I am known by 8 different nicknames, depending on who is talking, That confuses other people, so I tell them “ Call me anything, as long as it is to lunch on time.”
The soap with coal tar helped my feet and hands
I'm new to the game at age 83. Showed up in April but clear by end of July... I did twice daily soaks with vinegar, water and sea salt, which helped with itching too. I drink a lot of lemonade and take turmeric capsules twice a day... hoping all will keep recurrence at bay.
Started out with vinegar/sea salt 30 minute soaks twice a day, with a hydrocortisone cream applied at night, covered with socks. Later used black African soap to hands and B.A. scrub to feet and the cream. Regular diet of LOTS of fluids like tea and lemonade to drink and usual organic foods.
I am fortunate that it was caused by a change in thyroid medication not stress in my life... hehe until this came along. At age 83, I feel blessed.
I was diagnosed with P on my feet and hands a couple of months ago. Appeared suddenly one night! A few days later I showed my hands to my 60 yr. old son, (I live with his family now.). His comment was;
“Oh! My hands do that once in a while”. Since I lived in another part of the state, I was not aware of it, and he didn’t think it was anything to go the Dr. about! Apparently he is one lucky guy, as sometimes it is a couple of years until it appears and is over in a few weeks.
