Of those who have gotten the shot how did you feel? First/second dose? Any physical reactions to your psoriasis?

I had a AZ shot 1st, about 4 weeks ago, I'm currently taking Methotrexate, spent a week in bed post the injection and another two weeks feeling flat.
Back to "normal" now....

In 71 years I never had any skin issues until 3 months after my second Pfizer shot. Co-incidence??? Dermatologist says probably not do to the shots. Now taking methotrexate for about a month. seems to be helping. Flair ups and itching are getting less. Worse summer of my life. Hoping for the best.

@A MyPsoriasisTeam Member: for me the first three days were really uncomfortable but within the week I noticed that my flare up had calmed down. I just went in for my second shot this morning. Keeping track of how I feel so far nothing out of the ordinary. I have been doing my regular skin care stuff for my psoriasis. I used ceraVe for lotion. I also use argon oil straight from the bottle and also add it to my ceraVe. I exfoliate my spots when I’m in the shower and use the lotion the oil when I get out. I’m not on any medication for psoriasis.
I hope your skin calms down for you sooner than later.

@A MyPsoriasisTeam Member when my skin gets really bad I’ll use a&d ointment and argon oil. Then wrap it in cotton gauze and then wrap that with self sticking bandage wrap. I think the pressure from the wrap takes away some of the itch cause it won’t get itchy until I take it off.
