I got some new spots from stress. behind my scalp, side of my face, and on my legs. Due to stress. WHAT do you do to take stress of yourself.?

Hi Michelle,
My biggest bugbear of late is trigeminal neuralgia. Does anyone else experience it?
My physio is good and provides acupuncture which seems to keep it at bay. The only downside from it is that I develop psoriasis wherever the needles have been- primarily on my face!!

Hi Julia: Ive read on trigeminal neuralgia, Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain condition that affects the trigeminal nerve, which carries sensation from your face to your brain. If you have trigeminal neuralgia, even mild stimulation of your face — such as from brushing your teeth or putting on makeup — may trigger a jolt of excruciating pain.

Hi All … Ive been good …. just starting to feel the effects of not taking my psoriasis meds.... my scalp is painful to touch & the itch is back .. its so hard to scratch because of the pain which is a good thing … I am back to oiling my hair constantly again... I will see how long I can endure before I go back on the meds... I chose to go off them because of COVID as the meds damage your immune system & I need that working 100% during this trying & fearful time in our lives... I take immune boosters as well ….. I will persevere for as long as I can …. keep well & stay safe everyone....

Hey Michelle, how are you? Im not on here as much anymore due to work and home life lol. My psoriasis came back on my legs and has been growing for about a year now(luckily not on my whole body like last time) but with the weather getting warmer i dread it as i cant get my legs out. I must have tons of different moisturisers though😂 xx

Started a new bio T at the start of covid, and am almost cleared. Not like I can go away on holiday to show it off but can wear short sleeve shirts :) Stay positive!
