How hopeful are you that your psoriasis will improve in the future, through medication or natural approaches?

11 Sep 08:36

11 Sep 08:39

Lost hope of finding a cure
11 Sep 09:58
Science has come along way in 50 yrs,,,,and Im sure they will also find a cure for ,"P" maybe not in my time but??? Who knows.
11 Sep 11:58
I am 100% positive with the correct medication as it has happened to me.
11 Sep 12:21
Hello Christine , i lost hope over 35 years ago for a cure,, There is hope to make it better though, Yes i think there will be a cure at some point but not in my life time as Lorna has just said about hers ,
11 Sep 12:39
I sure hope something good will come from the trials they are currently doing, as long as the researchers never stop looking for a cure or new medicines. Not to sound fatalistic but what does it help to worry about the future, anything can happen so best is to stay positive, watch our diets and stress levels and take each day as it comes. The future is not guaranteed anyway.

My Psoriasis is hereditary - it will never completely vanish.
But to calm it down, I use coconut oil!
11 Sep 14:38
I have hope reading about methods that have helped others, it has really helped me adjust to getting this after 69 years of no sign of it.
11 Sep 15:37
I'm most optimistic about personalized medicine - one day they will run my genome and know which treatment to use. Today they are working on these therapies for more serious diseases like cancer, but someday they'll get around to P and PsA...
11 Sep 16:14
I am going to a Chinese medicine doctor who gave me acupuncture , cupping therapy and bleeding therapy and also herbs to take each day after ten days my psoriasis is very much improved . From being horrendous ten days ago it is so so much better , thank God !
11 Sep 17:18
Cream from doctors doesn't help much
11 Sep 17:50
Just finished 6 months of phototherapy including taking acitretion tablets daily thankfully all psoriasis fully cleared after 20 years
11 Sep 18:14
Thats good news Dave , fully cleared, must feel great :)
11 Sep 18:44
Yeah it feels like a weight off my shoulders. Great to be able to wear t shirts and shorts again. Still taking medication and using creams to prevent psoriasis reappearing.
11 Sep 19:04
Not to hopeful it seemed to be a bit better when we had the hot days but now that the weather is cooler the itch is back
11 Sep 19:19
I do not like p at all. But I have to accept that I have a genetic, incurable, unpredictable piece of rubbish. I wish there was something I could do that would give me a certain and durable outcome, but there isn't. Now live on.
11 Sep 20:44
Yes it sure can be discouraging, but trying some of the methods that have helped other people gain some control
Let’s me know I am not alone, there are ways that work.
11 Sep 21:44
Quite positive. and it may be both medication and natural. Cheers to all.
12 Sep 00:26
After years of meds and creams Lemon 🍋 gave me hope that this is beatable
12 Sep 04:00
I wake up with hope every day I am now on antibiotics for a infection on my lower legs doing the best I can.
12 Sep 04:38
Hi Flaym. I try to keep it as natural as possible. The lifestyle changes has done it for me and I can manage my P. I do get extra spots but they usually disappear quick.
12 Sep 12:46
Had a bad day yesterday went for a Vein study for lower limbs as Lymphedema has attacked my legs could not walk or get on to the table my Arthritis also kicked in maybe the antibiotics are having an effect on me or Tramadol for pain at this point cannot think straight. Better days tomorrow
12 Sep 18:25
I want to say I am very hopeful, but I am more hopeful of keeping it manageable than "getting rid" of it
13 Sep 12:41
5 months, no red meat, dairy, caffeine, peppers. Very little sugar, more veggies. My skin is calm, the P is very, very slowly healing. I have spots almost everywhere. More on thighs, arms & backside. I'm now using a high strength vit e oil & a home uvb device. I've had P for 11 yrs, since age 49, have tried several drugs & nothing worked. Drugs are risky & can bring on other health issues. This different way of eating has made a very positive change to my skin. I miss all those foods, but it's worth the sacrifice. You have to stay positive & stay energized - life is still enjoyable, even w/a rash!! Sending love & energy to all my fellow P people!!

So true Angela,glad you are improving, Hope people here take note of your comment thank you :)
13 Sep 19:17
Thank you for sharing that Angela, there is hope for me!
13 Sep 19:38
so happy for your healing Angela. I was told there is a treatment with laser UVB light for this condition. Has anyone ever done this and does it help?
14 Sep 17:50
Definitely natural approaches! It's already working for me..I became vegetarian a year ago, then decided to cut out dairy as well (which I did 4months ago) My P improved so much! I make sure that I take iron & vitamin D supplements
