...feeling okay Aimee @aimz

Relationships, friends & family

Do you have family members with psoriasis? I’ve had psoriasis for over 15 years and no one else in my family has it until I found out last week that my dad’s cousins have it. I feel like it’s strange because we’re so far removed in the family tree.

I think in my case no one has it, but some family members do, regardless we have it

Yes I’m 43 I’ve had it 20+ years. My brother is 40 and had it since he was 2. Our dad had it but to a much lesser extent. Our half sister (same dad) has mild p. My dads aunt apparently had it on her knees. Definitely a genetic link in our case although brother and I most affected.

Hi Aimee,
My father had it very mildly on his scalp. but it never bothered him unless he changed shampoos or washed his hair too often!!

Dan @thepsoriasisjourney

Yes, my grandma does. It's one of those things that you just have to live with and not blame them I guess

Hi there Aimee. Yes, I had two uncles whom had it but not severe and then all of a sudden it went into remission until they passed on.
My brother and sister has got P on their elbows only but not severe. It comes and goes all the time. I have P now for 27 years and I'm the only one whom had it severe. My P went into remission for about 10 years but due to emotional stress it came back. I was 90% covered at the time but thankfully only 5% on my legs now. P can skip a generation or two, maybe more for all we know and it doesn't matter how far you off from the family tree. You still have the same blood :)

john,Hulk @chewbacca

Maybe i need a transfusion to new blood and get rid of my bad blood Michelle? think that will work? :)
