Secrets, treatment, healthcare system

It’s been one year since I started on biologics and I remain completely psoriasis free. The hoops I had to jump through to get here though! Worth it in the end. To all of you who are suffering with Psoriasis, consider biologics, it’s changed my life.

Great news Drum :) , How long can you stay on these ? I personaly i wouldnt take them but i understand that some would if things are bad of course, I couldnt take them anyway with the environment i work in as i am surrounded by sick people. I dont need these as i dont get it bad enough, yes i would like to be clear of course as its a nuisance but with being a lifer, i know no different . Great news Drum :)

I have a question doesn’t biologics affect the fetus in case someone wanted to get pregnant??

Four years, I believe, but don’t quote me.

Re: risk during pregnancy, yes I believe there is a risk that it will affect neonatal immunity.

My major concern was family history of non-Hodgkins lymphoma. My psoriasis was really affecting my quality of life though. I am so happy with the results achieved. 16 years of suffering ended, just 4 days after treatment.

Same here. Have lived with the misery for 60 yrs and finally am close to all clear thanks to biologics and lots of money.

Hi, I have seen many people mention biologics what is this?

I’m a layman not a medical practitioner, don’t take this as anything other than my interpretation, but I believe they’re injectable antibodies that bind to, and neutralise certain proteins produced by our bodies. The biologic I’m taking binds to a protein which, in high levels, is associated with chronic inflammatory diseases like psoriasis.
