For many years I have suffered from acne and then eczema which is helped by keeping the skin moisturised with prescribed emollients: Diprobase, Dermol 500, Aquamax, Doublebase Gel. 4 years ago after day surgery for appendix I ended up 11 days in hospital with sepsis.

Skin reaction to the vaccine?

Since double vaccinated I've had a rash from hands, arms, shoulders, legs, outer thighs, sides. The topical steroid my GP usually prescribes for my occasional very dry patches doesn't work and the rash isn't going away although some days better than others depending if I am hot or not. I've had it t...

Lamellar Ichthyosis

I live in Portugal. I actually have Lamellar Ichthyosis. But I found that a creme that works for Psoriasis works for me. I think in the UK it is called Dovonex; active ingredient Calcipotriol. It cannot be used all over the body but only in certain places where it can alleviate the skin pressures. I...

Spotty rashes in the sun

When on a sun holiday, I always end up with itchy red spotty rashes on my skin. Prickly heat? I use suntan lotion, take antihistamine tablets for a week prior and during my holiday and stay out of the sun as much as possible. Is there any way to prevent this or if not any way to treat it effectively...
