Think i been covered up so long and not let it breath, i have always been like this natalie, worse last year with the looks,wasnt nice ones ,i wonder how these people that look in horror how they would be if they had this? i am sure they would be devastated after being a clear skin though i have never been a clear skin , mines not bad now i know like last year in winter 2017 thank you :X)

haha Sarah,I am not nuts on the sun too hot but need it for the flakes,if i didnt have psoriasis i wouldnt be that bothered by the sun at all, only thing thats the most effective i find for the skin aswell as sea water :)

At least with the sun out John it's giving us vitamin D although I don't like to stay out in it for long. When I went out today I kept hiding my hands as its easier than having weird looks, or people just staring at your hands if you are in a cafe

Great John! That's the difficulty of this, sun is good against it, but people's reactions are awful (causing stress and flares) if more people were aware, would be easier! That's why I hope Pauls idea pays off.


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

yes, i hope so too thanks :)

Susan
Susan @godcares
