I would like to thank you for all your help and support througout the ordeal I went through with my daughter's eczema. Without you and your wheatgrass, I would have just keep going back to cortisone as it's the only cream that the Specialist will recommend and didn't realised how much damaged it was causing my daughters skin especially the face. I have not applied cortisone on her face since using wheatgrass and will never use it again. I can't thank you enough for helping me heal my daughter's face. Thank you once again from the bottom of my heart. I definitely highly recommend your wheatgrass products to anyone.
The appropriate strength for each person and situation depends on many factors. For example, babies absorb topical steroids faster than adults, so they may require a low-potency steroid. Areas of the body where your skin touches other skin (think: armpits, rectal area, etc.), as well as sensitive areas like the skin on your eyelids, tend to absorb topical steroids more rapidly, so those regions of the body also usually require a low-potency steroid. However, thick, rough skin on the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet usually absorb topical steroids more slowly than other parts of the body, so those areas typically require a more potent steroid.
