I would definitely get in contact with a Dermatologist. They can prescribe something that will actually work. Whether it’s a cream, steroid pill, or maybe even something that would be inject-able. I was on Enbrel…which is a shot I would give myself. It completely cleared my skin within a couple of months (over half my body was covered in psoriasis).

10 Facts about Psoriasis

  1. One belief considers psoriasis as primarily a disorder of excessive growth and multiplication of skin cells. The infection is simply labelled as a fault of the epidermis.
  2. One school of thought sees the disease as being an immune-mediated disorder in which the rapid reproduction of skin cells is unrelated to factors produced by the immune system.
  3. Psoriasis comes about more often in dry skin than oily or well-moisturized skin, and specifically as a result of an external skin injury such as a scrape or cut.
  4. To prevent dry skin and cut down on psoriasis symptoms, it is sensible to not use shower scrubs, as they not only damage skin by leaving tiny scratches, they also scrape off the naturally occurring skin oil.
  5. Although anti-inflammatory treatments could relieve indications of the disease they do not solve the underlying affliction and may not be the preferred option for cure.
  6. There may be severe variation between patients in the effectiveness of specific psoriasis treatments and, as a result of this, dermatologists often use a trial-and-error approach to working out the most appropriate treatment for their patient.
  7. It has long been proven that daily, short, non-burning exposure to the sun is known to clear or improve psoriasis.
  8. Psoriasis is frequently a lifelong problem; there is currently no cure but numerous treatments can help to control the symptoms that affect the victim.
  9. Psoriasis might become worse over time but it is very difficult to predict which patients will go on to develop extensive psoriasis or those in whom the disease may appear to go away.
  10. The scaly patches caused by psoriasis, that we call psoriatic plaques, are areas of inflammation and excessive skin production around which skin swiftly accumulates.
