Embarassed

I swear if it isn’t one thing it is another thing.  There always seems to be something wrong withme.  I have been doing really well whenit comes to the MS and now I have a new issue. I would much rather deal with the MS that what I have going on now but Iguess I don’t get a choice in all of it.  I think I have psoriasis (I haven’t gone to a doctor for it yet buteverything I have researched leads me to believe that I have it.) Psoriasis isa chronic condition in which the immune systems sends out faulty signals thatmakes the skin cells reproduce faster than they should.  What gets to me is that this is another thingthat my immune system does wrong!!!!  Iam starting to think that they should get rid of my immune system because it iscausing more problems that it is worth. There are several different types of psoriasis and I the one I have iscalled inverse psoriasis.  This type isfound in folds of skin like your armpits, genitals and under breasts.  They say that this type is aggravated mysweat and friction.  Well what in theheck am I supposed to do now???  I guessI can use this as an excuse when doctors tell me I need to exercise.   For me personally the spots that I have areitchy and painful to say the least. Right now I have it under both arms. They are ok on days that I don’t sweat and have my jacket on.  I am glad that work is always cold because Ican wear my jacket and not look like a freak.  They also say that there isprobably a genetic link but as far as I know I am the only one in the familythat has it but we all know that I am always the odd ball.  I think I developed it because of the Tysabrithat I take for MS because of how the drug works it messes with the immunesystem.  I will probably never know forsure what is causing it and it will never go away.  It makes me sad to know that I now have todeal with this disease everyday for the rest of my life.  It embarrasses me to say the least.  I can only imagine what people think if theysee it.  They look like big bug bitesmost of the time except when they get the “scales” looking tops on them.  It is the weirdest thing I have ever seen andonce they start to peel it gets caught on things and hurts then it starts toitch.
Here a few pictures of what it looks like.  I am not posting any pictures of me becauseit is too hard to take pictures of mine because of where they are at.

  1. I get the inverse one you described. The best thing I've discovered for it is to slathered on a thick layer of Eucerine cream and let it soak in.

  2. I have also heard that Arbonne products help for some people, in particular the baby body lotion (I can send you a sample) or this lotion which unfortunately does not come as a sample: https://arbonne.com/shop_online/showitem.asp?ProductId=481&menuId=145&withLinks=1

    Hope you feel better soon!

  3. Oh girl. I hope you can get some relief.

  4. I'm so sorry sweetie. It does seem these days if it's not one thing it's another. My husband has psoriasis – it's the seasonal kind and it's mainly on his hands and elbows – I don't know why it picks those locations. He only get's it when the weather changes but I know it makes him miserable.

    Hope you can find something to help.
