Welcome to the Psoriasis Help Organisation, otherwise known as PHO. This is a web site dedicated to helping people suffering from the Chronic Skin Disease Psoriasis. This site contains information about Treatments, Handy Tips for living with the Psoriasis and other topics. This is a privately owned site (not a charity), run and administered by psoriasis sufferers, for psoriasis sufferers.

We are not medical professionals, just enthusiastic amateurs, with a goal to provide an informative and friendly environment to learn about Psoriasis and discuss topics with others in similar situations. The primary idea for this site is to provide a discussion forum. A place where fellow Psoriasis sufferers can exchange views and advice on how to live with and treat Psoriasis.

There are many types of psoriasis including Guttate, Plaque, Pustular, Psoriatic Arthritis and Flexural Psoriasis which can affect most areas of the body including the Scalp, Genitals and Nails, both fingernails and toenails. We have some Pictures of Psoriasis which show most of the different types of psoriasis and locations on the body which it can appear. See the menu link on the left.

We also have information on many different types of treatment, Including PUVA, UVA, UVB, Biological, Systemic, Steroid and Non-Steroid based psoriasis treatments. Many of these psoriasis treatments are discussed in greater detail in the Psoriasis Help Forum.

Please use the forum to ask questions about Psoriasis that you would like answered, express views that you have regarding Psoriasis and discuss treatments that you have used or are interested in using. We encourage you to talk about anything that you feel may be beneficial to others and to become part of the friendly community that we have created. Psoriasis can be an isolating, depressing disease and it often helps to discuss your feelings with others that really understand. You are not alone.

Hey guys, been a while since my last post. Anyway I was wandering around the supermarket a couple of weeks ago and came across the nivea in shower moisturiser on sale so decided to buy one. Basically it's a moisturiser you apply at the end of your shower and then give yourself a quick final rinse. The idea being that you then don't have to apply another one after drying. Although a bit sceptical, I must admit its good stuff! My skin feels well moisturised for the day and its reduced the flaking particularly on my elbows. Its pretty cheap as well so overall its seems like a good buy particularly if your a bit lax with a daily moisturising regime.

Hi there everybody

After UVB light therapy last year, my P came back within a few months.

My dermatologist has now given me the option of going on Methotrexate.

I am 27 years old and have no children. My dermatologist told me that whilst i was on this drug, i could not conceive and if i did, i would have to have a termination. When i do want children, i must be off the drug for 6 months before trying.

I have done some research but couldn't really seem to find a lot out there. I have found that if you do get pregnant on Methotrexate, it can cause deformaties in the baby and the drug takes 6 months to get out of your system hence the reason for waiting 6 months before trying for a baby.

I would like to hear from anybody who has been on Methotrexate and gone on to have children afterwards. I am slightly worried that this drug will affect my future fertility.

Thanks in advance people.

Hello, not visited here for a while but after some advice please if anyone can help
I have been on ciclosporine now for about 15 months side effects are naff but its better than the alternative.  Any way, Thursday,  my 4 year old developed a few blistery type spots, friday morning, she had around 15, and Saturday she had about 25.  I took her to see the pharmacist who is pretty sure its chicken pox.  She already had chicken pox, when she was 2.5, it does look very similar.  Today a lot of the spots have just faded, whist a few have scabbed.
I kind of remember being warned about being in contact with chicken pox, while taking ciclosporin but cant really remember, so am I at risk? what should I do?  I was in contact with chicken pox when I was pregnant and told I was immune, so does that mean I am not at any risk and can just forget about this??  I am due to travel to Spain next week, so this is just going to worry me.  Thanks in advance xx
