I don’t have P but my 13 yr old son does. I’m so grateful to have found this site in my quest to help him!
Sorry if I was reactive Michelle. I am sensitive to drug shaming. I understand avoiding them as I always have also. It was a tough decision to make putting a 14 yr old on a bio. I do think that my son’s P stems from the extreme stress and anxiety he has always had. I refused to medicate him and thought it would work it self out with time, love (and some therapy) but I see now how badly he has needed help beyond what I could give him.
Thank you everyone and no worries Michelle. We are well aware of the risks and did a lot of research and consulting before deciding the benefits outweighed the risks. Psoriasis was effecting every aspect of my sons life and was severely effecting his mental health and ability to live a normal life. I only wish we had done it sooner.
