Looking For Psoriasis Friendly Hand Sanitizers

Looking For Psoriasis Friendly Hand Sanitizers

So I have pustular psoriasis on the palms of my hands and find that "normal" alcohol hand sanitizers cause flare ups. My new job requires me to use hand sanitizer frequently through out the day. I'm looking for any insight into "gentler" alcohol hand sanitizer or possibly non alcohol hand sanitizer that is still effective

Has Anyone Had Success With Methotrexate?

Has Anyone Had Success With Methotrexate?
