I just read about the first 10 comments, but It seems that my past experience of PR was quite severe in comparison. Unless I was diagnosed wrong? .. when I was 17 I developed my first PR and it came with the herald and then spread rapidly over my whole body. I was about 90% covered and it was very sore and very uncomfortable. However coupled with the rash I had extreme fatigue and could not stay away more than 3 hours a day. This lasted for a few months then my energy slowly came back and eventually the rash began to fade. This changed my whole lifestyle.
All I could do for treatment was slap wet aloe vera gel all over and let that just soak in, taking in the relief of those itchy free moments. That and luke warm baths and absolutely no chemicals.
All these years (now 13 years later) I have had reoccurring patches on my hands and lower arms coming up and going down regularly.
So I am here today, because to my dismay I had another herald patch. On my abdomen and it stayed for a good 2 months. Nothing happened. Just the last month I got a really bad cold/flu/virus thing that knocked me for 6 and during my recovery of that I have noticed other small patches appearing. Strangely my herald patch faded over this time and has seemed to have relocated down in my pelvic area, or at least that is the most prominent patch at the moment.
My lymph nodes are swollen and unfortunately I just had a wisdom tooth ulcer.. so antibiotics have been clearing that up. Now I check myself again and I have small red pimples all over my legs and more small PR like clusters on my torso and my chest looks all specked and red. I cant tell if it is the ulcer and fever I just had that is causing my lack of energy or if it is the PR again. Fingers crossed no. I will wish that away.
I don't see any information about the fatigue effects, which I would like to know more about as it impacted my life so greatly. Did I have PR before and is this it again?
Also it is rare to have PR reoccurring 2% chance in fact.
I will definitely go to the doctors this week and hope to calm it with aloe, coconut oil and salt baths.
Thanks for this forum and I am grateful to share this today.
