    I am using a steroid cream bethnovate, it can take months at a time to clear up my dermatitis and then once its gone i get a withdrawl flare up from stopping the steroid cream, is there an alternative medication i can use instead of bethnovate?

    I have heard many people who attest to skin issues clearing up when they do one of two things...or both:

    1) Eliminate Wheat - gluten is a nasty substance that the body doesn't like.  Most people have a low-level auto-immune response to eating it even if they don't get dog-sick like someone with celiac.  Elimination of all wheat products (and I mean not even a sprinkling of flour to thicken up gravy) can often lead to wonderous health results.

    2) Switching to Raw Dairy - the pasteurization process transforms real milk into a frankenfood that is highly alergenic.  Switching to consuming only raw dairy will often clean this issue up within a few weeks.
