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. I’m seeing my consultant every six months just to monitor things –…

Living With Psoriasis

Some time ago I was invited to a round table discussion about psoriasis. It was convened by Forest Laboratories: they produce psoriasis cream Exorex. The chairman was Martin Godfrey: former GP, now journalist.

A strange number to choose. Please, don’t bother writing in to point out…

Parliamental Health

Shedding Cumbersome Blog Titles – a trip to Parliament, some amazing canapes, and so light at the end of the tunnel (that, for a change, isn’t ultra-violet): This week I went to the House Of Commons to address a group of human beings and MPs about psoriasis, as part of the See Psoriasis: Look Deeper…
