Success with Dermacinz in the UK
From Diane

Hi.  I’ve just read your article about Dermacinz [Dermacinz in the UK ].  I developed psoriasis patches out of the blue about 2 years ago — funny, I was going through a very stressful time at work, I was devastated when these patches appeared on one knee, both elbows and smaller ones on other areas of my legs.  I tried the usual meds from the GP — none of which made any difference at all.  Then I came across this product by chance.  I prefer to use more "natural products" when possible, so I was keen to give this a try.  I have had a big improvement but it took longer than 2 weeks and if you don’t keep it up your patches do flare up — though  nowhere near as bad. It is certainly useful to keep it at bay but by no means a cure.  If anyone out there has got a cure let me know a.s.a.p!  The only time the condition has practically disappeared has been when I was on holiday in Cornwall.  Perhaps the sun sea and sand are the cure?   -Diane


Ed’s Response:  In the original correspondence (link above), I speculated about the contents of Dermacinz, guessing, since “cinz” is zinc spelled backwards that it was a zinc-based topical like Dermazinc.  I still haven’t found a confirmation of this.  Your email, though, was motivated by my guess that, if it is a zinc-based product, and if it works for an individual flaker, it will probably work fast — within two weeks — but won’t continue to work for long.  Your experience contradicted this:  “... it took longer than 2 weeks and if you don’t keep it up your patches do flare up, but nowhere near as bad.” 

Your case is a good reminder that everybody responds differently and general statements about P-medicines are dangerous.

Thanks for helping to keep me honest, Diane.  -Ed
