    Hey, yeah I've read about it being used for nasal polyps and more recently I've read it possibly being used as a treatment for alopeca and asthma in the near future which is great news!!
    Well that's if we can actually get our hands on it..It's disgraceful the long wait for it as people continue to suffer daily!!

    Wise old elf... how are you getting on with it now and How long has it been in total since you started?

    I think it's been 19 months im on it now, and still working a treat, no side effects of any note. My skin still gets kind of dry on occasion but I imagine no worse than anyone in cold winter weather.

    I used the link I posted above to mail my TDs (again) and I'd encourage you to do it too.
    Ray D'Arcy did a piece on this during the summer as well , he had Prof Irvine from James' hospital as well as a presenter from lyric fm who suffers from eczema on to discuss it. I tuned in completely by accident.

    Brilliant to hear it's still working for you and to be able to pass on some hope to my other half about it. Hopefully it'll be available for us soon too 🀞 We heard that interview... He treats my other half 😉 really trying his best to get it through I think ðŸ‘and we're writing to TDs also. Let's see what happens. Thanks for your update.. keep in touch.. wish yah well 🙂🀘

    Just in case people don't know, this is now available on DPS, but I understand the HSE are reviewing every case individually before they'll authorise it, and they'll require all other avenues (like UV treatment or systemic immune suppressants) to be exhausted before they will allow it, but it is there.

    It can only be prescribed by a Dermatologist and is a "High Tech" medicine.

    Overall good news that it's available at least. Also, they've changed the delivery from a syringe to a pen.
