Yes, it’s ridiculous. You are right. For example, if you cholesterol is high, it is not a problem to donate because that doesn’t mean the person who receives your blood is gonna have the same cholesterol. Only your body produces it that high. In my opinion, it’s the same with P. They have tests to detect HIV and other diseases but they can’t detect P. How come ? If the blood from a P donor is dangerous, why don’t they detect P without seeing it ? My P is not that severe and I’ve never been asked about it when I donated blood. In conclusion, keep walking 🚶♂️
Most of the people don’t understand. Only a few people understand and those who suffer from P. I suffer from an “easier” form of P. I have it on my elbows (not a big surface) and on my right calf (very small) where I was bit by a mosquito. Even though my P is not itchy nor painful I understand you. Sometimes I think that maybe if I burn my skin I will get rid of it 🙈 nothing grows on a burned skin. Some cells are missing 😁 Maybe one day the scientists will find a cure and I hope we’ll live to see that day.
Well, in Romania you are not allowed to donate blood if you suffer from skin diseases (psoriasis included) that are contagious. I don’t get the point of it. I’ve donated over thirty times before 😁 and I didn’t check on their sheet that I have skin disease because I didn’t think it’s contagious. Afterwards, I’ve learned that psoriasis is includ on the skin diseases list. So, if in other countries you are eligible to donate blood, even though you have P, than I will donate blood like I did it before 🤫
