Still learning about PRP

by joanpendergast published 3 months ago

Luckier than others it seems. Not so much itching and flaking. My hair dresser first noticed changes in my scalp. Red like rash all over. Went to dermatologist. Triamcinolone Crm and light treatments. No change. Primary dr thought I might have Laser Trelat which indicates a cancer. Had chest X-ray, mammogram, bone marrow, colonoscopy, endoscopy and many biopsies.

My baby's got what?! Hello!

Back when Saylor was 6/7 weeks she started with a small rash on both shoulders. We put this down to the rubbing of clothing. After a while, I spoke to a GP who said it was nothing to worry about and that when summer came (she was a winter baby) take her clothes off and the patches would disappear. Needless to say that's never happened!
