Here one of Shuna’s patients Kerry talks about her experiences with her condition both before attending Sussex Trichology, how she found the consultation process and following attending for regular treatments in the clinic. In this case, in particular, Kerry talks about living with Psoriasis, although her feelings would be similar to all experiencing a scalp condition.
I’ve had Psoriasis since I was about 11 or 12, I’ve been to the doctor numerous times and been given various medicated shampoos and creams and lotions and nothing really worked. When it got bad it scabbed up and gets lumpy and bleeds. My husband used to tell me off when I used to pick at my head to try to alleviate the itch as when it was bad it felt quite itchy and tight.
So it was up to him (husband) who pushed me to give something else a go and recommended that I should see a trichologist as the medications from the doctor hadn’t worked. To find Sussex Trichology I “googled it”, I had also heard on a previous TV programme that someone had mentioned Trichology for psoriasis, so I “googled” Trichology Sussex and Shuna’s was the first or second site to come up.
I came for my initial consultation which was an hour and we went through my life, lifestyle what I used before and various things the doctor had suggested. We now treat it by having a cream applied first (to the scalp) which is left to soak in ( and then steamer put on) a massage and various shampoo to wash it all off and then I dry my hair. My hair and scalp feel wonderful now; it’s the best it’s ever been! my husband no longer tells me off for sitting and picking at my head, there no longer any flakes that come on to my shoulders so I don’t have to worry about wearing a black cardigan and being paranoid. There’s no more itching or feeling of tightness, fabulous.
(About Shuna) She’s lovely, does wonderful work! (Laughs) it’s very comfortable here, welcoming and it’s an enjoyable visit. I would highly recommend Shuna and I have mentioned to people who are suffering “oh you should see a trichologist!”
