A woman has praised a £3.99 high street moisturiser that she says ‘cured’ her painful psoriasis in just 24 hours.
Laura Gray said she suffered with the skin condition for years and that only harsh over-the-counter lotions like hydrocortisone would help ease the pain.
However, after her mother told her to try a budget moisturiser from a brand called Child’s Farm, she found that the rash had cleared from her arms, neck and chest within a day.
Following the discovery, Gray posted on Facebook to recommend the cream to those who suffer from similar skin conditions. It has since received more than 40,000 shares and 12,000 reactions.
“Needed to share this with you all. I suffer from psoriasis, have done for years, I get it all up my arms, neck and chest and up until yesterday only hydrocortisone cream would get rid of it, but it’s really harsh and only pharmacists can give you it,” she wrote.
“Yesterday my Mam told me try this baby moisturiser, I’m not joking 24 hours later my psoriasis is gone! Anyone suffering with psoriasis or eczema you need to try this!”
But this isn’t the first time the “miracle” cream has made headlines for its ability to clear up stubborn skin conditions.
Last month, Joanne Nevin, a 28-year-old mother of three from Ballynahinch, Northern Ireland, said that the cream soothed the skin of her six-month-old daughter Kelisha.
Having developed patches of eczema on her elbows and legs, the youngster was left in immense pain and discomfort and was even prescribed steroids and emollients to help.
However, after poor results Nevin decided to try Child’s Farm and within four weeks said that Kelisha was “like a different baby.”
Similarly, last year mother Paige Sweeney praised the cream for clearing up her daughter’s painful eczema.
Sweeney took Evie-Rose to dermatologists for more than two years in a bid to try and find a cure for her skin condition but as a last resort tried the cream after spotting at a local Boots store.
To her surprise, baby Evie’s eczema had cleared up within a week and she immediately called for it to become available on the NHS.
Childs Farm is made by a small British company and was founded by Joanna Jensen in 2010 after struggling to find products for her own daughter's fine hair and sensitive skin
