    Default psoriasis

    does anyone here have psoriasis?

    http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-a...oriasis-basics

    i'm pretty sure that i have it too, only on certain parts of my body. i was just wondering if it was also affliated with lupus or not?
    i first noticed it around the time i noticed my SLE symptoms.

    My dx is Mixed Connective Tissue Disease - Lupus, Sjogren's, RA and psoriasis. My rheumy found the sore patches that I've had in my scalp since I was a teenager and called that psoriasis. She also thinks that this could be the cause of the strange, flaky sores that I would get. She also mentioned that some of my joint pain could come from psoriatic arthritis.
    I haven't had a scalp sore or one of those sores on my skin since she started me on Plaquenil!
    Hugs,
    Marla

    Yes I do. Right now, there is a patch flaring on my left eyelid in the crack that is driving me crazy. I also get it on my elbows, knees, scalp, under my eyes, fingers, toes, etc.
    As long as this body works, I am going to enjoy life to the fullest for each second of every moment that I can.

    The eyelids are the worst! such pain. I mean, it's not like I can stop myself from blinking!!!! behind the ears is second worst, but thankfully that is a good spot right now. Funny b/c the sun seems to help the psoriasis, but it just wipes me out for a day or so. The scalp ones are pretty embarrasing for me too. I feel like people are looking at me funny when I am scratching my head. Oh well, it feels better when I do. LOL!
