Background about me: I am a 23 year old. I had my first flare up when I was 16. It was so minor so I did not really pay attention. Then when I was 17, I had a severe breakout all over my body. It was terrible because the dermatologist I was seeing at the time did not have any other treatment options except topical creams. I stopped seeing the derm. I found Barney's Formula along with the Psoriasin Gel. I took the formula every day and applied lotion and Psoriasin Gel to my body 2 times daily. My body psoriasis was gone in 4 months of consistency.
Fast Forward to June 2012
I started to breakout in P really bad again. All over my body. Topical creams did not work. Lotion didnt work. Barney's Formula didnt work. I went to a new derm and she suggest Humira because I have severe plaque P.
I started Humira on Feb 15, 2013. I think it has been 6 weeks right? Right now my psoriasis is clear. I pretty much only have the leftover hyperpigmentation from psoriasis so you can still see where my P patches used to be. Also, my scalp also got clear too. I am being optimistic because it has been such an amazing drug.
I know people talk about all the potential side effects all the time. But I did not really care because the emotional pain of having psoriasis was so bad. It was so bad that the thought suicide even came to my mind during my worst nights. Again, about the potential side effects, after doing my research, I think driving a car is more dangerous than taking Humira because the chance of the side effects happening is so slim.
Hope this helps some people. I know I will leave this forum one day after I am totally clear. Just wanted to share a success story while I am still here.
Also, if you have questions, feel free to post and I will try to best to answer them.
