Red Skin Syndrome: Stop The Suffering
A continual avalanche of new and long-suffering “eczema” patients who have found me over the Internet has prompted me to begin a new website and blog. The simple fact is that these patients are unique and identifiable through many simple and time-tested methods. They do NOT have eczema but instead are manifesting symptoms of another kind.

The doctors that these patients have seen believe that they are treating chronic eczema when indeed they do not recognize that their patients have severe vasodilation and redness from the steroids that they themselves are prescribing! Their patients have developed Red Skin Syndrome (RSS) and a topical steroid addiction (TSA) from using the increasing amounts and strengths of the corticosteroids prescribed to help them.
The time has come for eczema societies and physicians to stop exposing these patients to dangerous misguided therapies.
I will dismiss detrimental recommendations, invalid explanations, and other faulty advice and on the part of many physicians.
I will discuss the appropriate methods to make the right diagnosis that will lead to a CURE for Red Skin Syndrome.
The blog will be based on my life experience and medical practice solving the problem of Red Skin Syndrome one patient at a time over the past 35 years. The content of each blog will address a specific topic in the scientific understanding of Red Skin Syndrome and the ordeal of topical steroid addiction that so many patients continue to experience. There will be ongoing commentary on the misdirected myths and the often misguided medical advice and therapies that exist on the topic including raising caution about enlisting patients into new drug studies that are treating the wrong diagnosis and can potentially cause even more harm to patients.
My goal is to end the current tragedy of needless patient suffering. It may take the patient months or even years to recover but the reward is a lasting cure.
