*for people with psoriasis*..............

I has my tonsills out a year ago (i am now 25).
I had psoriasis for years and was hospitalised because i was coverd . My psoriasis came out in round spot like shapes...large ones lol.
It seemed that everytime my tonsills were inflamed and sore that my psoriasis would flare up i was told by the ENT to have them out and see if it was them causing my flares of psoriasis for years. After all i did have light therapy...gels ...creams...etc. the light therapy worked but the psoriasis came back every time.
I had the tonsills out and they have gone!!!!!!!!! I have had 3 little spots thats it ...nothing else its great.(O:
So if you now anyone who has psoriasis tell them to try having them out lol.

I have got to say it was very very painfull!!!!!! a lot lot more painfull that having a c section but i suppose that because tonsills are connected to throat ...near the head etc......ouch...i was even re admitted becasue i couldnt swallow they got that infected....but it was worth it.

Re: *for people with psoriasis*..............

LOL wow that is crazy and I'm happy for you.

I had my tonsils out when I was oh say 8 or 9? And I developed psoriasis around age 12, so I don't know if it has anything to do with it for me. Psoriasis is a genetic mutation in the skin cells, so it's very hard to tell what causes it. It can also be genetic, but I'm not sure if that's true in all cases (My mother had it when she got pregnant with her first, and it went away when she got pregnant with her third and last child).

I wouldn't run out to get your tonsils removed because it may be the reason why, but it is definitely something to look into.
