One of the many things about psoriasis that has perplexed me at times is how to manage it day to day to minimise itching and burning.
I got so confused hearing slightly different things from different dermatologists or being given fairly detailed advice hurriedly at the end of appointments that I eventually took a deep breath and spelled out my need for a Well Thought-Out Plan, On Paper!
My dermy obliged and what I got involved a nightly bath with Aveeno oil in the water, application of 3 different steroid creams, then, after a 15 minute wait for the steroid to be absorbed, an all over application of emollients. I did a double take at that! And indeed, the whole business took about an hour at first.
But when you see it working, it is so worth it.
What do you do?
