Your problem is a big thing, believe me, because I have the same thing and it does spread. I understand completely what you are going through because my two or three spots spread to about a million spots in about a year. It is much easier for you to treat it now. Here are some things that seem to help.
-clobetosol proponate is a steroid ointment that works really well, especially with dovonex, which is also an ointment, but it is vitamin d cream.
-check the side effects of celexa to make sure skin break outs is not one of the side effects.
tons of cream to keep the skin moist. I use Eucerine cream, hemp body butter from The Body Shop and Rosemary-Mint Body Butter from Trader joes. You will want more than lotion, use heavy cream, especially right out of the shower to trap in the moisture.
You can soak in baths with baby oil also.
Try not to scratch on it to sluff off the skin. You can spread it further by doing that.
Please Please Please work on it now. It is so much harder to deal with it later. Mine has now spread up my back and I can not reach the places that itch like crazy and need lotion anymore. I am putting cream now on a soft back scrubber to reach the spots I can not get to.
I feel for you, believe me!
