and Tazorac — Doing the Trick
I accidentally sneaked into your site when looking up information
on Tazorac and Olux. Hope you don't mind.
Two months ago
(approx.) a dermatologist prescribed the subject medicines. I am VASTLY
improved and am not flaking now. My great wife used to jokingly call me
the rug mites of the worlds' savior. I
have experienced P for approximately sixteen years. No doubt, I have used
virtually all of the OTC medicines, and a number of Scrip medicines.
Dovonex did about a 60 to 70 percent job for six months or so.
So far, the
results with the present drugs are very good.
instructions now, are to apply Olux to suspect areas, as well as Tazorac
to my calves. Works for me. Many other areas appear to be in
remission and there is no application being made.
Lesions are no
longer evident on: face, ears, chest. arms, back, and thighs. Lesions are
down to 30 percent on calves.
I have not been
traumatized by P. As with any other intrusion that is not debilitating in
a major way, P exists and life goes on.
Thanks for the
"humorous" comments from others. I have had very few. Guess my
attitude disarms people. When pressed, I just tell them that, "I bet
you've never seen Hansen's before." They don't have a clue, and just
I felt moved to
write. I'll be praying for you and ask for the Lord's will in your life,
as my wife and I do for our family and friends.
Best regards, -Bill A.
sneaked into” our site? Is
that possible? All right, I
want to see a show of hands. How
many of you accidentally sneaked into FlakeHQ?
this, Bill. I like your
attitude. Life does, indeed,
go on. I also like your line, I bet you’ve never seen Hansen’s before.
On the off chance that you might one day say this within earshot of
a FlakeHQ reader, I want to make sure they all know Hansen’s disease is
another name for leprosy. Now,
if somebody within earshot chuckles when you next use this line, you can
assume it’s a FlakeHQ reader.
that sometimes lesions go into remission when they are NOT among those you
are currently treating. I’ve
watched this happen several times with lesions on my back that are hard to
get to. Of course, the derms
suggest this might be a sign that the corticosteroid is systematizing,
which is not a good thing. Evidently
those topical corticosteroids are supposed to stick to where you put them.
If they start wandering around your innards via your blood stream,
they can find places to cause trouble.
They’re like Ninja. You
want to have them to send on missions, but as guests at your cocktail
party? No way.
