TSW - What helps


Topical Withdrawal Syndrome

TWS is one of my most painful experiences . Even though I avoid the use of topical steroids now, some creams I use can bring back a milder form of those painful symptoms. My skin has gotten so sensitive!. I can tell you though, wash your face only with water if you are experiencing TWS, absolutely NO soap however mild. I have found applications of organic honey to soothe and heal the condition faster and better than anything else, even aloe vera which is good on normal skin but lethal on broken, sensitive skin. Just apply the honey and leave on as long as you can before washing off. It does feel sticky and you will not want to get it on your sheets etc., so apply it while you are moving about in your home. And please never go out in the sunlight with TWS.
