Menghadapi ruam kulit pada anak tentu seringkali membuat kita sebagai orang tua merasa khawatir. Apalagi jika ruam tersebut menimbulkan rasa gatal, atau nyeri hingga mengganggu aktivitas anak. Sebagai orang tua, rasanya apapun ingin kita coba dan beli asal gejala iritasi tersebut dapat pulih. Baik itu eksim, alergi atau ruam apapun, sebaiknya moms mulai memperhatikan produk yang moms dapatkan apakah mengandung steroid atau tidak.
Saya adalah salah satu eczema survivor. Saya juga adalah salah satu orang yang mengalami Red Skin Syndrome dimana saya telah resistan terhadap obat dan krim kulit dan juga salah satu TSW (Topical Steroid Withdrawal) survivor.

[ENG] “For me itching has been the worst symptoms in my recovery from TSW. It has brought me to my knees crying, praying and begging it to stop. The itching was so bad that at one point i would scratch it until it bleeds. I remember i was begging to God to make it stop or at least better so i didn’t have to see my hands breaking my skin that i really wanted it to heal.
There were times when i itched 24 hours a day. I blamed everything, the clothes i was wearing, the weather, the things i’ve eaten, ect. But God is so good, He helped me decreasing the itch by the time i prayed and let me learn some safer way to deal with the itch.”
