Topical Steroid Withdrawal, I have abandoned moisture withdrawal (again), started acupuncture, and finally understand how adrenal fatigue has been affecting my mood and emotions. It's been a roller coaster friends, but I'm starting to feel better mentally and emotionally. I wish I could say that overall my skin is doing better, but that would be a lie. I'm dealing with hypo pigmentation again, redness, itching and of course dryness. What would Topical Steroid Withdrawal be without without dry skin and flakes?
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!
