I have Psoriatic Disease: psoriasis (mild) with arthritis (severe). Now my sister is showing arthritis symptoms. She also has undiagnosed itchy flaky "stuff" in her ears. She has been to a rheumatologist, who has said that a diagnosis of "psoriasis" will nail a PsA diagnosis.
She went to an ENT doc about another problem. He looked at her ears and said "definitely psoriasis". He claimed to be an authority, because he has psoriasis himself.
Then she went to a dermatologist who said "Maybe psoriasis, maybe not" but would not commit even though she knew that another diagnosis hung on her opinion.
Questions for you:
Should my sis seek another dermatology opinion? Has anyone here ever had two derms give different opinions on their psoriasis?
Do you have psoriasis in your ears? Is there anything you think she should know about that?
This is really frustrating: sis, meanwhile is feeling awful. What a difficult disease this is to diagnose!
