Inverted Psoriasis

I am a 43 year old female with inverted psoriasis under both breasts. I have psoriasis on my elbows and the very back of my neck is red but no dryness. I also noticed that the right side is more affected than the left and and I even my right big toenail is dry with psoriasis. I would like to fill in a full diagnosis if anyone would be willing it would be most appreciated. Also, the place where I grew up had a high sulfur content in the water - the water even smells like sulfur. I don't drink it now but am wondering if that is why I had psoriasis? Also, I tried taking the 30 C of Sulfur for a month and nothing happened...in gratitude

Thank you for taking the time. I deeply appreciate this. i hope I have answered everything you need. If I can think of anything else, I will let you know.
Remember, we don’t know and will never know your identity so be fully truthful when answering these question so that we can help you towards regaining full health.

1. Describe your appearance & age I am a 43 year old female. I was always about ten lbs overweight until my first child at age 21. I was in an abusive relationship and gained a lot of weight during pregnancy. Then at age 27, I moved across the country and I took Depo-Provera (one shot) and gained 60 lbs in a few months. I was in the wrong relationship but stayed in it for 13 years. I immediately lost 30lbs after leaving it.

2. What are the symptoms of your health problem: Psoriasis on my elbows. The right elbow is worse than the left. My big toe on the right foot is also infected with psoriasis. The back of my neck also has redness. It is also worse on the right side. I have inverted psoriasis I think it is under both breasts. It began on the right side.

3. How & when did this problem begin I see where this is going...it got worse when I decided to end my 13 year dead end relationship back in 2010.

4. What makes the problem better or worse Sweating makes it worse. Salt water - ocean or pool actually makes it better and starts healing it but I am miles from the ocean now. :-(

5. How do you feel emotionally. Since losing my job, I feel like I just want to be alone, away from others.
I am not coping well financially.


6. Describe your personality I am in the midst of cleaning things no one wants to clean, I've been taking apart the vaccum cleaner, the stove, doing the tough jobs..

7. What occupies your mind mostly The stress of not working...how to cope.
8. How do you respond to consolation Right now I am frustrated by it.

9. Do you want to stay alone or in company I normally want company but since losing my job i want to be alone
10. How is your sleep I wake up every night at 4am to go to the washroom.
11. Do you have any recurring dreams I dream of recurring dreams from my childhood.

12. What type of weather do you like and how it affects your complaints I love thunderstorms but sometimes I get migraines. I don't like muggy weather. I prefer the cold.

13. Do you fight or flight I am probably passive agressive. It takes a lot to make me angry but when I do, look out.
14. What are your fears Heights.
15. Do you normally feel hot or cold (I am usually hot and like winter more. I keep wearing light clothes in winter even……..)

16. What foods you love & hate I like chips and I hate okra specifically.

17. How is your thirst. This week I have been thirsty.
18. Any coating on tongue (some white coating on edges only…)

19. Any skin problems At age 11 I developed psoriasis on my elbows. It went away a year or two later. I think I have rosacea on my face, I blush deep red when I meet people I haven't seen in a long time, then they say why are you blushing?
Also, the place where I grew up had a high sulfur content in the water - the water even smells like sulfur. I don't drink it now but am wondering if that is why I had psoriasis? Also, I tried taking the 30 C of Sulfur for a month and nothing happened.
Psoriasis on both elbows worse on right. Dry scalp. Redness on back of head and neck, worse on right. Big toe infected with psoriasis - on right foot.

20. Any problems with respiration (nose, chest, throat) ( I snore a lot when sleeping.
21. Any problems with stool/urine Varies from runny to normal. I do better when I eat wheat free. I have two sisters with celiac.
22. Any sexual problems I sometimes have a lot of clots during my period. Last period I had was July then I had my period Oct 7 and passed a big white clot I think - actually thought I was pregnant but the results came back negative but deep down inside a part of me wanted to be pregnant.
I also had 3 deaths in our family this year (uncles) all within a month and I would dream of their deaths the night before it happened. I felt very needy in my relationship after that because I wanted that person to know that I loved them deeply but I was like a cling on at the time. Also, I've spent the last 4 years deeply involved in everyone else chaos - like I am on some mission to give away my money to others as I do without. I've finally taken a step back and it is hard but I no longer feel the urge to rescue.

Hi, I think the psoriasis may have been actually at age 14 when my grandfather passed away.
My periods started August 1983 when I was 13. They were regular until age 27 when I took Depo provera one time for birth control, then I had abnormal periods - no periods for 3 months then a period for 2 months straight.
I have to rewind back to age 19:
At age 19 I moved from the country to the city and went from drinking well water to chlorine water. There is also an oil refinery in that city so bad air.
I was raped and for 9 months straight after that I had my period and strep throat/tonsillitis. I found out later that I had mono. i also had blood poisoning twice in that time in my legs because of cut toenail. Note. My dad at age 19 also had blood poisoning and almost died. I feel it is connected to the rape. My skin was perfect until then. Then I started to have breakouts and rashes on my face. I never told anyone about it until probably age 27. I'll elaborate more in a sec. I was afraid of him because he was a maintenance man in my building so you see he had access to my apartment...
When I moved away at age 27, I had a massage which unlocked the memory of that rape which I had kept hidden...I started bleeding profusely that night constantly for probably a month.
My first abusive relationship was also at age 19 when I met my daughter's father - he was a Dr Jekyl Mr Hyde personality and I was actually afraid when I met him. When he proposed after 2 months, I literally went to the washroom and threw up. Talk about not listening to your gut...
I stayed in that relationship for 3 years and left when I saw that he was about to hit my daughter too. I had left a good paying job and started over and went back to school.
I lost most of the weight - like 50lbs after leaving him.
A few years later I moved away with my daughter to start a new start and work. i met someone who could not decide if he wanted to be in a relationship. He had problems with intimacy and experienced pain during sex due to foreskin problems. I bled every time we had sex and found out later that he had been abused as a child and he still does not remember. and I was bleeding because I was told by a healer I was processing his stuff. I know I am going deeply here but I must to truly get to the root and heal this. So he was abusive in the sense that he was angry and yelled all the time. When I would go to bed, he would stay up. When he would go to bed i would stay up. We were complete opposites. If I said black he said white. It was deeply annoying and we were in constant struggle. He wouldn't let me drive his car. He was very controlling but never hit me...I would have to ask him to have sex and why would I even want to bother to have sex if he was going to be complaining that it hurt. I couldn't do it.
I actually tried for 13 years to end the relationship.
Me as a person - I tend to go overboard and help everyone but myself. I seem to have a passive aggressive personality but I am working on that to be assertive but I do struggle to tell someone if something bothers me that they do.
What occupies my mind is love and how am I going to get another job? I started seeing someone who has been my best friend for ten years. He said he just wanted to be friends with benefits and I fell deeply in love with him. Now I've taken a step back and things have changed.
I cannot stand tight clothes - I cannot where turtlenecks I feel like I am being choked and have to take it off.
I like sweet and salty. I can't think of anything i hate accept okra and lima beans
Thirst is normal.
When I eat wheat my face breaks out in a rash. I get bloated and ummmm my psoriasis gets worse...lavender oil seems to help my psoriasis on my elbows but not heal completely.

I am sorry some of the questions are awkward.

Please let me know how were you emotionally affected by the rape

Now that you think about past incidences, what do you feel

How are your periods now

What do you mean that love occupies your mind

Did your psoriasis worsen significantly at any point in time, if yes, what was going on in your life at that time

I forgot to mention this important thing that happened at age 19. When I had the mono, the doctor gave me a sulfa drug and I broke out from head to toe - my dad also had a bad reaction to that. Every part of my body was on fire and itching.

Please let me know how were you emotionally affected by the rape.
At 19, I shut the memory down. At 27, I finally went for councilling. Finally forgave and let go.

Now that you think about past incidences, what do you feel. I am ok now.

How are your periods now
Every few months.
What do you mean that love occupies your mind. I wanted to be pregnant again. But now is not the time. I want to be consoled.
FYI, I took Pulsatilla this week and it has helped the emotions..

Please stop all homeopathic remedies that you are taking.

Wait for a week.

Then take a dose of Ignatia Amara 200c. Just one dose. Not daily.

Report back with any changes observed.
