Coping

Just going through a horrible flare up and noticed my hands and fingers have started to peel (which is irritating & really sore) but not sure if this is psoriasis or not?? I haven't had it on the palms of my hands before but do have it on my hands.

Sorry to hear that Eilish. Have you started the elimination diet? Also increase your water and look into Moringa. Aloe vera gel is amazing.

No I haven't started it yet Susan as been busy moving house. Will have a look into that :-).. It doesn't look like plaques like the rest of my body but it's sore and quite thick skin peeling.

Hello John, I didn't think it was possible either til now. My finger tips especially are really sore at the minute. I had my 2nd bout of light therapy and it finished end of September and it did clear most but it's come back with a vengeance in places I don't usually get it :-( my whole body feels like it's burning it's not nice :-(

hello eilish, you are one of many that come back and say ,i stopped light therapy and its come back worse, i havnt done light therapy since i was a child over 32 years ago, trouble with it, you got to keep doing it which actually isnt good for you at all, i am sorry about what you are going through with this eilish, sounds very frustrating and very uncomfortable aswell

Don’t know about peeling hands, but I get it on my palms too. I was told it was a form of dermatitis. It gets worse if I am using hand tools ( gardening etc. )
My psoriasis is mainly on my scalp. Difficult to wear dark clothes and to remember “don’t scratch your head! “

My hands, particularly palms have been red, flacky peeling and sore. I wear cotton gloves (wilko £1 a pair) night and day covering hands in prescribed moisturiser. This helps with scratching because of the barrier between gloves and nails. been like this for over 3 months. Arms itchy too but not as bad as hands. Any ideas. Thanks.

Been to the doctor today and he said it is psoriasis on my palm and fingers and to keep an eye on them. Got lots of ointments and creams and ear drops. Also going for bloods for psioratic arthritis as my knees are grinding and crunching 😓 fingers crossed it's not, I'm only 23! ☹ & thank you joan, think i will invest in some gloves! I hope you feel some relief soon! X
