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

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
Anyone have any ideas for finger psoriasis . Been going to derm for 6 months and all they say is keep putting the clobetasol ointment on them . It goes away slightly and comes right back . Fingernails yellowing too . Any other treatments work?
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.

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
Can anyone recommend anything for the palm of my hands. It's so embarrassing.
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
