So no way going forward to another drug, this one made me sick 4 days out if 7,but cleared me, I don't get it, yep undue stress but not my stress but guess I take it on board, I know no cure but thought yayyy no p anymore but it lies to u, awaiting for it to rear again, in not talking one spot, I know its demise lol, so pissed off its not funny

I'm sorry to hear Rosey. Some of the drugs aren't good for us and the thing is we will try everything just to get rid of the P. It's not that easy and as soon as we see it's returning, the more we stress and the more we stress, the more P we get. We can't win but all we can do is try. I'm still using my tar cream. As you know, i've been using it for many many years, and apart from strong steroids (which I haven't used in centuries) the tar has done a great job for me. It's still helping the P not getting out of hand and I still try to not focus on my P the whole time. My ankles are looking good but it's getting winter now so I expect a few extra spots. I'll be called "spotty"when I walk down the isle lol. Poor John ;)
I do hope your arms gets better. I got 3 spots from when I returned from Dublin. Normally they go quick but they are still there. Not getting bigger or anything. Just sitting there...waiting...don't know for what, but I know that I have been eating crap a lot so my body is recovering now. I'm drinking my turmeric as well and my joint pain has been gone for 2 weeks, so I'm happy.
Hang in there Rosey, just don't panic about the P, get something for the itch and flakes and you'll be okay.
Have you noticed that when you don't itch and not flaking, the P gets better? to me it means that my body doesn't have that much inflammation in it which is why I drink my turmeric and eat my anti inflammatory foods. But again, we are not all the same.
Keep well Rosey and keep us posted about your P. Tell us when you try something new. :)

Every time I try a new drug or remedy my p gets better for a week or two so I feel relieved but suddenly it pops up again and I get depressed😔I'm trying now just to keep it under control with steroids and avoid the spreading.. I known it's a tuff battle ✌️

Try not to go nuts on steroids Lillianm, Can make it worse after, I do a little now and again but not too much,, can get to the point where they wont work and make it worse, Have a break from it from time to time, we know steriods are not good but i get you

I had a reaction to eating lobster the other day. Woke up in the middle of the arm with my skin all itchy, still have some spots on my arms too Rosey but they're slowly going away. I did use that magic Chinese cream (which supposedly has steroids in it although they claim it doesn't) and my aloe vera cream. So I guess no more lobsters for me!

Yes i know which one you are talking about Rita, Its a miracle but a very high amount of steroids, Its trying to have a balnce of not depending n them, but use now and again its not too bad , Yes they say its all herbal lol noooo, Yes i guess the lobster is sure of my menu thugh i dont eat anyway, I like seafood that looks like a fish :)

I know it totally has steroids in its ingredients. It’s too bad because it works so well but like you I use it sparingly and only when necessary. Not eating lobster will be cheaper! It comes from Canada where I live but still very expensive.
