Moisturizing Body Butter or Lotion for Psoriasis

Good Morning Beautiful Ladies! I'm looking for a good body butter or body lotion to help get my legs super hydrated.  I"m 37 and am having a psoriasis outbreak on my legs (never had it on my legs before) and my Dr. wants me to go on a chemotherapy like drug to help elivate the symtoms. I do not want to do this at this time, I do not feel it's that bad to go on this drug that could potentially make me feel bad. I want to try a more natural approach on my own first. I have done some research online but am also hoping that you ladies can offer me some advise on maybe something that has worked for you personally or something that may be worth giving it a try that I haven't heard about. Thank you in advance.

@spedteacher74 For some reason I can't repond directly to your message. Yes, the medication is what the determatalogist wanted to do. I've heard of lots of people with little or no side effects from it that have had great results. But then I've also heard to opposite. I do have steroid creams but the issue I"m having now is that they look like "pimples" and it takes forever to put on each spot. Plus the rubbing of jeans, etc... doesn't help. And well shaving, it's just a big ouch Smiley Sad

Hmm, that sounds like my legs right now.  I have crazy skin.  I can say that the FAB cream has made my pimples just be just a little bit raised in a couple of days and I expect this to clear up in a day or two.  I don't think it would hurt to try a couple of creams before going onto such serious drugs.

Re: Moisturizing Body Butter or Lotion for Psoriasis

At first I thought they were pimples or bites of some kind. Then it turned into the psoriasis. Gotta try out this FAB cream, especially if it lasts while. Thanks!

Re: Moisturizing Body Butter or Lotion for Psoriasis

I don't know if what I have is like yours, but they're all over my legs.  I think for me it's the combination of a lot of salt water, heat, sunscreen and showering.  (At least my legs are not in agony -- until I discovered I was allergic to Oxybenzone and found sunscreen without it the rash I would get was insane.)  You might go through the cream rather quickly depending on how much area you need to cover, but use the concentrate sparingly.  If you have a beauty supply store nearby, pick up a packet of little spatulas to get the concentrate out -- it's that hard.  (Or PM me and I'll put a couple in the mail; a package lasts a long time.  I keep mine inside the jar now that I've used enough of it.)

 

It seems worth a try before going on serious drugs, and if it does you know good, you can return it.  Or ask for a sample if you have a store nearby.  That's what convinced me to buy a jar after an associate told me about it and gave me a sample.

To me at this point I will try anything that is not oral medications. If it was worse, I may lead to this as an alternative but right now the only problem is it looks like I have something contagious! LOL Thank you for your help. I just stumbled across these boards a few weeks ago and everyone has been so nice and helpful!

Re: Moisturizing Body Butter or Lotion for Psoriasis

I have extreme eczema but not psoriasis... I have been using Keihl's Creme de Corps in the liter size.  No scent to irritate.  My only complaint is that I wish it was paraben-free.  

 

I also use plain organic jojoba oil in my bath, or slather it on the worst spots before/after a bath to protect, and under my heavier moisturizer -- during really difficult periods.

 

 

Re: Moisturizing Body Butter or Lotion for Psoriasis

Do you think the jojoba oil helps you? I've seen a lot posted about the jojoba oil and coconut oils. 

Re: Moisturizing Body Butter or Lotion for Psoriasis

P.S. I also had luck with Protopic topical Rx ointment during really intense flare ups resistant to other drugs.  I know Protopic is prescribed sometimes for both eczema and psoriasis.  just FYI!  Feel free to send me a PM if you want more details.

Re: Moisturizing Body Butter or Lotion for Psoriasis

I use Eucerin for my eczema.  The company has a new product out specifically for eczema.  I haven't tried it yet since mine doesn't flare up until November-ish.
