Does anyone with guttate psoriasis got their Covid vaccine? I spoke to my doctor, who says that there is a possibility that this vaccine can trigger the flare up. He says the choice is mine to take the vaccine.

I am newly diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. I am still at the point of deciding which medicine to try first. Which of course will have a lot to do with insurance.

This has been diagnosed from an x-ray only and because I have psoriasis (am on cyclosporin) I think the Docor is just diagnosing that as it's just easy to say that
Back pain for over 4 months... I'm a regular at the gym (3-5 times a week)
The pain is constant and doesn't ease.
I've had physio which didn't help (acupuncture/tens machine/ massage/ ultra sound/exercises etc) nothing has helped.
I was also offered pain killers which to be honest is just an easy fix .
