Something tells me nobody from Abbott Laboratories, the makers of the psoriasis drug Humira, will be approaching me to be their spokesmen. This photo shows what my hand looks like on the 43rd day of being on the Humira. I do not see any improvement.
I’m scheduled to take my final Humira shot this Sunday, June 21. After that, I have to be seen by my dermatologist before continuing with it. The problem is, she’s booked up till July 20. I would find it hard to believe she would continue having me take Humira. Even if she does, it would mean going at least a month between doses.
That’s probably not good.
Take my advice and don’t get a skin disease. Psoriasis is not a skin disease, it’s an autoimmune disease, but the medical community insists that dermatologists treat it. The problem is too many dermatologists dedicate a good portion of their practice to elective cosmetic procedures.
It means that if you have a legitimate health issue, and you need to be seen by your dermatologist, he or she may be too busy injecting botox into wrinkly foreheads to see you.
