I'm really going through alot at this time in my life. I'm 17 years old and I have bad psoriasis and really bad acne. There's not a spot on my body thats clear. The psoriasis covers my whole body and the acne is covering my whole face. I'm just really depreseed about it. Its summer and I can't even show my body. I'm really huert by this. I'm also having problems with my boyfriend. He's really abusive and treats me bad. What should I do? How can I stop feeling depressed?

First of all, you need to get rid of that boyfriend. That is that is one way of feeling depressed. (Please don't say you love him, because he doesn't love you)You should not allow anyone to treat you bad more less abusive. Get rid of the biggest problem you have right now. Once you get rid of that problem the rest will be easy. As for your acne get proactivy(the one in the commerical) second go to a doctor and ask him what you can take for psoriasis. Please don't be another statics. If other people have told you to dump him butt, do it. There are other guys other there that will love you for who you are. Don't let jerk like him make you fell worthless. You are a somebody, and don't you ever forget that. If you were my daughter, believe me I have his butt on the curb and my foot up his your know what. There way too many kids that are being abuse by their boyfriend and don't know how to talk to anyone. Too many accidents have happen to girl like you. Don't be another one of these kids. talk to your mom, ask for help, call a helpline. But dump his behind.

Number 1 - Dump him, nobody deserves to be treated this way. Start looking into yourself, you need to love yourself before somebody can love you. Number 2 - see a dermatologist, you will most likely feel better. Number 3 - see a counselor to talk through your depression. I would recommend immediate action on all three.

maybe using a soap that couldnt prevent about your diseases, try other brand maybe it can help your problem. About your boyfriend if he is treated you badly i guess you have to take time of your self dont let your boyfriend abusing you. Have faith in your self.

you know where you stand in this situation. your problem aint stopping because you allow your boyfriend to abuse you. he is just your boyfriend, leave him for good. he will not do you any good, and you know that for sure. Why stay with a man that treats you bad??

Psoriasis can be physical manifestations of stress (I've had two or three terrible bouts of it in my life). I'm thinking maybe acne too. Get rid of your boyfriend, he is definitely a source of stress - and most probably a psoriasis/acne inducer!

First, I promise there is life after 17. I really promise you that. Things get less confusing, in a way. Second, dump your boyfriend. You don't need him. You're better than him. Don't even bother talking to him. There are people who care about you. Third, have you seen a dermatologist about your psoriasis? Sometimes it's just a matter of finding the right combination of topical and pill therapy. Psoriasis is actually an auto-immune disease of the skin, and milk-thistle supplements can help your liver boost support to your skin. (Ask your doctor first, though!) There is also "sun-therapy" to help clear up the breakouts of psoriasis. There are so many things your dermatologist could help you with, and they can help your acne, too. (That too will probably fade in a year or two.) You may also want to seek out talk-therapy for depression. I've been there. it's hard, especially at your age, but you've gotta talk to someone.

Dump your boyfriend. No woman deserves to be abused. Boyfriends are supposed to be there to support you and make you happy, if they're not doing their job then they're useless. As for the psoriasis and really bad acne, I would advise you to consult a dermatologists. There are many medications you can use. Bur remember, its not the outside looks that make someone special.... its the beauty from the inside.
