Hi there, biologics are receptor-targeted therapies that are usually only given when there is a poor response to topical therapy, UVB phototherapy, PUVA or systemic therapy. It can also be prescribed in cases where psoriasis covers 10-15% of body, or if there is a negative impact in quality of life.

Biologics are a range of medications which lower the immune system and target specific genes I've had a range of biological medications infliximab, humiera, etanercept and am currently on ustekinumab injections together with mycophenolate mofetil immunosuppressant tablets. I've had severe psoriasis & arthritis for 26yrs since I was 11. I have tried every cream imaginable as well as puva, uvb & the tablets & biologics, I'm currently waiting to find out if the NHS will fund me trying a brand new biologic which has just been licensed.

We are still looking for people from Manchester! Email lisa@britishskinfoundation.org.uk for more info.

I have suffered with server eczema since I was a baby I'm now nearly 30. From the age 23-27 it seemed very clear but the past year its been bad again and I'm struggling for answers doctors don't seem to want to know. It appears my tolerance levels for allergies is a lot worse and is having dramatic affects with flare ups.
