hey i've had psoriasis since I was 21, I am now 40 .It has definatly been a very hard thing . people look at you like your a monster and whisper and do all kind of rude things. Mine started out when I got strep throat. It broke out in my scalp and each year it claims a new part of my body, needless to say it is covered all parts and it's very patchy. I have tried all sorts of topicals , shampoos , done the PUVA thing with each new treatment I try it clears up in the beginning ,but then comes back with a vengence . I have not tried the injectables , becuase I have hep c And they said it would do more harm than good. I always think to myself If I could have anything in the world it would be to be psoriasis free. It really makes me wonder why they cannot find a cure for something they say is so simple. I have contemplated suicide on many occasions becuase of the pain (physically and mentally) of this horriable thing. I am so glad I found this forum atleast to vent. I am the only one in my family as far as I can go back who has this except my sister ,who has small patches on her knees and elbows.
