Itch, treatment, healthcare system

Hi my flaymers. Update on my P. After getting strep throat and got a huge flare from it, I recovered from strep but now, I'm now diagnosed with bronchitis. P is not inflamed but I'm spotty.

Haven't been this covered in many years it is a bit disappointing but I'm keeping immune system up so I don't get sick again. Look after yourselves and stay positive. Our health is precious to us and we need not take it for granted.

So sorry to hear that Michelle. I've been down with severe sinusitis and a cough so my ears have started up again after being clear for months. Back to moisturising them again. Get better soon my friend

Bummer Michelle hope you feel better soon!
I suppose anything that depresses the immune system might cause flare ups, not sure as I am new to this.

Aww Bev, I'm so sorry to hear about your sinusitis. You've been doing so well but hey, not everything stays forever ;) Good luck Bev and I hope your ears will clear up soon and the sinusitis will be gone xx
True John, we really do take our health for granted and should eat healthy and cheat sometimes not always. Oh the spots will be okay, I'm more worried about the chest inflammation but I'll be fine. Thanx hun xxx
Hey Linda, yes that's why we should always boost our immune system and make sure it stays strong. A strong immune system gives us a lot to work with especially with P. :)

Sorry so many sick with colds, bronchitis etc, must admit did not even catch a sniffle this winter, touch wood. Get well soon Michelle and Bev

Thanks Rosey. You're a lucky girl. I also don't get sick during winter, maybe a cold that's it but then I got strep throat and from there all just went grey for me. Hope you're keeping well?

Doing fine atm, Dermy concerned about psa/oa in feet, it suxs as that's where it is, am sure there are solutions, if not the sun always shines and am in a much better place than I was 10 weeks ago. Our winter just finished, now its spring, hence why I said no cold this winter. I swear by a cut onion in room when ppl have colds etc, my adult children think I'm a witch but oh well haha

Aye Michelle it itches like crazy ...and scratching brings such relief & trauma to the scalp … I actually enjoy looking for the thick pieces of scalp to pick away.. but that comes with a price as I pull my hair out at the same time...and because I know its there , even if not itchy , my hand automatically goes to my head to start scratching & looking for scabs to pick … & that's when I end up with snowflakes all on my clothes...….no win situation … I think I have to wear mitts...……. hahaaaaa


Michelle

hhahaha oh Ellen, sounds like me. I have a few spots on scalp now but like you said, it doesn't itch but your hand automatically goes to the head and then you start picking. Not good for me as I don't have much hair. Oh the itch. Sometimes I just love it. I can't stop scratching especially in a hot bath. Damn, its nice. lol. Oh Ellen, what can we do apart from finding this funny although its not but it doesn't help to complain right? Just have to try make it better. My P is actually fading now again. The strep throat gave me a flare but now its going again. I'm relieved though. Turmeric is helping. The joys of P :)
