Are We At Higher Risk For Virus Or Injection Side Effects Due To Psoriasis?

Are We At Higher Risk For Virus Or Injection Side Effects Due To Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease so our resistance to viruses is lower. You can use vitamins to help with it.

How Do You Cope With People Accidentally Telling You That They Are Scared You Are Going To Give Them Some Horrible Disease

How Do You Cope With People Accidentally Telling You That They Are Scared You Are Going To Give Them Some Horrible Disease

My friend has some sort of new dermatitis near her eye. We use same dermatologist. She went to find out what was wrong. Specifically asked if she had what I had. In fear. Dr. did not break HIPPA. Said she didn't know what she was talking about. I know she told me out of a place to show how good of a poker face the Dr has. But, she revealed she was scared of what I have at the same time. Made me self conscious as I reflected.

I Was Just Diagnosed With Nail Psoriasis (1 Nail) Although I Don’t Seem To Have Any Other Visible Symptoms.

I am a little skeptical of my diagnosis but I am following doctor’s treatment. Has anybody’s psoriasis started like this?

My dermatologist has ruled out fungal, so now I'm trying Daivobet and then Daivonex.

Any Relief For Patches On/around Eye/eyelid Area?

Any Relief For Patches On/around Eye/eyelid Area?

Does anyone struggle with patches on their eyelids? It’s really just popped up in the past few months. Inner Corner of my left eye gets really scaled up as well. There isn’t anything that seems to give lasting relief. I’m currently taking 150mg of Cosentyx every 4 weeks. I’ve tried using Pomifera oil on it (which has helped some of my other patches) but it doesn’t seem to really help my eyelids.

I used cold press coconut oil. It helps with itching and scabing. It doesn't fix it, but brings some relief for me. Dairy is my nemesis for pso on my face.

Anyone Else Struggling With The Dual Diagnosis Of Guttate Psoriasis/inverse Psoriasis/PSA And Rosacea/ocular Rosacea?

Anyone Else Struggling With The Dual Diagnosis Of Guttate Psoriasis/inverse Psoriasis/PSA And Rosacea/ocular Rosacea?

The PSA/guttate psoriasis/inverse psoriasis all but disappear when my ocular rosacea/rosacea(severe) flares and vice versa. I’m never without one or the other. The ocular rosacea is treated with steroid drops, minocycline and lubricating drops every hour then as resolving extends to every 6 hours. I have liver disease and cannot take the typical psoriasis drugs or and aspirin/NSAIDS so I use topicals for pain and topical steroids. Light therapy is risky for me since I’m also a malignant melanoma… read more

Has Anyone Ever Developed PsA Flare On Their Lips And Above?

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

I was just diagnosed with psoriasis (nail) but now I wonder if when I had a horrible flare on my mouth a couple of months ago, which was told to be dermatitis, wasn’t, in fact, psoriasis. 🤔

Psoriasis With Liver Disease

Psoriasis With Liver Disease

I have just found out that I have liver disease but haven't found out yet the extent of damage to my liver. (It is bad enough it has caused portal gastropathy in my stomach.) I will find out more when I go back to gastroenterologist in August. I had to stop the cream I was using for psoriasis. I looked it up and it said do not use with liver disease. Does anyone else have liver disease and what do you use or do to control your psoriasis?

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

I refused all of the Biologic Medications for that reason as well as it can cause Cancer because of it lowering your immune system. I tried the Phototherapy many years ago, but the pill you have to… read more

Clinque Foundation

Clinque Foundation

I have always used Clinique foundation on my face but over the past 6 months it is causing me to have outbreaks of psoriasis on my face. Can someone recommend a foundation for people with psoriasis?, I have always been fortunate that although about 70% of my body has psoriasis I have never had a reaction to anything until now on my face. I need to wear foundation for work.

I just started using IL MAKIAGE, seems to work well and blend in smoothly.
