Hi All, It's so lovely to hear that i'm not the only one. I have been diagnosed with guttate (raindrop) psoriasis officially today. I'm 18, and it's severely affected my confidence, and makes me wary of what others may think of me; having experience of people mistaking the marks as "spots all over my body" which is not nice. I know I shouldn't suggest this, but both my mum & I both have the condition. And although medically you should say not to do the following, it's OK for an important occasion. Let's say you're about to get married or its prom or a birthday? I used the sunbed, 10 - 15 minutes would do. A day later they had almost vanished, or at least disappeared significantly enough to make me feel confident again. but be careful!
Side Effects: Both tacrolimus and pimecrolimus have demonstrated an excellent safety record. The most frequent side effect experienced is local burning and stinging; most patient experience relief with repeated application. A small minority of patients (~10%) experienced mild to moderate flushing with co-ingestion of alcohol but has not caused them to discontinue treatment. Additionally, eruptions of acne and rosacea lesions have been demonstrated in conjunction with these agents and should be monitored by your dermatologist. Other side effects include headache and mild flu-like symptoms.
