Hailey Hailey disease is a rare condition characterized by outbreaks of painful rashes and blistering of the skin, mostly in the armpits, groin, neck, under the breasts, and between the buttocks. The blisters can break and sometimes become infected and raw in a seemingly unending cycle of outbreaks. Microscopically the lesions show a "dilapidated brick wall" appearance in the epidermis.
This patient had suffered from severe pain for many years. Also, she had been treated with topical steroids most of this time and became addicted to them. After contacting me, she began applying wheatgrass extract to her widespread damaged skin once a week. After just one month, the dark, patchy rash had diffused into homogeneous, mild inflammation. As can be seen in the bottom picture, her skin has completely recovered, not only from the topical steroid damage, but also from the Hailey Hailey condition.
9 April, 2017 - pre daily wheatgrass treatment. Patient in severe, chronic pain. Ulceration of skin, open wounds, marked inflammaton.
15 April, 2017 - (after 6 days wheatgrass spray once daily) There is marked reduction in inflammation, pain and exudate (weeping) and blunting of ragged wound edges. Note: lesions may appear to have enlarged, but this is due to camera angle.
15 May, 2017 - (after 26 days wheatgrass spray). Inflamed, hemorrhagic edges of original ulcers have resolved and the inflammation is significantly reduced. Pain has resolved on other affected areas along with marked improvement in skin healing.
The same patient just 10 days after the first wheatgrass extract application. Note the remarkable reduction of inflammation on her back and elsewhere.
On the right, note the striking reduction in inflammation and significant new skin development over the entire affected area.
