I have psoriasis in my thighs, neck, and arms. Some days it's more noticeable than others, and my legs aren't too bad (it's not as noticeable as the rest). Some days it almost looks like fresh burn marks or something. People have asked about it before, so I know that people are noticing it, but it's not like most people would come right out and say "wow, that's gross". So I'm wondering if people think I'm uglier because of it.
It looks like this, only my patches aren't that big:

I'm darker skinned and I have eczema so it tends to blend in with my skin and many people don't notice.
When I was smaller I was self-concious about it especially in the summer when everyone was wearing shorts and stuff. I think my first time wearing shorts to school was when I was 17 lol. and when I did people were like wow why have you never shown your legs before there nice.
Its not so bad and people unless there my close friends don't notice to much unless there observing my body parts...like arms legs...its gotten a lot better I guess it gets that way as you grow older.
I have had boyfriends in the past they don't care ...they usually ask if its contagious and once they find out its not were cool.
It doesn't make you ugly, just unique in a way I guess. We rock skin inflammation.1
