I love my 2 kids, wine F1 and hubby in that order 😁😁😁
Hello Claire, Sorry about this with the burning,I dont use creams from Docs,I have been given creams that have burnt and made my skin very sore years ago as an alternative to what i used to use before they stopped it, So many bad chemicals in cream medications,I know a lot of people here have done ice wraps to cool the skin down, Hope a good recovery for you
Michelle, cheers for the heads up, as you said though, not cheap, it would have to be a deal for me though. I could afford it without but I'd need to sacrifice some other things which I'm not keen to do right now. That said, there's a case in the news right now about a mother going to Canada to get the oil to treat her sons chronic seizures. It was taken from her at UK customs though. However, next day, the UK Home Secretary gave them special dispensation to get it back. This has brought about calls for UK law to come into the 21st century. This would be good for other people who take seizures, I work with a couple myself. Legalisation might also bring the price down, which could benefit people like us, who might benefit although our conditions are not life threatening.
I managed to find some child's farm cream in boots this week..... I don't think it's a miracle cure and have only used on my arms and hands and after three days it does look better less red and fading....... Will keep using it and compare to legs as just using zerodouble on them.... Will keep you posted and a bonus it smells nice 😊
Hey Claire yes I've seen lots of coverage of this on social media, it is the thing to talk about right now in the psoriasis world! I think for some it is reported as making a massive difference, for some no difference, and some creating aggravation... so a real mixed bunch. But it is cheap and (in theory) easily available over the counter, so many are giving it a go! I haven't but I was given a sample size bottle that I may try at some point... but I am also currently testing skin reactions to foods so I don't want to complicate my results by adding new moisturisers into the mix. Otherwise I'd slap it on and see what happened!
Hi Claire (and Jacquie!). I'm with Jen, oil soaks are excellent for my scalp. I've started doing them in the last year and it has helped so much with the itching and flaking. But first I got it under control a year or so ago by using a scalp "blitz" that alternated using coconut oil based prescription ointment to soften the crusts, and steroid cream to thin them. Then after about 3 weeks of that it was so much more manageable and I stopped medicated creams and switched to the oil soaks a few times a week before washing hair. I also use Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion on my scalp if it gets dry now (which is much less because of the oil soaks). It is very light and sinks right in so I don't need to wash hair after using as it doesn't look greasy. Its got oatmeal in it and is very soothing for me. Hope this helps!
