Inherited From Both Parents, Exacerbated By Stress

I never had it until I left school to work. I had it until I went back to school. Then it returned once I graduated and had remained ever since.

I have a relatively light case - small areas here and there. Worst is on my hands, but I can moisturize and ex-foliate  until there's only a pink area left.

When I was on a strict low-carb diet the worst lesions shrunk or disappeared. After I reverted back to a typical diet they returned.

Every case is different. I haven't tried any of the new drugs, but I'm convinced that, in my case, if I de-stressed, ate right, exercised, slept well, and got a moderate amount of sun - wouldn't a roof-top solarium be perfect? - my psoriasis would largely disappear.

I've learned to live with my case, but as I see it appearing in my children, and my nieces and nephews, my heart breaks, as it does for everyone with this awful condition.

Psoriasis can be caused due to Genetic problems that means if anybody has psoriasis from family then there are chances to get it to their child. May be this is reason why your children, nieces and nephews are having Psoriasis. Although there is no cure, you can get control on psoriasis by taking proper treatment.

If you are located in Sweden and want to get treatment for psoriasis, which would be really helpful for you then contact to any good treatment provider like Dermasyd(

seriously jonquil323???

You should have thought of that before deciding to have kids.
