I got in trouble with the school custodian once because I blew cat tail fuzz all over the classroom.
I had a patch on the back of my neck once. My little dog was sitting on the back of the couch and she was sniffing my neck. I believe that is because dogs have such an amazing sense of smell. Have not scientists proven that dogs can detect cancer in people before they get a diagnosis? The skin of a psoriatic person is not normal and that skin is dead or is dying and there would be matter (decaying skin cells/proteins) that are not intact, so a dog will detect those things for sure. Please let me know if I have this wrong.
Oh, I needed to see these suggestions. I have steel cut oats most mornings I do have eggs with no problems. Sweet potatoes are wonderful. I put it in the microwave with a little salt and pepper. Satisfying! Salads are important and it is not too hard to stay creative with them. One of my favorite soups is red chard with white beans. Easy and fairly low calories. It is good to know about the bread. Thanks!
Ok. I am going to part with those foods that cause a problem. Goodbye to the nightshade group. :( I love tomatoes, peppers and potatoes (sometimes) eggplant, not so much. It will be hard to part with the first two. Dairy maybe a problem. I need my yogurt serving everyday. I do not consume much red meat. More fish, chicken and beans for a protein source. I am really trying to focus on fresh fruit and vegetables that are suited for me. I have a banana nearly every morning with my oatmeal. Thank you for posting your plan and success!
I do find that apple cider vinegar helps. I soak my feet in it as often as I am able to. My toes and toenails are affected as well. This is not something that has always been with me. The hand thing is really pitiful. It almost seems like the skin turns to stone at times. I love A & D ointment, as it makes the discomfort go away overnight. I wear cotton gloves to hold the ointment close to the skin. I have been told to use superglue on the cracks on the palms and feet. I just use liquid bandage when it is very bad. I did use light therapy for several months and did not see a great improvement. Very expensive and out of network also. For me, the cold weather makes it worse. I need to try eliminating food items. I just find it very difficult to do. What have you tried that works?
It is rough having this disease. I did not officially get diagnosed until recently. I always had little tiny 'pits' in my finger nails and occasional bouts of 'eczema'. My dad had extreme plaque psoriasis from an early age. Thick white, flaky and bleeding patches all over. I have since developed palmar-plantar psoriasis in my 50's. It is very painful. We need to be able to do things every day. When my hands flare, I must glove up for everything. Chores, food prep and paperwork at home. Heavy moisturizers. Always. My feet are forever splitting and flaking. My nails on my feet are far worse then the nails on my hands. Added complications are problems with my circulation in my legs and developing wound issues. You look like a healthy young person. Fast forward 20 to 30 years. Make your health your number one priority. Keep nutrition and fitness important. I am pretty sure that wellness plays a big part in calming this problem. Live your life and don't give in!
