The past two months have been a battle. Just about a month ago I was finally diagnosed with Guttate Psoriasis after a month of not knowing what this “rash” was. The first 5 pictures are from the day I was diagnosed and the last few were during our trip to Kalahari.
Guttate psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that is typically triggered by Strep (which I had in October). It may only show up once or it may become reoccurring. Either way, it sucks. Some days it’s practically gone and others it is pretty bad. If it continues to flare up I’ll have to change my diet completely. (Gluten free, little to no added sugar, and little to no alcohol)
The first few weeks of not knowing and even once I knew were difficult. I covered it with sweatshirts, my hair, and makeup as much as I could. Luckily I’ve become much more comfortable and accepting of it. Thank you so much to everyone who has been so supportive the past few weeks!! Also, I’m beyond grateful for my dermatologist and physician!!!
