Our expert says:
In essence, it is very important to treat the pruritus/itching of the skin. Scrathing the lesions, will make it larger and the condition worse. I suggest that you try Ativan SL 1mg, twice daily, as well as Prurata tablets, twice daily, in order to take the itching away. These tablets do not contain any cortico-steroids and should not increase your weight. Ativan is a product directed to alleviate tension and anxiety and LSC is linked to anxiety. You can apply a moderate topical steroid, like Repivate, twice daily to the affected area.
Unfortunately, the above medication is only available on prescription and you will therefore, have to consult your doctor.
