I think I’ve talked a couple of times about my psoriasis issues on Instagram, but it’s not something I really dive deep into here on my blog. I only have a mild case, but it’s enough of an issue to drive me crazy at times, which leaves me feeling helpless because I have no idea how to manage it. Mild, to me, is the occasional flare-ups in a few different areas on the body that are small in size. I get psoriasis patches on my elbows, knees, left ring finger, and the back of my head, which itched so bad one time that it caused me to lose hair in that spot.
I can’t remember when it started or what has caused it since I have had itchy skin issues for as long as I can remember. I felt like I needed to find answers and in my search, I discovered a cool app called Kopa for Psoriasis which is a platform targeted towards people with psoriasis.
What is Psoriasis?
How has Kopa for Psoriasis helped me so far?
The app has shown me insightful tips like what foods could be triggering my flare-ups, how to take care of myself even as a busy parent with psoriasis, as well as stress-relieving strategies that really work.
It’s also comforting to know that other people are out there experiencing the same problems you are. I can relate to so many people on the forum and it’s nice to build connections and learn new things from others.
I have also noticed that when I eat certain foods with processed sugar, it seems to make my condition worse. Stress is another big one since I am constantly stressed with everyday worries outside and inside of the home. Thankfully, I can put their tips to good use and hopefully lessen my symptoms every day.
