That is true, but MD's do not do they a therapy. DO's are trained in this therapy only, it's part of their training.

Options do nothing, dermatologists think you have dry skin. I used one for years, then stopped for the rest. They assume you don't know the difference which is typical. I had a cervical and brain mri for something else a few months earlier and re-read it. I have spent a lifetime doing research, discovering the problem and confirming it with doctors. Frustrating I have had to do all the research for all my illnesses. Not sure why one dermatologist did not figure it out. All I got was try light therapy but that will cause issues with lupus. Plus insurance didn't cover it.

When contacted by the author, Professor Zochodne replied: “I can indicate that I have no interest in it, have not endorsed it or plan to endorse it and am disappointed our work would be quoted for something without evidence.”
Also Dr Geoffrey Bove. also disagrees, says sugar water is pseudo science.

I will have to look for that other Dr tomorrow but anyone who says there is no dependency without doing clinical trials is only doing this for the money. Praying on people with chronic illnesses is the same as selling snake oil. I have suffered since the 1980's & in 2000 begged a Dr for something, she prescribed the hydroxyzine which is a lifesaver, natural methods do not work for me. My arms are full of scars to the point people asking what is the white spots on arms. The article is all advertising, that's how he gets people to his product. I posted it because he says all these things with no clinical trials, so he is assuming or making up results which is sickening to desperate people. I also use Aspercream per primary, it has lidocaine in it. It's for pain which I always thought was the culprit. Also Triamcinolone cream which is free thru my insurance. Ice, and other products do not work, my itching is severe. I take ibuprofen for all my pain, and any other pain I learned to ignore it like the fibro diagnosed in1984. Because of all the diseases being diagnosed, each next one was worse than the previous.4 rare, at least 5 autoimmunes, however on their site says fibro not an autoimmune. Every Dr I saw said they believed me and only took one yr to get diagnose thru rheum.

Pseudo science, no clinical trials, or research, quoting another doctor who was shocked he is used in the advertising. But like I always say if it works for you fine, but it's never been proven that it works, it is sugar coated science, feel good junk. http://www.fmperplex.com/2014/01/27/324/

I've makes it worse for me. My only thing I can tell you is to get insurance. Otherwise use over the counter Aspercream per primary suggestions, not the roll on but the cream. Anything with lidocaine, on shelf or try Amazon.

In response to 47 frustrated. I totally disagree with drs blaming everything on fibro. Get new drs. Lazy attitudes when they don't know what's wrong. Please soon your symptoms sound like a lot of other things but not fibro. Back issues like bulging discs not fibro. Find a pain dr for back and see a DO Dr instead of an MD they deal with muscle, & nerve issues. Also have gentle manipulations, she gently moves arms and legs, DO's trained in this. Like a massage but insurance pays. Done in 15 mins.helps immensely for back issues, usually first 3 weeks, then back moves back. But you can move amazing how well it works.

I have a supplement plan added to medicare. I have plan F, expensive but since I have so much wrong. I also have the top plan for part D. To help with drugs. My hydroxyzine and lyrica copay each $37 a month. Lyrica for tingling in arm, rest free covered by insurance. I also use aspercream 4% lidocreme, really helps with nerve pain. Had cortisone shots in back. Had 8 shots in lower back at once, did nothing. Very nice pain dr. I manage well, it's getting up in morning, can barely move my body excruciating pain, take 600 mg of ibuprofen, feed dog & me, back to bed. Rest definitely helps me. Whatever works for everyone is great. I have had a few seizures last few yrs, take keppra. When I go home and cuddle with dog life will be great. Broke ankle, fell Dr said fall again, 3 times never walk again. Have ms, in rehab can't stand 2-3 mos.
