‘Summers were the worst but now I’m back in my shorts and back in the pool’
Diane Cooper, 51, an internet entrepreneur from Rushden, Northants
Before I discovered Soratinex, I’d reached a point where I thought, ‘This is it. I’m going to be like this forever’.
I had plaques mostly on my elbows and knees, some on my torso and back, and some behind my ears in my scalp. It had first appeared when I was 20 as small spots on my arms and legs. Eventually, I’d say it covered about 20 per cent of my body.
Sometimes, particularly after a bad flare-up, it would get me down because of the way people would look at me. I would be very self-conscious if I had to stand in a queue because people would stare at my scalp, and in the summer the same would happen if I wore shorts or short sleeves. Mostly, it was just embarrassing.
Over the years I tried all the usual steroid creams but I didn’t like them and avoided them whenever I could. They would work for a while but then the psoriasis would come back with a vengeance, worse than it was before.
Last year , I read about Soratinex on the internet and saw people were saying good things about it so I decided to give it a try. It didn’t work immediately but after about two weeks I began to see improvements. I persevered over several weeks and it cleared up my symptoms by about 90 per cent.
I just couldn’t believe it. It really is amazing. That was more than a year ago and while I still have some stubborn spots on my scalp, everything else that cleared up has stayed clear. I now just use Soratinex when I need a bit of maintenance so not only is it effective, but over time it’s economical too.
I’ve been telling everyone who will listen to try this treatment. It worked brilliantly for me. And this summer I was back in my shorts and short-sleeved tops, and I’ve even started doing aqua aerobics at the local swimming pool. That’s something I never thought I’d do.
