I normally go on the defence and say something stupid! Luckily my arms are down at the moment so I am uncovered.

They don't because I wear short sleeves ;)

lisa @misslisalou

give them a sarcastic response to shut them up.i have the erge to wear my shorts in public on hot days..but i couldn't cope with the dirty looks Tbh.

kayleigh @KayleighM

I don't really answer them, just reply 'dunno I just always wear sleeves' Avoids unnecessary convo and personal questions I don't always want to answer

Most usually know... However, I want to encourage you... Really encourage you to take off the long sleeves and embrace yourself. Enjoy the weather. Some people have an adverse reaction to the sun. I don't. Also, I did tons of research and anything that has sugar is brutal for us. Even bread and pasta turn to sugar in our bodies. Also, fruit high in sugar only makes psoriasis worse. I know it did for me... Be well and enjoy every breath you take.

I don't I wear short sleeves....if some doesn't like it they don't have to look and I have it elbows, hands and some up my arms....the hardest thing for me is my legs, I need to just think fuck it but it really get me down 😢😢
