Coping, treatment, healthcare system
Hey There! I am uninsured & have both Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis. I'm wondering if anyone else is trying to navigate Psoriatic Arthritis, which is currently flaring out of control, with no insurance.

To be honest most that I use is medication but you could research diet and herbal creams sorry not much help I hope it gets better.

For whatever medication you are on now, call directly to the manufacturer to see if they have a program set up that helps out. Good Luck.

Thank You!! My first Psoriasis Flare-up was really bad. And at the time I had no idea what it was. At first I thought it was ring worm lol But as the areas grew and the scales got worse, I finally gave in and left the Emergency Room with a diagnosis of Psoriasis & Psoriatic Arthritis. That was 2 years ago & I still haven't seen a Dermatologist or Reumatogist. I'm not on any prescription medicine at the moment.

Chris, What medications do you take if you don't mind my asking? I just use over the counter topicals & lots of CeraVe lotion to keep moisturized. The clinic I went to recently is getting me a referral to see a Rheumatologist. I don't want to waste time with ineffective treatment so I would love to hear yours & others experience with medications for Psoriasis/PsA! Also, let me know if you experienced any bad side effects! Thanks!

I am currently on methotrexate and I have not had any side effects although I do make sure I eat healthy and I gave up alcholhol. Outwith that I try to stay away from steroids and use loads of moisturizers and believe it or not baby oil helps

I have had psoriasis 50 years, been on several meds after flares. Always go back to washing with coal tar soap. T -gel shampoo and mg217 ointment. All over the counter, tar base products that keep me clear. Helps me with both expense and side effects from meds. Hope this helps.

I had psoriasis for over 20 years, but haven't had a sign of it in the past 5. I switched my everyday products to all natural products, including household cleaning products and laundry detergent. It made such a hug difference for my skin. But then needed to see the rheumatologist again because it had already gone into my joints, and now I am on taltz, methotrexate and celebrex for the psoriatic arthritis and other issues I have due to back surgeries.

Psoriatic arhritis is very rarely diagnosed illness. I have an impression that I know better and more about it than doctors whom I applied for. Some of doctors I`ve met in my life think it as specifically skin problem
