Coping

Embarrassing question, but can someone recommend any home treatments for P down below? I have some red, nonscaly spots on my glans that haven’t gotten better over time and am looking to try some new approaches. Pls leave a message here or PM me.

Hi Brian. For starters, even a weak hydrocortisone 1 or 2 1/2% should help. I've treated similar spots, similar places and only had to apply for a couple of days, then I use olive oil as a preventative measure. Some natural anti-inflammatory properties with olive oil. Best of luck... BTW: Mine no longer gets inflamed down there and I still use olive oil after a shower.

Brian @brian

Thanks guys. Please keep me posted John. I hope you get some positive results

this cream stuff smells like cough sweets susan,smells nice, does give a sort of burning feel but,not,i put a little on my face,got to be careful not to get it in the eyes though,it was cheap and recommended,good to give it a blast see if things improve :)


Susan
Susan @godcares

Yeah john.. Not in the eyes. How is your face coming along and do you still use aloe vera once in a while?


 john,Hulk
john,Hulk @chewbacca

hello susan, no, i have stopped using it as my face dosnt look too bad, i use coconut oil only, seems to help with just that thankyou, i went shopping tonight into 2 stores one was lidle,the checkout guys face was covered in psoriasis,geeze, mine looks nothing even when it was bad for me,crusts around his hairline and burnt looking marks all over his face,i feel lucky susan after i saw him, poor guy


Susan
Susan @godcares

john I'm happy things are looking up for you and your face. I also have a guy down the street at the gas station. Probably looks similar to the guy you saw. I have known him a long time. I talked to him about sugar quite a few years ago. He still eats chocolate bars all the time and other crap. I don't say anything anymore. If you complain, but aren't willing to make changes, then the choice is his. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.

I use a smidge of a commercial product on my face daily that works wonders for me and my P (don’t know if I’m allowed to use its name here). Unfortunately, it hasn’t worked down below or on other body parts.

thank you susan, thats so true, i have given up bread by the way :) i tried the quinoa, i didnt like it to be honest, wish i had the taste for it shame , i tried mixing it in food,didnt help me, but, anything is worth a shot i think, i got 3 bags of nuts, munched a lot of those not peanuts though and lots of veggies at a great price and for a change,some sweet potatoes, see how i get on with those thank you susan :)


Susan
Susan @godcares

You've given up bread john... Wow you are determined. To be honest, I don't care for quinoa. I only make the flat bread with the avocado and tomatoe and basil on top. My friend makes it quite thick with the same toppings. Mine is no more than an inch high. So many people use it in chilis, soups, yada yada. Not me. My neighbor is not a fan either but when I make the flat bread she takes balsamic vinegar mixed with oil and puts that on top. It actually tastes good too. Sorry you didn't care for it. You gave it a shot though.


Brian
Brian @brian

It sounds good Susan


 john,Hulk
john,Hulk @chewbacca

yep 2nd day i stopped the gluten free bread,i am completely free of gluten free :) i can eat nuts instead to fill myself :) i have lost more weight now though,i weighed myself last night, i have lost over 3 stone if you do stone? in around 8 months as i started lifestyle changes around 9 months ago or a bit more, i lost half a stone within a couple of weeks as i was 12 now 11 and half stone thanks :)


Susan
Susan @godcares

Brian I think it's good. Just google quinoa flat bread. Really easy. I am not a quinoa fan, but with the avocado and tomatoe, that is what I love more. Because I don't eat bread, this is the next best thing and I do not do gluten free as it is processed. If you make it let me know how it goes Brian.


Brian
Brian @brian

I love to cook and try new things so I’ll definitely try it Susan. I’ll let you know what I think


Susan
Susan @godcares

john that's over 40 pounds! Good for you! Nuts are awesome for you. I love them too and never put on any weight with them. I don't eat gluten free as it is processed, but honestly I don't like the taste and it's quite expensive. I just gave up bread entirely and made my own creations. It was easier for me to do that. Good for you!


Brian
Brian @brian

Congrats on the weight loss John. I had to google what a stone compares to in lbs lol


Susan
Susan @godcares

Me too Brian. No idea what a stone is... LOL. Thank God for google.


Brian
Brian @brian

Susan. I would call myself a dumb American for not knowing what a stone equates to, but since you are Canadian what’s your excuse for not knowing? You know ... we expect more from our neighbors to the North 😉


Susan
Susan @godcares

My excuse Brian? Hmmm. Maybe I was dropped on the head as a baby. LOL. But you are right. Us Canadians are pretty darn smart. Hahahahaha!


 john,Hulk
john,Hulk @chewbacca

I just had lunch with a friend who is a pharmacist and he recommended some over the counter products to try down below that I haven’t tried before (great lunch topic, right). I’m going to try them out today and will let everyone know how it turns out.

Ive learned its a hard area to treat a lot of creams i was given were too strong to use on such a sensitive area

Ive been using aqueous cream it helps relieve the itching. Also been using it as soap instead of my normal body wash. X

I spent far too many years letting psoriasis control my life. That ended a few years ago and I’m so much happier now.
