An Alternative and an Adjunct
Despite the availability of multiple treatment options for SD, clinicians and patients are both interested in alternative options that may enhance patient safety and satisfaction. Steroid-free Promiseb Cream is a useful new addition to the treatment palette. The product’s fast-acting antiinflammatory action, shown to be similar to that of desonide %, may obviate the need for topical corticosteroids in management of mild to moderate SD. Promiseb Cream presents a suitable alternative to slower-acting TIMs, which may be contraindicated in the youngest SD patients (under age two).
I am 42 yrs old and about 2 months ago I startes getting pain in my neck on the left side. I just thought I slept wrong that night. Over the last 2 months the pain which I can describe as numbness and like someone is shoving needles in my arm, has traveled all the way down my arm to my hand, mainly my thumb and middle finger but sometimes I noticed lately my palm part of the hand. The worse part is the “needle poking” / pain in my upper arm. It has got worse over the last 2 months. I cant turn my head, bend my head down, etc without the pain being severe in my upper mid arm only located on the outer part of my bicep which travels downwards which leads instantly to my hand going numb. I am not one for but it is getting a little annoying and unsure if I need to see a Dr. I was tested about a yr ago for Carpel Tunnel in both hands which the Dr stated all was fine.
Thanks Anna for your sharing! Yes, I had personal experience of wrong diagnosis for pink eye as well. Really need to see an experienced eye doctor – seen two eye doctors at the emergency department and got the diagnosis wrong, and I went back to my usual eye doctor who is very senior and he got it right. Luckily, it was remedied in time without permanent damage to my cornea, since then, I only see back my own senior eye doctor. Thanks again for sharing, totally agree, but be careful though cos antibiotic eyedrop can’t really be ‘shared’ but so glad it worked for you the last round 🙂
