My son was diagnosed as having psoriasis when he was 12 years old. It was indeed heartbreaking for us to know of his condition. If you have one pimple on your face that made you feel ugly, try to multiply that feelings times many many lesions all over your body that are red, scaly, itchy and leave a trail of dead skin wherever you go; that is what my son has to suffer.

According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, "Psoriasis is a not-yet-curable disease that begins in the immune system but is revealed by a dramatically increased number of skin cells in the top layers of the skin… A malfunction in the immune system causes skin cells to regenerate much more quickly [than normal]—every three to four days. As the skin cells accumulate, they form scaly areas of skin called plaques that appear red and raised.

Apart from having to deal with the physical discomfort of the disease, he has to also cope with the emotional impact of it. When he meet new friends, they often have the misconception that the skin disease is contagious. I can see my son being hesitant to even reach out to shake someone's hands, fearing that that person will recoil from him. He wears long sleeves shirts and pants, even in hot weather, just to hide from stares of people.

My doctor told me that even those close to the disease can sometimes misunderstand it. "Every single day I have very well-educated parents [of patients] who come in and say, 'Talk to them about their diet,' and I'll say, 'Didn't you just hear what I said? This is a genetic, immune-mediated disease. Diets will not help. You cannot get this because you eat too much chocolate or pizza.

As a result of the misconceptions many people have about psoriasis, patients are sometimes advised to try unorthodox remedies by nonhealthcare professionals. People give a lot of backseat advice. They'll tell me not to eat meat or to just get rid of the stress, as if it were that easy. There's a lot of stab-in-the-dark stuff that people are willing to try because it's such a frustrating condition.

I became very excited and hopeful when I stumble upon OLIVENOL™ plus+ at my local pharmacist. My son has been taking it for a few months and have shown improvement. At least the flaring episodes is under control, and he experience much relief from itchiness, and the skin looks less red.
