Hi everyone.

First post for me on this subject, and the skin condition that has really given me a blow to self-confidence !

Anyway those of you that know what Psoriasis is wont need it explained to you.

I have had it for a little over a year now, having been given a probable cause due to my Dad dying over 3 years ago. I have been lucky enough to be given a hospital sun treatment, and everyone that has this condition knows the sun is the best ointment. It has worked like a beauty on my body, and did do for a little while on my face.

I was just wondering if anyone wanted to talk about it, be nice to have a talk.

I am 20 years old

Re: Psoriasis

Yeah the doctors I spoke to said that sunbeds can do something in the way to help, but because it is a mix of all sorts of lights, it wont be a significant one.

The stuff I had was concentrted UV exposure for up to 5 minutes towards the end of my treatment and it has made it a lot easier to manage to simple exposure to summer sun...just not so easy at the moment as we approach Christmas !!!

Anyway cant wait for the summer to start, going to be out in it A LOT.

Good luck to you though mate, hope you find something that might help with the un-curable
