...feeling afraid Gabriela @gabrielabee34


My face is the worst breakout. All over and around my eyes. Not only ugly, but so painful and raw. My skin feels like it's covered in burns. I am so overwhelmed. Can't bend my legs or arms. Thinking really dark thoughts today.

Hang in there darlin'... This too shall pass... I'm wondering if you did any of the diet/lifestyle changes that are recommended by so many people all over this site?

Cheryl @chez

As Susan said .. hang in there , try a cold cloth on the parts that are burning on your face. Also a cool bath or shower could help your legs. I was told too that when the outbreak was bad it is ok to have a pain killer eg paracetamol to ease the pain

Susan- I am slowly but surely cutting out sugars and dairy. Haven't been eating much of anything lately just feeling depressed. Quit smoking cold turkey three days ago. No alcohol, etc.

Thank you Cheryl, and thank you Susan. I am trying so hard to hang in there. Psoriasis in my ear canal has now caused me to have an infection in both ears and they are plugged! Can't hear at all. It's one thing after another and I feel like all I do is complain but I'm so so tired.

Gabriela... Just hang in there. One day at a time. Put some oil, coconut or whatever in your ear. Good for you for quitting smoking and starting a diet/ lifestyle change is tough for all of us. You can do this darlin'... Good idea Cheryl.

Hugs to you honey. I am using hemp seed oil and finding that is helping with the itchiness and redness. I hope you get some relief soon xx
