Time to find another Gp. The inability to sweat could be caused be psoriasis but also several other conditions. I would want to get to the bottom of it.

Barry my cousin who also has psoriasis and used a cream called “Propoli” its a Greek word and its the queen bees honey or something like that (she explained it to me in Greek). She only used a few drops daily and her psoriasis is completely gone. Then she used from the same beekeeper a wax cream again from the bees to get rid of the red patches. I am bying it tomorrow and will see how it goes. I couldnt beleive my eyes when her P totally dissapeaqred.

Yes Jen they are drops and you can drink them also. And the topical balm is for the redness. Im going to buy it tomorrow because I was told of a beekeeper (I live on a Greek island) who only feede his bees their honey and not sugar like many do. Its pure organic. Good luck.

Welcome to Flaym, Barry! Me too I've tried lots of creams in my life. Now I don't use any medicated ones as my skin is calmer than it used to be and I'd rather not use them longer term really. I don't know about the sweating! I know that skin that has been repeatedly treated with steroid creams can feel different to the touch and may not sweat as easily... never tested the theory though as I don't have any large areas that I have had long term steroid use on, it is all on the small awkward areas like ears etc. The propolis sounds very promising! Thank you for suggesting!
