Pharmacist was taken aback, as showed her my side skin, am guessing they don't see severe stuff lol, but I don't cry much but tonight I did as her reaction, I'm used to it but I do forget how bad it must look to others, oh well its only the, second professional that had no idea and was shocked lol, it's not that bad to me, as lived a long time with it. I just wanted to stop the itch and not to tell my story to her, they never understand anyway, was good to cry though.

What I got from her otc is great though antihistamine and an itch cream for scabies but for stings etc

My answer to so called specialists Rosey is they are or most of them a joke and your pharmasist should show compassion and not shock by what she sees,Not professional making you feel uncomfortable and upset , Bitch i say she is sorry to say that , I had that reaction from someone and i stayed calm but i was hurt inside but had to think, what something bad happens to them ?if its to the face skin what ever , their life would change but they would understand what its like for those misfortunate People and got understand no one can help going through this shit and you want help, I am disgusted by this. mothers. I hope the antihistamines help you Rosey and just think those that show no compassion but look as though you got something contagious are shallow especially those in pharmacies that should give sound advice and show professionalism to you as that what they get paid for and not make people feel uncomfortable as that hurts, i am with you on that been there worn the flakes,

Yes it hurt alot, after initial reaction she tried but I was not there to say anything but help me to ease this situation for now, not to listen to oh you need specialists etc, which I've been too last 5 years, I just wanted a simple antidote till I get to Dr's lol.
I rarely get upset but geeze her reaction was only second time been bad.
But not itching anymore so was worth it? ". It was, also her words that's said you will not abuse these tabs? Huh OK I was tired, Not suicide at all and no idea if maybe it's, what druggies get to make drugs, I don't care But that what it seemed, I just asked for relief
When I get to Dr I will say how I was treated, ta John for listening it's no major, I just was in pain and needed relief
26 Jun 19:23
Pst, no I don't have scabies but the cream I got was for an anti itch, it's good. I'd roll in manure, atm if someone said it will stop the psa and psrioasis lolol, it's all good, but professionals need to listen and just give me stuff without the drama of having to look and the shock and then the other stuff, the Dr's, ar mre for that, all I wanted was, something for the itch, simple lolol

Its okay , Just hope your Doc is good because all mine i see are useless, I never needed them for years and now i needed them and i got lied to, serious yes lied to, i found this one Doc out, One doc the one who sent me for the hurnia medieval torture 2 and a half years ago did give me an examination and confirmed like i dont already know that i have inflammation which he found in my lymph nodes, Docs can make you look like you are crazy, I said i was healthy before this operation , no inflammation of arthritis, no uveitis, no fatigue, no weakness and joint discomfort and now all that crap but i have taken some control on it,Doctors Doh , dumb asses in my opinion , So as i always said for years that docs no nothing, i have to tell them stuff as they dont know, and comfirmed i has swollen lymph nodes like i dont know i got inflammation lol, Just hope your Doc isgood because i will change mine in the future assuming i am still alive lol, Glad you got no itch, Yes i have heard these do help, Strange thing is my skin is getting so much better but, i am taking ashwanda pills, probiotics, B12, more magnesum pills, turmeric pills and adding turmeric to my food with garlic and ginger and onions thrown in, could be helping my situation mainly skin, worth a shot you know Rosey ,I take biberry pills also for my eyes daily ,Yes i knw what you mean when you want relief Rosey, i am waiting for that too for my immune response
26 Jun 19:56
My skin been bad over 5 years, as you know, and no Dr, drug has helped much, so no more, but two will get relief when needed, am with you when you say we, are more I formed at times, we are still alive, mydr useless but now knows to listen but he, will give me anything I need in a gp but hell the deck do I know what I need? "
Pharmacist was, easier atm no waiting, no appointments lol but yeah I forget I'm severe as so used to Mt skin I forget that others may not have seen it this bad before I'm not that bad to me.
Hope your doing OK, well as best as you can, your eyes are, a prob by the sounds, scarry stuff hey.
I do hope hope your getting the care you need there, here it's a, waiting game and a money thing so I'm just not going to bother with wasting money on specialists, skin or rhuemologist, out if money and they did nothing, I place my bets o pharmacist that upset me but cheaper lol.
Hope Michelle is there for you in person soon, and thank you for sharing my grief, we are all in this together and here for us all.
Thank you ♥️

psoriasis is all trial and error with docs Rosey , If you are not getting anywhere then dont bother with them i say , I dont see them for psoriasis as you know, not done for years but now got to deal with them because of what they done to me ,Bad psoriasis is hard i know and i am lucky that i havnt had it bad for 30 odd years , Hope you will be okay ?
27 Jun 02:17
I get Hay fever too but not as bad as years ago Rosey, Wonder if its part of the auto immune response with us psoritics ?I developed that in 1982 and suffered bad then for years , over the years it calmed down but its hard with it i know when its bad , sorry
27 Jun 18:05
Well I got a great sleep that's all I needed and these tablets work as I know when they wear off as the intense itch starts over. Will see my Dr eventually but definitely not paying a cent more for specialists, As no better after alot of treatments, not their fault that I'm a tough case.
That mesh has to come out John!!! No idea why anyone with autoimmune condition would have foreign materials in the body. Well we do it to fix a problem not realising that our bodies hyjack that decision.
Yes I lasted a month with a coil inside argh absolutely agony,.
Found a natural product for Psa pain on feet, pain away, works enough for me to walk a bit more than I used too.
27 Jun 21:55
I didnt know as this is what all them do, shove mesh in , I declared i had auto immunedisease and i should had been turned away, neglegigence this is , I am making a complaint to NHS uk against the surgeon too, There are many who have mesh and have auto immune diseases believe me because this is standard practice now for 30 years , Someone told me here they have too had mesh too , its russian roulette and its a matter of time before it happens then your screwed,live with auto immune response which is really bad with mesh or get it taken out with more risks even death though it wont matter if you are asleep anyway as you wont notice until you hover over the surgeon killing you . Glad you slept well Rosey :) glad you are better Rosey :) Thanks
