This is my personal story which I thought would be nice to have posted to this Website. As a past reader of the site, I hope to help others with what I have gone through and learned. First things first! Psoriasis creams can be very helpful.
About 15 years ago when I was younger, my Psoriasis started popping up. I has no idea what it was, but as a young woman it was extremely embarassing. I would go out on dates, and it could be seen sometimes on my elbows, in my ears, and in the front edges of my hair. In general, to this day, I don't really know when people could see my Psoriasis but I always assumed they could.
My solution was to wear heavier clothes that covered up more of my skin... and to go out more at night. I took up hobbies like ballroom dancing and sometimes went to bars and clubs. All these places helped to hide my Psoriasis in the dark. When I went out during the day to events at beaches, outdoor festivals, and shopping centers, I was always worried people could see my Psoriasis.
I ended up internalizing a lot of my worries and pushing them deep down inside. At times I would get injections at the doctor to heal my Psoriasis. Then it would come back quickly and the injections would work less the next time. I got prescriptions for many skin creams and ointments. Prescribed skin creams and ointments were a lifesaver over time, but very tedious, and many lost their effectiveness over time. I have been on many, many treatments by pill and injection. Unfortunately, I'm one of those people that does not react well, often getting side effects. I have ended up now using a combination of natural treatments, phototherapy, and lotions to keep my skin as clear as possible. These are my favorite two lotions for psoriasis.
I have a new lease on life, as my Psoriasis is barely visible now. I have had up to 90% coverage at times in the past, and now I generally stay at less than 1% coverage. Best of luck to you and I hope my story has helped you.
