What should I do?

Hi! My name is Caitlin and I have been dealing with psoriasis on my body since 2010. I mostly have it on my scalp, but the most painful area where I have it is unfortunately my vulva/inner labia. It’s hurts all day when I have to sit for work and most definitely hurts after any kind of sexual activity. I just recently spoke with my dermatologist and was tested so that I can be put on Methotrexate, but after learning a lot about that drug through this app - I am having major second thoughts. My health insurance is piss poor because I have to get it through the Marketplace due to being an independent contractor so the Methotrexate pill is the most cost effective option.

I almost would rather try a diet change before I put myself on this drug that causes these horrible side effects so I’m writing this post today for advice on which foods to try to avoid from now on and where I can go from here? I need relief so bad, but I refuse to go on a drug that will put other parts of my body in pain. I honestly don’t feel like my psoriasis is bad enough to start a drug regimen of that intensity.

Please help ♥️ and thank you in advance! #Psoriasis #Methotrexate #nutrition
