Thank you to derma e for sponsoring this post on Psorzema Creme. All opinions are my own.
When I was 11, I developed an itchy, oozy rash on my feet and hands. For years, the doctors couldn't figure out what it was, so they just prescribed me steroid cream to keep it under control. Using the steroid cream kept it manageable, so my doctors and parents didn't think to try to figure out what was really going on.
Fast forward about 17 years and I was diagnosed with melanoma. I asked my dermatologist about the rash on my hands, and he nonchalantly told me it was dyshidrotic eczema. I get small blisters, which are irritating. The blisters pop and lead to dry, scaly, itchy skin.
Sometimes my hands get so cracked that it's painful to even use them. That's how I've been feeling for the last month or so.
I had been trying all of my normal natural remedies (I stopped using the steroid cream a few years ago when I realized all of the health issues it can cause) and nothing was seeming to work. So, I decided to give the Psorzema line from derma e a try to see if it could help.
If you haven't heard of Psorzema yet, it's a line of products made with a safe and effective blend of herbal extracts and skin vitamins such as Neem, Burdock, Bearberry, Vitamins A and E to help soften and soothe dry, irritated, scaling skin. It’s natural blend of ingredients help reduce redness and encourage healthy looking skin without the use of steroids, coal tar or pine tar.
The Psorzema line is made by derma e, a brand that fuses powerful vitamins and plants together with modern science. They adhere to the highest ethical standards when it comes to animal welfare and their impact on the planet. They came up with the Psorzema line because they wanted to help people that suffer from eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions that cause flaky skin to get away from using prescriptions.
derma e did a study on the Psorzema Creme. Aside from experiencing eczema and psoriasis symptom relief, participants were pleased with the overall feel and look of their skin.
- 96% felt very moisturizing
- 92% felt soothing upon application
- 88% helped skin look healthier
- 72% helped relieve itching
Those numbers seemed pretty promising, so I started using the body wash to wash my hands and then applying the cream as often as I could remember throughout the day. I continued to use another natural salve before bed that's too greasy to use during the day.
This is what my hands looked like when I started. They were very cracked and painful.
I like that the Psorzema Creme absorbs in quickly, so I can apply it and get back to work quickly. It does sting a bit when I put it on because of how cracked my hands are, but the stinging goes away quickly.
After a few weeks of following this program, my hands are finally starting to clear up. I think I still have a couple weeks until they feel “normal,” but at least I'm not cringing every time I move my fingers.
If you or a loved one suffers from Eczema or Psoriasis, give the Psorzema Creme from derma e a try. It's available at many Health Food Stores and at dermae.com.
Also, be sure to consider how diet plays a role in eczema and other skin conditions!
