@psopsofine Hello psopsofine, thank you for opening this discussion. This is a great questions now that summer has arrived! Let me tag some other members who may have experience with this.
Hi everyone, how are you doing? Do you find that your hair growth or shaving irritates your psoriasis? How do you handle hair removal? Is there anything that you do or use to soothe the pain? Feel free to share here!

@psopsofine Oof I don't have this problem, but that sounds really painful! I guess that's one way that us men are lucky. Maybe someone else on here know of something you can do

I was wonder if any of you have been through this as well. My psoriasis isn't bad right now, but I have it on my legs and it's flaring up where my hair grows in and sometimes it gets infected. I can't shave because it just makes it worse... The only way I've been able to do it is with an electric razor. Now that summer is here I'm in a bit of a situation. What can I do to make it better? Is anyone else dealing with this? Is laser hair removal the only option to keep it growing in and irritating my psoriasis? Has anyone tried that too, while I've mentioned it?
