Thanks to all who responded to my question about hydrocortisone treatment to treat adrenal gland exhaustion which according to Dr. William McK. Jefferies could be causing CFS. I have not tried it yet. I just ordered his book called SAFE USES of CORTISONE. I ordered it through Amazon. I want to read more about treatment before I give it a go. Any thoughts out there about using a little hydrocortisone cream. It's available without prescription and used to treat itchy skin problems such as poison ivy, rashes etc. I know many medications can be absorbed through the skin. I'd love to ask Dr. McK. Jefferies that question. TA TA.
