Anal psoriasis

Posted Sun 14 May 2017 11.30pm by mattkirkbride13

Please does anyone have any advice on how to treat anal psoriasis? I've tried many creams and ointments and nothing seams to work other than steroid based medicine. I'm really worried about the long term effect of using steroid ointments on such a sensitive area! Please does anyone have any advice?

Thanks in advance.

Irascible septuagenarian fed up with the psoriasis constantly at me :wink:

It's impossible to suggest something as what helps me might set up a reaction in somebody else.

Now that is out of the way, I have found Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Visibly Renew Elasti-Boost Body Lotion helps with the self chafing result of sitting and getting hot when walking. I got my last pot from Boots but also saw it in Tesco only yesterday.

I too suffer with this and now cannot use my steroid cream due to pregnancy its a nightmare. I even had a blood test for food intolerance and cut out dairy but no improvements. Would love to know some natural creams that work .

Seriously guys the best and gentlest stuff you can use on sensitive areas is vaseline forget all these expensive creams that you have to check the ingredients on for additives that may make you sore just vaseline, it's completely safe to use anywhere and keeps the skin very hydrated try it it works

Irritable skin balm by an Australian company called MooGoo is the best.

I haven't been diagnosed with it in this area but I am pretty certain that I have it, it is so itchy and raw sorry if tmi! I have tried preparation H, lanacame (sp?) Aloe Vera wipes etc and recently I picked up a tube of diprobase ointment from my local boots store and I have noticed a vast improvement on only one application! I would give it a whirl! Hope this helps.
