After sluffing off the extra skin I use Ponds cold cream on hands and feet 2x per day morn and night. I alternate the ponds with a topical cream from doctor. My hands and ... Read More

I BEG YOU to speak to your doctor first. I know people mean well (mostly). There are some trying to sell their snake oil. But it's fee and far between. But some of the suggestions can harm you. Can put your health at risk. Can put you in the hospital. And the number one fact to keep in mind: There is no cure for Psoriasis. Anyone who says they have a cure is full of 💩💩💩💩💩 And yes ...

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

I've been taking the new oral medication Otezla for about 6 or 7 weeks now. I have not felt any benefit at all...yet. I called Celgene (the manufacturer of Otezla) today, and was told that they're getting a lot of calls with the same concern. The only information they have is results from studies at 16 weeks and 32 weeks. If you've taken Otezla, did it take a long time to "kick in ... Read More

Hi there, I'm 29, been dealing with psoriasis for about fifteen years and with PsA for the last 3 or so. I would classify my PsA as moderate; I go through most days without much pain, other than my back in the mornings.
