P's driving me crazy today, itching like mad then feeling like I've rubbed it in acid soaked steel. I cannot wait to start the uv treatment. I'm feeling pretty miserable right now.

Apologies for not posting much, I have second degree burns over my right hand so I'm writing left handed and it takes much longer, 15 minutes for this post.

Any recommendations for something I could add to bathwater that might reduce night time itching?

Well I've arrived in North Yorkshire and as I was told, no mobile signal here. However my digs have some WiFi so I'll be on okay.

Nothing to do with P, I just need to vent. I just accidentally ripped one of my big toenails off, blood everywhere and it hurts like a you know what. Note to self - don't rip your toenails off again, ever.

I'm officially on holiday now and go away mid week. I'm hoping the rest and being away from stress will help some. There's only very patchy 4g cover and I know there's no WiFi so no dramas can reach me.

For years my plaques were a biegey browny colour, then a few months ago the turned pure white. In the last couple of days, my guttae has followed suit. I now look like the incredible polka dot man.

People who have had successful UV treatment, how long till you noticed improvement? I have both plaque, chest and back, and guttae, top to toe.

I put a can of the aerosol moisturiser in the fridge today. If the night time itching gets bad, hopefully spraying with it will calm it down for a bit, let me get some sleep.

Spec wearers, do you get P showing up where frame touches skin, particularly the sides of the nose?

Just read an article about the continuing research as to why the drug called thalidomide cause birth defect in babies in the fifties and sixties. Interesting cause professionally I worked with a victim and also, psoriasis is mentioned.

All the time I've had P, the colour of the plaques was, I guess a light brownish. I've just noticed the plaques on my arms have turned very very white now. Not sure why.

I mentioned a few days ago I was doing intermittent fasting for weight loss. I had a conversation last night where the person said they do it, but to help their IBS, another autoimmune condition. Anyone here have experience of that?

Inverse P gets mentioned occasionally. I see no sign of it on myself apart from possibly, the article quotes the ears. I have a lot behind my ears but none inside. Could that be inverse or just plain old plaque P?

Sounds almost a childish question this but, which is worst, plaque or guttae. I had plaque for years, guttae for just months. The guttae is driving me insane, the itching and way more pain and bleeding.

Further to the post Lindakay1948 made regarding things our doctors have said they thought psoriasis was, I did a little research and found the following.

I'm sitting in McDonald's. I brought my service user here for lunch. He has a bacon cheeseburger, fries and Coke. I have a bottle of water. My eating window doesn't start till two plus one meal here would use 90% of today's calories. I hate my life.

I have an Otterbox 3 part cover for my phone. I usually just wipe it over with a screen wipe. Today I removed it, and had a little snow shower of old flakes all over my legs. They've obviously gathered from my ear and built up over time.
23 Jul 20:27
I need to lose some weight so big changes to what I eat, but also when I eat. I'm doing what they call intermittent fasting. Not sure if it will impact my P though.

I'm curious, anyone tried over the counter anti-histamine tablets as a way to combat the itchiness from P?
