Plaque Psorasis

Plaque Psorasis

My dermatologist did a scalp biopsy on me and my results came back as Plaque Psoriasis. What medication has helped you all? I had double pneumonia from Covid in August and it caused my psoriasis to flare up bad.

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

What More Can I Do?

What More Can I Do?

Been to the doctor 2x in the last 2 weeks. Dermatology this past Monday. Diagnosed as severe psoriasis. I’m currently on Humira & thyroid medication. Tried prednisone & stronger steroid cream. Nothing is helping. The skin on my hands, knees, legs, arms & feet are peeling away at a rapid rate. This is extremely painful. What more can I do or try?
