I have psoriasis on my scalp and my eyebrows and behind my ears. However my brother is covered his entire body! He has seen skin specialists, attended hospital and tried every cream /ointment there is. Its destroying his life and I just can't give up, there has to be something out there that can help him?

Re: Psoriasis

Dear Annemarie,

so sorry to hear about your brother. I would suggest your brother would ask for Otezla tablets or biologic injections.

I hope you psoriasis is well controlled. Otherwise you can ask your GP or dermatologist for Daktacort ointment for your face and for behind the ears and for Etrivex shampoo for your scalp.

I hope this is helpful.
With Best Wishes,
