Pustular Psoriasis - Kathy's Story
at home mom Kathy thought at first that the break outs on her hands were the
result of excessive detergent use. With three children, one still in diapers,
to take care of and a house to keep clean, it was an easy enough mistake to
make. When the condition worsened and she was unable to find relief from home
remedies or over the counter creams, she made an appointment with a
dermatologist. The diagnosis was Pustular psoriasis.
Kathy tells us that the cycle of blistering, drying out, peeling, cracking
and bleeding sometimes occurred twice a week. “It's very painful the palms itch
and burn and they are raw and tender.” Kathy reports “Pustular psoriasis runs
through a cycle and you think you’re getting better but it starts all over
again.” She went on to say that the simplest tasks became a burden. Rubber
gloves became a necessity. Giving herself a shampoo, bathing her toddler or
doing general housework became literally a pain to accomplish.
”I had tried various home remedies and ultimately was prescribed Cortisone cream
with white cotton gloves from a Dermatologist. The gloves were constantly
stained with dabs of blood from the dryer areas.” Unfortunately, the condition
just seemed to worsen - at one point Kathy’s children asked her not to touch or
rub their skin because...."your hands hurt me Mommy". “It was just awful,”
Kathy said. “One night after being very disgusted with my Dermatologist I
decided to surf the Web for any information regarding Psoriasis and what I found
by chance was an article on Emu’s Zine. I was able to contact Nettie Bunton of
Purple Emu. When Nettie sent me her samples and I started to use them......well
that first night I felt like a gift had arrived from heaven.”
EMU OIL - W/OUT THE PSORI CREAM (cream had not arrived yet)
After 1st application the itchiness was instantly relieved. The dry flakes
disappeared they were "soaked up" by the oil. After a hot shower I oiled up and
put on cotton gloves - the itchiness stopped but the skin is still raw and very
tender. First night in months that I didn't awaken to clawing at the palms of
EMU OIL -W/OUT CREAM
Applying four times a day. Will sleep with gloves again. The itchiness has
subsided drastically and the tenderness has eased up somewhat. Still red and
inflamed. Not as raw. My kids, husband, Parents and in-laws all say my hands
look much better. They can’t believe the difference. The peeling and flaking
are much better. I'm very excited.
Day 3 -
OIL W/OUT CREAM
Applying about 3 - 4 times a day. Less cracking, seems to be peeling a bit
EMU OIL W/OUT CREAM
Applied 3 -4 times. Still dry, not as itchy, The "Palm reading Lines' are very
cracked looking (Deep) I see fewer blisters forming. Not as tender. I hope
that this is not part of the pattern (psoriasis has a cycle - that it repeats
EMU OIL W/OUT CREAM
Still 4 times a day. Feeling better. Less itching Still flaking and cracking,
Not as tender.
EMU OIL AND PSORI CREAM II
The cream is very soothing, I don't know if it's in my head but my hands feel
smoother. Not as cracked as they've been
END OF WEEK TWO
Using the combo of the oil and cream I feel that I am definitely seeing and
feeling results. One comment I must make is that the Psori Cream although
wonderful, when there is an open crack or blister, the cream burns very much and
causes discomfort, unlike the oil.
END OF WEEK THREE
This was a bad week there were a lot of blisters and peeling and cracking but it
seems somewhat more tolerable using the products.
END OF WEEK FOUR
I suppose that the cycle had to work it's way through my system one more time.
After last week, they are very raw again, but not any where near as raw as
before using the products. I also developed a small patch on my knee. Which
seems to be clearing up rapidly from the products.
Using the products pretty faithfully, cracking not as deep, peeling is slowly
subsiding and I'm really just suffering from tenderness and redness. I do
forget to apply four times a day sometimes and do see that the dryness becomes
worsened. I'm definitely seeing results and am very satisfied.
I can now touch my children without complaints. My two year old doesn't try to
kiss the boo boo's on my hands any more and I can even (not to get to personal)
touch my husband lovingly again without the use of white cotton gloves !!
Emu oil has truly made a difference in my life. It also helped me with terrible
calluses on my feet. I think I'm hooked for good. I've had to replenish with
Nettie once so far and I'm sure I'll be doing that again. My hands now just
look a little dry and rough but that is a far cry from November, December
January and Feb. and March.
Note from Nettie Bunton of Purple Emu: “There is no known cure for any type of
psoriasis to date. All we can hope to do is treat the symptoms and make life
easier for those suffering from psoriasis or eczema. Whenever you have an
outbreak, it is best to treat it immediately and steadily until it is cleared
