Snap, mine is also the back of my hands. I use a cream from Salcura. It stings but calms mine down.

Hi Lee I'm also a chef in the UK and I've started getting psoriasis on my hands the past few months it's proving difficult to get rid because our hands are always in hot water or in dough or other stuff I would try using creams on your days off to try help

Thank you Kim and Dean....currently i'm using Silkis calciriol ointment...it seems to work for a couple of days then the condition seems to get worse again.... At the moment work seems to have halted...surprise surprise :( but i am going to the Churchill Dermaology Dept tomorrow 14/7/17 11am. Fingers crossed they could have a answer. The condition now has spread to the bottom of my feet, walking has now become an issue...its like walking on drawing pins.

Today went well...I have seen a specialist, I was given a 69% body coverage of psoriasis after a skin inflammation. New medication has been prescribed, along with creams and a spray foam for the thicker parts of the condition.

The new medication is used on cancer patients but only a small dose. Starting at 5ml once a week for a month. Bloods taken everyweek to make sure my body can take the dose. Should be massive improvements in 12 weeks. Churchill Dermatology :)))) love ya xxxx

Hi Lee. Really hope this works for you. Please let us know how the new treatment is going.
69% coverage must be so tough. Will keep my fingers crossed for you.
