Itch, treatment, strangers

I have had psoriasis for the last few years, not severe, but bad enough to cover my arms and legs. Now I'm having outbreaks on my face, especially lateral to both eyebrows.
Suggestions? Had chemo 19 years ago so my immune system is shot

Hi Lynne, I am sorry to hear about your outbreaks. I like to use coconut oil mixed with tea tree oil to help soothe and heal. There are many great posts from others if you browse the themes section for the topic face, that I hope can be helpful for you. I also recommend checking out the natural approaches topic for things that may be helpful at home. Welcome to Flaym!

Welcome, Lynne! It's really hard to see your coverage grow like that. I had similar last year with my first guttate p outbreak. Have you seen your derm recently? Might be a good call to see what options are available to you.

Thanks. Unfortunately my health insurance is horrible and doesn't cover much. A year from now I will have Medicare and a supplement so hopefully something medically can be done

Hello lynne, have you thought about diet/lifestyle changes ? It may lesson symptoms for you though, it is a choice i know, i wish you well

Thanks. I'm working on that right now. According to my food allergy testing the only thing I can eat is celery and that's debatable
