Latest measure of an improvement in the condition of my psoriasis. I took off the most chafy pair of drainpipe jeans yesterday, and no flakes inside the knees! That is a massive win! How do you measure improvements in your psoriasis everyone?

A full unbroken nights itch free sleep does it for me.

Generally, my bad days consist of lots of itching of my scalp. Improvement is felt when there is no itching or scaling, that's how I know if my diet or shampoo or whatever, has a positive effect.

Blessings instead of flakes.

Yay Sarah!! That’s awesome news.
I can only measure my pain and swelling of my psoriatic arthritis since I’ve rid myself of the skin plaques a couple years ago. But I know if it’s good or bad depending on how I move when I first awaken.

The ultimate test: can I go swimming in a public pool

Thats great to hear Sarah! 😃 For me, the ultimate test is how my bed sheets look in the morning. They have been flake free for about 7 weeks 😊 Funny tho, how I still expect them to be there when I make my bed on the morning, lol

Sarah I remember back in the day it was pain. Psoriatic arthritis was bad but my skin had these massive patches that were more like scabs, not flakes. I remember at times I would take my pants off and I would have these blood spots on the inside where the skin would crack. There were other times when I had nylons on (long ago. Haven't worn them in years!), there would be blood on the outside and my co workers would let me know. They were awesome friends to me. When that lessened to just scaling with my changes, the I knew things were improving.

Hi Sarah. Mine is when I get up in the mornings and see no flakes in my bed then I have a smile on my face the whole day

Look on the floor if there is nothing there it's a good sign.

Mark does little dog poop count? Hahahaha

I like your psoriasis measures people! That is cool to see how others check their progress. For most it seems no flakes = winning! For me I also think I measure the itch too. I think the itch precedes the flake outbreaks in my case so less itch = less flakes.

Me it's the red also!
