The Healing Curve 


When following the programme of The Combined Approach, there is in clinic a recommended review appointment for troubleshooting, two weeks after starting the three levels of treatment.




Although nothing will be achieved without habit reversal, the appropriate application of treatment at Levels 1 and 2 are also essential for complete healing - and all three levels involve the patients active involvement.

To ensure everything is "on track" there are useful questions to ask:


  • How are emollients being used?
  • Is it understood how to use Topical Steroids?
  • Is the hand tally counter still being used?
  • How is habit reversal being practised?
