Hello, are dry, itchy eyes another side effect of psoriasis? Does anyone else have this same issue and if so, what do you use to relieve it?

Hello Diane. I used toget it so bad that eye drops couldnt touch it Trying to cry natural tears was better hthan anything ,I still get slight dry eyes from time to time and just make my eyes water with my own natural tears by squinting .I had this problem the same time my arthritis abrupted years ago and yes its linked to Psoriasis, it was hell for me . Steer clear of too much radiator heat if you use them as they can cause too much dryness in the eyes. Thanks

This happens to me when I am tired and from central heating. I have never been sure if this is from psoriasis or not, but occasionally I find a patch just under one of my eyes. I find that it is worse when I am tired and with central heating so it could just be those factors without the psoriasis... Hydration is my only solution. Drink plenty of water and use a really good face cream. For the patches on my face I apply daivobet gel at night, it doesn't make it go away, but it is manageable.

I have glaucoma and do drops twice a day so I don't know what to blame the dry itchy eyes on. Whatever P or not it is all a pain and a nuisance and a constant and costly burden. Wish the world understood P a little better but how can you if you have not experienced it.

An old mom's recipe is to use a warm tea bay for eye relief I use this still today regular black or orange tea

I love animals, traveling, my children and my grandchildren. My psoriasis is an inconvenience, it doesn't define me or stop me living my life how I want. Live, laugh, love :)
