Itch, treatment, diet

Anyone else have to stop taking a biologic because it was weakening their already weak immune system to much?

I had to stop having a biological injection treatment when I was diagnosed with a cancerous tumour.
I’m not saying that the treatment had any part in the cancer - and I was previously on a long course of cyclosporin which could just as easily have contributed to it - but having cancer and the resulting surgery and chemo precludes any possibility of having an immunosuppressant for at least 5 years.

Alex here in Australia, in order to qualify for biologics on pharmaceutical benefit scheme, they force you to take cyclosporin. I have a genetic predisposition towards non-Hodgkins lymphoma! Also my grandfather passed away a few months ago from non-Hodgkins lymphoma. I took cyclosporin for 30 days and it made zero difference to my psoriasis, I fear what it may have done to my body during that time.

Nonetheless, I’ve been on biologics for a year now and my psoriasis is gone. It’s changed my life.
