Secrets, coping, treatment
Arg my son had an ATV accident tonight. Broken hand which is very unfortunate as he is an athlete but worse is he has cuts all over his back. Besides keeping calm does anyone have advice to stop the areas from flaring up with P?

Sorry to hear about your son's accident psomom. His body might find it very stressful but he needs to stay calm and not stress about it as you mentioned and keep his diet healthy. The wrong food may trigger the flare. Unfortunately, with P we don't always know. If I had some cuts on my body which is not deep, I would've applied my coal tar mix to try prevent a flare up. I had luck in that field before but I made sure I keep it clean, eat healthy and try to forget about it. Our mind can be a little instigator sometimes :) good luck and I wish him a speedy recovery. :)

Thanks Michelle and John. Michelle is there a special coal tar mix you make? We haven’t used coal tar yet.

Hi pso. I buy it from my local chemist, they ad a specific percent extra to the bottle to make it a bit stronger then I mix it with my aqueous cream. I don't use the pure coal tar. :)

Oh no.. sorry to hear this! I hope his recovery can be quick! Hopefully his cuts can stay p free. Keeping well moisturized may help. Great to hear you are seeing a naturopath on wed. I would love to know what she says. Best of Luck!

Oh that’s great Sarah. Unfortunately he has gotten one before. But at the time we didn’t know what it was (6 months ago-it’s still there). For now I am covering the wounds with pure Aloe. His back arms and legs badly wounded. I am also using POSITIVE VIBRATIONS and LOVE.
