For the most part, no but...lol. Sometimes my skin is so sensitive (down under) that when touched it cracks, but my husband always knows where the lubricant is..

Hi All, thank you for your feedback. I don't have P 'down there' - i have it on my legs however it makes me feel extremely insecure..
And because of this reason, my legs are ALWAYS covered up. I don't have the funds to see a dermatologist or buy expensive creams. Any suggestions for creams that aren't too pricey for my legs please?

Try washing your legs with water mixed with vinegar and then put vasaline on your legs after you dry them.

Hi Everyone. I have psoriasis on my ankles but it has never affected my sex life. Although I feel self conscious about it, I don't let it get me down. I use Linotar cream for my psoriasis and it really works and the coal tar has anti-inflammatory properties and anti-scaling properties. That is all medication I use for my psoriasis and I would recommend it to every one suffering from P.

Hi Michelle, i use those products on my legs too and it does help but only temporary and the itch comes back again.. it seems that I have to apply those creams every hour to keep the itch away..

Hi Ruth. While using my Linotar cream I also maintain a healthy diet. Linotar keeps my P in check and the short term P disappears actually. I don't itch at all and I don't have any flakes. I'm taking a shower now instead of having a bath as I used to itch from the hot bath. It was such a lekker scratch. I actually miss it. lol.
