Woman, 24, who can’t wear UNDERWEAR due to her skin issues

Jessica Sorensen has suffered from severe skin conditions since she was born and is unable to wear underwear as her skin is so delicate.

The 24-year-old from Queensland has multiple autoimmune diseases, including eczema, psoriasis fibromyalgia and Ankylosing Spondylitis, which limits her lifestyle and ability to work full-time.

‘I’ve had it since I was a baby and when I was born my mum says my skin stayed purple and blue for three to four days, which is characteristic of eczema and psoriasis,’ Jessica told FEMAIL. 

Jessica attempted to ease the irritating side effects with a wide range of products, though nothing seemed to work.

‘I’ve tried everything – bleach baths, UVB light treatment, so many different creams and ointments like Epaderm, Dermeze, emulsifying ointments – and my skin just sucks it up,’ she said.

But she now manages to keep her skin issues under control after discovering MooGoo’s $18.50 Eczema and Psoriasis Cream, which is sold over the counter at chemists.

‘This has been my life for as long as I can remember and I’m constantly adjusting. I’ve already got enough on my plate with the pain, discomfort and itching, being ostracised on top of it is another burden,’ Jessica said.

‘I can’t be out in the heat as I get sweaty and start itching – I may as well live in a bubble!’ 

She described the condition as ‘painful, depressing and debilitating’ and was bullied in school for looking ‘disgusting’, which had a negative impact on her mental health.

‘I can’t wear bras as they cut into my skin under my breast, and I can’t wear pants either as they cut into my inner thighs,’ she said.

When the psoriasis flares it also attacks Jessica’s nails, causing them to weaken and often fall off entirely.

To help prevent this from occurring, she wears fake nails to protect the nail beds as much as possible.

After using MooGoo’s natural products, Jessica instantly noticed changes in her skin and said it works brilliantly.

‘I can usually tell within minutes when you put it in your skin whether it’s going to work or not, so I started with a test spot,’ she said.

‘I started with the Eczema and Psoriasis Cream on my hands and feet and it soothed my skin straight away and took away the redness and the itch – then I used it all over my face and body.

‘The change in my skin is amazing; I’m less blotchy, itchy and my skin is less irritated and starting to heal.’ 

In addition to using MooGoo’s beneficial products, Jessica also recommends ensuring the house is cool at all times in order to keep the skin calm and minimise irritation. 

She also keeps her spirits up and manages her anxiety by having chickens as pets.

Skin conditions like psoriasis are on the rise in Australia and millions are now like the millions are now mentally driven to the edge with the painful red, scaly, itchy and raw skin disorder causing anxiety and distress.

A recent study shows 73 per cent of Aussies with psoriasis reported hiding their condition because of embarrassment and fear of stigma. 

One of its eczema and psoriasis creams are sold every two minutes and MooGoo CEO Melody Livingstone says the business has seen a dramatic rise in the number of people suffering skin issues, especially over the last few months as a reaction to COVID lockdowns, stress and over-washing of hands.
