I HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH PITYRIOSIS LICHENOIDES . IMMUNE

Customer Question

I HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH PITYRIOSIS LICHENOIDES .
IMMUNE SUPRESSANT CREAMS AND STEROID CREAMS HAVE NOT CURED THE TERRIBLE ITCHING AND SKIN DISCOLOURATION.
ITCHING ATTACKS OCCUR SIMULTANEOUSLY ON DIFFERENT AREAS OF SKIN ON THE ARMS, LEGS , NECK, CHEST AND IN THE HAIR
MY HOME MADE PASTE TO RELIEVE ITCHING CONTAINS THE FOLLOWING

GROUND UP VITAMIN C TABLETS IN OLIVE OIL 
ALOE VERA GEL
TEA TREE OIL DROPS
I AM CONCERNED ABOUT HAVING SKIN EXPOSURE TO STRONG SUNLIGHT NEXT MONTH. ARE THERE ANY CONTRA-INDICATIONSY?

ARE SKIN DISEASES BEST ATTACKED INTERNALLY?

A BEDTIME COLLECTION OF SUPPLEMENTS INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING. THIS HELPS ME THROUGH THE NIGHT

VITAMIN C
VITAMIN B6 IN A B COMPLEX
MAGNESIUM AND CALCIUM TABLETS TO IMPROVE B6 ABSORPTION AND REDUCE KIDNEY STONES FROM THE VIT C.

I MAY BE GETTING SOME DEGREE OF AMELIORATION BY USING WRIST BRACELETS AND ANKLETS CONTAING REALITIVELY STRONG NEODYMIUM MAGNETS. IF THE OXY-HAEMOGLOBIN PRODUCTION IN THE BLOOD STREAM IS INCREASED WOULD THIS BE DEFENSIVE OR COULD IT SUPPORT PRODUCTION OF IRRITANT CAUSING THE OFFENDING IMMUNE RESPONSE

WHAT EXTRA CAN BE DONE TO DEAL WITH THESE PROBLEMS? WOULD A U.V/ I.R LAMP BE WORTH CONSIDERING
