Anyone here have Psoriasis (skin disorder)?

I've had Psoriasis since I was 7 and it covered nearly 75% of my body in large scaley patches and they itched. A few months ago I started using injections called Enbrel and have significantly cleared up, except my legs are clearing slowly. I don't itch, you can hardly tell I have Psoriasis. It's quite amazing after all the years of creams, shampoos, and tanning therapy that this finally works. I'm so excited, just wondered if anyone else here has it.

Thanks. It's actually quite a common disease, although usually not to my extent. In fact some people probably never know they have it if its minimal or in areas where dry skin would normally be. Most people have sligght patches on their elbows and knees if they do have it. Hopefully someone here will find this information helpful.

I´m glad that you were helped with Enbrel. I have psoriasis but not as you do so it´s just a bother and nothing more. My best cure up to now is less expensive and a lot more fun. Every time I go to Aruba, I don´t know that is is the climate or the peace or both but in one week I´m good as new. I wish I could live there.
