I have moderate-severe Guttate P. I was just recently diagnosed with it. I am finding it hard to handle. I guess because it was so sudden. I was fine one day and then I had like 4 spots, 4 turned into 8 and then those 8 turned into a million all over. My derm gave me ictch cream and recommended various vitamins and foods to avoid etc. He also recommended tanning but to avoid sunburns. I don't expect it to be gone 100%. I mean I have only had my outbreak for like maybe 6 weeks but its just hard to deal with. I refuse to go swimming-heaven forbid anybody even see them and I can't dress up to go out to the club because these ugly spots.
Does anyone have any advice on how to get rid of the itching?
The cream I got really doesnt do much. I also have this P on my scalp. I've been using the Tar shampoo stuff and the Elta tar lotion but it just seems to me instead of minimizing these spots, I'm getting more. I even have them on my ears now.
How do you deal with your P? What works for you? How do you handle it when people observe your P and dont understand whats wrong with you?
