Question: psoriasis

 rp777 - Sat Jul 07, 2007 11:25 pm

Hello I'm age 23, male, no surgeries except tonsils, acid reflux, no medication, and having problems with psoriasis. I didn't take them seriously for 6 months, and now I'm beginning to worry becuase I was told if it gets worse, it can become a skin cancer or something like that. I was told that there is a cream out there to remove psoriasis (cream product I found online), but not sure if it's safe. I'm looking for a solution to get rid of psoriasis. Can you help me?
Thank you.

User avatar Psoriasis is treated by prescription from your doctor so it would be wise to see a dermatologist or other health care provider. There are safe over the counter products to help relieve symptoms and you may wish to check out the National Psoriasis Foundation at They discuss many treatment options and are a reputable site with support for people who have this condition. Good luck.
