But they'd sell/prescribe me those expensive creams and ointments and such each time, without hesitation.

Topical issues (etc.) only go away/appear to be managed temporarily if the inward thing causing it isn't determined and changed/eliminated. Most of what was recommended to me by the folks highly trained to help me made me worse instead of better more often than not. I found it all to be pretty much a crap shoot.

Missy's suggestion is right on target. Products that we've been taught to use for "good hygiene" and "cleanliness" contain toxic stuff that wreaks havoc with us way more than most folks realize, yet many of those things aren't required to even be listed. Like "fragrance", for example.
Unfortunately, science doesn't seem to have figured out what causes these
reactions in some of us, or why some of us develop autoimmune disorders,
so most treatments are indeed a 'crap shoot.'

I know that gut health can make a big difference in our overall health, both
physical and mental (brain), and the use of biologics and DNA transfer from
fecal matter are increasingly being explored as treatments that change the
gut flora and possibly improve health.

This is what the new doctor is discussing but she frightened Sarah's daughter
with the whole gamut of possible (although largely unlikely) side effects.
