Do you know Xorsone Cream can treat itchy raised bumps skin rash quite effectively?
Some time ago, I found out that I had a skin rash on my forearm area, near to the elbow joint.
I did not know precisely when I had this skin rash problem.
It had discolored patch with lots of small raised bumps.
Because of my occasional scratching, it left the patch slightly rough and flaky. (see photo below)
At times it could be very itchy, particularly when I was under the hot sun and when I perspired profusely.
Xorsone Cream For Itchy Skin Rashes
From what I read from the Internet, it could be one of those common skin problems.
According to dermatologists, having raised skin bumps could be an infection, an allergic reaction, a hereditary condition, or even skin cancer.
They say that most bumps need no treatment, unless they cause discomfort.
I tried applying toothpaste at night before I went to bed. This treatment only managed to reduce the itchiness for a while.
But the skin problem was not fully treated. At first I thought of consulting a skin specialist.
But then, thinking that it was nothing serious and also it is rather expensive to seek treatment from a skin specialist.
From my own personal experience, I am comfortable and confident with the service of Malaysian government hospital.
The only woe is the long wait due to lots of patients.
The doctor prescribed me a cream labelled as Xorsone 1:4 cream.
After applying it over the affected area for just a couple of time, the itch was gone and gradually the rough patch disappeared like magic too.
It is very effective.
