are you still a member of this group? I'd like to share some very helpful information that might be of good use to you.

I know exactly how you feel. I've had it since I was 7 and now I am 27...not being able to wear short sleeves or anything and feeling "ugly".....it sucks

I've tried lots of meds. they are expensive and so far none work. Sun makes mine worse..... I hear that it s a rare form. The moisterizer creams and oatmeal baths are a joke for me. Have any other ideas. I am so depressed.

have you tried Humera and Embril (sp?) they don't work for me either. Just asking for you

can you reply to my email? not sure how I got to this site but would LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU. We share many of the same things. I just want to live normal again!

I am there with you. LOTs of meds and it only makes it worse. I thought I was the only one. My dr said it is rare form too. Help

Some things work for some people and some things work for others, can you get cream for your skin through a dr, as there are some good ones which I use, theres one called DAIVONEX and it's good, I also found salt water is good not salt you use on you food but in a pool or at a beach, I know you probably wouldn't go to the beach or out in public because of embarassment, so try that cream if you can and I know how your feeling as I got so depressed I was put on anti-depressents, its a horrible disease but talking to others with the same thing does help as your not alone ok. take care. dave

Bigtrest, sorry your going through this mate but a lot of medicines dont work, if you cant afford to go to the dr you could always try different soughts of food which can help a little, just get on the net and type food for psoriasis sufferers. <br />
Also, this is gonna sound stupid but try not to stress thats the worse thing for psoriasis and avoid alcohol thats bad for it too, I used to drink until I found out it's not good for psoriasis either and what will help with the burning is moisturiser cream.<br />
Anyway I hope that helps, I've had this disease for 19 years and everybody handles it differently and people without it dont understand what we go through, as long as you have family and friends thats what matters, anyway look after yourself.<br />
