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.

Good evening all,
a daft question, bearing in mind, the last time for me was 5 years ago, how bad with P do you have to be to be admitted into hospital ?
My P is now doing my swede in.
Am fed up scratching like a dog with fleas.
It's so bad that on what was the clear(ish) parts of my skin now look like i have chicken pox.
The P 'spots' & P in general, i would say is about 75% coverage on me.
I ask as i do not see a derm doc til late next month & if he saw me, he might admit me & i might end up spending crimbo in hospital !
Perish the thought of eating nhs xmas food.
Anyway, your thoughts & views please.

I have been a sufferer for 40 years. Began using Ganodex some months ago. Finally a cream that works for me without those awful steroids.
Great to have these information sites. Weren't around when I was a teenager in agony.

Hi everybody, I am recently diagnosed and at present there is some concern over my creatine levels which have increased from 80 to 90, GFR is 60. Have to have bloods done in a couple of weeks. Any body else with similar symptoms? Can psoriatic arthritis damage the kidneys?
