Hi AnnMarie, So I'm not the only one to have psoriasis on my scalp. Thank you for posting this. I was beginning to believe I was on the wrong site. Keep me posted about the treatments.😶

I have been taking Otezla since end of Oct 2020. The psoriasis I have is only on my scalp. no cream or lotion ever worked very long but Otezla seems to wear it up usually. The only side effect has been in the beginning a little diarrhea but it subsided after a few weeks. I did lose a few pounds however if you want to all that a side effect. I think the otezla affected my appetite a bit. However after 10 months on this pill I would like to see better results. My dermatologist doesn't seem to want to change to anything else for now

I had side effects, mostly nausea. They got better with time, but never subsided. I am currently being changed from Otezla to Humira because I had too much breakthrough pain.

I started taking Otezla about 6 weeks ago. No bad side effects only a little diarrhoea which was manageable. My psoriasis is a lot better. Not anywhere as red and itchy as it was. I’m glad I started it. Hopefully my skin will be clear in the next couple of months.
