Psoriatic arthritis

I have just posted about having psoriasis - which at one point I had very badly but now have a few spots scattered across my body. However I have found my hips really start to hurt and was tested a few years ago for rheumatism and it was negative. This has now come back - please can you tell me whet...

Small psoriasis spots

Hi- I have had psoriasis on and off for a number of years and recently have noticed more small spots than normal. They appear on my legs, tummy and sometimes on my face. They are about 1 cm in size and stay for ages. I went to the doctor and he gave me some mild steroid cream to place on them. The e...

Psoriasis scarring

Hello - I've had bad psoriasis in the past - but luckily it has always cleared up leaving no mark. Over the last couple of months I have had a few more spots than normal and noticed that they have left a bright pink mark - almost as if the pigmentation of my skin has disappeared. As I've had more sp...

AGE and weight gain

Hello - I am 50 and have been lucky enough not to have had to worry really about my weight. I am sensible with both diet and exercise. However I have noticed over the last few years a pound here or there is creeping slowly on and don't believe that I am doing anything that differently from before. S...

Guttate Psoriasis

Hello - I have had Guttate Psoriasis twice very badly and luckily only have a few spots every now and then. However I have just realised that I have more than just a few that have suddenly occured - on my legs, arms, tummy and face. I plan to go into the sun as much as possible (clearly weather perm...

Re: New to this site :)

Hello Tim - I had a scare about a couple of years ago where my GP thought I might have psoriatic arthritis. I suddenly found that I was waking up in the night with real hip ache everytime I turned over in bed. Infact to start with I thought that I must have gone to bed with my belt on - it felt so t...

Re: New to this site :)

Hello - having suffered 2 very bad cases of guttae psoriasis and covered top to bottom I can totally understand how distressing the mental side is. To start with I thought I would be able to cope, but when the weather was good I decided to show all in the hope of the sun rays improving my condition ...

Re: New to this site

Hi Warbie - just posted to another of your posts - but just seen this one - so sorry to hear about your daughter - absolutely dreadful. UV treatment totally worked for me - but clearly I am a lot older than your daughter - I really hope it helps her - as its not a great thing to face as child growin...

Re: This Worked for Me

I've had guttate psoriasis twice in my life and both attacks were very severe - I was covered on every inch of my skin from top to toe in large spots - some were 2 to 3 cm wide and others were smaller just filling in the gaps between the big ones. It was absolutely disgusting and looked like some re...

Re: Guttate Psoriasis?

I've had guttate psoriasis badly twice and now I get a few small spots randomly over my body. However I wish I knew what reason or what might trigger the small spots to appear. Warbie - do you find that you have small spots reoccuring as well or do you just get a massive break out all over your body...
