Customer Question
I am 50 year...

I am 50 year old woman with shoulder length straight dark brown hair, after some trauma my hair has thinned down to nothing, has fallen out and I have a bald patch on my crown the size of a satsuma probably due to my psoriasis. I live in Switzerland and my dermatologist has tried me on various lotions and potions and whilst my body has cleared up the problem still remains on my scalp, ears and nose - PLEASE CAN YOU HELP ? Juliet

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Are you having any breathing problems?

3 years on and off, I own a bar/restaurant/hotel in the Alps, am 5ft 10, a size 14 and consider myself to be healthy (apart from alcohol. Occupational hazard

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had graves disease in my 20's and had a thyroidectomy and a breast reduction, I suffer from reoccurring cysts in my breast and wrists, all ops proved benign, and have suffered 4 breaks on my left ankle during 6 years, I sound like a freak now

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
