Does Any One Else Here Suffer From Koebner Phenomenon?

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.

Yes, specially when you have to do blood tests. Every pinch is a new lesion.

Every time I cut myself or get a zit on my face it's always turning into psoriasis. This is the absolute worst I've ever had it

My pup has destroyed my right arm. I had no idea why my bug bites and bruises and cuts would never heal like other people. Now I know but it's to late for my arm.

This also explains my patches all pimples friction spots etc all turn flakey into Psoriasis. I have found Boi Oil helps if I get to it before it turns flakey but not always.

I have a habit of tucking one of my feet under my left when I sit down. And from the pressure of my body on my leg, my inside ankle or the back part of my lower leg gets really itchy and then I get blisters. It burns, tingles and is painful. It has been happening for around 16 years. I wish I knew for sure what was causing it. My dermatologist tried testing the fluid from one of the blisters once and she couldn't get enough to determine what it was.
