I have psoriasis in small patches - on my knee, elbow, a couple on my lower back and other smaller patches here and there. I can just about cope with this, but my scalp is driving me MAD! It started basically with just 2 patches, but now has just got worse and worse. The itching is a nightmare. I have been prescribed a Betnovate liquid for my scalp, and I also use a shampoo that is meant to help. For the rest of my body I have a Betnovate ointment and a Dovonex (? have I remembered that correctly?!) ointment for my knee.

None of this is working and I intend to go back to my doctor as it's getting worse and worse, and like I said my scalp is driving me crazy. I've also 4 small patches on my face - it, at the moment just looks like I have a bad complexion but I hate seeing my face in the mirror at the moment.

I wondered if anyone has any experience of any alternative treatment such as acupuncture?? Or any other advice really?

Re: Psoriasis

Mabes/for your scalp try Derma Zinc/w/clobetasol or Cormax.You would need a prescription for either of these meds.They are liquid and non greasy.Also one the stronger creams or onitment to try is Ultravate.Let me know how you make out.
