Coping, diet

My expected flare after some stress has happened. My left foot and oddly, around my nose. Still on my anti inflammatory diet which I think has helped stop the flare being much worse.

Lemon ๐Ÿ‹ can make flare ups subside.

I have to agree with Clint! My lemon experiment showed that lemon works. After testing both elbows for more than a week (rubbing lemon on left and using aloe vera on right), the left elbow was significantly better. Iโ€™m now rubbing lemon on both!

This morning my scalp was itchy (so hard to get rid of p there) so I rubbed lemon on it and the itchiness subsided. Iโ€™m going to continue with the lemon twice a day on my scalp.

I love animals, traveling, my children and my grandchildren. My psoriasis is an inconvenience, it doesn't define me or stop me living my life how I want. Live, laugh, love :)
