Spotty since 1998. Writing about spots since 2012.

Lately any lotion or oil, even ones that I’ve used for awhile, that I put on my skin makes my spots burn. But if I don’t put anything on, feels like hundreds of needles stabbing me. Has this happened to anyone else and how did you make it stop??

Ladies! Would love some advice on some comfy bra brands, aside from sports bras. My back is covered in spots and everything I have is really uncomfortable. Thank you!

Ladies! Any advice on best brand of hair dye to cover grays but gentle for scalp psoriasis?

Looking for recommendations on a face wash. I have guttate spots on my nose, cheeks and close to the hairline. Thanks!

Has anyone seen positive results with spa treatments, like a salt cave/room or a seaweed wrap?

I had a really awesome conversation today with two co-workers over who were curious about psoriasis, what it is and how it affects the body, not just the skin. Now there's two more people out there who know it's not contagious!

Frustrated that its getting warmer out and this flare is only getting worse. Not looking forward to another summer of stares and covering up my legs. Bright side, maybe people will give me some space on the subway?

Ummm yeah, co-worker asked me today if I had chicken pox...

Anyone else ever feel like a human snow globe?

Any recommendations for body makeup to cover guttate leg psoriasis? Today I'm using Maybelline foundation but its a little too dry for coverage.

I love that a simple cold knocks me on my ass for two weeks. Stupid, broken immune system!

Whenever my skin is flaring on my legs, they also bruise really easily. Does that happen to anyone else?

My activewear finally got used for it's proper purpose today! Now hopefully exercise has some positive effects on my psoriasis.

Ugh, yesterday my scalp was so itchy on the train but I had to hold back from scratching because I was stuck sitting between two other people and I knew once I got scratching I wouldn't stop and would be stuck with a snowstorm.

Finally hit 65 degrees in New Jersey today so got some sun on my legs, but forgot the sunblock and can already feel a little stinging on my now even redder spots. Like that song says, wear sunscreen!

I'm inspired by all the "experimenting" with food & drink I've been seeing and am doing my own tonight with a bottle of red. Will let you know how it goes :)

Does anyone else feel that blowdrying their hair with scalp psoriasis irritates it or helps it? Everywhere I've read says not to but mine feels less itchy after blowdrying but hopefully am not causing any more damage.

This chronic fatigue is by far one of the worst symptoms of psoriasis. Sometimes I'm just tired down to my bones. Though having a toddler try to push me out of bed and telling me its her bed at 3am might not help that situation either!

What are some of the most off-the-wall treatments y'all have tried or heard about? I'll admit to trying the infamous breast milk self treatment and got no results!

I feel like no amounts of lotion will help my dry cracked hands. Where the heck is spring?
