From what I have read Aqua Phor is petroleum based. I personally would not use it or recommend it. DH is a mysterious beast and pretty much anything foreign (un-natural) as petroleum I avoid. Let us know how your appointment goes on Tuesday.

What does your rash look like?

Raz - did your doctor take a biopsy? Your descriptions sound so much like mine but I can't even get a doctor to consider DH. They are so sure this isn't my problem.

Wow .. wow .. wow.. this is a much different story than any other people post on here... at least in my time on here.

Please be sure to (if you are willing of course) post the derms name and clinic. There will be others that may be able to access him. I checked with the forum moderators a few months ago and we are allowed to share names of docs etc ((don't do email/phone numbers etc on the public forum)). In general you should probably avoid bagging the bads ones. But the goods ones need to be shared loudly and widely. Please.

Lucky you razzle :) You should put up a new DH post and let people know the doc's name and location. ((I checked with moderators and there is no problem with doing so))
