It has been 9 years since I had psoriasis, sad to say that there is still no cure for this skin disease but it is not contagious. It is really a struggle for me to accept that I have this because there is no one in the family who has psoriasis so I still have no clue where did I inherit this.
Two years ago when I started to feel depress because it is all over my body, I really feel so sad because I am doing everything just to prevent the flare up, I have tried all the topical medications and even phototherapy but there is no improvement. Having psoriasis is not easy because the medicines and treatments are not cheap.
But I still thank God for giving me strength to go on and making me realize that I am not alone. It is true that I am not alone, for the past few years, all I thought that I am the only who have this in the Philippines, thank God that I was able to join Asian Psoriasis Club, where I met other people who have psoriasis. It gives me relief that there is someone who can really understand my situation.
So when I heard that there is Fun walk on October 20, 2010, I did not think twice because I really want to be part of this and show the world that Psoriasis is not contagious.
