I was told today by my doctor that I don't have psoriatic arthritis because you can't get psoriasis round your eyes. To quote. "in 25 years practice I've never seen psoriasis on the face'. He also said he'd never met a dermatologist who'd mentioned it either. He said it also always presents with scales, but I know that's not true, inverse psoriasis (what I think I may have) looks different. I've been given a rheumatologist referral, but I felt very depressed at being disbelieved right from the outset.
Anyone ever had psoriasis round the eyes? Or anyone had psoriatic arthritis before they developed a rash?
P.S. When I came home I googled images of 'psoriasis round eyes' and the photos that came up looked exactly like what I have... I think it's rare, but I'm pretty sure it can happen. What do you do when a doc outright refuses to believe what you have exists?
