I was pleasantly surprised to find this site so thanks in advanced to the community.
Ok so for a bit of background story for basically all of my younger life I had terrible dandruff (ill leave out my long stories about doctors) and I always thought it was just dandruff which was really hard to get rid of and then it slowly started to turn into skin (not thick skin) that i could literally peel off and it was like this for about 2 years.
Then it started to go into scales (some fairly thick) which Ive now had as long as I can remember. it has never been red strangely and seems just like thick dry skin.
A few years back I also started getting psoriasis on my body which I solved although im having another small outbreak now. I got it in thick red patches with thick layers of dry scales etc as you usually get (but still never on my scalp) and this literally covered my whole back at one point in patches and the backs of my arms with the occasional small patches on my stomach. I was prescribed really strong steroid creams eventually as it got to the point Id wake up with small specks of blood on the back of my shirt. This got rid of it but left horrible pigmentation which is basically gone now.
Sorry that was a bit long - now my current situation is that ive had little red bumps on my upper arms for years now which arent psoriasis but are left from where the psoriasis was and looks almost like a rash sometimes (thats what I let my last girlfriend think it was anyway because I couldnt be bothered to explain haha). I think they are where the hairs in my arms come out.
I also have little red/scaly patches again on my back and my scalp has never cleared up really although I could be using the things ive been prescribed more often to be fair. They do get rid of it but not for long and I have to use it every day.
Ive just been reading about champori stuff, http://www.champori.com/psoriasis-relief.asp, and wanted to know if people thought this was good please? Does it keep it gone for a while?
Ive also always wanted a tattoo on my upper forearm of greens/blues/purples and although ive never had psoriasis on this part of my body ive always been too worried about getting one here. Do you guys think this would be fine? Ive never gotten psoriasis from broken skin before but since its on my forearm it will be on show a fair bit and I dont want it ruined with psoriasis.
Id really like to hear some opinions on the above points. Sorry if this has all been discussed before but as every psoriasis case is different I thought Id outline mine.
