Well, my P is causing the lesions to crack. I have been bad, admittedly, about moisturizing and my skin becomes acclimated to say Taclonex and Dovonex. I will say that the tip about using Desitin on the genital inverse P has worked in the folds between leg and crotch. 80% effective or so.
So, what is some OTC body lotions or moisturizers that help lessen the severity of skin cracking? I went to Walmart and they Pharmacist there suggested Eucerin since it is a cream and it said on back for the intense therapy one (14 oz tube around $11.00) that it was for excema and P. I also read some threads about Cetaphil, Lubriderm and Aveeno (and of course there are the Equate equivalents).
Does really putting it on after stepping out of the shower help all that much? Would I be better off to just get say Vaseline Intensive Therapy or Jergens and slather that on say after showers and before bed?
