Hi Ann,

Thanks for sharing that article. I have psoriasis in my family. My father and older sister used to get it on their eyebrows and elbows and knees but my younger sister has it all over her body and gets injections. I have been lucky and only get hives. My mother and brother get eczema. My question is that I have had mtDNA Full Sequence and have sent for the Familyfinder test at FTdna would one of these tests show if I have the PSOR1 & PSOR2 regions?
