Chris I have a question for you!

I was just looking up some info on a steroid cream to see if I could use it for something I have.. & came across an interesting bit of info. It says it can depress cortisol levels in the AM in about 1 in 6 people and if used for more than 7 days, can lower cortisol levels. Now i've been using very high dosages since I was an infant, on & off, sometimes for months, years at a time when things were hard to control.
I'm confused. Can this be related to cortisol problems?
Here is my main problems:
Allergies manifested as cough variant asthma, eustachian tube dysfunction & severe eczema
Psoriasis
Seborrheic dermatitis(both of the above seem to be allergy/climate triggered)
Ovarian cysts
Underweight
Very dry skin

I have tested allergic to several things- dust, ragweed, grass, dogs, cats & certain trees.
Hoping you can put me in the right direction with all of this =).
Thanks

Re: Chris I have a question for you!

Chris,
You are right- I have to have my blood checked every 6 months as I guess once or twice(I don't even know when) they found a thyroid imbalance but ever since, they keep checking me anyways. My doctor did tell me it would make a lot of sense & would be responsible for everything. Though my numbers have been "within healthy range" since.
What's an osteopath? Are they covered by insurance?
I think I did have those tested- I had a lot of blood tests during my bad days.
Do you need a referral? Sorry I'm not sure what happens from now, what's harder is that i'm basically in charge of this, my parents, well they dont understand things like this.
And where can you find one? Phone book?
Thanks!!
