Sometimes patience is needed during the treatment of psoriasis.
19-year-old Charlotte Agnew first noticed red spots appearing on her skin not long after she moved to university. The television student from Ellastone, Staffordshire gradually lost her self-confidence as people started staring in shock and confusion at her angry red skin, which started to crack and bleed. Charlotte was diagnosed with psoriasis, and tried a variety of different steroid creams and treatments, which she found tedious to apply. On top of that, they didn’t actually help her condition. While she learned to embrace her psoriasis – and began walking with confidence down the street with her limbs on show – she also discovered that it was lifestyle changes that made the most difference to her skin. Now at university in Cornwall, she enjoys swimming in the sea, finding that the saltwater soothes her skin – and being out in the sun has helped her spots fade.
