Psoriasis is an immune-mediated disease which affects the skin and joints. When it affects the skin it commonly appears as red scaly elevated patches called plaques. Psoriasis plaques frequently occur on the elbows and knees, but can affect any area of skin including the scalp and genital area. Psoriasis can also cause inflammation of the joints. This is known as psoriatic arthritis.

    Great results with Clobex Spray1

    My dermatologist just retired so I had to find a new one. This new doctor gave me a prescription for Clobex Spray. I have the guttate type of psoriasis so I have little spots all over my body. I've been using the spray since March 11th and every day I see more of it clearing up. It looks like I will be swimming this summer! I remember having a medication that was very similar to this called Skin...

    Good moisturizers?

    Hi all,I'm needing a recommendation for a good moisturizer. :) I have psoriasis and also combination skin (hate that). I keep seeing things suggesting "a good emollient moisturizer" but not sure which one....Can't spend too much on it: Max $30.Thanks!GriffinPS: $30 is a lot to spend on moisturizer, but if it works it'd be worth it to me.

    My psoriasis is about 90% gone!

    Ive sufered from psoriasis for over half my life. Ive had guttate psoriasis since age 20, Im 48 now.

I was fed up to say the least. I did a lot of research and found that psoriasis is usually a...

    Psoriasis and Depression

    I often feel that my psoriasis makes me feel totally depressed more than anything else. I am on disability for major depression. There are times that I just don't want to get up and look in the mirror and shave, because I know that there are some spots under my goatee. Do any of you people have the same problem? and, How did you handle this situation?
