Allpresan 3 with 10% urea

February 1, 2013 — 11:20pm

I’ve had terrible psoriasis on my hands for 5 years, and long ago stopped trying to find that “miracle” cure. Steroid creams helped flare-ups somewhat, but thinned my skin to the point that my hands were always cracked and bleeding. I tried Allpresan 3 with urea, and my hands have almost normal skin now. I use it after I shower in the morning, and again before I go to bed. I’m still careful to use gloves when I have my hands near household chemicals. I haven’t used the steroid cream for weeks. I read some research that stated that skin with psoriasis and eczema has 60-80% less naturally occurring urea, which is a byproduct of your skin. I can clean my house again, and tie my kids’ shoes without wincing!!


  • That all sounds good, my PS is plaque variety, but on sole and palms, I am using steroid cream Plus any good greasy ointment like Hydromol and wear elastic socks which helps to stop chafing I had 3 months UvV therapy last year and it was almost all gone, but started coming back before Xmas, and is now nearly as bad as before, cant have any more UV till May at least.
