I wonder if anyone else is in a similar position to me.
Psoriasis only started last May when I was 73. I wonder why it suddenly started at that age. Now various treatments are having little effect

I'm determined it won't ruin mine. Still hopeful that treatment will clear it or at least give me some control. Keep smiling mike

What treatment are u on

Enstillar spray for my scalp, Betamethasone valerate clioquinol cream, followed by betnavate ointment for my legs. The cream and ointment seems to calm it for a day or so then it reerrupts a bit further over. At least it stops any itching 😀

Hi Croquetmike, depending on the medications you might be taking, have you tried taking turmeric? It's a wonderful anti- inflammatory, but you have to take the kind with black pepper in it. It's not the only thing I do, but I find it helps in healing the inflamed, red & puffiness. I have a lot of it all over my body, so it takes time :) I also try to eat an anti-inflammatory diet (I'm not perfect at it, though :)). Cutting out soda and sugary things makes a difference too. Good luck to you :)
