Looking For Psoriasis Friendly Hand Sanitizers

Looking For Psoriasis Friendly Hand Sanitizers

So I have pustular psoriasis on the palms of my hands and find that "normal" alcohol hand sanitizers cause flare ups. My new job requires me to use hand sanitizer frequently through out the day. I'm looking for any insight into "gentler" alcohol hand sanitizer or possibly non alcohol hand sanitizer that is still effective

Does Anyone With PsA Suffer From Sporadic/widespread Joint Pain?

Does Anyone With PsA Suffer From Sporadic/widespread Joint Pain?

I'm newly diagnosed but my arthritic pain is primarily in my lower back and hips. I have severe morning stiffness and sometime can hardly walk after sitting for a while. I also have sciatic pain down my right leg to my foot. These pains I've experienced everyday for the post 3 years. (Just started treatment yesterday with methotrexate) Now in occasion I seem to have sporadic pains in my hands and feet. There's never any swelling or redness they just hurt for no reason at all. Most recently I… read more

PsA Diagnostic Question

PsA Diagnostic Question

I am a bit concerned that the dermatologist i am currently seeing did not request any bloodwork or imaging to confirm my diagnosis of PsA. I'm sure I have plaque psoriasis in various areas that could be determined visually but if anyone else could share a story of how the determination of Psoriatic Arthritis was achieved i think it would calm me a bit. I guess if it was me attempting to diagnose i would be overly critical and request tests to increase my chance of a successful diagnosis and in… read more

Docs Missing Psoriatic Arthritis Because No Dactylitis?

Docs Missing Psoriatic Arthritis Because No Dactylitis?

I am wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis without any dactylitis? I have fought 'athletes foot' and toe nail issues for years. Fungus never showed up in cultures. Recently had a rash on that foot and saw a dermatologist who told me I was not dealing with athletes foot but with Psoriasis. When I told her I have had sore joints recently she suggested PSA could be a concern. Two Rheums said they don't think so because I don't have swollen tender joints. However, I… read more

Finding A Way To Combat Skin Picking Disorder (Dermotillomania), When You Have Plaque Psoriasis And Scalp Psoriasis. Any Ideas?

Finding A Way To Combat Skin Picking Disorder (Dermotillomania), When You Have Plaque Psoriasis And Scalp Psoriasis. Any Ideas?

As many of you know, psoriasis comes with a great deal of sub diagnoses, such as depression, anxiety, OCD, fibromyalgia, panic disorder, PTSD, etc. Unfortunately, I have a diagnosis of several of these things to include Dermatillomania, a skin picking disorder that falls under an anxiety/OCD disorder. This tends to happen when I become anxious, upset, angry, and I do not know how to manage my emotions in a proper manner due to a lifetime of improper behavioral and emotional reinforcing. I am… read more
