Topical Steroid Withdrawal is a painful, debilitating condition. Burning, inflamed skin, loss of movement, nerve damage, insomnia, skin shedding and many other issues often lead to being bed ridden for months. Children may not be able to attend school and adults may have to quit their jobs. TSW Syndrome usually begins while using the mainstay treatment for skin conditions - topical corticosteroids. Not everyone who uses topical steroids will develop TSW Syndrome. This condition is preventable -- but only if people are made aware and educated.
ITSAN is the only nonprofit in the world supporting, advocating, and educating about Topical Steroid Withdrawal Syndrome for a global community. We support members going through this catastrophic, preventable condition.
The ITSAN Board relies on a small budget to accomplish big goals and recognizes there continues to be a worldwide need for greater awareness, pivotal change and ultimately prevention. Your support helps us continue to collaborate with healthcare providers, legislators, patient organizations and suffering individuals.
With your loving support, we will be able to enhance our website, provide more opportunities to bring our community together, and produce materials that can be utilized to educate doctors, schools, family members, and our world. We need your help to stay relevant, legitimate, and up to speed with other patient organizations as we work shoulder to shoulder to create impact and change for all of those suffering with this painful, misunderstood condition.
We call on you to make a donation today in the spirit of healing for everyone affected by Topical Steroid Withdrawal Syndrome.
