Oh john... Take care of that pet... Steroids are ok the odd time, but you and I know the dangers very well.

Don't forget, olive oil or coconut oil and the likes works wonders down there... At least for me it does. I've used some of my super strong steroids sparingly in the past, and yes, I know they say it is too strong for pet lizards, but one or two applications on some select spots used to clear me up for days. Then back to oils.

thanks susan and tim,hope this cream comes, dickey thats his name by the way said,that the cream he got which i orderd as he recommended it , did the wonders on his lizard so, i hope it does for me and its not a steroid, i have done coconut oil,my lizard he dosnt like it,i had used sudocrem but,thats not really helping,havnt tried olive oil yet though,may have to wrap my lizard in a band aid if i use that,the joys of psoriasis,one place i wish i never got it is there,i have been tempted by steroids again as i know it helps,just hope my lizard turns into a none battered sausage :)

Seriously john. You should be a comedian. Hope you get some relief with the olive oil. Maybe "bag" it with the oil... Hmmm.

Fellas,
I suspect if we put our heads together on this we may be able to get a handle on the problem.

john,Hulk @chewbacca

thanks darren,yes that makes sense it turning purple i remember that from 1985 when i last went though i went a lot as child to light therapy,cant say it really help me thats why i was put in hospital twice for long periods,i used to itch and feel burnt also after light therapy ,yes i am okay thank you ,going through steroid withdrawl,my face was really bad now its calm, just the pet lizard to put it politely,is not doing good,skin is okay not turned into big plaques still more spots as winter comes aswe all cover up,got some chinese cream that was recommended to me as it helped clear someones skin up,its worth a go,didnt cost much £4 free post but, it is a small tube,the guy swore by it and its not a steroid, i shall see how i get on with it,hope it gets better for you,are you still doing diet changes or not? it is a choice though and hard i know and in my case .very expensive,price one pays to get skin and joint improvements thanks darren :)

darren @bigd1982

Diets a bit hit and miss mate at the moment have good days and bad need my work life balance to be more structured then I can get back on it let me know how u get on with the cream be interested to see how u get on willing to try anything as docs want to put me on tablets in jan


 john,Hulk
john,Hulk @chewbacca

thanks darren, just want to be more comfortable down there, yes my doctor said the same for tablets last year he said, there is another answer for your psoriasis,i didnt see him about psoriasis it was about depression, not through psoriasis,i had a lot of rubbish going on at the time as my ex girlfriend put me in a bad situation,doc was looking at my notes and looking at my hands maybe ? and said about my psoriasis and there is an answer and i said whats that, pills he said, i said no i am okay thanks i have had it all my life its not bad and that was it,i will let you know how i get on here with it, i am not a big fan of creams to be honest but, if it helps then thats good for me, i dont put creams on my body so, thats good but, get slight itches now and again, think thats from the cold and i am well wrapped up,diets are a choice so, i dont knock anyone if they dont want to do or try or its difficult etc,if you do the pills ,let us know how you get on if you like ? maybe life changing for you who knows thanks darren :)

What cream? I use [...] cream/grease but the price went from $10/tube to $300 when I went on Medicare. Have some left but use it very sparingly. When runs out what should I try?


 john,Hulk
john,Hulk @chewbacca

helloshar, i cant recommend any meds here,flaym dont allow that, i couldnt recommend any to you any way as they are all rubbish to me though steroids did get me out of bother but are very bad in the long term after my 30 odd years of use,why a lot of derms and docs love handing them out as they know they will calm the skin to a degree,i am trying this one in my private region, i will let you know if there is a miracle through private messaging or if i forget than private message me in a couple of weeks and i will let you know how i get on thanks :)
