Hello fellow flakers,
I've suffered for years with Psoriasis
on my face. Gone to doctor after doctor, who prescribed heavy toxic drugs like Antibiotics
and cortisone. (One even asked me "did you try washing your face with soap?" :| ) Those doctors were worse than useless, the Antibiotics
gave me horrible constipation which took two months to get over.
Two days ago I was walking through the mall with my usual dry red itchy flakey face when a sudden intutive urge pushed me towards the cosmetics counter at Shoppers Drugmart. I asked the cosmetician what to do about my skin and she immediately gave me a tube of 5% Urea cream. I took it home and tried it, and felt immediate relief of the tightness, I felt my skin become moist. About eight hours later my skin stopped flaking and felt more supple. In the morning (usually the worst time) the swelling had vanished and I had no flakes at all!
Right now I am at approx. hour 36 of the treatment and apart from a little redness, MY SKIN IS HEALED !!!!!! My wife can't believe it. I can't believe it. I'm going to give that girl at the cosmetics counter something I never gave any of those doctors - my repeat business.
I will give a report next week.
The lotion is called "Eucerin", from the Beieserdorf Company of Hamburg Germany, supplied by Beieserdorf Canada, St-Laurent, Quebec. Active ingredient: Urea 5%. Here is some more info about this product: http://www.talkeczema.com/webpages/features/feature_benefits_urea.htm
