...feeling hopeful Aidan @aidan2

I hope life is treating everyone well as we stay safe from Covid. I was on Stelara but due to a lay-off, I am without insurance. I am seeking alternatives. Does anyone have any recommendations that have worked for them for behind the ear psoriasis?

I have psoriasis behind and inside my ears, I get constant ear infections due to this. I first had psoriasis at 11 years on my scalp. Now I have it on my face and small patches all over my arms, back and chest. I use locoid cream for my face, betnovate scalp appln for my scalp and diavibet for other works but i have to persevere....

Keep on moisturising it I guess. My sister is also on stelara and also had to stop she's been using only virgin coconut oil and herbal ointments since she was told not to use topical creams.

Tracy, so you used diavibet for your ears? I need to look that up. Is that a prescription? Thank you for sharing

Thank you, Jane. I am trying to keep it moisturized and I am hopeful that I will have insurance in the next couple of months to be able to get back on Stelara.

I am not sure if the diavibet is covered under all insurances here in the USA, but I know it was one of the cheaper medications that I had to get when I was on so many of them. My doc, he is my favorite, knew I was without medical insurance and going through a divorce, etc..., but he would always hand me a bag full of samples to use until I had the money to get the prescriptions filled from my pharmacy. He tried to prescribe the least costing medications as well, knowing that I didn't always have the cash to get the meds right away. He was the bestest Doc ever, always looking out for me. Maybe your doctor could provide you with some samples?
