Psoriasis

Another day, another cold with Psoriasis 

Another day, another cold with Psoriasis 

Let’s get something out there straight away. Yes I have a cold, no it’s not man flu. I’ve said this before, if you think man flu is bad try psoriasis flu. Okay so it’s not quite flu but even a cold when you have Psoriasis makes a cold all the more annoying.

About a month ago I went into work with a slightly tickley throat and thought I may have a cold coming on. By 11am I think it was in was on my way home with a banging head, sore watery eyes, ear ache and with little energy. That’s how quick a cold can  attack when your immune system is busy fighting something pretend infection. I don’t mean Psoriasis  is made up, one of the explanations of Psoriasis is that your body thinks your skin is under attack, hence the rush of blood cells to the skin and increased growth rate to repair it. Or as I like to put it “I’m not a hypochondriac, my skin is”. 

So while my body is busy fighting something that isn’t there, something like a mild cold can become a bigger issue if not treated quickly. So that day I totted off home, dosed up and spent nearly three days in bed so by Monday I was fit for work again. 

Added to this my skin flared up so I auvergne been having to up my treatment of that since then as well. Over the last week it has been looking a lot better and I’m getting it back under control and then, like I shouldn’t have expected it, I have a other cold. I felt the signs yesterday and started dosing up straight away and now panic sets in. Will my skin react to this cold? Well so far no, it actually less itchy than it was yesterday.

This kind of goes back to my thoughts that psoriasis never does what you expect it to do. It can react to situations or it may decide it can’t be bothered. The fact it hasn’t flared yet does not stop me worrying that it might just be a delayed reaction though. So the treatment of both the cold and my skin is increased. 

Years ago this was a real pain. I would moan and groan and complain that I have to look after too illnesses at the same time. When a cold leaves me with little energy I don’t want to have to worry about my skin too. 

Now, even though this may seem like a moan, it’s just something I do. I get on with it, “chin up”  as they say. Honestly this isn’t really a moan, more a get it off my chest, much like I wish I could get this cold off my chest.
