Elidel

Elidel

I currently use elidel cream on areas of my body as prescribed, at the same time, I suffered sinus infection, after 1 week of no anti biotics, before I went to the doctors, I contracted a chest infection which spread to my lung, I was in hospital for 1 week on a drip to fight the infections.
I dont know if this cream was to blame, having asthma as well did not help in the breathing department.
Im now fine again, but will give Elidel cream a break for a while.

How Do You Deal With Scalp Psoriasis?

How Do You Deal With Scalp Psoriasis?

I have severe psoriasis on my scalp, and so far nothing has helped. I've tried medicated shampoo, and oil drops like betamethasone, but my scalp is still peeling off all over in huge thick chunks. It becomes very painful, sometimes bleeds or oozes, and "heals" with incredibly tight skin similar to feeling a swim cap suctioned and pulled back on your head. Such large (circumfrence and thickness) pieces come off with hair that I have bald spots accumulating particularly on the back top of my head.

Last year, I started a journey, not advised by many. I stopped all medications, including ointments, and mtx, completely. Result. From around 20% coverage, it increased to 90% in less than 6 months. I was adamant, that I will find a way, to cure… read more

Could be lichen stratios, probably spelled the 2nd word wrong it means line, I believe. The reasons those meds may work is because they are also anti inflammatory.
