Have I ever mentioned my husband is half lizard!? Well, not really but he does have a pretty bad case of psoriasis. When I first met him he had one spot on his head and claimed it was from a childhood injury. Which is totally possible. Injury to the skin can cause a psoriatic skin changes known as the Koebner phenomenon but in his case I'm not sure since it has spread to more locations.
Over time more psoriasis spots showed up. He has it around his hairline, ear, in his scalp, and most recently his shins. He pretty much ALWAYS has dandruff. Psoriasis itches! I'm always picking or flicking something out of his hair. He's my personal snow globe. Poor guy.
The National Psoriasis Foundation says:
Plaque psoriasis is the most common form of the disease and appears as raised, red patches covered with a silvery white buildup of dead skin cells or scale. These patches or plaques most often appear on the scalp, knees, elbows and lower back. They are often itchy and painful, and they can crack and bleed.
He has gone to a dermatologist a few times. The creams and ointments usually help at first but then tend to do no good. My theory is that he stops using the products as frequently. He'll forget and put it on here and there. I've also heard you can become immune to the benefits of these products over time.
My husband decided to give Cheryl Lee MD TrueLipids Skin Protectant and Hydrocortisone a go instead of his usual steroids creams.
Cheryl Lee MD products are the first skincare products in the market to be truly therapeutic, hypoallergenic and non-toxic. The technology behind our amazing skincare product line is called TrueLipids®, and it has helped many people manage their sensitive skin conditions without the use of prescription steroids.
TrueLipids® technology works with the skin to augment its own barrier repair mechanisms in restoring a disrupted skin barrier and in sealing out allergens, irritants, and infection. This means that our products provide deep, effective lipid delivery (which is crucial for maximizing treatment) and long-lasting moisture while helping to repair the skin.
My husband saw no real changes in the plaque psoriasis on his legs after using Cheryl Lee MD TrueLipids Skin Protectant and Hydrocortisone for one month. It's no wonder really – doctor prescribed medications barely work on him! I on the other hand had much better success with Cheryl Lee MD TrueLipids.
I'm not sure what the deal is with my skin but periodically I get red, dry patches on my face. It typically shows up in the same spot when it does occur – my left cheek near my nose. This last time however I had the privilege of it showing up near the corner of my mouth too. Lucky me.
It's scale like. When I am in the shower I can rub it off only to leave behind a red patch. Eventually it just becomes scaly again. I have not figured out the trigger but I did find Cheryl Lee MD TrueLipids Hydrocortisone cures it.
Within a day or two of using Cheryl Lee MD TrueLipids Hydrocortisone I could tell a huge difference in my skin patches. The scales were lessening as was my red color. The pictures above have a 10 day lapse. Pretty good, huh?
Today my the redness and scales are completely gone and I have not had another relapse of my mysterious skin patches since using Cheryl Lee MD TrueLipids. Fingers crossed that it continues!
My biggest concern about Cheryl Lee MD TrueLipids is the pricing. At $50, it’s pricier than your typical off-the-shelf lotion. It’s also very different from your off-the-shelf lotion. They have a 30-day money back guarantee so there is no risk in trying it. If it doesn’t work, you can just send it back and they’ll refund you. Nice!
