From this study (3 days ago):
Psoriasis in the groin area. Enlarged lymph nodes when the Psoriasis is flared up.
From this study (1 month ago):
since taking sertraline i have broken out in small spots of psoriasis on legs, waiste and stomache
From this study (2 months ago):
I believe the only change to my diet or drug usage was 6 months on sertraline. I am going to wean off the medication and hopefully the skin will improve. I have psoriasis in my family but have never experienced it until last year and it is worsening.
