7 year old daughter diagnosed with Psoriasis
My seven year old daughter was diagnoses with psoriasis today. I knew she had the scalp kind. She's had it for a few years. She had a lesion so to speak on the back of her leg that's been there for several months, and no matter what she's tried, it won't go away. I've been thinking it's psoriasis (my dad has it really bad, and the lesion looks like his), but finally the doctor agreed and said it is psoriasis. She's being sent to a dermatologist about it. I want to cry, because I know the trouble my dad has with his and how bad his hurts and itches. I've been doing some research and am going to putting her on cod liver oil. Also, found that sunlight or uv rays are good for it to. I'm going to discuss a uv treatment with the dermatologist. Also, tar treatments are good. Any more suggestions? I'm open to any. I really worry about her being so young, but I know there are a lot worse out there that she could have, so I'm trying not to stress much. thanks for any input.
