I was on clinical studies for a recently FDA approved med. The psoriasis went away but after FDA approved I couldn't afford this med. The only other time it was gone was during my pregnancies.

My oldest daughter asked me why I participated in clinical trials. I told her so one day there may be a cure found. She's 22 and thought that was crazy.

How disappointing Lou 😔 They dont make it easy to afford treatment. If your willing enough to test these drugs they should be willing to continue treatment for you at a reasonable cost. So unfair, especially them knowing how your body will react once meds are stopped. I hope you can find something helpful soon. Have a browse through the natural approaches for things you can try at home that may be helpful. Have you ever tried supplements or dietary changes? Welcome to Flaym!

That's hard, finding something that helps you to have it taken away. Are there any other similar structured meds on the market you could use as an alternative option? My psoriasis went to its worst during my pregnancies. It was not fun. In fact it was terrible. *Shudder* Welcome to Flaym!

Michelle,
Tell me some natural remedies I'd love to try them.

Lou, what I find is working best for me is the addition of probiotics and an omega 3 that contains a high level of epa. Also avoiding dairy, gluten, red meat and nighshade plants, processed foods and sugar. I also make homemade healing slaves mixed with herbs and essential oils that is so soothing on my skin. Have you ever experimented with food changes to see if it could be helpful?

My dad was a psychiatrist and had a small patch of psoriasis on his L knee. When he retired it went away. I just found his and mom's wedding invitation. Dad died 2015, mom 2013 no psoriasis .
