Psoriasis Awareness Week

It’s Psoriasis Awareness Week (28th October – 3rd November 2019). I haven’t updated my Psoriasis Blog for a while because there’s not been much change – the usual ups and downs but generally I’m doing well thanks to my treatment regime of biologics.

Psoriasis Shout Out 2016

Many attempts to make severe dermatological conditions vaguely amusing. One or two attempts to make serious dermatological conditions vaguely amusing that have actually worked.  I have been seeing Dr McBride (dermatology…

Another Award

Someone has been nice about this blog again! I post this only because the link may be useful as it leads to another 21 blogs that you may prefer to mine (he said magnanimously whilst posting something praising him). Top 22 eh? A strange number to choose. Please, don’t bother writing in to point out…
