Way of Treating Pustular P
Ed! I have an unorthodox way
of dealing with pustular P. This
may help Katy for her Wedding (see Pustular
P on Feet Threatens Wedding on Beach).
I was diagnosed with this variety of P about 6 years ago.
At first, my derm, just from first sight had NO clue.
He had to take a scraping to be analyzed.
Sure enough, pustular P.
have tried Diprolene, Triamcinolone, Dovonex, Luxiq and several others
that are no longer in my closet. Depending
on the volume of coverage, this is my Best advise.
you have a few SMALL patches (7 to 8 pustules) pop each one, drain and
then apply a thin coat of over-the-counter Hydrocortisone Cream 1%.
Within an hour or less the itching AND burning goes away.
The next day you should have a scab.
Within 3 or 4 days, COMPLETLY GONE.
Then of course on to another patch.
Good luck, Katy! -Tammie S.
Response: Hi, Tammie.
the benefit of those who aren’t familiar with pustular P, it’s
characterized by lesions that are clusters of small blisters containing a
clear, non-infectious fluid. Note
that Tammie recommends this for small lesions with few pustules.
A danger, of course, any time you pop a blister of any sort, is the
possibility of infection. So
please don’t do this on a park bunch just after a jog, and don’t use
the pointy end of your kid’s geometry compass to pop the blisters.
