Did you know that *psora* is Greek for 'itch' and *iasis* is Greek for 'action, condition'?

Currently on day 8 of a 14 day break to the Dead Sea. 30-35 degrees and it is really starting to work now. Met many people from across the world with varying severity with great ideas to help. Highly recommend coming!! 😁 just hope it lasts now!!

What factor SPF are people using on psoriatic skin when in the sunshine? Want to get the goodness of a bit of sunshine but also protect my skin. At the mo I'm on SPF 30...

Got home from Vanuatu yesterday. Update on the fly bites. One has gone black and the skin is peeling around it. Not ideal. The sun and sea helped some of my P spots but not others which is weird. Not the sort of memory I wanted to bring home.

What is psoriasis?

My family can finally sympathise with skin disorders! Mum and husband = mosquito bites, Dad = jellyfish sting. Red & itching. I sympathise with them massively! Which is worse, the redness or the itch?

Trying this out because I recently moved to the US where my psoriasis is coming back due to weather changes/college stress. What cream would yo recommend? I am using Dermarest. Also, any weather advice? I know in winter psoriasis might get worse.

Our holiday ends tomorrow 🙁 The flies have decided I taste nice. Unfortunately they feasted in some open spots and they have become very infected. I got some antibiotic cream from the chemist, they are looking a bit better today and not so sore.

Packing for a holiday, how much of the suitcase do I dedicate to moisturisers?! Or should I say how many suitcases?!

Swimming. Yay or neigh?
In regards to swimming, I hadn't gone until May this year, for about 6 years. And since May, I haven't gone since. Not just because of how raw the skin gets, but because it's hideous to look at too.

I've had psoriasis for going on 40 years now. It has never completely went away. It's worse now than ever. I'm feedup, frustrated, ready to scream.

Our our tropical island holiday exposing my spotty arms and legs. There have been some stares, but no comments as yet. Salt water and sunshine is making me feel better, not sure if it doing much for my spots though.

I am on a 15-day vacation to try mineral waters of Soap Lake, Washington. No great improvement but skin is softer, minor flaking; redness and discoloration persists. Should've come earlier in summer when the lake is warmer and sunlight is abundant.

5 sleeps. No miracle has happened here so I will be showing off my spotty arms and legs for the first time. Mother Nature tried to destroy our holiday with an earthquake, tsunami warning and an erupting volcano so we changed our destination.
