My girlfriend contracted PR a couple of weeks ago, after finding the herald patch on her shoulder the rash developed over a few days and rapidly spread across her front, back and her botttom by Friday 13th (the date was somewhat unfortunate). She went to the doctor the following Monday and after being diagnosed with PR we did the research and stumbled across this site.
Its Friday today and I have to say that after just 4 days of washing in Head and Shoulders twice a day and going on sunbeds for 3 of those days I am very encouraged with the results so far. There has been a noticable reduction in the severity of the rash in both colour and size.
I must add that she has moisturised a lot over the last few days (around 3-4 times a day) using a few different products; Banana Boat Aloe Vera gel (after going on the sunbeds), a thick application of Nivea after her first shower and then an application of Boots coconut oil after her evening shower.
Before I give too much encouragement I must add that the rash did not seem to have the severity that some people seem to have suffered and she did not experience the itching that has been such an unfortunate side-effect for so many people.
Bringing things back round to the positives however, I must say despite the aggressive approach to moisturising that she has taken I believe that the biggest rewards have certainly come from the use of Head & Shoulders and sunbeds. Given the speed that we have seen results I would encourage others that are suffering from PR to at least give this approach a go. Even if the results aren't as dramatic as others have experienced it is important for you all to not let the situation get on top of you, be as proactive as you can and above all be positive.
