Has anyone had success with Methotrexate?

Has anyone had success with Methotrexate?

If methotrexate has helped you what kind of psoriasis do you have and where on your body do you have it. I have it on my hands and feet. My dermatologist said it's the hardest to treat those areas. My insurance denied Humira until I try 3 months of methotrexate. I'm on 5 mg every two weeks. Just took my second dose. I'm experiencing headaches and fatigue. Still having flare ups with my skin.

Anyone have scalp psoriasis and also in ears?

Anyone have scalp psoriasis and also in ears?

I do not have anywhere else on my body. I cover my ears with my hair but when I have a bad flare up, it looks like I have dandruff. I use medicated shampoo for my hair and Mometasone Furoate Cream for my ears. The cream works pretty well but have to use it once a week or so. The bad part is if I get water in my ears, I get a really bad ear infection. Just wondering if there is anyone out there that has the scalp psoriasis and how they deal.

So I had my first dermatology appt and it went well. She diagnosed it as psoriasis and I need to see a rheumatologist to see if I have PsA. But my question is: does your psoriasis itch?

I just said oh, maybe it's something else. When she looked at it, it was instantly "oh yeah, that's definitely psoriasis". I even looked… read more
