Coping

I would like to announce a new addition to my psoriasis family. Fingernail psoriasis has arrived, joining guttate, toenail psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. I would like to think my family will not be getting any other additions.

Psoriatic arthritis is cause by arthritis so bad it affected your skin is very rare there is a test to take and the meds will tear out your stomach
Soak feet in hydrogen peroxide

I know about nail psoriasis all too well and psoriatic arthritis, i dont get this problem now thankfully for me ,are you taking turmeric in your diet Diane?are you eating a psoriatic diet? i am sorry you are going through this, only way i attacked the inflammation with changes ,Mine first started at the nails over 15 years ago, painful or what :( ,next stage was my eyes , severe dry eye and then the joints joined in, it wasnt a good time i know,i never want to ever go back there, i am sorry about all this though Diane ,its a bummer

Hi Diane. I'm sorry about your nail Psoriasis. I don't have it but I try to care for my nails and keep my body toxin free. I do have a split nail on one of my thumbs but it comes and goes. Like now, its gone so I'm not even sure if it nail P. I have heard that a tar soak works well for nail P but I'm not sure. I have been using my coal tar for so many years that maybe it's actually helping preventing nail P?? Good luck and I wish you well :)

I am on a fairly restrictive anti inflammatory diet, although I have just been on holiday and it is quite hard to stick to it while you are away from home. I managed to maintain it most of the time with only a few minor food mishaps. I had been taking turmeric and black pepper capsules but I ran out, I must get some more. I thought it was only a matter of time before the toenail psoriasis migrated to my fingernails.

About 30 percent of people with psoriasis also develop a form of inflammatory arthritis called psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Like psoriasis, PsA is an autoimmune disease, meaning it occurs when the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue, in this case the joints. It does not stem from arthritis first.

I did think you were on an anti inflammatory diet Diane, thought i would ask anyway,It is difficult when one is away ,many would agree as people dont generally eat like a caveman nowadays i know, everything has chemicals or some crap in it, its difficult i know unless one eats at home all the time,You know there is a possibility of improving it in time and it does take time , we got all the time in the world to get on top of things and i am sure you will, I think you will get on top of it Diane , i wish you well


Michelle

That's right Diane. I have PsA already but I can't complain about my arthritis. Who eats healthy anyway when going on holiday. Not me. But I do go back into my routine once I get back home or when I feel a stiff thumb. Like John said, we got all the time in the world to get on top of things. Well said John. :) and living a healthy lifestyle will improve our P as well. :)

I take 1200 grams of ginger a day, for inflammation. That could be helpful for you Diane.

IDA @ida1

thanks for some good tips here will try the lemon and tar soap and try to stop the creams but what will I use on my leg any ideas?


Michelle

IDA, as you know I'm really into the coal tar. Been using it for many years and still do. I've been experimenting with turmeric paste, my P looks good but I will only see after this week or the next. The reason why I use the coal tar is because it dries out the Psoriasis. I drink turmeric for inflammation and I moisturize a lot. My P is looking quite good even though its winter. I'm surprised. Could be the paste maybe?

Diane that sucks. Been a bit of a tough year for you. I wonder if it's stress related. Sure hope you get it under control.

I started using turmeric from Trusted Nutrients as it is in the purest form on amazon and I just bought the Tar soap will give it a couple of weeks thank you so much.


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Hi IDA. Good luck with the tar and the turmeric. Remember not to use too much turmeric. I drink half teaspoon in the mornings and sometimes in the evenings too. Remember to give it some time to work. :)
