I was looking on the Quora page in relation to narcissists and they said being around people with these traits can lead to developing a hyper immune disease. I have psoriasis and it got worse the more time I spend with my narcissistic mother.

I like many people have psoriasis on the small of my back,elbows,etc.

I am using an ointment prescribed by my family doctor. Already the dry skin is gone from my elbows leaving a slight reddening of the skin. I am hoping medicine works as well on other parts of my body. I am not as itchy as before treatment.

I have had psoriasis for a few years and I use moisturizers to control it. Mine is moderate but it does get itchy. I have a family doctor now and she is giving me a prescription ointment which I hope works. I only hope it is not too expensive.
