No, I have not I don't think tried this cream you are talking about. is that the generic of something? I meant to ask that in my above post, lol and forgot. My dermatologist has tried me on so many different ointments they are all thick and greasy and a mess to use, lol. Most of these he uses are over a $1,000 a tube, which is ok since I have an insurance card that will pay for it, but I will be losing it come January. I don't know what I am going to do after January, when they combine our incomes I make too much for any assistance from the drug companies.
Like is aid the steroid creams all work pretty good but they thin the skin something terrible, plus I am 58 yrs old and my skin is already thin because of hormone issues. I use these sparingly for that reason.
Oh man, I cannot imagine what you went thru having the psoriasis in that area, good gawd. I know exactly what you are saying about the acidic poop thing it literally scalds your skin raw, been there & done that more than I want to think about. I usually use A&D diaper rash ointment when I have that going on and it works pretty good.
My family was actually very happy that I had to go off Remicade. My husband talked to a pharmacist and was just beside himself when he found out about the drug. He demanded that I go off of it but I told him it was not his choice or his body, that I had to do what I thought was right for me. I had gone through an emergency resection of the small bowel and had 12 inches cut off, due to an abscess and a complete blockage. I got worse after this surgery and a lot sicker and went straight to Remicade. While it helped somewhat, I never did go into remission. It really did make me sick for about 4 days in bed sick then I would start feeling a little better. I think this is why he got so upset is how sick it made me every month.
Knock on wood, I have done better on Humira than anything. I hope it continues. My gi os totally against Cimzia, says he just does not trust the drug. I tried to get him to let me try it and no way. Let me know if you would on whether this cream is a generic version of something else. Thanks so much. Take care.
