I used Oilatum or Oilatum plus, really helped when my gutatte psoriasis was driving me mad with itching.

Then I also used " Doublebase Dayleve Gel" moisturiser/emollient (I found it better for me than the other version "Doublebase Gel" )

I always found oilatum plus really good for my psorasis and eczema flare ups. Have recently had it withdrawn from my prescription. Both my gp and pharmacist recommended aqueous cream then epaderm as a soap and bath alternative, i am however sensitized to both. I am currently using insane amounts of aveeno instead as a moisturiser. Can anyone suggest an alternative to oilatum plus, am currently unemployed so would either be available on prescription or very cheap. Have been recommended to try a dilute bleach bath but am a bit nervous about it.
