Topical steroid addiction. Skin damage fully recovers


Highly unstable, generalised chronic atopic eczema since infancy in 20 y.o. female. No response to treatment except long term intermittent topical and oral steroids which have compromised her skin’s cellular structure and functionality. (“Red skin syndrome) She then began applying wheatgrass extract in cream form daily. However, over the following year this only had a minimal effect on her symptoms of itchiness, weeping, scaling and cracked skin.




The same patient after ceasing wheatgrass cream and using wheatgrass in liquid form instead, twice daily. After only 3 months’ treatment, her skin has improved remarkably. This suggests that the cream base in the first formulation may have been inhibiting the passage of bioactives in wheatgrass through the skin. Once the wheatgrass spray only was applied, this “blockage” no longer occurred allowing the bioactives to do their job. The patient reports no relapses since January 2003 (she has remained in contact and now, in 2018, her skin has remained normal).

Patient’s Testimonial

I’ve been using Wheatgrass Recovery Spray for my eczema for nearly 1 year. When I was a child I always had eczema. When I moved to Australia my skin got worse. I was taking steroid tablets and using cream for nearly 2 years and couldn’t stop because my skin got worse if I did. My skin was terrible because so itchy and bleeding everyday. I was always scratching myself and it was so hard to go to sleep as well. My doctor gave me Wheatgrass for my skin. It worked wonderful for my eczema as soon as I started using it. I just couldn’t believe it stopped my itchy skin. 3 days later I realized I’m not scratching anymore and I can go to sleep easier without steroid. Since that time I stopped everything and just using wheatgrass spray and cream. My skin was improved more than before. I’m very happy about my skin and my life is changed by Wheatgrass Spray and Cream. Thank you so much.
