I have had psoriases for 5yrs now. Till this date neither me nor the doctor knows what triggers it but I was covered head to toe within three weeks. I have been using steroids cream, light treatment, cyclosporine & Methotrexate.
Now I am taking Methotrexate 25mg once a week and 5mg folic acid on a non Methotrexate day. My skin seems to be calm down a bit but not completely gone. Sometimes it aggravate so bad I have to take Methotrexate & cyclosporine together for weeks and go back to Methotrexate again. I check my blood at the hospital every 3 month to see my kidney & liver function. My Dermatology seems happy since there is no side effect so far. ( touch wood) .... But I'm really depressed. I wanted to have a child but because of the Methotrexate I can't get pregnant. I'm 37yrs old now. I don't know how long I can wait just hoping it to go away because non of the Meds seems to work on me. Thus affect my relationship too. Psoriases took over my life.... I apologise for my English, it's my second language 😄
