I have PsA but not the skin condition, there's a family history of both. Do all patients with Psoriatic arthitis develop the skin condition?

Can someone please advise on conditions/diseases that have multiple skin involvement (psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema all at the same time)?
Unclear question.: Do you mean whether one can have (atopic) eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis at the same time? Since eczema is used loosely, it may mean a skin rash including allergic contact or irritant dermatitis, then the answer is that it can exist with psoriasis or atopic dermatitis (the latter actually increases the risk in developing contact dermatitis).

Yup.: osteoarthritis, or "OA" is a common maturational change of the skeleton, usually with aging or history of repetitive trauma. So this can happen to anyone- even people who also have RA, or rheumatoid arthritis, which is an autoimmune condition that has somewhat different presentation, blood test results, and treatment. Even folks with RA get older, and we do often see a mixed pattern of arthritis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have ra. Is it necessary for me to take my meds once over a flair up? All the meds have a lot of side affects & pose more risk the longer you take
Risks and benefits: It depends on how often and how severe are your flare-ups. If they are frequent or severe, it would be better to remain on the medications to decrease both frequency and severity and prolong the development of RA complications. It sounds like your symptoms are either or both frequent and severe because you need 2 potent medications to treat your ra. Good question for your rheumatologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
