yep, i did,try the less sore ones first if you got less sore ones,i went down my bum crack, i nearly cried like a little girl, In the morning it was better though, i do it a bit now and again down there, everywhere else is not bad with it ,just a while with sting and maybe itch,it did subside though, moisturise over the top does help i find, good luck Caitriona

John ..when you use lemons does your p look and feel more inflamed after ??


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

Hello Catherine, can look a bit blochy red in places and feel like its worse but then it subsides over time within the hour maybe less, i have not put any lemon on today, i am presently looking at my right arm and its fading out to slightly white patches,could be a mixture of sun and lemons as i have had a little sun on my arms, my side under my rib cage is good, slight flakes but, i havnt put anything on it today, it will clear before long i know that,

If i could take my genital psoriasis and stick that else where i would be happier i know that, it does hurt sting for sure when i sqeeze lemon on him then i wack some moisturiser on top,i used to just put steroids on it and that was it for years,if i was seeing a girlfriend, i would have no choice but steroid daily there,it can be uncomfortable and painful

Thank you John! I never had this courage before Flaym. It has changed how I see myself, for the better. I am not just flakey me, I am flying a flag for others to actually see psoriasis out in the world! I hope it will normalize it even a tiny bit.
