About 3 years ago I was exposed to Stachybotrys and had an instant rash that covered my hands, arms, and face. My right eye was completely swollen shut in a matter of seconds. From that day and continuing for over 6 months I had a horrible rash on my hands. I used many things, including extra virgin olive oil, numerous creams and lotions, lots of essential oils, and even a topical steroid prescribed for me by a Dermatologist. Nothing seemed to help a lot, until I started using the Regenolone Cream from Young Living. That got the rash under control and my hands didn't hurt so much, or look so horrible.
A few months after being exposed to the Stachybotrys mold, I was bitten by a Brown Recluse spider on the vein in my neck, and there was a terrible big spot there, but the Young Living Purification oil blend got that under control, left no mark and no rotten skin, and I didn't even go to the hospital. Thank you Young Living! You saved me a lot of money and a lot of hassle with that one little oil.
Then, in November, 2012, I suffered from Kidney Failure which the doctors said was probably caused by a virus. I don't have diabetes and no history of heart disease or heart problems, which are the usual reasons for Kidney Failure. So the virus was the only thing they could identify as the reason my kidneys failed. They did say that it was likely that the mold exposure and the spider bite contributed to my body's inability to deal with the virus. We have found a number of doctors who say kidney failure is or at least can be caused by mold exposure. That is the reason I bring these things up here.
With kidney failure and the subsequent dialysis, and eventually Peritoneal Dialysis, came a requirement to sterilize my hands many times a day. Sometimes I was washing my hands 5 or 6 times an hour with strong antibiotic solutions. This constant washing takes its toll on my hands. The rash or eczema (according to my PD nurse) that I had experienced when I had the mold exposure came back with a vengance. It was horrible. Waking me most nights with painful itching and a lot of discomfort. Not to mention the fact that my hands were an embarrassment.
I started using Young Living's Thieves Foaming Hand Soap and the Thieves Hand Purifier instead of other more toxic options as soon as I was free of constant oversight by medical professionals. However, the rash or eczema persisted even after I returned to using Young Living products. So I returned to using the usual and varied lotions, all the Young Living lotions, extra virgin olive, many essential oils, coconut oil, and even a $200 hydrocortizone cream from the dermatologist with no results. I remembered having had good results with Young Living's Regenolone cream and began using Regenolone Cream twice a day. After a week of doing that, my hands were noticeably better. Not completely well, but definitely better.
So, for the past year my hands would get a little better from time to time, and then they would be worse again. The ugly, cracked, peeling, red, itchy, swollen and painful skin on my hands came back any time I went without the Regenolone Cream for even a few days. The itching would wake me up again at night. The red, cracked, peeling, crusty skin felt rough. I remember hearing one person with eczema say their hands felt like an alligator's skin. That was what my hands felt like. This made me self-conscious and terribly embarrassed. I didn't want anyone to see my hands.
Then we went to the Young Living Convention in June, 2014 and they released a lot of new products. I was drawn to one product in particular, the SheerLume. Here is a picture of the bottle it comes in:
I purchased a bottle. After I got back home, I took pictures of my hands before I started using the SheerLume. I applied the SheerLume cream to my hands morning and evening for 7 days. Below are the before and after pictures of my results. The Before Pictures are on the left. After pictures on the right.

This is what both my hands looked like after using SheerLume morning and evening for just 7 days. I was astonished! Amazed! Thrilled! And they still look like this today and I have only used the SheerLume once in the past week.
I don't have to hide my hands any more.
Thank God for Young Living.
If you or someone you know has to wash your hands frequently, think of nurses, health care givers, kidney dialysis patients, etc., please share these photos with them. I hope the SheerLume will help you and them as much as it has helped me. I had lots of folks ask me was it eczema or a rash and I don't really know. The nurse said it was eczema, but neither of the doctors ever said what it was. So, I don't have a diagnosis. My feeling and belief is that if you have any kind of skin condition it would be worth trying a bottle of SheerLume to see if it can help you. It's worth trying. And I hope you will share your results with others too.
There was no greater thrill than having my husband touch my hands, and say: "Honey, your hands are so soft and they look so beautiful again."
