Hi there - Quick back story- I got strep throat 5 years ago when I was 18 which in turn, turned in to fully blown guttate psoriasis.

I cut my dosage (with derm approval) to 200mg once a week, and ... Read More

My 5th medication - the cyclosporine - I thought was having a positive effect on the inverse Ps (no affect on the PPP) until my dermatologist office called me last week to tell me my latest blood tests came back showing my kidneys were ...

I'm using Sudacrem for psoriasis on my feet and genitals and it is working like magic. Desitin nappy rash cream worked on feet but it is not available in Zambia (where I live). Sudacrem is a light lotion and it immediately took the itch in genital area away. I so hope it can help someone else too. Good luck but give this one a go ... Read More

Topical steroids kept it mostly under control but eventually it ... Read More

Hello. I have PsA plus a myriad of other issues. I am tired of being in pain all the time. I was working and making a change in my life for the better - exercising often and going back to school when it hit me like a brick. I was finally given Remicade but had to stop because it was making me too tire. My FMLA ran out at work and the disability company refused to see me as permanently ... Read More

Hi All! OK, I realize that there are no Medical doctors here, and to take what I read with a grain of salt. But, I just read in a post that Otezla has a "Black Box Warning" regarding depression. I've been on Otezla for just over a week, and am feeling more depressed than usual, and also VERY anxious. Of course, my recent diagnosis of TB (latent) and having to go off Stelara, which ...
