...feeling sad Maggie @maggie19624

Treatment, parenting, friends & family

So glad i found Flaym! I've had P for 20 years. My 8yr old son was just diagnosed with P on his face. I can't help but feel guilty for passing on my genes. Have been trying to treat naturally but had to resort to steroids recently after a bad flare.

Awwww not your fault Maggie, if anything you will be better equipped to deal with your sons P because you've been there seen it and wore the tshirt xx

Welcome to Flaym, Maggie! That must be really hard to watch your son starting to show signs of psoriasis. I know I find it hard to think of my sons developing flares, and I found it really hard watching my 3 month old baby developing plaques of what I can only think must be infant psoriasis on his face, head and arms. It breaks my heart just thinking about it. But then I think, well, we'll all be one big flakey family together, and I can only support them through it! My mum didn't have it and growing up she didn't know how to support me with it. But I will know, as will you 👍👍👍
