I had a friend ask me if even though there is no sign of psoriasis on skin if it still doing harm on the inside since it's still and autoimmune disorder? I didn't know what to say.. anyone know?

Good question! I’m also interested in the answer to that.

Me too, I'll do some research tomorrow. I have a mixed bag of stuff myself , it's a hard deal, very sorry.

It is always active ! It can show up anytime anywhere ! Please know that psoriatic arthritis is right there also 😨! And it is more painful than you can imagine.

hello bren ,good question,hard to answer that,think our bodies battle on all the time whether you are a clear skin or not, fighting off everything to keep us in good health or try to anyway, i dont think anyone can answer that? we do go by symptoms for everything and work on that for our bodies for all diseases if possible to get better but, the autoimmune disorder is still there for us as you say,maybe its not doing harm ,just the trigger to set it off when the skin becomes psoriatic is when the damage is happening then the damage starts ?tough one :)

That's exactly what I think John ... our bodies tell us when we are not doing well. For example when I was eating junk food and stressing I had bad plaque P but now that I've been eating super healthy and relaxing more it's going away... I don't see why it would be damaging in the inside without showing on the outside :)

answer is then bren:) eat healthy,try be mellow as possible by relaxing ,try get rid of harmful stresses and have fun whether in relationships or in activities or both and live life the best you can as you only get one shot at it :)

That's an interesting question. My gut feeling is yes (no pun intended). I had a couple of issues with my gut, at one point doctors thought it was ulcerative colitis, one step away from Crohn's. Thankfully it seems to have gone away, but I can't help but think that everything is interrelated.
