Flares and Psoriasis

Posted on March 12, 2018

Flares can be a painful part of life with psoriasis. Members of MyPsoriasisTeam share tearful stories about flares that affect their scalps, hands, ears, and other areas of the body. They also support each other with tips for remedies that helped them cope. “I know my psoriasis would be a lot worse if it wasn’t for the medications I take,” one member reported. Connecting with people who have similar challenges can take some of the physical and emotional stress out of living with psoriasis.

On MyPsoriasisTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Flares are one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about flares:
