...feeling relieved Timo @BlueBassett

Treatment

Just took my last start-up dose of a new biologic (to me). Thankfully, I had almost immediate relief to my erythrodermic flare. My resting heartbeat came down about 10 BPM and the edema in my ankles retreated. Already a lot less red on the whole.

So great Tim!! 😊 is that supposed to read 100 beats per minute? Or does BPM stand for something else? Thanks Tim :)

Hi MishLyn. I was referring to 10 beats per minute. It was running around 85 (resting) now around 75, again. My Blood pressure improved as well. It had been creeping up and I was waiting to see if my flare was responsible, or my age. It had started to average 140/90. I've only checked it once in the past week, but it was more like 130/80. Made me feel better, too. I can be a stress ball at times. Somewhat mellow on the surface, but stressed out underneath.

Thanks for sharing Tim 😊 I am a lot the same. Very mellow on the outside and often on the inside a stress ball..lol. That is fantastic with your blood pressure, Well done! I read your post wrong..I thought it said your bpm was 10 when resting 🤤 LOL!
Do you still use creams when your on the bioligics? Or does it take care of it all?
Thanks Tim :)

I have one super-potent steroid ointment, but I use it very sparingly, and not on large areas. Other than that I mostly use Olive Oil as a moisturizer. Immediately after a shower and at times when needed, so I'm not so damn itchy. I also take the occasional anti-histamine for sleep and some day itching. Currently a coal tar shampoo keeps my scalp and behind my ears clear, even with the erythrodemric outbreak.

Thanks Tim :) I have never used olive oil to moisturize, just coconut oil and recently grapeseed oil. I will have to give olive oil a shot!

Michelle: I was re-reading your comment/question about biologics, and yes I was able to use biologics, alone, for a long time. I didn't need to use anything else to control my psoriasis. My recent flare has been a result of going off one I was on for 9 years.
