I have had psoriasis since age of 11 i am now 40, i have been through majority of lotions and potions throughout the years, puva was very effective at times of guttate breakouts, i started methetrexate oct 2016 as i was fed up of the breakouts in between dermotology appointments, it took a while to work but 14 mts on my hair has drastically thin and im having outbreaks still, the hair loss is affecting me badly im consideribg a wig , don't know if to stop drugs as i scared of a bad outbreak, anyone know of a better alternative please !
Yes, I am afraid I have suffered from hair loss and thinning as well. Methotrexate has helped my RA symptoms considerably, but the side effects are immense. Personally, the hair loss has hit me hard, as it is such a blow to one's already shaky self-esteem. Vitamins specific to hair growth may help. Other than that advice, believe me, I sympathize with you.
