Hi you could try protopic ointment I use on face. It's says for exzema seb derm etc but dr and research articles say safe to use on sensitive areas and can be effective in psoriasis. It takes a while but 2 or 3 times a day might work. Dr has to give prescription but once you get check good ex I get mine at stop and shop grocery store for 40 dollars vs 60 or more with insurance. Good luck please try it just might help cant hurt it's not steroid dr says can use every day but it does work in seb derm and dr said can help psoriasis sometimes doesnt thin skin good luck God bless

Does anyone else have seborheic dermatitis on face ears and scalp they told me you can get it with psoriasis I am so depressed and down I feel totally overwhelmed worse is on face I feel defeated emotionally they keep giving me same meds nothing helping. They say stress makes worse but how can you not stress. I'm 59 and this is suppose to be a great time everyone says but for me everything flared really bad after soriatane seemed to spread on face and my hair is thinner to it's awful. Sorry to vent but no one I know has this and they just dont understand what it does to you emotionally. I even had 1 doctor say not to minimuze it but it's not that bad I've seen worse I was like you have to be kidding me same dr who said I shouldnt loose hair on 10mg soriatane hes never seen it at 25 and I asked him 3 different times but it shed like crazy and hes supposedly and expert. If course this depressed me even more and everything got worse. It was also around christmas time and he said was ok to have couple glasses of wine here and there wrong I read after you shouldnt drink on it. And hes supposedly an expert associated with the national psoriasis association. please everyone be careful who you go to if you get a bad feeling go with it. Wish I never took that medicine has caused me great distress. Thank you all for listening to my rambling having a really bad day all I do is cry it's awful. God bless you all wish they would find a cure it really causes a lot of physical and mental anguish. So many people are getting it too seems more and more. I pray my daughter does not get it. My mother and father didnt have it and my siblings dont have it it's a crazy disease
