...feeling insecure Dionna @dionna

Looks, coping

Good news! I’m starting work next Monday as a Junior Supervisor! I’m excited yet concerned. Last year my P just got more worse. I used to not bother covering my hand but now I’m just insecure all the time.

Thats great news Dionna, Just talk about it, say my hands have psoriasis, When one looks scared insecure , people may see that as weak, i been there,I know it takes time to build confidence, it took me years ,If i could do it, maybe you can too?, look confident is the key and people respect that ,I know its not easy, i know that :)

Dionna @dionna

Yeah it’s hard with being confident regarding P. Sometimes I do ignore it but the feeling that I get is “oh people are looking”

Congrats on the new job! I also have psoriasis on my hands and if someone asks what’s going on with your hands, I tell them! I always use bandaids when they flare up so that’s when someone would ask. You should look into CBD oil. My hands have clear since New Years! I wish I could post before and after pics!

Dionna @dionna

Hey Denyse! Thank you so much! Unfortunately CBD oil is illegal in my country 🤷🏽‍♀️ Hemp seed oil or any products related to hemp is illegal 😞 there are tar based shampoo for scalp P and natural based creams for the rest. ACV is also available but yeah there isn’t much choice here

There is one tablet Oncotrex 5 mg, you can try that after consulting with your doctor. My flakes are gone for now.

Good news Rahul :) Trouble is you stop these eventually then its always going to come back, I am on Well man + at the moment, a vitabiotic, i am hoping for improvements in time, got slight fade in places so who knows, I wish you well :)
