Likely not: The lesions you described do not appear to be from psoriasis. You may try some Hydrocortisone cream on them to see if it helps. If not , consult your doctor. I have seen this on some patients who have vitamin D3 deficiency and thus you should get a blood test to see if you are indeed low in this vitamin. ...Read more

I have psoriasis inside my ear so i use harder qtips to itch inside , when in press hard I feel popping and hear cracking, what is this?

I have psoriasis inside my ear so i use harder qtips to itch inside , when in press hard I feel popping and hear cracking, what is this?

Hard to say...: Can't say without looking into your ear, but you should NOT use Q-tips in your ears & NEVER press hard. Q-tips will surely irritate the plaques & make them worse, not to mention added risk of skin damage, impaction, infection. You should see your doc, since 1) cracking/popping noises should be investigated, 2) ear psoriasis deserves special attention due to paucity of effective drugstore remedies. ...Read more

I have psoriasis in my ear and it is inflamed, I am using synalar (fluocinolone) otic. I am in pain, what can I do to bring the swelling down, and relieve the pain?

I have psoriasis in my ear and it is inflamed,  I am using synalar (fluocinolone) otic.  I am in pain, what can I do to bring the swelling down, and relieve the pain?

Sounds like infected: The pain and swelling could be caused by a bacterial or other infection. Those symptoms are not usually caused by the psoriasis. An anti-inflammatory might help the pain and swelling, but i think it'd be best to get medical attention. You might need an oral antibiotic or other precription medication(s). ...Read more

Dr's, have scalp psoriasis above ears and rear scalp. Seen derm.4 times. Recent prescription topicort spray. Not working.Have HIV on meds. Any other rx?

Second Opinion: It may be time to get a second opinion from a new dermatologist. Other thoughts I have is that this is more than psoriasis, such as a yeast infection. There are more treatment options than topical products for psoriasis, but they are very expensive and can have lots of side effects. In my office we would probably talk about getting a second expert's advice next. ...Read more
