PPP

I have PPP on my hands and feet. It started out of the blue in my early 60's . It is much improved now with constant moisturising as the soles of feet which \i used to call elephant hide is now soft but I still have to keep it moisturised or is will start flaking again. I have taken Vit D3 / Vit K2 ...

Re: uncomfortable psoriasis

Are you sure it is psoriasis and not eczema or a sweat rash?

You may get some help from a product I trialled from this website which was Cuticura mildly medicated talcum powder which is very soothing.

Re: Psoriasis on nails? Fingers & toes!

I would like to know the same thing. I have tried everything for this problem from Vick, Listerine, tea tree, oreganooil to ACV all for months at a time. The latest I have tried in desperation is private, hot laser treatment.which cost a fortune. I had 12 sessions. Yes the colour is better, all dark...

Re: Bleeding and variable stools

I have to admit that I rarely go near a doctor. It would have to be for something very urgent and important if I did. I am a natural health practitioner myself and avoid drug medication like the plague unless it would be vital to my health. e.g. I have Type 2 diabetes which I have controlled on a lo...

Re: Strange Vaginal Discharge

Thank you Jonathan for the reassurance that at 68 - 15 years after cessation on my menses that it is OK to get the occasional blood stained discharge - it never is more than that. My last ultra sound was probably 6 months ago so I won't be bothering my GP for another referral just yet. Am not sure a...

Strange vaginal discharge and other things

Since menopause , 15 years ago (age 53) about once a year I will get a vaginal discharge which looks blood stained. In fact I had the last one a few days ago and it was accompanied by mild period cramps. I have had quite a few trans vaginal scans since then and the odd colposcopy but nothing is ever...
