Does any one else here suffer from Koebner Phenomenon?

Koebner phenomenon, a reaction that causes new psoriasis plaques to form wherever you experience a skin infection or injury.
Whenever I cut myself, get an ingrown hair, fall down an get a scrape, get a pimple, etc, it will sometimes turn into a new plaque psoriasis spot.

While not confirmed by my doctors, I'm sure I am. I have a lot of P in rare places (like my mouth). I get the impression that my P really responds to repeated pressure (for example, I put most of my weight on my left foot... my right foot is barely effected and I think that's why... I've recently been trying to stand more on my right foot and it's been more flakey, but it did seem to reduce the effect on the left foot, which is what I was going for because it was getting bad again) and maybe repeated microtrauma (like friction). But not major trauma for whatever reason (I don't get it over surgery scars).
It's literally the only way I can logically explain why it's effecting me the way it is.

Honestly think it's my genes. My father's involvement is atypical as well.

I find that it is very difficult to get a foot-hold on the psoriasis with this condition, as avoiding bumps, bruises and accidents on a daily basis is a near to impossible feat. It seems that every time I turn around, I have a new psoriasis spot. I have not known anyone who has had this condition until now. It is nice to know that I am not alone.

I'm fairly certain I do because my psoriasis is in some unusual places - all of which are areas of repeated pressure (which is the type I think my PsO likes the most) or trauma (I get rashes where my lip and nose where pierced - tongue too). My left foot is worse too, which is the one I tend to put my weight on.
I also get the blisters around scars too. Not very often though.
