Re: do tanning beds help psoriasis

please stay out of the tanning beds, I got malignant skin cancer from them. I also have psorasis and you would be better off getting some real sun in small doses to help that.

I would really not go with phototherapy for psoriasis.

Ask your doctor for a prescription for Taclonex. That's been the only thing that has worked for me thus far, it's brand new, just came out. I've had psoriasis for 10 years now, and it really has helped a lot.

Wow, sorry to hear that. How much time per week were you going?
