Psoriasising since 1997...

2 weeks into vitamin D analogue cream applied daily. Arms are looking so much calmer, torso slower to respond but getting better. Redness, sting, both feeling much more positive. Hurray for science and synthetic vitamins! 👌

Getting on with a daily application on vitamin D analogue cream to bring my guttate flare down. One week in and it's feeling much better! For those who've never tried it, is non steroidal. For me, a good option!

Recent flare up getting worse... Off to the GP I go later this week! Hoping to find some options that I can add in to my daily routine to stop my guttate turning into plaque... I knew that prolonged sore throat would not be my friend!

Third week of a sore throat, and hey presto, guttate is appearing! Just like 18 months ago after throat infection. Torso, legs and arms... A bit of a sense of dread, but feeling less scared this second time around. Hope it doesnt spread too far... 💚

I'm trying a new product that I've not seen on the shelves before. It's a liquid Epsom salt bath gel by Westlab who do the salt granules for bathing. It's on offer in Asda for UK Flaymers. There's a himalayan salt one too. I'll see what it's like! ✨

I have changed my hairstyle to embrace my "widows peak" at the front of my hair. It means my eyebrows and forehead are on show all the time now! A leap of faith as these are psoriasis sites for me in the past that are now calm and doing well ✨

Rustling up a new batch of turmeric paste tonight. What anti inflammatory things do you have in your life to help your skin? Settled down again at the moment. Thank goodness! It has been quite up and down with food reintroductions...

Trying something new from a tip I got from Flaym: Md's recommendation for wheatgrass. And tonight I'm going to buy a new (cheaper) spray on moisturiser brand to see if its anything like the Aveeno one I swear by! 🌿💚👌

Anyone else's psoriasis transform over time to look like dry "rings"? Mine has gone like this on the bits I have left, like kind of mini crop circles that peel at the edges but are very shallow in depth...

So much happier on no nightshades! Feel like a balance is getting restored. What a valuable piece of actual evidence! I tried fresh aloe vera yesterday too. So far no effect... But smells nice! 🌿

Skin doing much better for now, even after swimming today! No nightshades now for me. No instant reactions, took a while to build up then took me by surprise. I'm going to try a new green juice tomorrow. I'll Instagram it @thislifethisskin 👌

Bizarre twist! My psoriasis has become more active on my lower half of my body than my upper half. Maybe it is migrating?! Tops of feet (in a perfect line pattern, quite mesmerising) and knees, and on the bum. Anyone get this? Upper half is calm! 🤔

Ended up covering arms up and getting self-conscious for the first proper time in many months. Psoriasis trying to conquer! Looking a little calmer today. This condition is such a cycle! Which means an "up" cycle must be right around the corner...

Arm flare ups soooo annoying! So visible and grating, and rubs on everything whilst moving around in the day... 😑 Can't wait for it to fade a little... Which it surely will! Just a case of when ✨

Recent flare has died down, yayyy! So grateful. A busy time right now... Still focusing on diet and inflammation. Doubled up turmeric tea and been very limited on fruit. Continuing that approach, focusing more on sugars in foods... See how it goes!👍

How quickly things can turn around... Skin was great this time last week and now a week later it is looking its worst for months on arms! Isn't psoriasis cruel at times. Time to switch things up again and try something new!

The forearm guttate has officially turned into forearm plaque! How intriguing... 🤔

At a family reunion, skin is good, family is good, life is good! Back on the turmeric tea (strong) every day, and think it's really helping so much 💚

Forgotten how ace coconut oil is! Hadn't used it topically in a few years, did today as got fed up of my elbow flakes. Flakes are fine everywhere else at the moment! Since putting coconut oil on them this morning, they have been flake free all day 👍

Arms are a mess of guttate spots. Maybe nightshades are not my friend after all longer term! Or maybe it's other stuff... I've made a load of anti inflammatory snacks and am going to make a giant batch of turmeric paste tonight. Back to basics! 😄
