OK is a side issue to COPD but the regular steroid use is creating paper skin problems which are quite severe and, I find, very distressing. Now I am getting easy bruising. When I check I find that the daily aspirin I am on for thrombosis risk (ill-defined bit I have arrythmia) is associated with bruising (due to the desired platelet effect).
I am not convinced I need the aspirin (75mg pd) but the steroid are a bit of an essential evil. Doctors sanguine about either issue frankly.
Here's the question - anyone know anything about something called MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) - it replaces sulphur in the metabolism and this is said to improve skin function. So anyone got any experience?
