I have had LS for 6 years now. For the first 5 yrs I was using a variety of steroid creams, with some success. However last year I noticed that some areas of skin were becoming very fragile so made the decision to stop the steroid creams & explore some 'alternative' approaches. After trying different lotions & potions I have found something that works really well for me and wanted to share. I make up a cream using 1 cup coconut oil, 1/4 cup Shea butter, 1/4 cup beeswax. Melt these in a glass bowl over hot water. Once they have melted add 1tbs of zinc oxide powder, 15 drops lavender, 8 drops lemongrass, 5 drops tea tree, 3 drops geranium, 3 drops patchouli, 3 drops chamomile & whisk till mixed well. I use this daily. I also use Epsom salt baths if having a 'flare up'. Since using this my condition is bearable without the use of steroids.
