All went very well. And I must report that the prescribed mixture of Cerave and the other ingredient (which I can't remember) and the pill in the evenings (since it makes you sleepy anyway) has worked extremely well. I have NEVER had such extensive results so quickly from any medicine in my life. The ointment moisturizes the skin and eliminates the flaking and itching and thus I don't constant scratch (or try not to), and thus I feel enormously better. It's been a great week. My wife noted the improvement as quickly as I did.
