When your child is ill, you’ll do just about anything to get them back to being happy and healthy. Unfortunately, sometimes the solution isn’t as simple as you’d like it to be.
That’s what happened for Debbie and her son, Tyler. The boy had a rare and troubling case of eczema that no doctor could treat — in fact, some of them didn’t even believe his symptoms were as severe as she described. That’s when Debbie took matters into her own hands to find help. This mother’s determination is truly inspiring.
Ever since 6-year-old Tyler Saunders was born, he suffered from severely inflamed eczema
This caused the boy terrible pain and incessant itching. His mom, Debbie, couldn’t find a solution, no matter how hard she tried.
The doctors told her that his condition was called “atopic dermatitis.”
However, the doctors argued that her son’s pain shouldn’t be as bad as it seemed.
She refused to believe them, and kept seeking answers. That’s when she found Dr. Aron.
She ran across dermatitis specialist Dr. Richard Aron’s article online regarding the condition, and immediately contacted him. She filmed Tyler’s body and reactions to pain, and he contacted her immediately. After speaking, the doctor recommended lotion, corticosteroids, and antibiotics.
Both Debbie and her son could not believe the results.
This change was created by simple solutions, none of which any other doctor recommended to her.
Within months, Tyler was back to his old self.
He was even able to resume life as a normal 6-year-old.
Now that he’s healed, he wants to give back.
Tyler is a dancer, and said he hopes to dance in public for money. What he plans to do with it is adorable.
He wants to give half his earnings to a children’s dermatitis foundation.
He hopes his story will inspire other children with his condition.
His mom has hopes, too.
She doesn’t want another parent to go through what she has.
This mother-and-son duo are proof that no matter how much pushback you get, you shouldn’t give up.
If they hadn’t kept searching for answers, Tyler wouldn’t be the happy and healthy boy he is today.
It’s crazy to think that Tyler could have been spared months of agony, if only the doctors had listened.
Imagine how quickly he could have been healed if doctor’s looked at his individual case and believed his description of his symptoms.
But only Dr. Aron did, and for that, this family will be forever grateful.
