I see. No, I would just apply the oil straight onto the skin after my morning shower and it helps with the itch for the rest of the day. When I get back from work in the evening, it starts to get itchy again and I should be applying the oil again but I get lazy and end up scratching unfortunately. 🙁
If youre really interested, I could get you the brand and where to get it from (Mom bought it for me, so I will have to ask her).
I dont know how much do vitamin D creams help, but i wanted to give it a shot so I bought one online with 10,000IU here. It should arrive this week hopefully.

I mean, I’ve used dovobet gel during my first year I was diagnosed with psoriasis and it was a miracle drug as it worked very well overnight. From what i understand, it is a steroid vitamin D analogue. So MAAYBEEEEE the non-steroid vitamin D cream i ordered might help me. No harm trying, right?

Sorry to kind of leave you hanging, but I should mention the D3 cream was pretty important to my healing.
The specific cream is this one below. You can read the user reviews and see that it is pretty amazing. Pretty much everybody that bought it for a skin issue gave 5 star reviews, while people that took it foolishly to raise serum vitamin D levels generally rated it lower resulting in a net 4 star review.

Many of the reviews are for psoriasis or eczema with a few that mention seb derm. Note that these are all on the same spectrum so what works for one usually works for the other. Plain dandruff is also on the spectrum. It kind of goes in this order: dandruff<seb derm<psoriasis (eczema is the same but sort of a different animal that might only respond to hydrocortisone, etc.)
This cream doesn’t smell wonderful so should be applied at night. As you rub it completely in you might notice your outer layer of skin coming off in tiny little balls, like it is some sort of gentle exfoliant.
Vitamin D promotes skin differentiation and decreases skin proliferation, is the end result triggered by the root cause which is some sort of inflammation. Here is a quote from a study I read about a year ago. I’m sorry I didn’t copy/paste the source when I originally found it.

>One 2012 study found people with low levels of vitamin D had lower average skin moisture. They state further that…
“Topical supplementation with cholecalciferol significantly increased measurements of skin moisturization and resulted in improvements in subjective clinical grading of dry skin. Taken together our finding suggest a relationship between serum vitamin D(3) (25(OH)D) levels and hydration of the stratum corneum and further demonstrate the skin moisture benefit from topical application of vitamin D(3).”

and…you can substitute the word “seb derm” when you see the word psoriasis.

>”Keratinocytes in the skin have ample vitamin D receptors, and are capable of converting vitamin D3 into 1,25 (OH)2D3 or calcitriol, the active metabolite. Calcitriol in turn regulates epidermal proliferation and differentiation. Topical application has been found effective against psoriasis, a hyper-proliferative state of keratinocytes. Psoriatic patients have low vitamin D levels. Keratinocytes also have ample progesterone receptor sites.
Although the skin makes vitamin D3 from UVB rays, it also suffers from UVB and UVA damage. This can cause a significant increase in free radicals. In particular UV radiation causes a rapid and significant increase in hydrogen peroxide levels. Free radicals damage DNA, cause inflammation, death of skin cells, skin ageing and skin cancer. Vitamin D has a photo protective effect, reversing the above effects. It’s a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant too, as is progesterone.”

There is also a progesterone cream that you might try in addition to the D cream, although i cannot vouch for it. Lauric acid is in coconut oil. Raw coconut oil is very heavy and my skin personally can’t tolerate it to be left on or it breaks me out.

This is my experience with this cream. Your mileage may very.

It’s the vitamin d + sugar avoidance, IMO. Try some topical vitamin D and supplement the hell out of it orally + K2 and Mg unless you have a medical reason not to.

This stuff is awesome and has other ingredients that are probably helpful, but cutting open capsules does a bit too.
