Hi - well today has been not too bad but I was woken up several times last night with itching. Today my upper chest looks like it has sunburn. It hasn't seen daylight since about September! The top layer of skin is going dry now. Hopefully it will slough off and get back to normal. I never had skin problems like this till last year.

It's like a minor moving flare! Just keeping me uncomfortable - not ill like many. I know I'm lucky. 3 weeks ago it was sore ribs and 'electric shocks' - two weeks ago it was itchy eye sockets and eczema round both eyes and now it's a 'sunburnt' chest! They've all left me sleep deprived though!

Thanks again for the answers.

Take care - Scottie  :)

You are never bored, though! 

I wish you could have a long stretch of utter boredom with no symptoms.

Lol@Sharon!  :)

I would just love a whole month without thinking about a GP, a specialist, an opthamologist or a dentist!!  :)

I have a rough patch on one elbow and had it for some time before I think I noticed it.  I happened to ask the derm when I was in there and he said it was psoraisis.  It hurts a bit occasionally and a little itch, but it's so small it's of no bother.  I found the same patch elsewhere on my person, but I forget where. lol.  So I have but a touch of psoraisis, just enough to know what it looks like.  If I keep it well lubed, it behaves.  I with all rashes were this mild.  Lucy

Sorry, Jazzlover and Soycoffee......we wouldn't dream of driving you to the brink of insanity!

OT means "off topic"...of course in here, most things connect to the topic sooner or later, SjS can get it's nasty little fingers into just about any pie!

My husband has psoriasis patches that crack and bleed unless he keeps them slicked up with vitamin e oil. He used to stick a pin in the vitamin e pill, but we've found some vitamin e oil in a bottle so now he uses that.

Linda, thanks for clearing up the OT --- I was hoping someone was being paid overtime!   ;)

Thanks, Linda. It still looks like "Overtime" to me, which is what the forum administrators seem to put in! (;-})
