Psoriatic Arthritis And Biologics

Psoriatic Arthritis And Biologics

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.

Tremfya And Cold Sores (herpes)

Tremfya And Cold Sores (herpes)

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.

Does Anyone Experience PA In Toes And Feet?

Does Anyone Experience PA In Toes And Feet?

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?

Thanks/Scott

Pea Size Dots Appearing.

Hi. Thanks for joining me. I have grown up with psoriasis and since been in my early 20's managed with it. But due to covid 19 and not going on 3 usual holidays in the Caribbean a year, I haven't had no sun. Now I have pea soze dots appearing over my legs and a few on my arms.
What should I do please?.

Golden Milk?

Golden Milk?

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.

You are so right. What may work for someone may not for someone else. It may be a soothing treat drink and that in itself is a good thing.

Hey Terril, I can’t say I have ever heard of that, so I can’t be of much help.

Psoriasis In Month And On Bottom Lips

Psoriasis In Month And On Bottom Lips

I have had psoriasis for 33 years. Started on the tops around both my ears and spread to my scalp and inside my ears. It has shown up on varies parts of my body, but the mainstay of the psoriasis is on my scalp ears, and some nails. 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.
