Wearing clothing

When the area is sore when wearing clothing, what should I do?

Re: Wearing clothing

Thank you for your question. Try to use a mild soothing moisturiser e.g. Balneum Plus cream (keep it chilled- works faster!). Try mild steroid ointment for 2-3 days e.g. eumovate cream for an adult, hydrocortisone 1% for a child or baby.
Try to wear loose cotton or silk clothes.

I hope this is helpful.
Best wishes,
