At 8-years old, I was diagnosed with psoriasis. I was devastated for a lot of reasons. The shampoo and soaps for my skin smelled like an old tire and were sticky! The topical solutions were either greasy and ruined my clothing and my image, (who wants to go to school or work with oily smelly hair?!) or burned my skin as if it was on fire. Oral medications were expensive, and the injections hurt!
