I think I’ve got psoriasis on my face, and only on my face! It’s mildly itchy, it started of a rash underneath my short beard hair, then it spread up to my cheeks, now it’s on my eyebrows, underneath the eyebrows along the length of the hair ffs! It has seemed to go away on my cheeks now, though so that’s good I suppose. I had to work today and it’s so embarrassing to be walking around with red, flaky skin.
What isn’t good is this; there is no cure for psoriasis, and amazingly doctors don’t even know what causes it!
Several things are said to help psoriasis though,
- Sunlight (I can get plenty of that here in the Australian summer)
- Creams and moisturizers (in my experience, moisturizers do nothing to lessen the redness, they only make the red skin feel fabulous!)
- Less stress (not an option in my life at the moment)
- Voodoo with-doctor magic from deepest darkest Africa! (worth a try eh?)
Such a relatively tiny amount of red skin on the face causes me so much fucking anger and frustration and embarrassment! Enough vile dermatological bastard!
