Good Morning, I have been recently told I have Psoriasis by a doctor that spent all of 5 minutes with me. It started as a little round patch of red dry skin on my one elbow. It was about the size of a dime, then a nickel and now a quarter. It doesn't look like any of the photos I have been able to find in the web. I had it for about 5 months and then little new ones started to pop up on my arms and legs. It actually looks like chicken pocs. They will be red, and form a layer of dry skin on them. Some as small as a pin head others larger. I then developed what I thought was extreme dandruff and started using very dandruff shampoo and conditioner under the sun. That only got worse along with more "spots". Next I started having extreme itching in my vaginal area that made me think I had a yeast infection and, as if all the other wasn't enough, I developed issues in my butt area. I finally went to the doctor who looked at me for 30 seconds, said I had psoriasis and wrote a prescription for Vectical and Ultravate creams with a treatment regimen outlined. For my scalp she gave me Luxiq foam. None of which seems to be helping my situation. I just really didn't need this now as I am sure anyone of you reading this did not either. I am unemployed and not having any luck finding a job. I have other health issues that I deal with everyday and take medication for. Now I am embrassed to go out of the house, not to mention my relationship with my husband of 40 years is strained because I am very ashamed and embrassed about my body right now. I just wish I could crawl in a hole somewhere. Has anyone out there used any of these meds? Any advice that anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated. I really don't understand too much about this ailment. I lived through 57 years of life without it and all off a sudden I get it?? Just can't wait for the next punishment in life..I saw that some remarks say about scratching makes more of them. I have a tendency to pick things. They start as what looks almost like a bug bite and I do scratch them and then there is more. It that what is making it multiply? Any knowledge anyone can share would be sooo helpful to me please. Thank you in advance and God Bless.

So my daughter, who will be 30 in a few months, says she thinks she has varicose veins, as she can't figure out what else it could be. Only in one leg, and is so bad it is hard to sleep at night. She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
