Thing is too, is too keep that area clean as possible as urine can make it worse and then moisturize, i am praying this dont come back,Last year it was painful,had to pull my trousers down to pee instead of unzipping fly , tip is to put a tissue after you been in the area in your underpants,so try not get any dripping urine on your bits that can make it sore i know , I will keep updating to see if i can stop this coming back,who knows, wish me luck, been good so far :) :)

It's horrible its one of my problem areas and it's on my bum crack too sorry no nice way to say that my problem is Sometimes I scratch in my sleep , mine is mostly all hidden places but I would gladly trade this area with a area in plain sight

Yes it can be verry irritating indeed Stacey, yes i get the bum crack soreness too,and it can go in between the groin area, that was bad quite a while ago,all that has gone, hope it stays that way ,yes i would to trade it from there and put it somewhere else, We all dont seem to get it there us flakers , my friend who is a flaker also dosnt get it there but he does get it on his bum crack,when i told him i get it there he was surprised by that ,just being unlucky some of us, no diet or anything i do can clear it, mild steroid and moisturizer has helped so far and steroid has helped for years though i limit it a lot now ,how long, i do not know it will be okay with this , i wish you well stacy

Thank you stacy, hope all gets better for you too thank you :)

I hope it gets better for you Stacy. Most will not say anything about the P on their pvts, but its something that needs to be discussed as it can become very difficult to treat. I don't have any P there but I would think to keep it trimmed up and clean. Maybe some should try the 1% cortisone to treat it like John. I think it also depends on the underwear one wears. Some material can aggravate our P as well. I wish you well Stacy and you too John. :)

Thank you Michelle,yes tight fitting under wear maybe a problem if genital P is present ,yes 1% cortisone now and again like once a week is okay for me, i used to use it pretty much daily there for years but once a week is okay though i am clear there so dont need to use it there at the moment thank you, yes i am good thanks Michelle :)

Ooh Stacy ...that bum crack story is bad.. I also get it there & on the cheeks....currently have a few itchy flakey spots on my bum cheek....


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Aw Ellen so sorry to hear. I used to get 2 spots on my bum crack but with my tar mixture and applying it religiously 3 times a day it has disappeared. I still apply cream there for prevention. I do hope you all find relieve in the difficult places. Xxx


Stacy
Stacy @S

Yes Michelle I find keeping totally hair free if ya get me helps a lot and can only wear cotton underwear top and bottom , I had one particular sport bra that had no cotton lining in it oh god I was bad after that one , there's no point in being embarrassed I knkw some people do be and it's easy to talk here but I'd say when my turn comes to go see a dermatologist it'll be a different story I'll probably be morto 🙈 I think it's easier talking about it there cause everyone more or less in the same boat and very understanding


Stacy
Stacy @S

Oh Ellen it could drive you to tears sometimes I'm sure I got caught the other day in a hard wear store trying to adjust my underwear and having a sneaky scratch ... the shame 🤣

No shame...it was unfortunate, but you will find understanding here...

Hi Ellen lol same here when I'm unable to scratch. It must look so funny.
Where I am only a compound pharmacist can make up certain ointments/creams and charge very well for it!

Mines a mix of LPC coaltar and aquous cream that has been made up Ellen, , still watching to see results with it, nothing at moment , been using it for a couple of weeks so i dont know if things will get better, no change on my toxin portal patch, that looks quite big at the moment but not flakey :)


Ellen
Ellen @ellen4

True story Jen ... hahahaaaa ..... we have to really see the funny side of this or else we will stress & no healing will take place ...
John we have an LPC called Epizone cream for Psoriasis ...I have tried it also with no results...


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Hi Ellen. The lpc we buy isn't strong enough. I just get some more tar at the chemist and ad it with the cream to make it stronger. It works for me. My short-term spots are gone but I'm struggling with the long term ones. I think it will disappear if I use steroids?
That sounds really painful Stacy. I found that wearing cotton underwear aggravates my P which is why I went for lace instead. Its a soft light fabric and breathable.
Sorry to hear the lpc is not working for you John. I know that in winter the lpc doesn't help a lot but I religiously apply it twice a day. When I get extra spots in winter, it usually disappears quick during spring. Like now. :)

Its okay Michelle,Anything is worth a try isnt it ?Maybe with the sun combined it helps you Michelle as you get plenty of sun in SA?I dab a bit here and there and keep going with it, though i dont use it daily each other day and keep going to see,I dont give up :) steroid is the only thing that can clear it though i dont use it that much and i only use 1% cortisone from time to time,As i said before, if i knew smothering my spots with peanut butter would work, i be happy to do that, i am willing try most things as long as its safe, Thank you Michelle :) :)

john, Psoriasis Terminator @chewbacca

Yes, thats the one i have Ellen, its similiar to a coal tar cream i had years ago, smells the same as i remember it, dont know what that type was though, name etc , maybe just coaltar, the one i had in the 70s as a wee child though was really bad, i smelt like a newely laid road all over Thanks :)
