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.

Thank you for the hugs and kind words.

It would really be nice to know what triggered this flare for me.
Sorry to hear that you suffer a lot. Indeed the stress increases both the psoriasis flare-ups as well as its intensity. Though it is difficult, please try not to think about it as far as possible. Even I am having it on my scalp, ears, eye lids, under the nose and some times on fore head. I use 1 % Hydrocortisone ointment or cream on the patches on my face. It helps and make sure you keep your skin hydrated all the time.
Wish you all the best and a speedy recovery!!!
Oh that sounds very painful. Ive had it in my mouth and nose very unpleasant. Are you on any antihistamines? They help a little. The biological drugs seem to be the only thing that works. I have other autoimmune disorders but my son paid for a years supply but although my skin cleared up completely i have liver failure and I had to stop them. I have 6 months treatment of stelara injections ? I hope you are getting relief xox
