The purpose of this new website is to re-evaluate the misdiagnosis, mistreatment, and mismanagement of an entire group of eczema patients diagnosed with Atopic Dermatitis using the timeless Osler tradition. This website will listen to the patient.
Atopic Dermatitis, or eczema, is an inherited skin disorder characterized by itchy skin, red rashes, and sometimes accompanied by hay fever and asthma.
Eczema ‘burns out’ naturally and stops manifesting itchy rashes for the vast majority of patients as early as age 3-4 and as late as teen years.
This natural clearing process and healing pattern has been repeatedly observed and reported generation after generation yet it is totally ignored by an array of physicians including dermatologists, allergists, pediatricians, and a mélange of ‘peripheral’ therapists. Instead, repeated therapeutic attempts with creams, medications, food avoidance, environmental avoidances, phychotherapy, home remedies, immunosuppressive agents, antibiotics and an increasing variety of corticosteroid creams, pills and injections are administered to stop the worsening rashes, infections, symptoms of itch and burning when what is needed is to listen to the patient who is saying, “I am getting worse” with each successive treatment.
Ask the patient. Listen to the patient. The patient is getting worse. It is time to rethink ‘chronic’ eczema. It is time to question the therapy.
For some reason well-intentioned physicians are refusing to question their therapies and simply end up recommending more of the same failed protcols in an effort to give their patients short-term relief.
The website will offer an alternative therapy that ends the myth of ‘chronic’ eczema and offers a long-term cure.
