Well.. I have a family history of psoriasis. It stinks because the skin issues are on my Mom's side and the CD is from my Dad's side. I have not been officially dx'd with psoriasis yet, but if i actually got to a derm. I am pretty sure I am in the beginning stages. i get little red blotches that turn itchy and raw, then turn beige (which is dark next to my white-white skin
) and stay that way for over a year.
My Mom's skin was absolutely disgusting. There is no nice way to put it. She had patches of raw skin when it got really bad. She had other medical conditions so she had to stop the one thing that helped her...methotrexate. Have you been on metho at all? Might be a thought.
Right now I avoid the sun becuase of family history of skin cancer. I do take D supplements but I don't know if it really helps or not for me.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....
