But here are some pictures of my arms and hands... where I was having problems with normal eczema from dairy and gluten. The skin is still dry and old looking. But no eczema or itching. In order to truly clear everything in terms of dry skin, itching, and the occasional breathing problem, I need to go completely sugar free for 3 months and take the caprylic acid during that time. This will be my final goal to getting rid of the slight itch and the extra weight I still carry on me.
I am 4 years TSW. I've had to take oral steroids once for my asthma about 1.5 years ago. Otherwise no steroids. I am so thankful to be where I am now. With 30 years of TS use, I don't think I should be this well off if I just let time be the only way to heal. Steroids in general will cause yeast to overgrow. This is well documented in the medical world. So it behooves those of us subjected to years of steroid use to address a yeast overgrowth in our bodies. I wish I had addressed this sooner in my journey but my mind was not working right with all the pain I was in during the first year.
So here are some pictures of my dry but mostly clear skin.
