Any Idea How Long Before Psorasis Clears Up

Any Idea How Long Before Psorasis Clears Up

I've had psorasis for about 6 weeks now, all over my body its quite bad been using tar to bath in twice a week, cortisone cream but still not clearing...any other ideas of what can help clear it up & how long does it usually take before it does clear up?

It may never fully clear up - thats the sad part about psoriasis. You need to go to a dermatologist and find out about the medications that are available to you that may help you clear. Topicals are not going to do that for severe outbreaks.

If you live anywhere near the sea go and swim in the water every day.

I have been using Daivonex ointment for years. it isn't a steroid ointment. Have started a treatment of Humira which after 30 odd years has totally cleared it up as well as my Psoriatic Arthritis.

If you are a new psoriasis patient, please find a good dermatologist in your area and ask about oral or biologic treatments as opposed to only lotions or creams. Nothing will cure it but many options to keep you feeling much better.
