Does anyone experience liquid leaking from plaques during flares?

Hi, my name is Perrilee. I am new to the group. I have been searching for a support group in my hometown but can’t seem to find one. I have flare-ups frequently. Along with the pain, the psoriasis is so bad, it’s all over my entire body, except for my face.

During flare-ups, the psoriasis is so bad on my legs that they start leaking liquid. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this? The more lotions, or creams that I use, the worse it gets. I just have to let my legs leak and dry up.

    Hi Pfarbro, thanks for your question. Most psoriasis plaques are dry and scaly—have you mentioned this symptom to your doctor? I found this article on our sister site, AtopicDermatitis.net, about weepy sores: https://atopicdermatitis.net/wet-sores-wet-eczema/ and it makes me wonder, especially that you mention that it gets worse with lotions (https://atopicdermatitis.net/living/moisturizing-eczema-prone-skin/). It might be worth a conversation.
