Hi everybody,

I’ve been diagnose with psoriasis fairly recently and my dermatologist did gave me a general overview of possible psoriasis triggers, but what I’m noticing now is that I have more breakouts few days before I get my period. I still follow all other recommendations and am trying to avoid stressful situations, but I still get a very bad outbreak each month.

So, my question is can female hormones that trigger the period also affect psoriasis? I do get very bad PMS symptoms almost every month and maybe it’s the stress that’s affecting the psoriasis and not the hormones. I was wandering did anyone here with psoriasis noticed that hormonal impact on psoriasis?
