I believe if taking immunosuppressants then we are vulnerable due to compromised immune system. I would stay away from immunosuppressants including biologics and try to treat flares naturally.

I am very nervous. My son and I are both on Biologics.

Me too joy ... think psoriatic arthritis more likely to have heart complications too but best to just self isolate as much as you can look after yourself boost your immune system with vit c etc xxx stay well good luck !

I think the stress which surrounds all of us at this difficult time definitely worsens our skin condition. I’ve noticed my skin suffering because of the constant anxiety but with the better weather coming it’ll get better in the sun. Interesting how the sun kills the Coronavirus.

Stress stress and more stress. Especially if u are on biologic
