before and after with Dr. Aron

From the Avene Clinic to Dr. Aron

My daughter (9 yrs old) has had eczema since she was a few weeks old. We initially held it at bay with diet/breastfeeding and moisturising daily. She had a major flare following contact with raw egg and she was subsequently diagnosed with egg, milk, and dust mite allergy. She has always tested negative for coeliac disease and tolerates gluten well. We reduced/avoided all triggers and her eczema was managed well except for a few flare ups that were easily managed by short term low potency steroid until she was about 5.

Within a week of starting school Phoebe was covered with inflamed infected eczema. We diligently followed all the medical advice and finally reached a point where we could manage but not control her eczema with daily bleach baths, wet wrapping, steroids and topical antibiotic when needed. In 2014, Phoebe’s condition deteriorated again and so we saved and saved and sent her to the Avene Clinic for treatment. That treatment was amazing and it was the first relief she had experienced for years. When we returned home to Australia her skin almost immediately flared again. She had picked up another infection during our travels. We managed to get her skin back under control but it slowly deteriorated until we decided to return to Avene in September 2015.

We were extremely hopeful that with the second trip to Avene her skin would strengthen and this time she would be able to keep it clear and smooth. This time around even Avene didn’t work. Phoebe seemed to be allergic to Staph bacteria and nothing seemed to be able to control it.

Out of desperation I had posted a Facebook photo of Phoebe and a friend of a friend pointed me to Dr Aron. I was hugely sceptical. I did the research and the theory of the Aron Regime stood up, so I signed up. I am one week into treatment and its the first time Phoebe’s eczema has been under control for years.

SO, if you are doing everything; topical steroids, topical antibiotic, antihistamine, bleach baths, wet wrapping, oral antibiotics, probiotics, moisturising several times a day, and are still struggling with controlling your child’s eczema then you are where I was on 7th September this year.

Picture #1 is of Phoebe with an overwhelming staph infection. We were doing steroid, topical antibiotic, compresses/wet wraps, antihistamine, bleach baths and moisturising several times a day.

Picture #2 is of Phoebe on 23rd September after weeks of two different oral antibiotics in addition to all the treatment listed above.

Picture #3 is of Phoebe the night she return after 3 weeks of intensive hydrotherapy at Avene, France. There they had to continue oral antibiotic after she flared again in week 1 of treatment.

Picture#4 is of Phoebe after 1 week of the Dr. Aron creme. We are now doing 5 apps of the creme on her body and 3 apps on her face. No wet wraps, no oral antibiotic, no bleach baths, no additional moisturiser.

The most amazing thing is that Phoebe is no longer itchy.

Seeing is Believing

This is my 2 week update, using Dr. Aron’s treatment for my child’s eczema.

They say that seeing is believing and if that is the case, then my daughter Elizabeth should certainly help many of you see what a difference this past 2 weeks has made. 14 days of Dr Aron and I don’t recognize this happy, cheerful, playful, smiley child. Before 2 weeks ago, she was always crying, itchy, screaming, miserable, not sleeping and it made all of us stressed to the max and downright sad. Her life revolved around wet wraps, gauze, bandages, anti itch creams, Atarax and daily baths that made her scream bloody murder. To say I was a prisoner in my own home is an understatement. I’d take her to the grocery store sometimes and I’d get asked if she had measles. Not now. 2 weeks ago I told her that we were no longer wet wrapping and that we were going to make her better. Part of me thought I was lying to her. Most of me knew I was lying to myself because I really thought, like every other treatment, that this wasn’t going to work. Well, the joke is on me. Not only has it been working, it has worked in a way I can’t even comprehend.

We started out at 5 applications a day and are now down to 3. I’ll be contacting Dr Aron in a couple of more days, as he requested, and I’m hoping to drop it down even further. I’ll do another update in a week. That should be a good one because she will see our family doctor and he hasn’t seen her since a week before this treatment started and I’d taken her in because she’d torn her arm open again. Last time he saw her, it looked like she was attacked by a cheese grater.
