Skin Thinning

Skin Thinning

New to the group and wondering if anyone has experienced real thinning of the skin from years of steroid based creams. I'm actually at the stage when carrying out general house chores, taking clothes of, if any amount of pressure is placed on my lower arms I get instant blood bruising. My fear is I'll have a right sore arm one of these days. Pic for info this was me cleaning my kitchen and brushed off the bin coming back up ☹ currently waiting on derm assessment.

Hot Tub Flare Up

Hot Tub Flare Up

Hello, my partner has psoriasis all over his body. We got a new hot tub in April and when he uses it his psoriasis flares up bad. Obviously, it’s due to the chemicals in the water.

Get a salt system. They’re usually in pools but you can get a converter for the hot tub. No chemicals, just add salt to the water and the filter changes it to hypochlorus acid. It’s amazing, and… read more
