Worked when nothing else did
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 December 2021
I've had stress-related psoriasis on a number of parts of my body for quite a few years now. My GP has prescribed all sorts of creams and tablets over this time and, although some of them worked up to a point, nothing cleared up the rashes for good. I've used Eurax, E45, Aproderm, DoubleBase, Epaderm, Cerave, Balneum and loads of others. Only Balneum seemed to do anything long-term but never got rid of it.
I then found Recuren cream and, as it had a lot of high ratings, thought I'd give it a go although it is expensive. I was a bit concerned when it arrived as it's a small pot. How I wish I'd found it years ago - I would have saved myself a LOT of money. Fortunately, a little goes a long way so I didn't use it up too quickly. I ordered it mid-November and my psoriasis patches are almost all gone. I'm a very slow healer as I am hypothyroid and have T2 diabetes.
This cream has worked where nothing else has - all the others either improved it slightly and kept it from getting worse or spreading but none ever cleared it up. I now have some mild acne on my face, mostly from wearing a facemask, and I'm using it on that too. Again, it's working well.
As it contains menthol, you have to be careful where you use it - where the skin is delicate, it has the menthol "burn" but it's quite a pleasant feeling and soon subsides - for me, at least, obviously everyone's different.
If, like me, you've tried others that haven't worked, give this one a go. Hopefully, like me, you'll find it works. I have no hesitation in recommending it highly.
