I am so sorry to hear about your story. I think I might have met you and your boyfriend before. I think after I met you, which was years back in Katong Mall, I went through the worst eczema in my 3 decades of oral and topical steroids application and did phototherapy for the second time, this time while I was 8 months pregnant. I went back to heavy use of steroids. Now, I have had 11 ops in all, all cos of my allergies and eczema, 4 on my eye cos of retina detachment cos I kept slapping my face cos it was sooooooo itchy, and then cataracts removal, cos of excessive and chronic use of steroids. I have gone through TSW and my little son, too, at 3year old. He was given strong class 3 steroids from the time he was 4 months old. Thank God he is fine now. Do press on. You’re doing the right thing. I wrote to encourage you to press on, and do keep in touch 🙂 God bless you 🙂
