I've had psoriasis as long as I can remember and tried numerous treatments, including UV light and various steroid creams, with little or just temporal positive results. The medication side effects, lack of long-term improvement and lack of progress in medication has just made me unhopeful anything will ever work and so haven't tried anything prescribed by a GP for a long time. My psoriasis has worsened with time and it now covers all my body, including my face, clearly visible to anyone. It can be a very emotionally debilitating condition, but I think my autism actually helps in this respect because I'm able to ignore it and don't expose myself to the same social pressures an NT probably experiences. Though I am suffering from depression and insomnia and have been for a long time, typically because of my poor social skills - I wonder if this is aggravating the psoriasis? Are you in a similar situation?
