    I could be misunderstanding how this stuff works, but my understanding was that I likely "had" psoriasis before it flared up. You can have it without having the physical symptoms of it.

    I'm not saying that I didn't have psoriasis, got the vaccine, and then had psoriasis. I'm saying that it sounds like I might have had it the whole time, but with no physical symptoms, and then the vaccine caused those symptoms to flare up. Again, not saying that for sure happened or anything. Just saying it sounds like a possibility.

    And if I already had psoriasis, maybe the flare up would have happened eventually anyway, even without the vaccine. But there's no way of knowing if that's the case or how long it would have taken. It doesn't matter either way, because here we are. I just thought it was interesting that the two things may be connected, and I hadn't even thought of that up to this point.

    As for the "expert opinions," cool. As a young, healthy individual, I probably would have taken my chances and been absolutely fine.

    If you had Moderna vaccine you’re quite a bit more like to have the psoriasis flair up too

    I don’t think anyone that hasn’t got the vaccine is now going to get but if you’re a male under 40, don’t get Moderna go with Pfizer

    Well, until today I assumed I’d probably had it it but didn’t know for sure, but labs came back from a doctor’s visit and confirmed it. Read the other day though doctors believe basically alll Americans have had it.

    How is it known the antibodies were not triggered by the vaccine?

    Wife tested positive Tuesday. I’ve tested negative twice a day every day since.

    I think there are specific antibodies not targeting the spike. So as long as you had an mRNA vaccine I think they can see the difference.
