I came across this study online:
Apparently a medicine developed for use to treat certain mental conditions (psychotic symptoms and Schizophrenia) also is being test to treat P. This particular med is injected into the skin, and for treating P, it is injected straight into the lesions.
In addition to P, I suffer from and OCD (Obsessive-compulsive disorder) and take medication also developed originally for people with psychotic symptoms and Schizophrenia (the medicine is now used to treat a number of different mental illnesses). The point I'm getting at is this: I wonder if there is a direct connection with psoriasis and mental illness, not only from the P causing anxiety and depression from the stress of living with it, but perhaps a physiological connection as well?
I have oft wondered if there is one inbalance that creates all the health problems a particular person has...perhaps medicines wil be created someday to balance out what ever is out of place, thus correcting all our problems all at once.
What do you all think?
