"Seems like the Humira is making you feel better, Laura, and the hrdrocortisone and coal tar (both inexpensive over the counter topicals) might help a little bit where the Humira is not finishing the job. The caffeine and rest of its mumbo-jumbo to…"
"Laura..I am sorry to hear of your friends death :( I am just wondering if it is possible to acquire the lotion you are using for $20.00? I do not live to far from Georgia :) Thank you so much!
"Laura, I am saddened to hear about the death of your young friend. No one should have their life cut short. Thank you for the advice. This is, as you know, an extremely painful condition. God bless you for taking the time to reply to me."
"I wanted to share something with yall. I have pustular psoriasis and I am using humira for about six months now but also a cream. A nurse told me of a pharmacy in GA (from what i know this pharmacist makes it himself) and this cream has…"

CUTE dog!!! I see that you are friends with Deanna and Derrick whom I have known for years!!! Great peeps!
I don't know if you are aware but we are having a walk for Psoriasis/Psoriatic Arthritis on June 5th in Charlotte. Let me know if you can come because I am going to get a group together the night before the walk!!!
I have done the light treatments and they, like a lot of things, seemed to work better when I was younger. Now it seems that I get really tan but the spots barely fade. Steroid foam works the best for me, but I use it sparingly. I'm not using any type of treatment right now and I'm surprisingly pretty clear. But I've had a sore throat for the last few days so we'll see if it flares in the next week. Frustrating, isn't it?
