Got diagnoed in my fifties
I remember as a kid, seeing my uncle with his flaky head skin and white crusty patches on his neck. I used to think he never showered or was in general not a hygienic person. I was disgusted by that and afraid of him when he visits. Now when I grew up, I knew his pain when he had that sad look on his face when I used to refuse to be near of him. Little did I know, when someone in your family has it, you might have the genic readiness to have it too. I got Psoriasis just like my uncle and Now I know definitely how he felt. I was shocked because I thought I was hygienic and took care of my health in general, but looks like genes have another opinion. Now I'm in my fifties, and after visiting the doctor, he told me that mostly it peaks during this age, and it was caused because of a skin infection that I probably had when I wounded my head in a swimming pool. Living with such condition is unbearable, and there is no cure for it, only medication that can help reduce the intensity of the problem. I don't know if will ever get used to it, it so annoying!

Initial diagnosis?
How did you feel when you fiinally heard the news and everything was official? Were you happy? Worried? Personally I was a little relieved to finally put a name to what I had
