Hi Rosie. Oh the weather can definitely have an impact on your P. It's winter here in South Africa and I can feel it on my skin. I try to keep warm put extra tar in my cream and it does help. We are not all the same so I do understand if something doesn't work for you. I also itch when I'm in a humid area. My P doesn't like that climate. When it comes to winter, I try to still eat healthy. Imagine what I would look like when summer comes if I don't look after myself during winter? I'll be much overweight plus have more Psoriasis and that I do not want. No the zerobase emollient cream won't help. Well it doesn't help me. Working with animals - see, our skin can get irritated from dog/cats hair and thats when we start itching and that's when the P will get irritated too. Try wear long sleeve shirts and pants when working with them. What work do you do with animals Rosie? Always stay hopeful and stop stressing about your Psoriasis. I know it is a big stress but the more you stress the worse it gets. Everything starts with oneself. Changing your attitude and mindset when it comes to Psoriasis will have an impact on your body. Look after yourself and I know lots of people will say that having the right diet has got nothing to do with your P, but to me and some other Flaymers, it has. Since I've eliminated some food, my P improved. Now I can manage it. Once you know how to manage your Psoriasis you will find its easier to control an outbreak. You will know when to cheat on food and for how long you can cheat. What cream/ointment works the fastest etc. Everything becomes easier when you know how to manage your P. You won't even be upset when you see a spot or two as you know you've got this lol :) But keep in mind my dear Rosie, you are a P sufferer and always will be. Doesn't matter if it goes into remission or not. Concentrate on eliminating all inflammatory food. No Sugar, No nightshades, no alcohol (okay I love wine but I know when I can and cannot have some ;)

Pity some of our regular Flaymers aren't active anymore as they would've given you great advice too. If I was in your shoes again (being covered more than 60%) I would've started with fish and veggies for a week and see if the itch and inflammation subsides. Try use a glycerine soap and wash your hair with a coal tar base shampoo. Drink a lemon tea instead of coffee. No sugar. No fizzy drinks, no ice cream or whatever. Try keep it healthy for one week and I guarantee you, you will see a difference in your P. It won't be red anymore but almost like a skin color. P might not go away as yet but concentrate on the inflammation first. :)
