i looked up psoriasis on the web and found it to be rather interesting because it says it flares up under stress and what not, i've had this for about 2 years straight now. I really hope i am not that stressed out. also i read that you can get it in your joints, which really worries me because i've been having probelms with my knees for the past month and 1/2 and i'm only 20. hehe.. If you could please i would really like to hear some of your ideas on helping it. because it is being a nervoud habbit to play with my hair.

It is called seborrheic dermatitis and if you go see your doc they can prescribe a special shampoo that will take care of it. My son had this this summer and the shampoo worked well. Many people at the nursing home I work at have it too and require the shampoo. If you want to get it taken care of see the doc for the prescription shampoo.
