A couple years ago I happened to be tabling for the National Psoriasis Foundation at a California state event featuring non-profits. As I walked around to other tables I met someone from my town nearby. He happened to also have psoriasis and shared about his radiation treatments for psoriasis from fifty years ago. That’s when I knew sharing treatment stories can be a powerful way of expressing our life experience with psoriasis.
Over the past forty-plus years I’ve tried many, many treatments for psoriasis and atopic dermatitis (psoriasis). Some treatments doctors continue to prescribe. Other treatments received updates. And yet still some are footnotes in treatment history. In the course of the past ten years I’ve also blogged about some of these treatments.
My goal for this section of PsoHoward is to share my personal treatment experiences from years past to the present. By doing so I hope you get some ideas for yourself, feel encouraged someone else goes through similar treatment ups and downs, and gain a measure of hope to keep fighting and trying.
This project will take some time, but it is a worthy endeavor. I’ll add treatments to this section as time and inspiration allows. In the mean time, I hope and pray that you find ways to treat and cope with your skin conditions in a way that allows you to live your best life each day.
