I wishi could , i been battling with those places all my life, steroid creams like hydocortisone by 1% was the only thing that helped but steroids are bad so i dont recommend it especially long term use i know, i been through steroid withdrawl last year ,not pretty at all :)

Had steroid cream before from doctor but he says can't prescribe it a lot as it can thin your skin

It does indeed, i got enough thin skin to prove it, i did over 30 odd years with it, it did work though,i had less flakes on my face when i used that but, its not good i know :)

I think my skin is immune to the creams as it doesn't help. Except for the greasy cooking lard moisturiser lol

Welcome to Flaym Ann! Sorry you are having a hard time finding a good cream. Have you ever tried a type of oil for a moisturizer? Coconut & almond oil are my favourites, always so soothing.

Use to love the coconut oil for my skin but it’s doing nothing for me now it doesn’t help at.. think I’ve used it for to long 😩

Welcome, Ann! I just use olive oil down below if I need to. This was on advice of a midwife whilst pregnant and worked pretty well!

Also be careful of the soap you use when you are having a bath, rather wash with aqueous cream as the molecules are bigger (apparently won't penetrate your skin then). At least that is what my GP told me. I found it to be soothing for my skin all over when I washed with aqueous cream instead of soap.

As a guy I've used expensive virgin olive oil on my delicate area when needed works a treat, and thankfully hasn't returned.

I tried every cream,prescriptions ect I was given or read about then I changed Drs. She suggested"Triple Paste medicated ointment for diaper rash.. Miracles of miracles, IT worked . I ordered it -on Amazon for $25.00. I have used it for a month and no bleeding,no inverse psorisis.I pray that it keeps working. I hope this helps some one.

@mary1932 I’m going to order some and give it a try. I’ll try anything. My feet are what’s bad on me. It really is the left one- it’s on top of my foot, around my ankles. It itches and it’s so frustrating. Will this ever go away ??? I’ve had this since I was born. I have tried everything—- I’m doing the injections now. It’s helping everything but my feet. 😂
