Looks, treatment, healthcare system
Good morning my lovely Flaymers. I hope you are all well? As some of you know, P sufferers in the biblical times used urine as treatment for their P. I have read that some people now, apply their saliva on their P. What are your thoughts about it?

Hi Michelle, have not tried either, might try saliva.
31 Jan 09:14
Me too! lol
31 Jan 09:33
Yes i have heard of this Michelle with urine, hmmmm ,not a good idea, i have used saliva on my face to moisturise the flakes,it work for a little while,only done that in desperate flakey circumstances, :)
31 Jan 09:39
Maybe theres going to be a lot of people spitting on themselves now Michelle, unless they got a partner to spit on them :)

In India, people normally use cow urine for several diseases, they also drink cow urine. I heard from an Indian friend, it is a good remedy for most of the chronic diseases.

Well could get worse if people go urinating over their partners psoriasis, nooooo thank you :)

Md, I have read that too sometime ago. I'm not sure I will be able to do that but hey, I've never had a health risk to try it.
lol John. But we all know that our body heals itself right? We just need to find out what we can use from our body to heal our condition. As long as we don't have to cut off a limb. I know that earwax works wonderful for cold sores on your lips. I've tried it and it really does work. 😐. Yeah okay, I need help :)
31 Jan 11:55
Yes of course,yes our bodies do heal themselves,just hope mine heals quicker at moment, my toxin portal patch is breaking up a little in places, hope this continues as this is annoying :)Ear wax on your lips, well if it works and dosnt cost you a penny then good for you Michelle,There you go all, a money saving tip for cold sores :)

Bush people use urine to heal all sorts of cuts and abrasions. So why not?
31 Jan 12:26
Thats great Jen, Not heard of this until now :) I get P in certain places it dosnt help my P at all, Makes it sore :)
31 Jan 12:32
Yes true Jen. We have a tribe in South Africa called the Khoi-San and they are the best in advising what to use for all sorts of illnesses. If I had a chance to meet one of them, I would've asked them what can be used for P. They live to get very old and healthy. Wonderful people. One with nature.

I think I will stick to moisturizers and creams.
Question- why do I hear people not using the steroid creams that most doctors recommend?
31 Jan 16:53
They can cause nasty problems, I read an article that it can cause sepsis , if spelt correctly? if one gives them up and obviously, theres the flare one can get that can last for months, Doctors do not want to tell you the down full with steroids as it treats the symptoms and as you know ,we never cant get rid of it for good , Doctors know this maybe the only thing but,you got keep going with them to get better skin, thanks Linda, :)

I bumped the arm I am using the cream on and it ripped the skin in two places so I wondered if the cream was thinning the skin on that arm?
01 Feb 01:24
I think it does do that Linda
01 Feb 02:18
I am thinking wow that is on the lower arm Iwas treating the upper. Pretty scary. Is it mostly moisturizing that helps, thinkI will do lemons too.
01 Feb 05:15
Yes it does Linda. I have used steroid cream many years ago for a couple of months and my skin got very thin and my P actually got worse when I stopped using it. I do have P on my ankles and I'm going to try a different steroid for a week to see if it improves. I only want to try it for a week, then I'll go back to my normal mixture and try manage it from there.
01 Feb 06:32
Good luck Michelle I hope it will work on you ankles
01 Feb 06:49
Thank you Bev. I hope so too. :)
01 Feb 07:34
Yes it does Linda, sure does thin the skin, Sorry about this

Good morning Michelle. I think urine is good for many things. I remember my mom telling me that on the farm they put cow urine on their hair, washed it, and then their hair was super shiny. As far as saliva goes, I was thinking about my kids. It's an automatic reaction almost to lick your finger when you get hurt. In fact I have a memory of my son get a scratch and he said "Mommy put lick on it"... OMGoodness. He was so cute. My grandmother used to say to wipe and wipe urine on my temples when I had a headache. Can't remember if I did but heck, why not? God has all kinds of great remedies out there that we can tap into. Happy urinating!! LOL

Michelle about the ear wax. Never heard of that but why not try it? I did have a doctor tell me, when I had really bad chapped lips, to run my fingers on the side of my nose to get the oil off. Then wipe it on my lips. It worked!!
