Alternative Treatments?

Alternative Treatments?

I was on methtrexate for over a year and doing great until the side effects became so severe I started missing work. I had to change insurance and my doctor prescribed Otezla. After 2 starter packs, I was doing great again but my insurance won't cover it. Anyone have advice, maybe holistic until my insurance issues are cleared up? Topicals haven't worked for me in the past. My joints are getting very painful and my psoriasis has flared up horribly. Thanks!

Fasting?

Fasting?

Has anyone had any luck with intermittent fasting? I’ve been doing some research on it and it might be an option.

I’ve been fasting today. I think it’s harder at home because there’s food so close by! I’ve had a super productive day though.

Topical vitamin D helps keep my flaking down and is inexpensive! I don’t have any brand recommendations though.

Medications Stop Working?

Medications Stop Working?

Has anyone ever had multiple medications stop working for them? About 5 years ago I was managing with just topicals and light treatment. Then I got a bad case of strep and my plaques exploded and covered my whole body. I was itching in my sleep and leaving bloody patches on my sheets. I felt like Pig Pen from Charlie Brown. I went oh Humira and it cleared my skin up very quickly. I felt great and looked great. But after 8 months the plaques started to come back. I started with Otezla and… read more

How Do You Manage Ear Psoriasis?

How Do You Manage Ear Psoriasis?

I've been on 3 meds since being diagnosed, none of which have helped clear my skin. Now the plaques have started showing up in and around my ears. At one point I had an ENT diagnose me with a month-long psoriatic ear infection...total fun. I use Vaseline in the morning and tend not to reapply because some parts of my ear still seem moist. Sometimes I use coconut oil in the evening or right after a shower. The past 2 days I have used Aquaphor. I need OTC/homeopathic suggestions for… read more

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

Yes, Aquaphor is like Vaseline, it should be safe to use there!

Scalp Psoriasis Or Something Else?

Scalp Psoriasis Or Something Else?

I have had scalp problems for about 13 years and was previously diagnosed with psoriasis. It has now spread to cover more of my scalp where it was previously just the back of my head. If you have psoriasis on your scalp was it hard to be diagnosed? Is this what yours looks like? Do you have more symptoms than just the scalp issues (fatigue, joint pain, etc)? The area in the photo has appeared within the last few months but on the back of my head where it’s been feels more… read more

Typically I have heard the ridges on nails are just another psoriatic effect.
