Last week I finally conjured up the courage to call my insurance provider about the Otezla denial. Right away I knew why I procrastinated.
Since around Thanksgiving I started exercising regularly again--with great benefits to my heart health, sleep habits, mood, energy levels--and potentially psoriasis too.
Today I found out that insurance denied my dermatologist’s prescription for Otezla (apremilast). With so many days passing before hearing I assumed the scrip ran into issues. I was right.
Skin treatments can be especially inconvenient and uncomfortable. Here I highlight six treatments I've tried for psoriasis as I look forward to another inconvenient treatment.
Goeckerman Therapy (phototherapy + coal tar) might be my next (inconvenient) psoriasis treatment. Today I perform a patch test to see if my skin reacts to the tar.
