The affected part where the eruptions were present there was typically stinging type of pain which caused severe burning, itching and painful condition of patient.

I become very angry over it. If they don’t work as per my conditions I feel very hatred towards them. I don’t like people who don’t obey me or don’t work as per my will. I don’t get convinced then if they apologize or
say sorry. Once they hurt me I don’t forgive them and I hate such people. I feel how they did to me same should happen to them and curse in anger that all the bad they did to me more worse conditions occur to them. I curse them bad happen to such people whom I hate. And I become very irritable over it and don’t forget or forgive them. Due to all this I cannot concentrate then after over my
work. I would be physically present but mentally I would be irritated and cannot concentrate on my work. Also, I cannot remain alone I always need someone with me. If I remain alone I cant handle it so alwys require and desire someone to
