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 Psoriatic Arthritis Experience Freezing Cold Hands And Feet?

I have psoriatic arthritis and I'm currently on Etoricoxib and Methotrexate. Does anyone else with PsA get freezing cold hands & feet and generally feel cold? I feel like my body can't regulate it's temperature any longer.

My hands and feet are always cold! My body is equally as cold. I have psoriatic arthritis and am always freezing my bum off. I am glad there are others like me!

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.

Most recently I… read more

Best Anti-inflammatory

Best Anti-inflammatory

I was wondering which anti-inflammatory has worked best for everyone. My fingers are always so swollen and the pain is bad. I do have RA also, but the swelling is just ridiculous and embarrassing. I used to wear a size 8 on my ring fingers, but now it would be about a THIRTEEN and that's no exaggeration. I use ice, Voltaren gel, and Etodolac. Etodolac is expensive this year and isn't working anyway. Any advice?

It's a DMARD. Few side effects for me when I was on it and used it later as an adjunct med.

I Get Terrible Blisters On My Lips Whenever I Go To A Hot Country.

For the past 10 yrs I get terrible sun blisters on my lips whenever I’m on holiday to a hot country, having these blisters are so unsightly & super painful, it’s agony to talk, smile, eat, drink and my pillow overnight gets bloodied and I look a scary mess when I wake up. I wear hats, suncream & lip protector, and I’ve been taking Aciclovir 400mg tabs twice daily for 8 yrs prior to going away on my holidays, but I’m still getting them. My GP prescribed Aciclovir prior to going away for a… read more
