I write mainly to get support from TSW warriors and understanding from friends, and create more awareness in Singapore community about TSW / TSA. Hopefully soon, TSW warriors won’t get as much stares when walking out on the streets.
I write to provide anyone wanting to understand / going through Topical Steriod Withdrawal (TSW) an additional case study to refer to.
I don’t write as well as the average Singapore young people, but I thought this is a good way to finally brush up my writing skills and improve my grammer / language. My written language has deteriorated greatly since high school.
Hence any free language review on my posts is greatly appreciated! 😀

Topical Steriod Usage History:
I used high-potent strength, Bethamethasone Valerate 0.1% in 100gm tubs, perhaps 8 tubs a year for 25 years. I have had around 15 2-week courses of oral Prednisolone, and a 6month period of the same drug. I used at least 40 tubes of Protopic. I had Clobex for my scalp and used perhaps only 3 bottles (phew). Only condolence is that I had never injected steroids.
This is my stash of steriods left before I started the TSW journey:
