I am sure I am not alone in suffering from this condition, and, for those others that do, my sympathies.

I have had a flare up recently, and have had to take steps.

Normally I would go see the consultant dermatologist who would prescribe me some Methotrexate, however there are side effects of this powerful drug.
(Nausea, Potential liver and kidney problems, Headaches and a one must not father a child within six months of taking it as there are severe foetal abnormalities caused by the mutatitive properties of the drug on gamete production).

Michelle is dangling her biological clock in front of me and says she wants babies and she wants them now, so given that MTX is out, I have had to resort to more 'holistic' methods.

I have been oiling up with Nivea skin lotion, baby oils and vaseline.
I have been wearing lighter, looser clothing.
There has also been many visits to the tanning shop.

It occurred to me that were it not for the psoriasis, these would be the actions of someone looking to find some gay lovin'!

Once this bout clears up (it is a chronic condition but it only flares up every few years), I will at least look good with all the tanning, have great skin and look stylish, so the baby making should be a doddle!
I will never again mention that I was the poster of the One Millionth Lounge Post, nor that it was complete drivel. Dalek Dave
