I can only think its because of the immune, some are weaker than others with the immune system,like some get psoriatic arthritis really bad but may have hardly any psoriasis, i knew of someone like this, you can get somone covered in psoriasis and have no psoriatic arthritis then you could have both things bad, some people can grow out of bad psoriasis like i have as i dont have it like i did as a child though arthritis said hello 33 years later after my birth ,some heal better with diet /lifestyle than others meaning,some will see a drastic improvement to completely gone and some with see some improvement though some improvement is better than no improvement i say, we are all different and there is many different types of psoriasis too :)

Hi John, I think I am a bit like you, got p on most parts of my body but, touch wood, not in big amounts. My worst area is my bottom, not a big area but it drives me mad sometimes ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ

That is the most mysterious parts of P John. We all react so differently to treatment and the way that it shows up on our skin. For me I have ranged from quite severe to mild. Most of my 25 years have been severe. It has only been since I started more of a holistic approach that things have been better over the past 4 years. Hopefully one day, with more research and knowledge we can get more answers. I think together we are making an amazing difference here at Flaym :)

Bottom/behind area is one of the worst places as you sit on it, also anywhere where theres folds prone to sweat is vulnerable, a good tip is, if you get genital psoriasis cut the hair off as low as you can go around the area, do not shave as that will make you itch, ironic i know, cause more itching if one has this problem ,be careful with the scissors though,i know i cut him many many times with them and the 2 guys who hang around him :),not good, this will help for less sweating, i been doing this for years, i used to have it on the tops of my hands though not bad a year ago, it hasnt come back there in near a year after i made changes its been gone ,my groin area is better, i seem to get psoriasis on one side, odd i know ,i win the lottery, i will be happy to leave England and just be in the warm, not hot just warm, i bet my psoriasis would be near on clear for good i think :) i got my ticket for tonight for the lottery, i think camelot who run the lottery could use some of the money they use for charity as they do for certain charities for research for psoriasis :),some of the things they put money into is stupid and pointless i think,well my opinion anyway :)


Andy
Andy @andy7

I agree about the folds and trimming your hair , I have to do that. Good luck with your lottery ticket tonight. ๐Ÿ‘

Catherine
Catherine @bumblebee68

The worst for me a
Is around my joints elbows knees fingers ..spine ...since taking on all your advice the swellingof my joints has has gone down so pain is much less ... but scabs on knees and fingers remain ... it's hard to heal through work and gardening . It's a double edge sword ...I need to keep moving for arthritus but the more I kneel and use my hands the more my skin cracks ... still thankful for the change ๐Ÿ˜Š


Ruth
Ruth @ruth89

Justin
Justin @justin1

I did not realise Psoriasis affected everywhere!

I am SO lucky only to have it on my scalp, elbows and knees!

Combined with it mildly ALL OVER, but up your bottom and on the soles of your feet - OUCH!


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

Hello Justin,it can affect anywhere and everywhere,if i could take from certain parts of my body and put it somewhere else i would :),friend of mine has it in just a few places, elbows,knees and thats about it, his is so mild and nothing worth mentioning and he puts steroids on it, i wouldnt bother for the amount he has


Justin
Justin @justin1

I recommend Coconut Oil, it works for me!


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

It is so weird how different it is over a lifetime even for one person, and then how different one person is to another on top of that. So many combos! Lovely picture Catherine!


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Love the pink hair@Catherine. It suits you! I bought some coconut oil and shampoo and I'm trying it from tonight.

@John. I agree with you. Depends on how strong your immune system is. When we get sick, Our immune system is down which is why our P gets worst. I can get P anywhere on my body but I never had it on my butt, private part or face. But I do know that I might get it there one day. I try to keep my immune system strong by drinking my Multivitamins (most of the time) and get enough of the right food in my body. Exercise plays a big role as well. Everything I do is for prevention of P. But this winter, I fear I'm going to have it bad. I can feel it on my skin.


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

Thanks Michelle,before i came here i assumed everyone got it everywhere maybe mild and some bad,my friend dosnt get it down below or face just mainly knees and elbows, i have tried all i can to clear it from my privates to face, i know it wont ever leave these places for good , i was given high hopes that i could clear it completely when i first came here from people, these people may not get it like i do meaning , i dont have it bad at all but get it anywhere, i have had to accept this and i have done so all my life, improvement yes can be achieved but for full clear up , i say no not for me i know that , could be worse though :)


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

John. You should come visit SA and go to one of the nudist resorts for 4 weeks. I'm sure that will help. (The sun and fresh air I mean).


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

Sounds good though i am quite shy Michelle for going nude :) i know salty water and some does help for down below, maybe one day i will go to south Africa,i work with many south Africans where i work, they tell me how nice it is down there :) if i won the lottery i know i wouldnt stay in the uk, i know my skin would get better for sure though i cant complain Michelle as i am not covered in it,i would have my own house in the warm with my private back garden all high fenced up and get it all out in the warm, that would be okay in my own private garden with my swimming pool and be nude , i would do that :)


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

True John. When having your own back garden you can do whatever you please. I went to a nudist resort and it was very private with lots of trees and plants. I did not walk naked in front of everyone else. Too shy for that! I just sat in the enclosed garden and got some sun. In SA, the only time you can go nude in your back yard is when you have high walls of course. There are a lot of peeking Tom's & Tina's out there. lol. crazy.


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Justin, The nudist beach sounds great but I'm too shy shy as I can't sit in the nude while every one is checking out my P. Lol.
