I have psoriatic arthritis affecting large and small joints, neck, back, but without actual psoriasis patches. I have put off starting a biologic due to concern with black box warnings that they can possibly cause cancer due to decreased immune function. My father had RA and was on Orencia. He developed lung cancer and of course they stopped the Orencia. Thoughts? Anyone else have this concern? I am very stiff and sore and wondering if I should start them.
Has anyone one have psoriasis fall out of hair and onto your eyelids or face and feel like itchy biting bumps abd where every they fall they make a breakout point?
Does anyone have Hidradenitis Supprativa (I am told this a form Psoriasis)?
Has anyone using Tremfya had cold sores (herpes simplex) triggered? On the medication guides it says it’s a side effect. I just started Tremfya and Sure enough a few days later I got the wrist cold sore ever! I am curious if others have experienced the is too. I asked my doctor and she said it’s not a side effect even though on all the medication guide it clearly states it is.
I have had small patches of psoriasis for years. It was annoying, but not devastating. Beginning last May, I began having terrible pain in my toes and feet. Dr diagnosed psoriatic arthritis. It is the worst pain I have ever experienced. Can't walk. Can't sleep. Have been on methotrexate for 8 weeks. No relief. Has anyone experienced similar?

I hope I am not repeating a question someone may have asked. Has anyone tried the turmeric milk? I think it's called Golden Milk. I would think it's bitter. If you have, does it help some with inflammation and how do you sweeten or keep the bitter out? How much should I use? I don't drink much milk and mostly use almond when I do.
My hairdresser has tried 3 times to tone my hair (permanent color) but it washes out immediately.
Should I just bleach it or will that make my hair worse.
Scalp psoriasis mostly under control also taking biologic
I have had psoriasis for 33 years. Started on the tops around both my ears and spread to my scalp and inside my ears.

I have not taken any biologic, but have been on many many steroid creams and strengths depending on what part of the body I was treating.
