Diet changes and stress relief

January 23, 2013 — 11:23pm

I am 32 and have mild plaque psoriasis on my knees and my right foot. I have cut out spicy food and Diet Coke from my diet and can see significant changes.

I still smoke 5 cigarettes a day but hope to quit very soon. I cannot use Dovonex as it irritates my skin-so I just moisturize with Epaderm ointment and it works for me.

I have also taken up painting to calm me down when I feel life is getting stressful.
