...feeling okay Diane @froghop26


How many of us are having a flare due to the stress of our current situation? I have had spots on my face for the first time. Stay safe and well where ever you are in the world.

I also have started to experience psoriasis on my face which has never happened before. They are much harder to get rid of too. Very frustrating!

Considering all the stress everyone is under, I’m surprised my psoriasis is not worse. It’s not amazing but since I’m still not able to sunbathe any time soon it’s to be expected. I’ve never had it on the face. That must not be fun. Can you sit in the sun a bit? Hope it goes away Diane and Linda.

I have too on my forehead and I'm applying lipbalm or some cream so that it won't dry and It's slowly fading which is good.

Had a flare up because I’m worried about taking my methotrexate injections in case it lowers the immune system so I have left it 4?weeks

Life is still near the same for me, still going to work as i am in the care system , just seems i only one in my street thats going to work, risks are higher for me to get this , whether my immune system will cope if i get it is something i wont know yet, if it happens, hopefully i go out of the world quick if things are bad, skin is still the same though i was ill last week for over a week and my skin did get worse a bit , i still went work as it not covid 19 symptoms and theres no one cover for me so i carried on,Keep safe too Diane and all here :)

I wish everyone would wear a mask for one month.

I had a visit with my dermatologist last week. He has changed my steroid cream, which I only use sparingly. Still on immune suppressants as I have some very stubborn spots which just don't get the hint and leave. My face has cleared a little thank goodness. Still working here, as an 'essential worker' but being as careful as I can. Take care everyone.

Hi Diane
I got a spot on my face too but I have changed face creams. I'm usually very careful of what I choose. This one has been here for some time and I agree, it does take longer to go away. why do my spots on legs disappear quicker than the one on my face? I'm not worried as it is not getting bigger. It looks more like a dark spot? I think its P. Stay safe too Diane and I wish you well?

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 :)
