Allergist and Immunologist 's  Response
the newer studies in psoriasis tell the psorasisd is caused by chronic inflamation of skin by one or more foods we take daily
if you can get blood tests for specific antibodies for milk wheat potato chana egg rice nuts and common food and after elimination of food components you can start recovering from a few wk of withdrawl of foods
along with low dose weekly methotrextate 2.5 mg twice a wk is beneficial in these conditions for 6 months you continue along with elimination and can apply local antibiotic and antiallergic ointment on skin affected bd
