Hi Everyone, I put my 'story' of Psoriasis on a week or so ago,

I have now had 4 injections of Taltz over a 4 week period,

the last 2 weeks the transformation is nothing short of amazing,

From being approx 90% covered in flaky, itchy, Painful raised rash,

bright red, and my scalp was disintegrating and taking my hair with it.

I am probably now down to 20-30% coverage, mainly my ankles down,

my fingers, and a bit still on my scalp.

The only thing on the down side is that I developed severe infected shingles,

which possibly the single post painful experience ever.

c0-codamol, max strength, anti-B's, and a virus inhibitor made it just about bearable,

it's easing off a bit now but still need the painkillers at 3.00am , after the bedtime lot wore off.

Hope some/any of this info is useful
