Re: Dematoligist claiming long term low potency steroid can cure EC

I posted this information that was listed in an article. A doctor has treated EC patients with the following drugs. You might want to look up these drugs to see what they are since they worked for EC patients. However, it did not state how long the patients needed to use the drugs.

Effective treatments:
-triamcinolone acetonide
ointment (scaly white lesions)
-metotrexate (desquamation)
-fluticasone propionate
0.005% ointment (fissuring and cracking)
-mometasone fuorate 0.1%
ointment (scaling and cracking)
-mometasone fuorate 0.1% ointment and calcipotriene (scaling and cracking)

Noneffective treatments:
-vitamin D3 ointment
-vitamin A derivates and topical steroids

*I looked some of the drugs up.

Triamcinolone acetonide is a synthetic corticosteroid used to treat various skin conditions, relieve the discomfort of mouth sores and in nasal spray form as an over-the-counter relief for allergic and perennial allergic rhinitis. It is a more potent derivative of triamcinolone, being about 8 times as potent as prednisone.

Methotrexate may cause very serious side effects. Some side effects of methotrexate may cause death. You should only take methotrexate to treat life-threatening cancer, or certain other conditions that are very severe and that cannot be treated with other medications.

Fluticasone propionate is a corticosteroid derived from fluticasone used to treat asthma and allergic rhinitis (hay fever).

Mometasone furoate is a glucocorticosteroid used topically to reduce inflammation of the skin or in the airways.

Calcipotriene is used to treat Psoriasis (a skin disease in which red, scaly patches form due to increased production of skin cells on some areas of the body). Calcipotriene is in a class of medications called synthetic vitamin D3 derivatives. It works by slowing the excessive production of skin cells.
