thats not good ,sorry about this cassierose,are putting anything on them? thanks
13 Oct 19:04
I do that. It's not easy to resist especially in your sleep. I can be good as long as I'm aware or what I'm doing. Then I go to bed and wake up with cuts from scratching in my sleep.

John I'm always applying cream! I woke up in the middle of the night yesterday scratching so had to apply some cream...I was still itchy though xD
Bambi that's exactly what I'm like!!

13 Oct 19:11
I sometimes wrap them to make it harder to get at in my sleep.
13 Oct 19:12
I use a herbal one instead of a steroid cream and then hydrous ointment as a moisturiser 👍🏻
Plus sea salt in my baths xD

I use cetaphil cream, I cannot use anything with perfumes or dyes due to making the itch worse, had been a trial and error type ordeal

Sorry to hear that Cassierose. Just keep trying the suggestions on this site. Loads of ideas. I'm sure you have seen my posts about being healed with my diet and lifestyle changes. No medications now at all!

Cassierose I wonder if the sea salt is not a great idea. Salt water always helped me in the past when I went in a salt water pool. It does dry out the skin. I wonder if you put a bunch of oil in your bath if that might help you. I have been having baths with olive oil or even vegetable oil in the bath water. I sleep with very silky feeling skin.

That’s my biggest problem!

Hey Susan. Whenever I go on holiday I spend a lot of time in the sea and it clears my skin up quite a lot, that's why I bought it for my baths. I'll definitely try out the oils though! Thanks (:

I agree million percent with the salt bath as it's anti bacterial and yes it dries the plaques out fantastically it's a fine are Himalayan sea salt bath soak completely submerging all areas for minimum twenty mins as hot as you can take then immediately after while the skins still wet either an emollient thick like zerobase diprobase and what I call the morph suit wilhicj is actually a dressing retainer used for ppl who have burns usually you can only get on script at the hospital I got them after light therapy which has been discontinued because I hit my quota but the suits basically leggings and full sleeve t shirt in a special fabric stop the moiturr being drink up by the fabric I also used to wrap cling film over the emollient then suit on top of I had a party or event two days ahead as it's a quick temporary fix and the following day it's flake central gross disgusting etc but after you de scale carefully then moisturise or topical steroid 24 more hours later you would never know

Also I take anti histemine tablets three a day to combat itching as that's my Achilles heel too

Same here. However some lotions seem to help.
