I was not using vaseline at the time of these photos (about a month ago) but recently a derm told me to use vaseline so I started. I am going to stop tarting tomorrow though, I was prescribed a topical cortisone. I have tried other cortisones for about a month and they did not help, so I'm not very confident this will help. The derms just don't udnerstand our problem. I really think this problem has to do with our digestion and cleansing will help clear and heal things.
