Hello everyone. I am a 17 yr old girl (new to this!) and I've been struggling with eczema and, more predominately psoriasis for a lot of my life. My eczema has nearly died down now but I have bouts of psoriasis on my hands - it spreads to my fingers and makesmy nails uneven, and I always seem to have it on my thumb joints. As of today it has moved onto my chin which has really stressed me out about it. It is quite scaly with flakes of dead skin, and I get little bubbles which form often. The worst is when it becomes dry and then it cracks. Lots of people notice it and I wish I could find something that would stop it.. I have tried diprobase, eumovate, hydrocortisone etc and they either don't really make a difference or they just produce more of these bubbles. Any help would be fantastic - I see my GP periodically but never see any benefits afterwards. As I have noticed on other posts that diet is important, I eat a balanced diet with lots of dairy products, meats, vegetables, carbohydrates and maintain a healthy lifestyle running over 6 miles at least twice a week. Any help anyone?
