Just out of interest do any of you have. Another autoimmune disease as well as the psoriasis? I was diagnosed with psoriasis at the age of 15, UC at 30 now Crohn's at 53!! I'm lucky my psoriasis has never been as bad as some people's. I was a phlebotomist in my local hospital and would often take blood from patients from rheumatology with very severe psoriasis. I could have wept for them but everyone was always so brave.
