hello all!! i was wanting to touch on the psoriasis part of psoriatic arthritis in this forum.
Strep throat as a flare-up trigger
as some of you might know, strep throat can lead to a psoriasis flare up. i'm currently dealing with a MAJOR flare up. i've had strep throat before (might i add, i had it twice back to back) which led to a flare up. that was many years ago. with some sunshine
, patience, and medication, i cleared up that flare in the course of a few years. my skin was the clearest it had been in a long time before i came down with strep throat 3 weeks ago... now i am waking up with new spots
daily. i've gotten a referral to an ENT specialist who will hopefully consider me a good candidate for a tonsillectomy.
How has strep throat affected you?
i'm curious to know what is your experience with strep throat? have you had a tonsillectomy? did it help with your psoriasis? any comments are appreciated!!
