Prescription Medicines Psoriasis
Psoriasis: There is no cure for psoriasis only control. There are prescription topical steroids. There are intralesional steroid injections. The biologics like Humira, Enbrel, Remicade, (infliximab) and Otezla are very effective at treating psoriatic arthritis and also the skin lesions of psoriasis. Patients with psoriasis are also prone to cardiovascular disease but the biologics help reduce this.See 3 more doctor answers

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.

Functional medicine: Yes, you need to identify and treat the underlying imbalances in the immune system and gut. Often psoriasis may be a manifestation of leaky gut and underlying food allergies or immune dysfunction related to intestinal dysbiosis. I'd recommending finding a medical doctor who specializes in functional medicine to help you in this process... Check out http://www. Functionalmedicine. Org/.

Very pricey and you need a prescription from your doctor to get them. Best luck!See 1 more doctor answer
I have psoriasis and amevive is a new drug that looks promising and will soon hit the uk. Will it be available on the nhs?
25% chance.: Amevive has come & gone in the usa. I compared it to reggie jackson: it either hit a home run or struck out. When it worked, it worked well, but it only worked about 25% of the time. The newer biologics (humira, stelara) work much more often, but I don't know if they are or will be available in uk. Perhaps a british physician can answer the nhs availability question.
I have psoriasis on my head and each medicine I take helps a lot (xamiol/elocom), but once I stop, the prosiasis comes back in days, how do I stop it?
You don't: Psoriasis cannot be cured. If you stop your meds, the skin condition will invarably flare.
Psoriasis: Immunomodulator drugs (biologics). Several immunomodulator drugs are approved for the treatment of moderate to severe psoriasis. They include, Etanercept (enbrel), Infliximab (remicade) and ustekinumab (stelara) & humira (adalimumab). These drugs are given by intravenous infusion, intramuscular injection or subcutaneous injection and are usually used for people who have failed to respond to traditional rx.

Do you have any advice for me on a medicine that will immediately stop the itching of my psoriasis?
See a dermatologist: No antihistamine will reduce itch from psoriasis. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is a sleeping pill: do not use except at bedtime. There is no cure but there are very effective treatments. Psoriasis is genetic. It is not your fault. Some prescription meds will aggravate it.See 1 more doctor answer
