My psoriasis has been fairly mild, mostly scalp and around my ears, and a couple of spots on my elbows. I've never had a regular doctor for it and haven't ever been on medication because I move around a lot (currently living in Oman!) and it hasn't been that bad. But in the last few days I've noticed dry spots on both my eyelids that I suspect might be turning into psoriasis. Is there any way to stop them before they… read more
I stayed off gluten but it seems to be in every food you buy... it is hard to find anything without it. Soups etc., I find Gluten free breads awful, tasteless.

I was terrified when I got it on my eyebrows and on the middle of both eyelids... I live alone and hadnot seen the Dermatologist or Rheumie at this stage. I just kept putting cream on it... it has gone away [for now ] . I don't think antibiotics are the answer.... My G.P. told me It was NOT psoriasis, it WAS, surely I should know psoriasis when I have it in other places, [nether regions ] and tips of elbows, extremely bad plaques on scalp making it impossible to colour my hair, and thinning it out. ~ If you are run down on antibiotics, make sure to take the probiotics after you finish the antibiotics and along with that.. keep on them. Are you on a Biologic? Doctors differ, and there is nothing wrong with getting a second opinion, your eyes, your psoriasis and your life.
I went to see one of the best Rheumatologists here in my city, he is not sure if I have psoriatic arthritis. Even though I have all the smptoms..!! So he is getting a 2nd opinion, and also has ruled out R.A. with XRays but doing more tests... I have bad pitting in finger nails... so Doctors arenot Gods.
I am lucky my daughter in law is a hairdresser. But she does have some of her clients shampoos that she uses when they come. She is very good and does all she can to reassure her clients if they are embarrassed,
