Today marks the very last day of my trial. One injection left, only two more follow ups (test) then I am done with it. Never regretted doing it, hope my P stays in check. O and Happy Valentines day to all x

I've been quite, may sound selfish but I almost forgot I had P. Just wanted to enjoy feeling "normal" while is lasts... I am now 1 yr into the trial (ends Feb), everything good so far. Nervous of what my P is going to do after that.

Hi all, I've been quite but all is good, my P still silent, no side effects from trial that I know of. Hope it stays that way. At least 1 summer without without P to look forward to - just need to get me a nice tan x Take it 1 day @ a time.

My one sister was diagnosed with a hereditary kidney disease today, Alport Syndrome, must have myself checked out as well. Where do all these rare diseases comes from. At least P prepared me for this in a way. One must just handle it best you can.

Read an article about a dr who has lots of success treating Eczema. Bottom line he prescr. a combination of antibiotics, steroids & creams instead of just one of it at a time. All three failed when used on its own. But together it works. Interesting

Still busy with the med trial, got a fright when my elbows flared up but nothing else so I am very relieved. Still hoping and still positive it was and will be all worth it.

Hi all, I am currently participating in a med trail for psoriatic arthritis. Within a month my skin was back to normal (first time since I was diagnosed and it was bad). Anyone here ever participated in a trial before?

I am curious as to how other psoriasis sufferers answer the endless questions from strangers when they see the outbreak on one's skin. I refuse to cover up the whole time.......
