I have Ace, but I never put the two together, it may very well be connected. Dry skin, dry eyes, maybe?

Oh yes Ace. Very dry and sometimes very itchy eyes. Anti histamines seem to remedy the itching and daily eyedrops for the dryness.

Get watery eyes very irritating at times,just thought it was the Vaseline I put on eyelids when scales appear,not sure what dry eyes mean?

It can be a problem with the immune system Sue, can affect tissues in the body like tear duks etc,can cause dryness in the mouth with problems with the saliva glands also, psoriasis can cause a lot of other problems not just the skin problems,why diet/lifestyle changes is important and drinking plenty of filtered or bottled water a day can reduce these harsh symptoms thanks :)

Yep, diet/lifestyle is essential. I think my psoriatic arthritis started because of me drinking a lot? that caused all other lots of inflammation elsewhere, dry eyes and severe,can rip the top skin on eyes off,dry mouth, nasty ,Once you get these things,you are stuck with it, good news you can make it better but, one has to be sensible to keep on top of it.

I never put it together either. I get dry mouth and I always thought it was because of all the Meds I'm on for blood pressure, cholesterol, bladder etc.

This is very interesting. I don't have dry eyes (yet) nor mouth so I hope my immune system is great!?? Dry eyes, mouth...what about the nose??
