Eczema cream 'robbed me of my twenties'

Aug 23, 2018

An eczema sufferer has revealed she was suicidal during her two-year battle to wean herself off powerful steroid creams. Steph Shaw, 28, from Hull, was left bedridden and jobless as she tried to overcome her addiction to the controversial medication. Miss Shaw has suffered with the common skin condition since she was a child - but it worsened when she turned 18 and robbed her of her twenties, she claims. Doctors prescribed her a cream to help but she believes it left her skin constantly itching and red raw, after she became addicted to it.
