Cortisone and Progesterone

by Cheryl

I was reading some papers that talked about how having a Cortisone shot can prevent progesterone from binding to the osteoblast site.

My question is: I use an over the counter cortisone cream for my eczema that is on my hands. I have been using this cream for a long time because my hands won't clear up. Will this cortisone keep progesterone from doing what it is intended to do in my body?

Cortisone and Progesterone

Hi Cheryl The amount of cortisone in the cream is so low I doubt it will affect your bones. If concerned you could use the progesterone cream too, for more info please see our page on How to use progesterone. Eczema is so difficult to resolve, but the preservative sulphur dioxide is something you should look into. This causes eczema on my hands too, so I have to avoid all drinks and foods which contain it, and there are many! Even vinegar contains it, many fruit juices, wines, pickles, dried fruit. Please try eliminating it from your diet and see if it helps. Take care Wray

Wray, Thanks for the advice, I certainly will cut out all sulphur dioxide. It would be so worth it not to have my hands break out. They itch and start to heal and then break out again. If you have ezcema you know exactly what I am talking about.

Thanks again. Also wanted to tell you thank you from my husband; you sent him some great mixtures of powder vitamins and minerals - his RA is in remission now!!!

Hi Cheryl Good heavens, I didn't realise it was you! I can't believe your news, how wonderful! I sent you an email, but it seems you didn't get it. I wanted to know how he was getting on, as I was happy to send more. Do let me know. And yes, please avoid the SO2, lethal stuff! Problem is it's hidden in so many things. Take care Wray
