Pregnancy and Psoriasis :(

I have always had psoriasis on my scalp (mildy, it comes and goes)and a couple patches here and there which I've been able to treat with medicine from my dermatologist. I am 7 weeks pregnant and I notice the psoriasis symptoms are worse! My scalp really itches, etc... I went to my dermatologist and he said the safest thing to use would be a 1% Hydrocortisone cream over the counter but that it probably wouldn't be as effective as the other medicines. So far this stuff desn't give me relief. DOes anyone else out there have psoriasis and who is also pregnant that can give me some advice on how I can get relief? I'm VERY desperate!!! Thanks!
