  • My hubby was diagnosed with it about 6 months ago. His is just on the knuckles of his hand and it's not too bad. He uses Psoriasin, an OTC cream or ointment for it. It has helped fade it a bit and it's not as itchy.

  • My sister has it. It developed when she was a teenager and was really bad, due to hormones raging - she had some medicines but it was 20 years ago. Now that she's older, it calmed down a lot and is barely noticeable but has developed into psoriatic arthritis, which she takes embrel for. Sorry I can't be more help, but I'm sure they have better stuff out now than they did back then.

  • Sunshine helps, although there are the obvious risks. There are numerous and expensive treatments.  It is often misdiagnosed, pitting in the nails is an obvious sign.  This is a great site.
