My daughter *only child* has psoriasis now for 4 yrs, out of the 4 yrs she has had one sevier case of it..it was BAD..loosing her hair around the temple area, and 99.9% of her scalp was covered in it...she was miserable, As I remember she had missed alot of school because of it. Now were working on yr 4 its getting to the point that she doesnt want to go outdoors because of the *flakes* she wont wear certain clothes. I bought so much otc **** just so she can get some relief, i gave her oatmeal baths, dzs of doc visits and every cream he gave her didnt help just seemed to thin the skin out in that area of the cream. I was able to get a referal to a dermatologist who is awesom BUT the waiting list is like 2 months. So I had went back to the family doc and he gave her a shampoo it helps but the next day BAM its back and im only supposed to use it every other day ARGHHH and she has thick butt hair. Takes me and g-ma a good hr to put this shampoo on. She's 13 and her image is everything. Im worried that she will fall into a depression and her grades will then start to drop and she is doing so good this yr. I feel so bad for her if it wasnt for me having it she wouldnt have it either. My case isnt half as bad as her's but if one parent has it good chance the child will get it. I did some reaserch in my family of medical history..turns out psoriasis runs in my dad's side of the family. my dad's sister has it and my dad has it but not bad I have it not too bad mostly around the hairline and a few patchs on my legs which i can handle that. But my daughter has/had the worse case of it in the family.
