Globetrotting with psoriasis.
07 Dec 00:00
I've just moved from a cold, dry, and wintery climate in Canada to a hot, oceanside, dry climate in Australia. I have NEVER had such a bad flare up on my scalp. Could this be due to swimming in salt water?

Going on holiday in Feburary .
To France then England .Somewhere called Folkston.
Any hints for what kund of clothing to take with me?
And if I can get moisture cream?
I dont think I can take enough to last me 3 weeks on a plane.

Now that my P has calmed down it isn’t a struggle/worry to sleep on white or light coloured sheets anymore! Spending time with my family at a ski resort and I am not worried about my skin cracking and bleeding on the hotel sheets. Small victories!

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

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.
Stuff worth talking about.
