I’ve been suffering from psoriasis for almost 10 years now and even though I’m somehow managing to live with the condition, it can get pretty bad at times. Most of my shoulders and scalp get completely flared-up, with painful cracks and flakes. Even though I constantly use the moisturizer my skin seem to get dry in a few minutes after applying it, no matter if I use the moisturizer dermatologist prescribed me or any other kind.

If there are fellow psoriasis sufferers, how do you deal with extreme flaking, once your moisturizer has stopped working? I’m scared to use anything stronger on already cracked skin.
