& D Ointment — Add P to the List of What It’s Good For
morning Ed! I hope things are well. I
wrote to you last month about my guttate psoriasis outbreak after a strep
infection [Crash Dieting Stopped Her
Flaking]. I also had the plaque kind as a child. My guttate had been getting worse all over my body except my
face. I have been trying
everything over the counter to see if anything worked and waiting for the
warmer weather and sunshine because I knew it would help.
did try the diet thing like I mentioned I might try and have lost a few
pounds, but the really good news is this,
A+D ointment! You would not believe how it is helping
regress my lesions in both flakiness and redness! I know when I was a
child we never tried this. For
people who have their psoriasis limited to just a few areas the old
"saran wrap" routine and A+D ointment might really help.
My psoriasis is just too widespread to do that.
I urge you please and your readers to try A+D ointment for a couple
of days if they have not already. It certainly will not hurt. God bless!
Response: You sent me on a
fascinating search, Nancy. I
found a variety of references to A&D ointment for healing new tattoos
or body piercings but none mentioning P specifically.
That’s okay ... once again (thanks to you) FlakeHQ breaks new
ointment refers to vitamins A and D which — perhaps not so
coincidentally — happen to be the only 2 vitamins in the index of Dr.
Lowe’s book, Psoriasis: A Patient’s Guide.
Of course, they are not referenced in connection with A&D
ointment. Vitamin A is a
relative of the widely used P prescription med Tazorac.
Several topicals are related to Vitamin D, including calcipotriene,
Calcitriol and Dovonex. Could
it be that you’ve found an over-the-counter formulation that behaves
similarly on lesions?
anyone else tries this, please let us know what happens.
And you keep us posted, too, Nancy. -Ed
