Estrogen Receptors

I have a condition where the estrogen receptors in my skin have been switched on...... would taking progesterone cream desensitise them and eventually switch them off, if I rub the affected skin with them

Estrogen Receptors

Hi Clarice I'm fascinated by this, as I've not heard of it before. Does the condition have a term? Is it oestrogen dermatitis? Do your symptoms become worse just before your period, or maybe you're in Peri-menopause with no cycle? But in answer to your question, yes the progesterone will suppress any excess oestrogen. It's also a potent anti-inflammatory, so if inflammation is a symptom it will help. I recommend 100-200mg/day, dependant on symptoms, sometimes more is required if severe. We do have more info on our page How to use progesterone cream. Take care Wray
