The 2 moisturiser trial

Had P on and off for many years 🤗

To alleviate the drudgery of applying creams and ointments i came up with this idea. I use a different moisturiser on different sides of my body. It just adds a bit of interest to what is a monotonous task. At the moment I’m doing double base on the left and aquamax on the right. I go through stages of applying creams regularly for a few weeks/months and then go back to using nothing after a while. 😁 any recommendations of moisturising creams are most welcome 🙏

I found the best were Doublebase Dayleve Gel, and Doublebase Gel. They gave me the best relief from the itching of my guttate psoriasis. . .with the Dayleve version slightly better.

I bought them in 500g pump dispensers.

A P sufferer for over 30 years, through good and bad times.

I use an emollient called Enopen, similar to Cetraben. I also use Dovobet daily. Having used both for years I would first apply the dovobet then the emmolient, only to be informed a few months ago I was doing it the wrong way round.

Anyway I find that helps.

The only time I tried different products on different sides was as a test when first starting the new product.

Good luck.

At present I am using Avon Handcream!! Nuturing with glycerine - it is so helping - I have PPP on my feet - also Childs Farm Moisturiser (Tesco) All day I am applying whenever I sit down - to stop it drying out. Dermovate ointment before bed too - I have been prescribed Enstilar Foam but am loathe to use it just yet as my feet seem to be looking so good 'at the moment'!!

I find anything that soaks in is good :)

I’ve changed the moisturiser 😁 now I using Diomed on the left and QV intensive ointment on the right. I’m experimenting with different things on my elbows, these 2 creams seem to be working quite well at the moment, Boots Psoriasis treatment Cream and Sorion Cream, both these creams have stopped the scaling within a week which i class as a vast improvement

Hi London West.

It's a nice feeling when you get something that works. You seem to be putting them creams though there paces :).

Dream Cream from Lush works really well for me.
