Hi Gary. I also had psoriasis flare up for the first time at 47 and also had my Hep A&B vaccine but a few years later. What you should try and find out is if there is psoriasis in your family. I found out on my dads side there was psoriasis and because I went through some serious stress back then, thats when it physically broke out is scabs and thats when I found out I had it and its heredatary . One of my sisters has it but not the other and one of my cousins on my fathers side. Im pretty sure (Im not a doctor) its not the vaccine.

Hi Alexandros,

Thanks for reply. My mother and father both side do not have psoriasis. My father had lil eczema here and there but thats pretty much. Initially the patches were diagnosed as psoriasis by 3 dermatologists in Canada. I wanted them to do biopsy but none would agree. I did my biopsy with the help of my Brother in Law who is physician in India. Turned out to be Vasculitis. I stopped my diabetes medication and looks like Vasculitis has gone but now I got psoriasis for whole life.
Its possible that its hereditary. I think it was triggered by vaccine though.

my son who is just 1 yr old also get eczema patches after vaccination.

Wow I cant believe they wouldnt do a biopsy. I am also from Toronto but when I come to Greece for vacation its there where they discovered I had psioriasis. I find the medical system here superior to Canadas in the sense that they automatically checked for psoriasis. I know that there are many products that help with the scars but be careful and avoid the ones with cortizon. Good luck.

I was in Montreal then & healthcare really sucked there. Even the senior Dermatologists at Mcgill Uni Hospital also said biopsy is not needed. Later on when I showed them the biopsy report then they said they still have doubt on it since its from India and believe I could be having both vasculitis and psoriasis.

anyways now I am mostly using Dovobet and Diprosalic. I dont see other options yet.
Its 3 months and I still waiting for an appointment with dermatologist. It really sucks here so called free healthcare which is actually driven by taxpayers dollars.

Hi Gary, Although they say psoriasis is hereditary, I have never known anyone on either side of my family who have had it. Just lucky me! Be careful with the Dovobet. I used that for a few years and developed ostopaenia (the precursor to osteoporosis), only at the places I was applying the cream. For me the solution is the sun and during the winter light treatment helps. Good luck.

Hi Rita,
Thats right and why it waited all the way until I am 45? Most doctors did not study effects of vaccinations in the school and only thing they were told that it doesnt cause any harm. Dr. Lawrence Palevsky of NYU school of medicine says Unvaccinated Children Are the Healthiest Children I Have Ever Seen !!!

Yes I am aware of Dovobet and all other steroid creams, its impact on skin thinning as well as making bones weak. I am desperately waiting to get dermatologist and referral for UVB.

Thanks

Were you very stressed when you first got psoriasis Gary? Mine flares up when I’m stressed but I’m thankful it’s usually mild psoriasis. Better to have started at 45! I was a baby when I first got it, on my scalp, perhaps from the homemade baby formula I was given which consisted of powdered milk, water and corn syrup with a few vitamins thrown in.

yes I was stressed that time as I had lost my well paying job and was under intense pressure due to pending immigration status of my family.

Yes stress will bring it to the surface but only if its in your system. Mine flared up in my mid 40s when I went through some tremendous stress and of course has stayed with me up until now at 67. I also used Dovobet but I wanted to avoid steroids so I also now have oestopenia. I now just use moisturisers and vaseline to keep my scars moist.

That’ll do it. Hopefully life is easier for you and your family now and your skin will be happier.

I started with psoriasis at age 55, and no one else in the family had an autoimmune disease that we knew of. I can tell you that Hep B vaccine is an engineered vaccine — no Hep B virus in it. It’s made from yeast — no virus. I believe Hep A vaccine is as well. I am an RN, and your tendency to get autoimmune disease is usually inherited. You don’t necessarily get the same autoimmune disease as others in your family. It usually takes an illness and the genetic weakness together from what I’ve learned. So I agree with the doctors, and I don’t think it’s from the vaccine.
