Psoriasis on my Penis - YIKES! - March 21st 2009, 09:09 PM

Hi Everyone!!

I hope you're having a super duper day!!

Lately - I've been especially stressed out. Like a lot of people - these days - I'm having money problems. Money itself is not the problem. The fact that I haven't got enough IS!! Oh well... I'm trying to work my way out of the hole I'm in. THAT - and a few other things - have really REALLY stressed me out. And when I'm stressed out I often get a patch of psoriasis ['sore-eye-a-sis'] in the middle of my chest. It's not too much and usually goes away in a day or two. Then it comes back and goes away again. But this time - psoriasis has 'attacked' my PENIS. And I have to admit - I'm upset. Although harmless [For the most part] and not even slightly contagious - it doesn't LOOK very good. In fact - it LOOKS like my penis has an STD. Psoriasis - in case you didn't know - is NOT a sexually transmitted disease. Some believe it is just one of the signs of an over-active immune system. Skin cells are being created at an alarming rate and building up on the effected part of the body. The type of psoriasis I have on my penis is called 'Inverse Psoriasis'. It's just red and looks like what your skin would look like if you tore off a scab from a wound. [If that makes sense] The psoriasis that's on my penis doesn't scab up OR [which is common with most cases of psoriasis] flake off. [At least not so you - or I - would notice] Usually - when someone has psoriasis on the penis - it's on the head. But sometimes - as it is in my case - it's on the shaft. About half of my shaft has the red patches. I hope it goes away - and stays away. [Something that psoriasis often does - no matter where it is on the body]

Why am I telling you all of this? Well... who ELSE am I going to tell!! But not just for that reason - I'd love to know if any of YOU have ever had - or presently have - psoriasis on your penis. [Or any where else on your body]

Have a great day!!

Hey Craig.

I'm sorry that you suffer from psoriasis. Thankfully, I don't have psoriasis and I haven't had it before (That i'm aware of)

I've never personally suffered from psoriasis, but I have a friend who got it all down her back while we were doing huge exams last June. It was nasty.
I think she got some sort of cream for it.
Other than that, I don't know anything about it.
Hope it goes away soon though! It's rather unpleasant.

I know you have looked at this, more than likely, but perhaps it will help you:

Link - National Psoriasis Foundation - Treatments
Link - Genital Psoriasis

I've never had psoriasis, but a man I worked for at one time did and he had a similar problem to you. He had to try to work on preventative measures and to isolate incidents when they appeared to keep it from doing damage.
