I spent several years applying thick layers of, essentially, paraffin to my skin. I bathed in paraffin soaked baths, washed with paraffin. I also wore all cotton clothes ( this is another ongoing problem that people don’t usually think about, but I can moan about that in another thread ;p ) and brought cotton sheets and blankets with me to prevent having to make contact with man made fibres.

After about 4-5 years of this it started to improve enough that I can manage in less conspicuous way. Have found that I can use Cetraben (https://www.boots.com/cetraben-cream-475ml-10191699) at home and Aveeno (https://www.boots.com/beauty/skincare/skincare-all-skincare/aveeno-lotion-with-natural-colloidal-oatmeal-500ml-10145087) in public.

Both used to be available on prescription. But, not so much any more.
