Cracks are very normal. Dr. Rapaport recommends something that sounds odd, but helps a lot. Crazy glue! It will seal the cracks and make you feel a lot better.

Thank you i will try that!

Most doctors cannot distinguish between serrous exudate, which is that oozing liquid, and pus, which indicates infection.

The clinical signs of infection are: localized swelling (like around a specific cut), thick pus (usually yellowish or greenish) and pain to the touch.

Serrous exudate, the ooze that comes with TSW is a thin liquid,  more like sweat or water. It can be clear or clearish yellow. It is NOT an infection. It can CAUSE an infection though, so it needs to be dried up. Bandages only go so far.

Dr. Rapaport recommends Dombero solution. It is a little package that you mix with water and make a compress from. It soaks up the ooze and dries up the area. You can then moisturize for mobility and you'll have normal-ish skin.

I don't really feel like sharing what seems like a shameful part of my life.

I think it helps a lot to think of yourself as person with a mission. This year I've been able to personally spread the word about TSW to about 200 people, helping them get off steroids and into healing, as well as preventing others from developing TSW. It makes my suffering much easier to know that I am part of a purpose.

I'm not familiar with Swanky's story, but I also got TSW with no eczema. I was taking Accutane, an acne medication, and one of the side effects is sores on the legs. Before I even started the medication, the doctor handed me a tube of Vanos cream to be prepared for those sores... He set me up for TSW!

Hey Swanky, old friend. :smiley: We do have an ITSAN spot on Twitter: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login....and You Tube and LinkedIn so there is RSS info getting out there through these outlets. Yes, there is a lot of not so good to wade through but if one suffering person finds us or we can help prevent this travesty, it's worth it. I've told your story many times. Swanky, to prove that you can get TSA without having eczema. Your story is helpful!  :thumb up:

and btw, steroids are NOT the treatment for infection. Even it IS infected, antibiotics take care of that.

Swanky, it is so nice to hear that a human being is expressing less than full adoration for the internet. Guess it proves that there are still some with morals! Most people wouldn't dare call the internet a cesspool... But ya know, it really is.

Mah, I can't do reddit, feel dirty just thinking about that site.

I just know twitter is a big portal and I saw so few mentions of RSS. Hell, I even feel that way about twitter a bit these days. As I said, I was planning on leaving their as well. The internet in general has become a bit of a cesspool.
