2017 HELP: The heartbreak of (avatar) psoriasis cured by this one weird trick

The heartbreak of (avatar) psoriasis 
cured by this one weird trick
My avatar appearance got corrupted recently.  Someone else had the same problem.  I found a fix, short of a clean reinstall of Firestorm 64 and report it here.
My avatar with a skin disease.
  • Headline hype!  "The heartbreak of psoriasis" is vintage hype, nearly 60 years old.
  • "One weird trick" just emerged as click-bait on Facebook in the last ten years.
  • The skin disease just attacked my avatar a couple of weeks ago.   
  • In Firestorm 64 bit
  • It also attacked a friend of mine, so the treatment may be of use to some people.
  • The trick: I used my Firestorm 32 bit in the same grid.  
  • Then went back to my regular 64 bit viewer.  This worked for me.
  • A similar maneuver worked for my friend.
  • But the disease comes back when I travel the Hypergrid.
  • I have to avoid coming back to my home grid in my diseased avatar.

    • When I travel the Hypergrid
    This is my avatar with horrible skin disease

    • In a new HG destination

    This is my avatar covered with skin disease

    The problem is in my 64 bit version of Firestorm.  I could probably fix it completely by doing a clean reinstall.  I may do that eventually, but for now I will keep it in case I want to investigate it more.  It is no problem.   One of great things about virtual worlds is that we accept people as they are.  Skin-diseased?  Cross-dresser?  Monkey?  Over-sized mouse?  It's all okay.  We don't judge people by their appearance.  We judge people by what they do.
