The amount of wealth, cant thank you all individually but consider a really grateful vibe coming your way for all the insights.
I am typing with the cotton gloves that I put on after slathering on A&D.
I love my dermatologists and md's but hardly any are functional doctors where I live and rather than looking at the main cause I usually get the advice: Stay away from clay... just apply this steroid..
I was diagnosed with Zinc deficiency and have run out of my supplement about a month ago.. phew.. reordering today. Same with fish oil and vitamin d I have been neglectful.
I have severe cracked heels as well what I have been told is that my psoriasis is coming out in a different way and all they gave are some lactic or uric acid to slough off the skin to stop buildup which in turn leads to cracks.
The biggest project I was commissioned with was making race medals for a regatta which encompassede 540 hand built medals.. it was painful to tell the least and I did use a different clay body along white eartenware - low fire.. and also used another different clay for a class I was taking - 900- the cone 10 one.
In addition to that like a stupid person when my hands were already semi irritated I proceeded by mixing the glaze bucket without gloves ( !@#$!! to myself) as the instructor was doing it that way I usually wear long gloves. Lesson learned.. guess I am sensitive and have to take extra care.
Will shop for those gloves from costco.
Thank you so much... I am in awe on all the responses I got to help me.. will pay back!
triagain - looking like minnie mouse with white gloves lol..
