Relationships, friends & family
Do you have family members with psoriasis? I’ve had psoriasis for over 15 years and no one else in my family has it until I found out last week that my dad’s cousins have it. I feel like it’s strange because we’re so far removed in the family tree.

I think in my case no one has it, but some family members do, regardless we have it

Yes I’m 43 I’ve had it 20+ years. My brother is 40 and had it since he was 2. Our dad had it but to a much lesser extent. Our half sister (same dad) has mild p. My dads aunt apparently had it on her knees. Definitely a genetic link in our case although brother and I most affected.

My father had it very mildly on his scalp. but it never bothered him unless he changed shampoos or washed his hair too often!!

Yes, my grandma does. It's one of those things that you just have to live with and not blame them I guess

Hi there Aimee. Yes, I had two uncles whom had it but not severe and then all of a sudden it went into remission until they passed on.
My brother and sister has got P on their elbows only but not severe. It comes and goes all the time. I have P now for 27 years and I'm the only one whom had it severe. My P went into remission for about 10 years but due to emotional stress it came back. I was 90% covered at the time but thankfully only 5% on my legs now. P can skip a generation or two, maybe more for all we know and it doesn't matter how far you off from the family tree. You still have the same blood :)
