I have been reading everyone's posts in the hope that something can help me with my PR, but feeling a little lost about it all at the minute
I first noticed a small patch on my bum cheek before Christmas, this one has totally healed now so not sure if that was actually my herald patch. I do now have 2 large 'main' ones, one on my chest (the worst one) and a larger one under my breast, this one doesn't really bother me and I never really noticed it. Ive read that it is possible to have more than one herald??
The doctor diagnosed me with PR nearly 4 weeks ago and told me to just let it be.
I left it for 2 weeks, getting more and more stressed about it so I came here.
1 week ago I bought some head and shoulders, aveeno moisturiser, anti histamines and vitamin C. I shower twice a day with the head and shoulders, then moisturise after. I don't really like sunbeds but im feeling so desperate right now I went on last night for 6 mins.
Today the main patch and other 2 next to it are very red, itchy and dry - is this a good sign??
My whole body isn't covered, I have a few small ones here and there, around 10 in total, then 5 larger ones on my torso and 1 on my neck.
Any advice is appreciated. I have felt very down the last few weeks so not sure if its because of this, or that has made it worse?
