It is important to use the correct amount of topical steroid for your eczema, as instructed by your healthcare professional. Topical steroids should be applied with clean hands so that the skin just glistens. It can sometimes be difficult to judge how much steroid to use and there are guidelines on the amount required to cover body areas that are affected by eczema. These are based on the Finger Tip Unit (FTU), and explained in detail in our fact sheet which you can download as a pdf from the related documents to the right of this page.
Q: Why doesn’t TIMC participate with insurance companies?
A: We feel strongly that we want to deliver the types of care we provide without the encumbrances of insurance companies telling us how to practice medicine. The patient is the customer of insurance companies, not the doctor. That is why we give our patients receipts (called a HCFA form) to submit to their respective insurance carriers. In addition, we believe that paying for services rendered contributes to the success of our therapies. Patients who pay for care are more likely to follow through with suggested programs because they participate in their care and take ownership of outcomes.
My 2 & half year old Staff was given this as he has a pinkish skin underneath & the vet said it was better than frontline s guards against mange that he could pick up from foxes . I used it a couple of months ago .. Fine .. used again on Thursday , came in from work Friday & my boy seemed like he had had a stroke , he can not raise his head , collapses all the time on his front legs . I rushed him to emergency vet where he has spent the night he has deteriorated , they do not know what’s wrong they think its Neurological so he is to have an MRI on Tuesday …. How can a happy bundle of fun be so ill within 24hrs .. The only thing I can think is that I used this product & have since read similar stories … I’m praying my baby can get better & return to health . I have spent the last day just crying because I can not believe what has happened to him x
