I have suffered for many years with very itchy skin particularly on the hands and feet, the condition becomes more intense when we have damp wet weather, the skin becomes inflamed and any cream thatIuse to try and soothe itjust seems to irritate it further. I have taken many courses of steroids prescribed by the GP's over the years to try and control it, but the relief is short lived and often the condition comes back with greater vengeance.
Is there any alternative therapy that I could try that may give me some relief or even repair? When the condition is at is most uncomfortable ness I can hardly concentrate to do anything and unfortunately resort to scratching the skin which gives short term comfort but alas the pain is then greater often tearing the skin to ill repair. I would be grateful to anyone who may be able to help me.
Thanking you in anticipation.
