Hello everyone, i'm a newbie!! fourteen months ago, I took my elderly aunt out of a nursing home to come and live with me for various reasons, this has not been without its challenges I can assure you.....but we are plodding along and she has (touch wood) been better that she had in the 3 years previously in care. We have various problems but the one I would like your advice on today is itching and scratching, she has psoriasis in her head and a patch of skin near her bottom that at the first available opportunity she digs, she tells me it is a habbit, and I ply her with various creams that have been prescribed. I have tried to explain how itching all the time just makes the problem worse (she often draws blood. The two areas can look so sore, the cream helps, but the relief from it gives is short lived. The whole problem is exacerbated by her dementia and she naturally forgets what she is doing. Does anyone else have similar problems with their loved one. I am currently using Dovonex in her head (but this leaves her hair really greasy) and aqueous and diprobase for her other area.
