Cromolyn Cream Recipe
You can make this cream yourself using any form of cromolyn (Gastrocrom, Nasalcrom, Intal or cromolyn eyedrops). The recipe for it was developed by a nurse and pharmacist who are both mastocytosis sufferers. Nasalcrom is available over the counter, and is probably the cheapest.
- 2 tsp glycerine
- 1/2 cup of Vanicream (ordered from the pharmacist) or other thick lotion (such as Eucerin)
- 1 whole bottle of Nasalcrom
Thoroughly mix together all the ingredients. Apply daily to the desired area. Be sure to start by dotting it onto a small area of skin away from the face (inner forearm, maybe) daily for three days before putting it onto a large area.
