This article, which I found today, seems to have put a nail in my coffin:
It says daily cortisone use makes the skin more fragile and susceptible to redness, which becomes permanent -- as does the skin's sensitivity to any and all products.
Can anyone help? Has anyone experienced this? I've read some supplements, like flax seed oil and borage seed oil, can help repair the skin's barrier function. Does anyone know of anything else? I don't even know if they will help, though... the article says it's permanent.
I'm really worried. Can anyone help?
