1yrago when I still have P. covering my legs. I went to this famous fishspa. Dipped my feet & still no 🐠. They all wen to my father's. Got an idea to roll up my pants and exposed my flaky skin. Suddenly all 🐠 went to me & they're having a feast.

For one period of time there was a very popular fish-treatment with some exotic fishes, and everyone thinked that was a holy grail of treatment.

Af course anyone who saw money in that offered that treatmet for HUGE amount of money, and everyone suggested me to go to that treatment. I said to them - it's not revolutional treatment, it's hoax, every fish will eat Your skin because of fun for them, it's not an active suspstance, how can't everybody be aware of that?!

Today that is beauty treatment for the fraction of that money people paid in hope they will get better.

I actually have them at home in London! It sounds weird but is actually a documented therapy for psoriasis called ichthyotherapy. They're special fish called garra rufa / doctor fish. What they do is eat the top layer of dead skin, allowing treatments/sunlight to penetrate better. There are spas in Turkey offering special retreats for flakers. I've been overseas a lot so haven't actually 'used' mine for a long time.

Yes it's garra rufa, thank You, but it's no go ;)

Honey @honey

John. Yes it tickles and I love it.

Don. It is. You should also try it but don't go to an expensive one~

Psoriasis4good. Huge amount of money? 😱 Luckily I only pay 5 Php which maybe only cents in your country. 😂

Jack. You have your own? Awesome! Wish I have one too. 😂

Psoriatic4good @psoriatic4good

Yes... they didn't sell only treatment but whole package with stay-in and it was about 100+€ per day as I recall, and one fish itself was about 10€ + You need a special fish tank and a lot of care.

I've heard of this before. I don't know if it would gross me out or not...
