Got a friend here with a skin problem that's been troubling her for the past year and a half. It started with dime-sized itchy spots that look like mosquito bites (but less raised), which started under her breasts and close to sweat glands, which came to spread over her body. Doctors are stumped.
Now after the warm weather has begun, she's got raised red skin in a rash pattern around her underarms, and spots where she's itched the skin a little raw and open. This started about 2 months ago.
Her complaints are also acid reflux problems after soda, sausages, chips.. The issues fluxuate, but they are ongoing, started about 6months ago.
She's age 30, has amalgams, mildly obese, but does not suffer hypothyroid issues or other chronic illness symptoms above what's described above. Her issues began after living in Denmark for 6 months. She is otherwise from the baltic countries, Latvia.
This weekend while visiting she has been coughing a great deal and has a raw voice- she describes an ache at the point at the base of the neck between the clavicles, and an ache at the diaphragm when coughing.
I suspect a parasitic issue.
She reported a tingling in the face and skin, a little like a vibration after 2 drops n-butyric acid in water, after about 30 mins. She figured it to be a positive thing. :-)
She has not reacted strongly to painting Lugols on the underarms.
Any thoughts/input very welcome and thank you for listening :-)
