    Any bright suggestions for a client suffering from Pustular Psoriasis for the last 10 years.

    50 year old woman, constitutionally fit and well, no medications at present. Has tried all forms of treatment to no avail.

    Only manifests itself to both feet, plantar and borders.

  3. Yes Joe, steroids, prednisone, you name it, and the last 6 months homeopathic tx, no old wives tales???
    She is part Maori, great skin and looks after herself.
     
  4. Actually I think a bit of stress may be in there, long hours in retail?

    Carleen,


    I would be interested to hear if the condition resolves and with which treatment.

    "steroids, prednisone, you name it, and the last 6 months homeopathic tx"...
    Would you mind listing exactly what has been tried, if you get the chance.

    Here are two quite opposite suggestions for your patient.

    One is to try drinking organic carrot juice, its a healthy option that won't do her any harm anyway.

    Also some information from the Total CPD Ltd Core update in Dermatology.

    Hi
    I have a patient with longstanding pustular psoriasis who has just undergone a series of PUVA therapy with wonderful success.
    He is able to return for more treatment if it recurs , and one tiny patch has, but he may actually buy a unit for use at home.

    Regards
    Cornmerchant
