I rarely get them but when I do its like a miracle to my skin.

Ive been using a corticosteroid cream every morning and night for about a week now. The sores have gotten a lot better but still painful. It feels like theyll never go away. I was also given a numbing gel to help with the pain. It helps a lot but doesnt last as long as Id like it to.

Great if you want to look like Hulk Hogan and risk heart problems. Stopped it after we saw the side effects.

A quick IV 'fixer-upper' for early RR. Can be administered via home-care. Not to be overused. Used before Novatrone.
The injections into the wounds make the inflamation go down in a matter of hours but causes muscle pain weakness tense muscles scaring loss of skin. More pain than its worth.

I like this lotion mixture the dermatologist got me but I can no longer get it in Michigan.

My hair grew a little but my skin color changed a little and the texture.
