Treat psoriasis with me: Intro + My story

I have psoriasis
(Sounded so dramatic lol).

*If you don't know what it is HERE is Wikipedia's link to it ;)*

Last winter I started to get super itchy red bumps all over my arms and back that itched so bad I HAD to scratch them till it bleeds. Yeah sounds pretty creepy. I didn't really do much about that. I started to moisturise more, I thought it's only dry skin, that's normal for winter I guessed. But then those dry flaky red skin bumps decided that my forehead is a perfect place for them to settle down ;) I had only like 2 scales on my forehead but it didn't look appealing at all. Thus I decided to go to the dermatologist to find out what the hell is going on. She calmly told me that I have psoriasis. So said I will be having it for the rest of mt life and that there is NO treatment that could heal my scales immediately or forever. I was surprised because this skin disease is inherited but no one in my family has it. She also said that I won't die for this and that it's not contagious in any way or form. **good to know**
