Welcome to Flaym, Mally! Me too worse in winter. Think it's all the dry heating... I love bath oil, I use the Aveeno one and love it, it's very moisturising for me! I sometimes put oatmeal in my bath too and that helps sometimes!

Thanks I will try oatmeal what do you put it in

Hi Mally, I am happy to hear the oil bath is helping you! You can buy the oatmeal bath packets if you like, or you could use an old stocking and fill it with oats and tie the end and put it in your bath water. It is very soothing, I hope it can be helpful as well! Welcome to Flaym!

When I have a flare up I do a week of baths with dead sea salt, Aveeno oil and then moisturise when I get out. Reduces the redness, relaxes me as I usually put one of my favourite shows on the tablet while I soak. Then the treatment goes on. Relaxing is as much a part of the treatment I think.

That sounds like a great approach, Simon!
