Many doctors are not aware of the benefits of the use of topical hormones in rebuilding the damaged tissue. The steroids only help with the pain, itch and inflammation, and calm the disease down – they do not repair the damaged skin. But we’ve found that proper use of topical estrogen and testosterone, in many patients can help to restore color, texture, elasticity and even repair structural damage, as well as help unfuse fused tissue.
One purpose of this website is to educate both doctors and patients about the benefits of various treatments, including topical hormones in treating LS, and the methods we have found that work. We might note here that this protocol is not just anecdotal – there are many studies to back up the use of topical hormones in addition to steroid treatment.
NOTE: An important reminder here: This is a serious medical condition that MUST be diagnosed and treated and monitored by a knowledgeable physician. Do NOT try to self-diagnose or self-treat.
