Hi Ewa. Oh we all know that feeling. too terrible especially when you flare up. I know I always say this over and over again, but you need to look at what food you take in. You can't go and have a juicy burger with soda while having a flare. It will just get worse. Your body is inflamed and you need to focus on eating anti-inflammatory food. Unfortunately not all of us are the same. what works for me might not work for you. I drink turmeric in the mornings and I eat mostly veggies, salad and white meat. I do eat red meat twice a week. I also use a tar cream for my P. It slows down the growth of the skin cells. Try keep most of your food anti inflammatory. no juicy fat making food and no fizzy drinks. your system has been triggered by the antibiotics but it can get better. stay focused, determined and see the improvement. Good luck. :)
Hi Ed. Quora is one of my favorite places to go :) well, the narcissist has the absence of conscience, a psychological need for power, and a sense of importance and insecurity which is why they try to intimidate others. I do not associate myself with people like that as they are toxic and definitely not good for us. They don't like me and I don't like them and I would not even want to negotiate sitting in the same room as them for 10 minutes. I'll just lose it. We have a choice of who we want to include in our circle, family or no family. Do what is best for you and avoid all the toxic people in your life. You matter. Not them. :)
Yes to be diagnosed with Psoriasis can be very alarming for one as we do not know what to expect. looking at pictures, reading some posts about P will freak us out but, we are not all the same. I was diagnosed with P in 1992. I was 17. I only had 3 flares during this time and once, my P disappeared for years. I don't go to Derm's anymore, nor do I see a GP about my P. I've learned how to control the condition. I am basically 5% covered and that is nothing to me. I had strep throat & Bronchitis last November and my P flared up. My GP gave me cortisone but it did not really work. The spots are gone now but healthy eating does help. Oh I cheat with food but I keep it balanced. Don't worry about this. Try to have a good diet, get enough sun and try to stay healthy. I'm using a tar ointment almost every day for the past 27 years and this has helped me to manage my P as well. Good luck and remember we are all here to support you :)
Yes Lianne. 6 hours sleep is enough for me. oversleeping can actually stifle creativity, due to feeling sluggish and groggy upon waking. Some researchers suggest naps. An hour-long nap, for example, allows us to begin bodily healing and recovery and can be squeezed in at any time we have an hour-long break between other obligations. Ultimately, how much each of us sleeps must be determined on a case-by-case basis. The right number depends on our lifestyle, habits, and health. I found that if I get less than 4 hours sleep, my P flares up. :)
Hi Taz. I'm from SA too. I've tried Dovobet but with no success. I use the LPC cream from Dischem Pharmacy. You can get it on the shelves. The tar cream slows the skin growth and I've been using it as in forever but remember what works for me might not work for you. You can try it and see from there :) Good luck!
