I was on it for about 8 months - started noticing my hair falling out too. I also have scalp psoriasis so I wasn’t sure if it was that but I am changing medication just in case.

Does Anyone Know Any Topicals That Work?

Does Anyone Know Any Topicals That Work?

All the ones I've tried are greasy smell horrible and dont work. The shots are great but lower my immune system too much.

I only have had it in the base of my scalp. I use T-tell shampoo out coconut oil. If my back hurts, I use Salonpas with lidocaine or Biofreeze!

Does Anyone Use A Brush On Their Face/neck - Dry For Massaging/exfoliating Or Wet For Cleansing?

Does Anyone Use A Brush On Their Face/neck - Dry For Massaging/exfoliating Or Wet For Cleansing?

I've started dry brushing the skin on my body with a natural bristle brush and know lots of people who use face brushing as part of their normal daily skin care routine but I've never actually tried it myself and think it's about time I started taking better care of the skin on my face. I was always afraid to do anything that might aggravate the psoriasis, but I don't feel like it would do that now. I feel like my face needs a really good brush or massage! Any recommendations welcomed.

What Biologics Have Helped Your ARTHRITIS. Not Skin, Just Arthritis. And What Other Drugs Besides Biologics.

I have been to many Rhuemy's. I am aware of ALL the drugs out there. What I am looking for is PERSONAL EXPERIENCE with a particular drug that has helped your ARTHRITIS.
I would like to know what drugs help alleviate the arthritis only, not the skin. And not opioids for pain. Not interested in pain killers. But something that helps the SWELLING and limited mobility. THANK YOU for sharing your experience.
