I couldn't get rid of my scalp plaques and scales until I used Taclonex, and eventually Humira, which was the best result.

Humira & Libido

Humira & Libido

I've been on Humira for 2+ years now. I can't believe how wonderful it works! I lived with severe plaque psoriasis for 35 years. Finding Humira has been nothing short of a miracle to me. I'm practically 100% free!
My dilemma is I strongly believe that Humira has significantly decreased my Libido to the point where having relations rarely if ever enter my mind anymore. I've consulted my doctors and pharmacist they assured me that Humira does not affect my libido. I've undergone blood test,… read more

Does Anyone Have Recommendations For Really Bad Finger Nail Psoriasis?!

Does Anyone Have Recommendations For Really Bad Finger Nail Psoriasis?!

Hi everyone, I have been diagnosed as having Nail Psoriasis. I was getting steroid injections in my affected fingers plus steroid cream, but the only difference I found was they hurt less but it didn’t help them get any better.
I’ve tried tea tree oil and am now only using vicks at night when has been the best thus far in that they’re never dry anymore and the nail seems to be a bit more stable.
If anything else has worked for anyone I’d love… read more

Numbness

Numbness

Hi I’m new here and just recently got diagnosed with PsA. Is it normal to have limbs go numb and fall asleep a lot with PsA? It just seems like my hands and legs are always going numb at night even with my new meds.

Anyone Else Here Have Follicular Psoriasis?

Anyone Else Here Have Follicular Psoriasis?

I am recently diagnosed with this variant, and now have a million questions about all of it, but of course didn't think of most of them until after I left the doctor's office! Frustratingly, online searches have produced very little relevant info on the Folicular variant. Not even here, I don't really know if it is much / if any different than psoriasis vulgaris (the one most people know of).

Is it harder to treat? Are the treatments different than for "regular"… read more
