I guess you miss the South African Winter Peter? Sorry to hear about the new spots. I think some Europeans use UV lamps? Do you drink your Vitamin D?

thanks John, and yes Michelle looks like a lot of the P Vets in the EU use UV, may look at getting one if that is the case.

Hahahaha nooooo John. I'm a picture person and this is so funny. Okay so this is what I came across:

"Ultraviolet (UV) light can be used to treat some genital psoriasis, but only in special circumstances. The doses must be much lower than are normally used to treat psoriasis on other areas of the body. Overexposure to UV light can burn thin genital area skin like the penis. The pubis is the region on males and females above the genitals. This area can be treated similarly to psoriasis on the scalp; however, use caution. Skin in the pubic region is more sensitive than the skin on the scalp. Creases between thigh and groin: Psoriasis generally appears as non-scaly and reddish-white in the creases between the thigh and groin. The skin may have fissures (cracks). People who are overweight or athletic may have an infection called intertrigo, which looks similar to a yeast infection in the folds of the skin."

Soooooooo, be careful when using a uv lamp, I'm sure you don't want to look like a pink lobster down there John, rather stay with your 1% cortisone ;)

HAHAHA i am really joking about this Michelle lol,My childs farm moisturiser does okay,just looks like red patches on it to be honest, I dont let it dry out as thats when it can get painful, one place i really cant stand it there,I did manage clear it right up around 2 months ago with not a red spot or patch in sight there,I have tried LPC cream there but didnt like me , it was worth a try, Yes cortisone is the only thing that can can shift it or make it better,Its usually my battle through the winter months more so than it can be there during the summer months too,Some people are so lucky not get it there and i would rather have it transfered from there to say on my belly, it could be worse though and i know no difference without it Thank you :)
