Well i dont know if this problem is linked to the auto immune, been over 6 mnths, I was 4 months on anti biotics of many kinds and my skin went potty, my problem did subside a little over that time but my skin and itch went nuts, I left antibiotics for 2 months and now use what i have left, I go to urology in last of april but i am not going to be too hopeful of anything as this problem can be stuck with one , I think they will try throw more antibiotics at me? i know this will cause more problems but i see how it goes ?I s this linked to P? that i do not know though a Doc in South Africa said could well be,If so, All i can do is try to manage another condition lol, few things that could cause this, Hurnia op 2 years ago? auto immune . prostate? drinking too much water maybe? too many to list, I dont give up . I see what they say at urology , it maybe a long haul lol,Yep i am itchy on these antibiotics but all i can do is try , I hope you all are well Thank you :)

Hi John, haven't heard from you or anyone on here for a while.
Good to hear you're still fighting, mine hasn't been too bad recently apart from a flare up of itching, driving me mad and the only answer I've got is to scratch ! Take care John till next time ;)

Thank you Rita, Well it could be worse. I manage to get a faster appointment and went into Urology on thursday,I t was all as i expected, nothing they can do , She saidi could have an operation but the risks are high me losing a part of my manhood, She said it can just ride out , Luckily for me i dont get swelling or in excrutiating pain just more discomfort and aches here and there in my leg, above my hip and in my epidermis, I think its better than it was say 5 months ago, I know healing can take months and months for this , I am clear of anything,nothing wrong lol ,Whether theres a connection with low immune to get this for me ,i dont know? Things could be worse i know, Doc said i already know so much about this as i done enough research, Grin and bare it but as i said i am not in bad pain so its something , Just getting old lol, I am taking Probiotics now so hope that helps, with eating healthy as usual and taking turmeric,curcumin, blackpepper pills to, helps with any inflamation , I gone off antibiotics as i think that dont help with the immune ,skin is sore looking raw so now hope to heal from all this in time, Thank you :)

It sounds as if you’re doing everything you can John. For sure some health problems just need time to heal. I too am taking turmeric with pepper, ginger, vitamin D3 in liquid, B12, calcium, ashwagandha, and sea kelp. I have no idea if it helps but I’m 61 and don’t take any prescription drugs which I understand is now a rarity so maybe all these supplements do help! Hope you feel better quickly!

Your same as me , I dont want do script meds, too many side effects etc, i use baby lotion , well childs farm moisturizer, now and again chinese steriod but only things get bad but not daily use because its a potent steriod, i dont like using steriods but it wont go then only thing that helps , Sounds like you are doing good stuff Rita, yes i do omega 3 , calcium when i remember, i was doing fennel, duretic ant inflammatory , koren ginseng, still got some left and saw palmetto but i think i was taking too many things, mainly for my newer problem, think turmeric help best for inflammation , Yep cant do anymore than i do , Thankyou :)

Wow just reading how many ways PA can affect people different ways. I have been on a certain medication (which I cant say apparantly) since 2014 and have had zero problems with the arthritis part and my Psoriasis flare ups are only a few red patches which I have under control with just some baby vaseline, no itching or scaling so I guess it just affects some people in different ways.
