Psoriasis is what is on the outside.

Stress less...and try to pay attention to things that may cause flares.
Keep a diary to see is there are cyclic patterns...or foods etc that are common to flares.

Psoriasis is a condition I have, it does not define me nor it controls me. You learn to live with it and keep going. Even though it is a very ugly and sometimes painful condition, I am not focus on it 24/7.
Life is much more than my psoriasis.

Act immediately, don't let it get out of hand. Learn as much as possible about the disease, talk to other P sufferers. And most importantly it affects everyone differently although the symptoms are the same, there are more than one type of P. Don't be discouraged - there are ways to fight it. You are still beautiful.

One thing after reading some comments I really want to stress... I have had Psoriasis for over 30 years. But even though I repeatedly visited gp's. ..yes various as I moved locations...it was never thought to be savvy to refer me to a specialist. Ir was not until I asked forva referal for what I thought was stubborn nail fungus that I was told I had Psoriasis.
I am a hairdresser by trade...my ongoing scalp flares I thought were dandruff.
PLEASE if you think anything is not right... request/DEMAND if need be a referal.... for any health issues.
I have scarred elbows, from years of being told to use heel balm from chemist... I cannot believe gp's thought it was normal dryness...acceptable in their eyes. It was scaling so badly it bled.
