My first attack was when I was 15, I was covered in lesions and I was in care. I was picked on and staff accused me of having scabies!
I had another attack at age 17 and then at 30 and now I have chest pains and severe pain in right hip and knee; my nails are pitted and I cannot have gel nails anymore.
I get very tired as well as looking after autistic child and baby alone and working. I also have eye infections due to this dreadful disease. I have lesions on my chest at moment and just hope I never get coated again with the lesions.
