Has Anyone Noticed Any Flare Ups After Stopping A Tumeric Supplement?

Has Anyone Noticed Any Flare Ups After Stopping A Tumeric Supplement?

I recently started at Ketogenic diet and have had some good results in how I feel and am starting to drop some lbs. I am peri-menopausal and have had a couple of brutally long and heavy periods this month and last. I stopped taking turmeric to see if it has any effect. I stopped bleeding within a day or two, and the next day I had a flare up in all of my locations at once. I haven't done much else different and have been on the diet for almost… read more

Nail Psoriasis

Nail Psoriasis

I had a routine doctor appointment yesterday and he looked at my fingernails and said that I have psoriasis. I told him that I don't have a single red plaque spot on my body that my skin itches and sometimes drive me insane. What I want to ask all of you is this: What is THE BEST OVER THE COUNTER CREAM/LOTION for my nail psoriasis and the ITCHY SKIN??? Thanks in advance......

Biologics For Psoriasis

Biologics For Psoriasis

I have taken many biologics (7 in total). Currently I am clear using Skyrizi. My body responds well to biologics but not surprisingly they lose effectiveness over time for me. My question is; has anyone ever went back on a biologic that they had previously failed on and had success with it? I have asked multiple dermatologists and have asked other forums but nobody seems to have tried it. My motivation for the question is the fact that I have taken 7 of them and I am starting to run out… read more

[1] E.g., Cetaphil Restoraderm and Eucerin, among others: read more

My First Psoriasis Flare Up

My First Psoriasis Flare Up

Recently I've had my first psoriasis flare up....I think? I've been partially diagnosed through a tele call and pictures ive sent. I will be going to an in person appointment soon. The location is my left ankle. When the flare up began, there was an intense burning and itching like I've never felt before. It felt like my ankle was on fire, like red ants biting furiously. I didnt know what it was at the time so I put ice on it. The ice worked great. The next morning i woke up to my… read more
