Treatment

Roll on 29th June for another dermatology appointment. Can’t believe this flared up again after 10 years and can’t control it again! The last week has been bad, my feet and hands look like I have contracted something disgusting and painful too!

I had this amazing cream last time, worked a treat so I want it again. However it’s a bit different this time as I don’t have as many puss nodules but thickening of the skin, on my feet anyway. Just hopeful for advice and something to ease the pain of cracked skin, life sadly doesn’t allow me to moisturise all day!

Sorry to hear that Debbie. Was there anything that you did differently that you noticed? Or added stress? Good you have an upcoming appt with your derm, I hope the cream works just as well for you as it did last time!

In the meantime maybe give fresh lemon a try on a small spot to see if it can be helpful for you :)

was it a steroid, they usually work great but not good in the long term, i put myself through steroid withdrawl last year, a very flakey experience, took months for my face to sort out,they stop the adrenal glands doing their job, you stop them, skin can come back worse but steroids are not good for your inners, some say they can cause cancers etc?good to know these things,yes try a lemon as Michelle has said, its natural :)

So sad when it spirals like that... it soon gets out of hand. It's great you've got your appointment set to see what your options are. Maybe there will be one that suits you very well! Try not to worry if you can about how your skin is looking. Hopefully it is temporary until you are under control again...

I hear so my much about using lemons but worried about any burning or making it worse, what exactly do you do??

Hello Debbie, cut a slice, sqeeze and rub it in, it may start to itch and feel a little sore that will subside after a little while, ,dont put on sore patches unless you want to scream :)try an area thats okay and see how you go,i put childs farm moisturiser on the top of it if it burns or itches that helps :)
