Unhappy Psoriasis, arrrgh!

I've had psoriasis since i was small but has never really bothered me until the past 2 years or so, it's totally getting out of hand and been going to hospital and given all sorts of creams and ointments and have also had uvb treatment twice which also hasn't worked.
Its all really getting to me now, that plus after stopping smoking about a year ago ive put on about 2 stone and can't get rid of it.
The doctors are totally puzzled as to what has set it off like this and because nothing seems to be working, does anyone know of any other treatments available other than creams etc & UVB?

Re: Psoriasis, arrrgh!

I have taken methotrexate for psoriasis and it really helps. Keep in mind that methotrexate is a very strong drug and needs to be taken under close supervision of a doctor (usually a rheumatologist). There are stronger medicines such as biologics - Enbrel, Remicade, or Humira. Talk to your doc.
