Hi Alan, Welcome to Flaym! I have not seen a dermatologist in over 10 years, but I do remember having to wait a few months as well in the past. I am sorry you have to wait so long. Check out the natural approaches topic in the themes section for things that may be helpful for you to try at home while you're waiting. Hope you can find some relief soon!

Glad you found us, Alan. Yes me I was waiting 7 months on a list for light treatment after refusing immunosurpressants... in the time I was waiting I joined Flaym and got loads of inspiration and now my p is the best is has been in 21 years! This waiting list time could be time for you to try things and see what could work for you. Welcome!

Hey Alan, welcome to Flaym.
Browse the questions and answers, you'll find that there might be some things to do before you see the specialist. If it's months you might even be able to control a lot without heavy medication...

Hi Alan. Start with anti inflammatory food and drink. Plenty of fresh air and sunshine if you can get it. If not take vitamin D supplements. I really hope you will see much improvement before your appointment is due.
