Psoriasis Support Group

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.

calendula cream/lotion

I wasn't sure if this has been discussed already but I thought I'd put my experience up. I just started my freshman year of college and have had sever psoriasis for the last four years. At the beginning of the summer my legs, feet, torso and arms were absolutely horrible even though I was doing light-box 1-2 times a week and using steroid creams so my mom took me to this alternative medicine doctor who uses the B.E.S.T. program.
She recommended using Calendula Lotion or cream, a natural product that is available at health food stores usually in the first aid section. It's meant for sunburn and burns but it worked amazingly well for my psoriasis. My skin hasn't looked this good in years.

I highly recommend it!

Good luck

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
