Hi Gail, Have you ever tried Extra strength TGel? I have had really great success keeping my scalp clear with it. I have tried the regular before and it helped okay..but noting compared to the extra strength. Clears my scalp quite quickly after a flare.
Debra, I am so sorry to hear of the shitty people you have encountered. The nerve of a person telling children to keep away from you is infuriating! I hope you can find some relief soon and feel as though you can take your life back. I have had times when I was so bad I wanted to just keep myself hidden away..but then we miss out on so much of life. Louise Hay has helped me immensely, changing the way I look at myself and my skin and allowing Love into my life..from myself especially. She has loads of youtube content. I would recommend starting with *you can heal your life, if you are interested. I like to fall asleep listening to her, or relaxing during the day and letting her words flow. Welcome to Flaym everyone :)
SO! I recently discovered Rosemary essential oil is very amazing for controlling itch! It does leave skin dry but I've now added jojoba oil which is very close to skin sebum. I've tried other oils but Jojoba does not leave serious gunk in my hair. Rosemary can also help revive and stimulate hair follicles to grow hair! So I'll be monitoring that in my blank spots! But it offers a ton of itch relief!
Wow, your reactions are almost totally opposite mine! Hot baths really help stop the itch for a while, using a pool is almost guaranteed to bring on a flair, heat bothers me more than cold, although the heat is generated in the affected areas no matter what time of year & AC helps me I think!! There are so many different reactions in our environment for instance some people claim that UV is good for them, whereas it just dries me out & makes my P crack. That's why this site is so good. I take in everything & try those things that I've never tried before.
Hi Abdul. I will have to take the biologic every two weeks in order to stay clear, or mostly clear. (so, indefinitely) No side effects that I've noticed (at the 9 weeks mark) I used another biologic for 9 years and never had any major side effects, either. Just some wonky blood work towards the end of those 9 years, and there were other health problems going on for me at the time.
