National Eczema Society and British Association of Dermatologists have released a joint position statement on Topical Steroid Withdrawal. This is only the first step in getting a proper diagnosis and treatment. However it is a massive step forward.
For all those based in the UK. This is a call to action! Report your suspected reactions to topical steroids via the Yellow Card Scheme. MHRA are aware of TSW and have recently conducted a review of cases and have encouraged us to report our own reactions.
A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to the site and helped us create something we were only dreaming of a year ago. We have created this resource for you to share with new sufferers and for people who want to understand more about TSW.
This is our first ever newsletter! October is Eczema Awareness Month. The Topical Steroid Withdrawal community is closely linked to the eczema community and we a proud supporters of the year’s awareness campaign.
