I am a 50 year old woman.
I have had Plaque Psoriasis since I was 7 (43 years), and inverse psoriasis for 15 years and eczema for 8 years.
For at least the last 10 years I have had high eosinophils, and Creatinine levels but never high enough to trigger concern. However in May it nearly tipped over and then in Oct and Nov it went above range. As it happens I have felt pretty rotten for around 18 months. The Psoriasis has also got worse in this time.
The GP is now looking at the levels, according to the Nurse, but the GP has not contacted me directly yet.
What I would like to know, as I cannot find the info, is, which comes first - the psoriasis or the eosinophils?
I have tried to treat the skin problems but it the psoriasis starts to improve then stays at a plateau - I have only been given mild steroid for it, even though in my youth under different GPs, I had acute treatments of strong steroid which did work. Is the GP being too conservative, should I ask for a stronger steroid on the psoriasis, and if I clear it up, do the eosinophils also go down?
The reason I ask this is because I know eosinophils can be high with many other conditions, and I have been feeling really rough for so long.
I do have fibro, but this IS something else.
