Humira Hasn't Helped, I Had Such High Hopes...

I have had psoarisis my whole life. It is always there, from just the little patches on my elbows, to horrible flare ups at ages 10, 15, 22 & now again for the last 2 years at age 28. I've tried various treatments over the years, from wearing in oil medication & shower cap every night and heavy ointments on my skin, to trying Remicaid IV treatments (2 years ago). Remicaid stopped working after the first month or so. I stopped all treatments due to a job/insurance change. I started the process again this past January. I was diagnosed with psoariatic arthritis & Spondylitis as well. Coincidently, I have had back/joint problems as far back as age 10 as well. Tomorrow will be 4 months that I have been taking Humira injections. Initially, it did help some of the pain in my back. But after the first month that was back to normal pain. It hasn't improved my psoriasis at all. In fact it has gotten progressively worse! I have my follow up with the dermatologist next week. I'm VERY discouraged at this point. It is on my scalp, in my ears, on my face, on the rim of my nose, elbows and done my arms, scattered on my chest stomach and back and terrible patches on my knees and shins. The patches on my legs each considerable worse then the rest. Also, those same patches itch terribly and often feel hot and warm too the touch. I am at the end of the line. I feel hopeless! My legs are so bad, I can't ever wear shorts capris skirts-anything :( ANY ADVICE YOU MIGHT WOULD BE APPRECIATED!

Thank you for sharing, Amy....many of us are struggling with the same thing and feel for you.

Did you try UVB narrowband phototherapy?
