Psoriasis Symptoms Suck!

Psoriasis sucks. Truly, it is such a frustrating condition to manage. Esspecially the symptoms! What symptoms frustrate you the most?

This is a safe space to let it out! Vent away about all the ways that psoriasis symptoms suck!

  1. , psoriasis symptoms definitely suck! There are so many frustrating and difficult symptoms that we have to deal with. I think the one that has frustrated me the most over the years is the flaking. When my scalp psoriasis was severe, I used to get a lot of flakes in my parting. They were very visible. I would try to pick them out and somehow, with each one I picked from the hair, another ten would appear! It seemed as if from nowhere (I wasn't picking at my actual scalp, just trying to remove the existing flakes from my hair). Very annoying ! My scalp psoriasis has thankfully improved since then.

    I think these days, the most difficult symptom I deal with is the burning sensation. It's quite painful and can be very distracting. Also, I've found that not many people seem to know that psoriasis can burn, which adds to the frustration! Very interested to hear others' thoughts on this. Great discussion topic! -Catherine, Community Moderator

    1. Scaling

      1. the scaling is terrible. I always tell everyone I could never get away with a crime because I would leave skin traces for a dna sample. Do you find anything that makes the scaling better? Vickie W., Team Member
