Skin sheds when wet?

When my skin gets wet, like bathing, showering or getting caught in the rain, I really shed anywhere I get my body wet. Does anyone else experience this?

    Yep, my feet are the worst but I find it easier to buff them, slather them with coconut oil & put some socks on.

    Hi @cchappo! YES! I absolutely get this too. I’m not sure it’s that the water is actually making me shed, but that when you get wet it’s suddenly easier for the dead psoriasis skin to slough off. Oh man, that sounds gross (but I secretly find it so satisfying to rub all the dead skin off). I’ll stop now before I come across as more weird than I already have…
