Have been a flaker for 48 years. I'm happy in my skin.
Please don't message me, I will report you.

Hi All. Back from a nice week in Tenerife. Met a lovely lady who I have directed to this site and whose eyes I have opened to the perils of potatoes and other triggers. Hope you are well.

Nice large glass of Shiraz tonight. Sure I must be the only one on here still,drinking wine regularly. The trick is to find one your body likes(rose') in my case and.......... Relax.

Has anyone else on here had PUVA, including taking the pills and putting dark glasses on for 24 hours? I'm really suffering after having the treatment in my twenties ( I'm now touching 60). I'd be interested to hear your views.

Hi All. It turns out I have Psoriactic Arthritis in my right hand and Osteo in both my feet, both sides. Was lucky to see a consultant who is not pushing drugs on me. I've relaxed my diet and I'm trying to relax as much as I can. Best wishes to you.

Has anyone taken the York test or another type of intolerance test? Were you satisfied or was it a waste of £300? Did it improve your skin or joints?

Rheumatology appointment today. He shook his head at me when I mentioned diet and offered me drugs instead, which I refused. Next step: all joints checked with ultrasound.

Hi all. Recently had a very painful steroid injection into my finger joint. Side effect: clear hands and clear body. Sure it won't last but hooray!

Hi all. Hope everyone is well.

Huge day for me tomorrow. Hands are raging. Going to wear my killer dress and heels. You don’t like my red raging hands.. tough!

Raging red again, but it could be the jacket potatoe and wine I had for dinner at the O2 before seeing Lady Antebellum tonight!

Does anyone know a really old person with Psoriasis? If you do the research you will know that having this condition can shorten your life. I'm 58 and just lately problems with my health have started and I do not like it one bit!

Gloves and cream on tonight. Screaming psoriasis on both hands. Very stressful time right now.

Tip of the day: don’t pick a small scale on your ear lobe at work because you will get home to discover a nice bloody ear.

We all talk about moisturising but how much do you apply? I read a blog once that said you should scoop it out the tub and apply it. I have done mine that way ever since. I always apply a good handful with each application.

Has having Psoriasis influenced your decision to have or not have children?

I hope this site doesn't end up like Facebook with people posting rubbish which is not relevant to the reason for the forum. Everyday new people are here looking for help, I hope we can help them..

Has anyone else noticed that Psoriasis flares after a stressful time is over and that during the stress they are clear? That has happened to me many times.
23 Sep 22:07
A fellow commuter told me tonight that his skin flares if he doesn't get enough sleep. Think I might be the same.
22 Sep 13:11
Lots of talk here about stress, but what defines it? And surely it's what we class it as? Being late for work, dentist appt? Having no money? What are we stressing about?

Without mentioning Brand names. What treatments have you tried in your fight with the P? I have had steroid creams and shampoos, PUVA and now diet control.
