What is good over-the-counter treatment for psoriasis?

No such animal.: Unless you have very, very mild psoriasis - which might respond to Hydrocortisone cream - nothing available over the counter in the us is going to make much of a dent in your psoriasis. Sorry, but I've been doing this for 30 years and have yet to see an otc product work, other than skin cap, which turned out to have an illegal steroid in it. See a dermatologist; don't waste money on otc treatments.

What is the best over-the-counter treatment medicine that heals open wound faster?

What is the best over-the-counter treatment medicine that heals open wound faster?

Wound healing: Moist wound healing is crucial for the proper environment to heal most wounds. Therefore, if you don't have a allergy and your wound is not suboptimal (dirty, contaminated, has foreign bodies, too large to heal, or you have poor wound healing conditions like heart disease, venous insufficiency, or diabetes)- simple things such as Bacitracin would be sufficient. See your md for more details.
