Looks, coping, treatment

Recent flare up getting worse... Off to the GP I go later this week! Hoping to find some options that I can add in to my daily routine to stop my guttate turning into plaque... I knew that prolonged sore throat would not be my friend!

Mine just keeps on getting worse. Ankles to neck now I'm covered. It alternates between the itch version of whack-a-mole, with the itching being really vicious and persistant, to a red raw burning, and occasional bouts of nothing. I see the dermatologist on the 17th then hopefully begin the UVB treatment. I'm not forgetting someone saying they'd had major problems steming from it but I'm getting desperate now. My GP gave me an emollient shower gel (sorry, site rules, I can't name it), which, along with a good spraying of Vaseline aerosol moisturiser, at least let's me get some sleep.

I have noticed something unusual, I have very little plaque, either on long standing plaque areas, or plaque caps on the guttae. They are however, still red, raised and either burning or aggressively itchy.

James imagine flakes falling off all the time on wooden floors,man was so trying to get em where ever I walked,,have no M lemons atm and yep when I use them no flakes,clint lemons not a solution but going to use them again,as fighting a losing battle with flakes,coconut oil Aline don't do it as flake on that but the combo of lemon then oil gets me through,yesterday was real bad in flakes falling,lucky client went to bed in my duration there,so she didn't see the snow storm,lemon controls flakes and I didn't use them that day,thanjs Clint ,it's the only thing that does

Sorry Sarah, could be because of winter yes. Its snowing in SA, Durban and Capetown, and being in Gauteng we get the cold so Im flakey now. I got new spots from winter but some went away and others, well, they are stubborn. Hope yours get better soon :)

Lemon 🍋 will work it takes time for your body to expel toxins it may look like it enlarged that's what mine did but then it went away it wasn't easy or quick but in the end lemon 🍋 and air did it I avoided creams for the most part .

Michelle

Lisa. Love the pic! I agree with Clint, lemon takes time, so try it for a couple of weeks and see what happens. Not all of us are the same but trying cost nothing :) Rosey, garlic is terrific for my P and it keeps the mosquito's away :)


Rosey
Rosey @sue2023
