Just started clobex and I am still miserable. The itching is so bad I want to tear my skin off. How can I get relief faster?
Hi, these are just temporary relief remedies and you have probably already thought of them but just in case you haven't; Cold baths, with E45 bath elixir if your skin is dry. Aftersun is good, containing aloe vera, if your skin is ok with that. And water sprays, kept cold in the fridge, you can buy them with moisturising agents from chemists. If i hear of anything else i'll let you know
I had a rash like this for 4 months. I went back to my Dr. and begged them to do something. You just want to scratch and scratch. I got to the point where I couldn't sleep. I tried clobex cream and ointment, antihistamines. They did absolutely nothing for the itching. Turns out I had DH. This is a result of Celiac Disease. Not everyone with CD gets the rash.
I would suggest exploring this. This disease is under diagnosed as the symptoms are commons to other ailments. Hope this helps.
