I've had psoriasis since I was about 11. It started in a small patch on my neck, and now it's spread to pretty much every part of my body

Hey :) I'm pretty sure I can help, I was the first person in the UK to pass out during UVB Treatment, not a title I'm proud of but oh well haha.. Umm when I was undergoing the treatment I had the same problems. I'd advise using a cream called Epaderm, that worked miracles for the burning. Also try Oilatum for bath/shower. As well as that, if you drink milk a lot, with tea or cerial etc, stop drinking it, and switch to soya milk. Something about normal makes psoriasis worse and I think it enhances the chances of burning during UVB, at least that's what I found. I may just be going crazy :P If there's anything else, give me a shout; RGKnott@Hotmail.Co.Uk :) x

I have suffered with psoriasis since the age of 7 i am now 17, it has affected me in self consiecness aswell as pain, stress, annoyance and

Hello there, I went through 3 courses of UVB and PUVA treatment, 2 courses were just simpy using the sunbeds for the course period, the PUVA one is controlled with the Dr closely aswell as taking a medication that opens your skin to the light letting more uv rays through, this treatment is the one that caused me the most problems with pain/sores/itchyness/redness you get the drift? Anyhow, the best way to solve this is try keeping your body at a cooler temperature, I mainly felt it at night and I would have to get up at say 2,3,4 am in the night and be half asleep jumping in a cold temrature shower, this was a bit of a pain but it eased it of alot, stick to the diprobase cream thats a corker for cooling and relaxing the psoriasis too. I also found the more I thought about the pain/soreness the more it would occur so even though it is hard try and put it to the back of your mind.
