I’m a psoriasis patient. And its been getting worser worser and worst day by day. Is there a end to it? How can I stop it? I have cried alone alot for this reason. I did all best I could. Many doctors said it can not be cured.. Is this a end of life? I’m still 24. Why me?
*MOD EDIT: I wish there was something I could do for you, anything at all, but right now there isn’t a cure for psoriasis, only temporary relief. There are all sorts of different treatments but I don’t know which ones you’ve tried. It’s a hard disease to deal with, and I’ve been there, as I’m sure we’ve ALL been there. It might be hard, but maybe try going to therapy and talking about your feelings. It could really help you out if you find the right person who will listen to you! It’s not an end of life, but we have to learn to accept it even if it is super difficult. Just try and remember you have other people who feel the same way. <3 xox
Having to gets reassigned in your college dorms to a room alone, because your roommate left a humiliating and passive aggressive note on the front door about your skin flakes, and how “they’re everywhere and it’s disgusting”. And everyone saw it.
amusementofaprincess: I'm on Stelara and it's helping everything except my scalp (stupid scalp). However, I've discovered that coconut oil helps loosen the scales and moisturize everything. I love it. It even makes my hair super soft.
Ooh yeah, I’ve heard coconut oil is amazing for hair anyways, but now I must try it out when I’m having a rough day with my scalp. Thanks! xo
eiffel-power: tips on psoriasis of the ear? its terrible and i didnt know i had it until like a month ago. for YEARS it was mistaken as chronic swimmers ear. so if any of you guys have psoriasis and chronic swimmers ear, check out psoriasis of the inner ear with your doc!
I wish I had tips, but I suffer from it, too! It’s literally one of the only things that will not go away >.> I hate it. Anyone have anything they do for it?
I’ve never heard of this diet, has anyone else? I have used petroleum jelly / vaseline on my psoriasis before, and it’s helped a bit. I’m so glad your skin’s been clear, though! :)
writingfish: How do you stop your skin from peeling open all the time? Every time I shower, it hurts :(
AHH I hate that! Basically, moisturize everything. I have a huge tub of Aveeno non-scented lotion that works wonders for me. You really need to find the right thing for your skin. I’ve even heard of people using Vaseline and wrapping saran-wrap around their skin! Does anyone else have tips? Especially since winter’s coming up!
