I have tried every recommended treatment out there besides remicade, it just all made it worse. My dermatologist has been trying to get me approved for remicade on a passionate basis because government medical will not cover it (At almost 30 grand a year, no one in my family can afford it). It has a 70% success rate, so I am hoping it will work. I get it intervienously every 8 weeks, after the first 3 doses which are done 2 weeks apart. I have been reading up on all the side effects and am extremely worried. I do not have much choice besides live off of morphine forever. So I need to try this. Has ANYONE had this medication or known someone who has? Hopefully this turns out okay I need relief from this
Hey I have the same thing. I cut out nightshades from my diet and it completely cleared up. I know a lot of woman who have cut out night shades and it helped them. Some women can just cut out potatoes and it will clear up. You should try it and see if it helps. You should try it for at least three months it takes time to get the food out of your system. Anyway, I have this issue as well as PCOS and I highly recommend the Paleo diet as I helps with symptoms.
I hope this gets better for you! It is so painful sometimes.
Nightshades = potatoes, peppers, eggplant and there is a list of stuff this includes cutting out spices that are made from nightshades like paprika ect.
