Just getting into the elder class and becoming comfy with my infirmities. My mother who died at age 95, used to say quite often “old age isn’t for sissies, ya gotta be strong to put up with it!” She was right!
Definitely Sarah. Mine was at its worst (massive flare - covered scalp to toe) back in 2011 and a month later I was completely clear for about a year. It's gradually crept back, but nowhere near as bad. I used to have massive plaques, which used to start small then grow and link up before they faded, but now they're much smaller and less flaky. I think it's changed from plaque to a different form and it seems to be fading again.
Sarah, I think your kids keep your body so busy it doesnt' have time to itch. Lol. I love kids.
Fran: You have to remember that you need to live a healthy lifestyle as well. You need to be cleansed from the inside. You need to have a healthy diet as well. The coal tar works excellent for my small term P like the one I had on my ear. I don't know how long I had the spot but it only itched last night. This morning it was gone and no itching. My Psoriasis took me a few months before it was gone. Less than 4 months because I used the tar and because of the elimination of certain food. I can see my P on my ankles are disappearing but only because I followed my fellow Flaymers advice on what other food to eliminate and now I'm using the Lemon as well. I hope it works for you like it does for me. Good luck and be patient with results. :)
This is very interesting news you guys. Thanx for sharing. I read that material that had been plants became coal and the whole history of where coal came from is also very fascinating. Today I've learned something great. I've been using coal tar for more than 20 years and it cured my P with about 80%. The remaining 3-5% is on my ankles which I'm struggeling with of course. Last night I had an itch on my ear. And when I checked I saw I had a flaky spot. I immediately rubbed some tar on and the spot is gone this morning. I will still rub tar on for a couple of days for prevention. I always thought that charcoal is the same as coal. Duh@myself.
I note a vague itch and when I touch it, it is like a pimple. When I scratch the top comes off and then there is a flat lesion. Sometimes it weeps, sometimes it dries and goes. I’m not sure, but I feel like it doesn’t come back to a spot where it has been and healed. Recently I have felt spaced out for a day or two before a flare of my inverse p.
