thanks for the photos

Eumovate is clobestasol, higest potency steroid cream for skin psoriasis.

Epaderm is an ointment 3-in-1 Emollient, Bath additive and Skin Cleaner used for eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions

from the photos, it looks like you have psoriasis

there are systemic IV treatments for psoriasis such as methotrexate, Enbrel, REmicade, Stelara which are expensive, but could help control your skin breakouts and help your skin symptoms.

you should talk to your doctor about these options when the strongest steroid creams are not able to control your skin psoriasis

let me know if you have other questions.
