I have been diagnosed with nodular prurigo and have been advised to read up on 'mindfullness' which I am doing but it is not improving my skin. I have been suffering from this for over 3 years now and have bought a plug in microscope and watched hyphae growing from spores taken from my skin.I have had nail clippings sent off for examination and a skin punch test both of which have come back negative. The consultant said my toe nails were thick and white with loose white matter under the nail because I picked them.I do not pick my toe nails but do try and remove the foul smelling debris in an attept to rectify them and I only do this about 4 times a year.How can a consultant be so convinced that I dont have a mold infection without further tests.The nodules on my arms and legs did improve after being smothered in diprosalic ointment and bandaged with viscopaste bandages for a couple of weeks but once the bandages were removed the main nodules came back.Yes I do scratch them when they itch and the always have black specks appearing on the periphery of the nodules.About a year ago I noticed these black specks going into my finger nails and the my fingernails went thick and white. it was about 3 years ago that we had a persistent problem with the toilet overflow which resulted in black mold growing on outside of house and on window in bedroom.whilst this problem has now been rectified there is still some mold in the bathroom. if anyone knows wher I can get some private comprehensive skin tests done I would be grateful as then at least I can rule out a systemic mold infection and concentrate on being 'mindful'

  • more likely a yeast infection like candida. Is digestion affected IBS ears, fuzzy head or food allergies? go for healthy diet and avoid any yeast or fermented foods in the diet like beer, bread, fruit, fungi . Treatment for your diagnosis, if correct, is cryotherapy, steroid injection or surgical removal of nodules.
