Secrets, coping, treatment
How long do you try a topical treatment and/or shampoo before you decide if its working or not....I hear sometimes things get worse in the healing process.

That's a difficult one Psomum. Because treatments affect us differently. I can only go on what my pharmacist always tells me not to use any topical for longer than 3 to 4 weeks.
And only use a medicated shampoo twice a week.
Others may have different advice.

I usually get a negative reaction quick. Half an hour to an hour most.

Thank you both. Michelle what kind of reaction do you get?

I start itching within that time and then I know, bad food. If its really bad i get inflammation, about 24 hours after food intake.

Thanks Rosey. We have 4 weeks before the derm, so I am researching our prescription options we can get our family dr to write in the meantime.

Psomom I am a lucky one I guess. I have many autoimmune dis-eases so really within 24 hours I knew. Mostly because of pain issues. I got healed with diet, lifestyle and maybe the most important that was longer term was mind change and not allowing all the life experiences to be stressful. I had lots. Just took time.

I hear you Susan. I’ve been listening to lots of meditations on YouTube. Definitely helpful managing stress and emotions. I’m trying to get my son on it. He is resisting but I think with time and patience it will happen. I’m convinced stress is a big part of this and he can be a pretty stressed person. Having P is really going to push him to learn to manage his stress
