My husband was in the Navy for approximately 5 years and 11 months and was part of the Gulf War. He has since then developed psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis at a rapid pace. We are trying to file a claim with the VA but understand that it is hard to prove medical conditions happened while in the military, well psoriasis. We have traced back his family line and found no one that has either of these conditions. We have researched the disease and found that it could be triggered by exposure to multiple different things. My question is, does anyone have experience with this? The condition has not been clearly researched and no one really knows what causes it. Has anyone developed this condition after being in the military?
Thanks for your help.
