Secrets, coping, treatment

I just got diagnosed with genital psoriasis and it is effecting me deeply. I'm so disgusted with myself and feel like i will never have a sex life again. I don't know what to do. I'm trying to stay positive but every time i see it I get depressed

Hello tim, i understand all too well, , i have had there all my life, even my diet /lifestyle changes cannot shift it from there, i do avoid sex quite a lot, i do use a steroid there from time to time and olive oil,its a hard place to shift i know , i will message you what i do and use, steroids are bad but i can limit it as i have no choice thanks

Welcome to Flaym, Tim. Have you seen a dermatologist to get your diagnosis? If you haven't already I would speak to your medical team about how much this is affecting your happiness and mental health. There are bound to be options for you that will help. Please also remember that psoriasis is a "wax and wane" condition that will come and go with varying degrees of coverage and severity through time. There may well be clearer times for you around the corner. Check out the themes section for more posts on genital psoriasis. Many of us here at Flaym have it!

Hi Tim, it's not your fault at all.
Please contact John and Susan as I do believe Johns Diet and Susan's Positive Mind Attitude has helped to put my P to sleep.
Tim, you are special and a wonderful person, get better soon and smile 🌹❤️

Hi Guys, have just had a very cold and dry winter past and of course a flare-up in the private areas. Any advice? I dont really like using cortisone preparations down there. Suggestions?
