Hi, I’m a 60 year old female who, until this year (2021j have never had any skin issues. I’ve now been diagnosed with guttate psoriasis

Hi all, I am 60 years old and never had any skin issues until earlier this year when I found myself covered in plaque psoriasis. I've been diagnosed by a private dermatologist and GP and was firstly using Diavobet (steroid) and Diprosalic for many months and with limited affect and I don't really like using steroid creams if I can avoid. Anyhow, I recently seem to have turned a corner by using Hydromol ointment (available freely in the UK and reasonably priced) along with a prescription of Promethazine - an antihistamine tablet which I take at night. The Hydromol was recommended by a friend and it's honestly worked so well and reduced irritation even in sensitive areas. I hope this is of some use to those suffering and I wish you all a happy festive season! Here's to a 2022 free of Psoriasis....

Hi - it’s good to hear of products that appear to give some relief- how easy do you think the Hydromol would to apply to the scalp? Desperately seeking ideas at the moment!

I don’t think there’s an issue applying Hydromol to the scalp, but, I found Diproderm solution better. Hope you get some relief.

I think E45 has a similar effect to Hydromol - also worth a try.

I tried E45 and many other creams to little or no effect, so, for me it was Hydromol. But, hey, whatever works, right? Sending healing thoughts to all.

Thank you for advice - my main issue is applying anything to the scalp through the hair! Will persevere hoping the current flare settles down 😌

I hope so too, Sarah. I know many are skeptical, but, I also found Dr Goldner a sound reference - I haven't read her books, but, find her videos inspirational. Here's to a 2022 of less or no psoriasis! x
