2. Every morning, he would apply the prescribed medicated cream. The cream started from the strongest in the first week and stepped down in strength weekly (so there was a series of creams). [the cream started from the strongest for the thick parts of the body and milder cream for thin parts of the body like elbow]
3. Every day, he had to 'wear' the moistened fabric all over him (incl his face, body, hands, and legs) twice a day for an hour each. The fabric was only moistened with warm water and wrapped around him. After an hour, the fabric would dry up and he could remove it (he did it parts at a time else if whole body wrapped up like a mummy then difficult for movement. So he did his hands when out for coffee with friends). [I skipped this part, maybe that's why itch didn't improve. whole of last night, I applied thick moisturiser and put on the moistened fabric on arms. seems to be better this morning].
4. Apply the Nu3 cream after shower as it stops itch quite effectively.
His condition improved 80+% after 10 days of above.
The first consultation cost was $500+ and second was $400+. Higher cost due to the cream as his itchy area was extensive (incl whole back) and needed many tubes of creams. Total he spent about $1000 odd for the two consultations before doctor examined his skin improvement and said 'discharged' and care as routine if he suffers another outbreak.
my first consultation was $400. high cost due to the many tubes of creams and fabric.
using ceradan as prescribed by the doctor. will apply Nu3 cream when it itches outside. using suu balm at home.
