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.
Click on "The Forum" Link to enter the 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.

Has anyone noticed a difference in their P between using Non Bio and Bio washing detergent. I've always used Non Bio and so has my Mum but I'm struggling to get stains out of kids school clothes and been advised Bio would help. Don't want up switch and find it irritates P.

Does anyone on here live in the sticks & have to travel a long way to hospital for PUVA treatment ?
I have been told the nearest PUVA / UVB for me is Taunton, Bridgewater or Exeter.
To me it seems crackers to drive miles for a few seconds in the light, although i know it helps my P.
It costs me fortune in fuel to get to these hospitals & i'm not one of our honorable MP's whom can claim it all on expenses.
Just wondered if anyone has a similar problem that's all ?
