I’m Nóra, 23, studying ceramic design at an art university, and live in Budapest, Hungary.

I’ve had eczema ever since I was a baby, and doctors always prescribed topical steroids from the age of 4 months old, never really cared to find what caused it. I used to have eczema on my inner elbows and knees, and behind my ears for about 17 years. As years passed, my skin got worse and worse, it started to spread on my neck, chest, arms, back, legs, and eventually on my hands and face.

In November 2019 my skin condition deteriorated - I was red everywhere, had to change bedsheets every other day, I couldn’t dress up. Dermatologists said I have uncureable eczema which was terrible to hear every time for years. They prescribed more steroids, although they absolutely stopped working. I was in a real deep depression.

When TSW started, symptoms appeared pretty fast. I lost my eyebrows, hair on my legs, I got shivers, temperature regulation was off, and I couldn’t sleep. I had red sleeves, my skin started to ooze badly, I was flaky like never before. This went in cycles, burning, oozing, than flaking. Sometimes I just couldn’t get out of bed for days, I was mentally unstable, short tempered and cried for days. At 8 months my skin strated to clear, the oozing stopped, the redness slowly reduced - I then knew was probably over the worst part.

Now I’m 10 months steroid free. I still can’t sleep well, but way better than months ago- I have small red patches here and there, but nothing I couldn’t handle. This is nothing compared to the beginning, and it’s getting better every day, so I can now say I got my life back.

Nadav Shraibom

Scientific Founder of Medovie

Nadav Shraibom is an expert on all things skin. Hailing from his home of Israel, his journey into the world of skincare began in San Francisco, where he studied Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Fuelled by his newfound passion, as well as his personal encounters with skin problems at university, Nadav decided to focus his efforts on developing remedies to help relieve those who also suffer from skin issues, such as psoriasis and eczema. “As someone who has suffered themselves, I understand exactly how it feels to go through something like psoriasis,” he says. “So, skin conditions are personal to me, and that drove me to look for something that could save many people a lot of suffering.”
