I have a few small spots on my knuckles now Chris, but they are not red. Goes blue of course due to the cold weather but on weekends they are skin color. They are the first to disappear when it gets to Spring so I'm not really bothered with them. The coal tar helps preventing them to spread but I still look out for them. As long as they stay babies, then I'm happy :)

I do have that Chris but not on my knuckles. It is in other places where the p has cleared. And appeared in other places to varying degrees!

Not on my knuckles but on my shins. Those spots later healed up. Skin is still really thin though (due to cortisone use years ago)

Ruben, many moons ago when I was on cortisone, my skin was so thin and I was always bleeding. When I stopped using it, I started sitting in the sun whenever I could. I don't have a problem with thin skin anymore and one thing is for sure, I won't use cortisone again. It helped for a while but my P got worse when I stopped using it.

Hey Michelle, my first spots on my legs (where I used the most cortisone) still have very thin skin. Sun is an issue in Belgium. We have some weeks of great weather now, but mostly not..
Those spots are gone, but not by cortisone use!
Cortisone doesn't tackle the cause, just the result of P

True Ruben. Do you have a AV lamp?
20 Jul 11:05
Nope... But as I have my P quite under control right now I won't buy one

That's great to hear Ruben. I'm privileged to have sun 365 days a year and will never take that for granted. The sun is also the reason why my P isn't severe. Apart from my diet of course :)
