For years I would hear, “When you get pregnant, your psoriasis will go away”.
With one doctor even presenting the possibility that it may completely go into remission once I fell pregnant.
Unfortunately, these were neither the case for me and over the years I have seen many women share similar experiences to me. Typically when you fall pregnant there is a shift in your immune system that prevents your body from rejecting the baby.
As Melbournians, surprisingly we have enjoyed many warm to hot days as we are approaching the middle of Summer. Along with the warmer weather, a change in diet and lifestyle habits usually happens this time of year.
Late nights, more social events which leads to a diet rich in BBQ meats, salads, cold drinks, alcohol, sweets and perhaps an overall increased amount of food.
For some with a robust constitution, this is perfectly fine, however for many, signs that the “Summer Time” diet and lifestyle is having an impact on your health starts to sneak in.
