My Sisters Psoriasis Is Gone !!!!

I just want to say being an identical twin, at age 24, and watching her go through what she has gone through has taken a toll. THis all happened about a year ago. So its not something she was born with. She started off with little red circles all over her body, then she got it on her scalp, the last straw was when her nails started to fall off. She tried every ointment and oils. She then went to a Psoriasis docter, that she found on a web site, and got perscribed Humira. She has to inject herself in the stomach every two weeks which sounds terrible but for what she has been going through its worth it. SHe has done only 2 injections (4 weeks) and it is completly gone. They say to take pictures because it will completly go away and insurance companies will not insure it anymore because they think you do not have psoriasis. So far she has had no side affects but has to take mega vitamines because it will slow down your immune system. This skin disease is not fair!!!! I just thought i would share this with you all because I can relate to some extent because I had acne for a few years. I started using Proactive and it worked for me Check it out...look into it!!! Good luck!!!

Re: My Sisters Psoriasis Is Gone !!!!

Well im happy to hear that she has had success with Humira. I might ask my dermatoligist about this as i have something that is quite similar to psoriasis.
