Hi, I'm 21 and been suffering with crohns for years but only today had a proper diagnosis. I suffer from anemia as a result and have very dry skin all over my body. I strongly recommend diprobase as I've tried nearly everything else and it hasn't worked. It smells clinical but you'll notice a difference straight away :) good luck

I must admit I'm glad to see I'm not alone in suffering from very dry skin. The steriods can cause dry skin but I am off them now (and on anti imflammatories) but it's very bad at the moment. My doctor has given me aqueous cream and diprobase cream Which I use every day sometimes twice when it's painful (ask about the aqeuous, it helps soaking in the bath with it on). I think winter, jumping from the cold and heating, doesn't help either.

Dry Skin and Aloe

Pure Aloe Vera helps with dry skin. It works from the dermis layer outwards so the new skin underneath is always moisturised too.

You can find any of this stuff at www.shopwithkirsty.co.uk

Hope that helps.

The dry skin is caused by anemia. Talk to your doctor about vitamins you can take for the anemia and you will most likely see a difference with your skin. I have also found that Palmers Cocoa Butter helped me. I even use it on my face. Exfoliating really helps too. Hope this was helpful.

I have horrible dry skin. I have found that if I use Cetaphil body cream, not the lotion that it helps tremendously. I also use the Cetaphil cleansing bar on my face as well. Good luck
