I had a flakey nose this morning and a red spot right at the top of my nose so hoping it won't come to much

Wonderful news Michelle! Hope your happy skin continues. I’ve had a mini flare up on the back of my uppe legs. Very annoying. I shouldn’t complain because many of us Flaymers are worse off. Nevertheless wouldn’t it be nice to have normal skin?!
I’m doing a test. The left side of my body I’m doing the Clint remedy (rubbing lemon on my skin); on the right side I’m applying my aloe Vera based cream. No other changes, we’ll see what happens.

Well I have 3 new spots that arrived on my one bum cheek ...I felt the itch then the hot sensation..now I feel pain..this is so odd as I never experienced pain with my new spots..& its so itchy but I cant touch it.. I have just been applying my [...] & hopefully it will get better...its a bit of a hassle to sit ......

Thank you. I never do a body check as I almost never itch but its a good thing I did. John being dotty is the new fashion. Lol.
Mavis I hope so too, as one start stressing when getting it in the face. I have this one dry flake on my nose, not sure if its P but i just slap the tar mixture on. Looks like im a tar addict. Just keep on treating it ;)
Wow Rita, that's wonderful what you're trying. I never thought of trying that on my legs. Please let us know side heals quicker. Good luck!
Ellen, the only time I experience pain is when I have terrible inflammation. Remember that lamb stew I had a couple of months ago? Oh boy, my P were so sore, I couldn't even touch it and the itch was unbearable. I'm sorry about your new spots and I hope the pain goes away. Rub a disprin on it lol. Sorry for laughing but someone said that they rub disprins in their P and it helped. I wish you all well xxx

HAHA michelle, i think you can join the dots up on me at the moment lol,may look like some sort of star charts lay out ,joining the dots to make pictures like star signs or something :)I am rather dotty :),Sure its a dried flake on your nose and not a dry whatsit from out of your nose?I would rather that than a flake :)
27 Sep 18:05
Yes i have had this happen years ago thinking i had a flake on the end of my nose and found out it wasnt and picked it off, oooh so painful but was glad it wasnt a flake though :)

Fresh air on your thighs ?
Are you streaking? LOL 😁
Glad your better 😊

I think Im going to rub some lemon on my bum cheek...
28 Sep 13:10
Good luck Ellen. Let us know how you get on
28 Sep 14:31
John I'm not sure about the flake. Sometimes its there but I don't stress about it now. Oh my legs are very dotty so I'll join the club :)
Lol Clint, sometimes streaking is good for our P as long as there are no peeping Toms. I have my eggs ready in case I see one.
Try that Ellen and let us know how it works for you. Good luck. :)

Well,,fall is here and winter is around the corner,,Im starting to ich again now--my hands and part of my arms--not sure what to try next to take the ich out---I love our summers but its almost over and am feeling it. Any suggestions?
29 Sep 07:27
That is great Michelle.
Hi Lorna, the same here. I was doing good. Now I am wondering what to do next. Itchy, scratchy and hurt. I know it will get even worse. I know what autunm and winter can do. Anybody have suggestions to prep for winter?

I would say try keeping your immune system strong so you don't get sick. Moisturize often but not too much. Your P still needs to breath. Avoid inflammatory food and whenever possible, get some rays. Its easy for me to say get some rays as your winters are different from ours but I do hope you can get some. :)

Thank-you flaymers..it rained all night here and its still raining and its the first rain we had all summer. Very dry here but this is Victoria and its like tht here but we usually have some rain during the summer--so its hard to get more sun now.

Right , I had a very lemony weekend...rubbed it on my bum cheek... I now have scabs, no itch or inflammation or pain...so im just applying some coconut oil to keep it moist ...will look in the mirror later to see the damage .....

Good luck Lorna!
Ellen, good luck to you too and keep us posted. ;)
