I am a working mum of 2 girls and love nature the outdoors and a slower pace of life
Mine too. its been 3 years now. He has been to every skin specialist all over. He scatches a lot especially at night and bleeds a lot. uses a mix of cortisone ointment the doctor prescribed. It does flare up badly then calms down again. only relief is to be on cortisone from time to time. Doctor wont keep him on it as its damaging to the liver. Then he sleeps better. He is going through hell . No real solution. Hope your hubby improves.
Hi Sara - the only miracle cure that completely alleviated mine was through diet. But to help with relief you can try using Epsom salts in hot water (Bath) and then applying a dead sea salt lotion or cream. This really helped me as I was originally covered from head to toe. The only other advise from me is to get your hubby to stay away from all additives/refined sugars/ make your own bread / drink coconut/almond milk (stay away from dairy)/try to avoid alcohol during flare ups/no smoking/eat plenty of fish/white meats/red meats in moderation. I was on steroids for years and then decided to change my whole diet - and it worked. I suffered for over 40 years and now I am please to say I don't suffer any more.
Congratulations Sara that you stick with him all the way!!!!
He needs support even if he doesn't tell you.
Psoriasis can come and go or stays permanent and gets bigger. He needs moisturing with a natural cream and as he follows Light therapy he needs to moisture a lot. It itch because of the dryness. He needs to look what he eats and drinks. No hot baths or showers it dries out the skin. No stress.. so total acceptation of what's happening in dayly life.. more an 'I don't care' attitude. No miracle cure except maybe the Biological injections... but first he needs to do the treatments on the list.
Chemo tablets (no he will not loose his hair)
Some other tablets (we are not allowed to put the name here)
who decreases the white blood cells
Biologicals (human proteîne or non-human proteïne)
