Re: scalp psoriasis and elsewhere......

Hi! I wanted you to know that you are not alone-I have the same bikini-area problem! I've had psoriasis since I was a little girl, but was too embarrassed to say anything until a few years ago-I couldnt take the torture anymore! I have tried a few different ointments from my docor (family and dermatlologist), and the generic brand Clobetasol Propionate Cream, usb 0.05% has worked the best. BUT, since it is a steriod, I have to use it only once in awhile, since that thins your skin. In that area of my body, I'd rather not have that! So, most of the time, I use Vasaline-the antibacterial kind. It helps keep my skin moisturized and helps with the cracked, sometimes raw and even bleeding skin to feel much better. It's hard to find-I live in the midwest and find it at Drug Emporium. Hope this helps-trust me, I understand and feel for you!
