She had been suffering from this since 5 months. She had been applying steroid based creams on the eruptions and hence they were mild in appearance; all over body. The itching had reduced due to the allopathic medications. She had stopped applying the steroid creams since 20 days and hence they were spreading.
She had also been suffering from Migraine since last 15 years. The frequency would vary but the severity was intense. She also had mild acidity and constipation. There would be occasional shoulder pain due to excessive usage of working on computer. In winters she would have dryness and peeling of palm skin, which would be better by applying moisturizer.
Her appetite was average with no specific liking or disliking. She was sensitive to cold weather.
She was a free lance writer and would write on different subjects. She was also a production engineer working in a company. Her husband was director in a media company. They had mutually decided not to have children due to their lifestyle.
