Hello.For treat local psoriasis "Daivonex" is the first therapeutic option, alone or in combination with corticosteroids " Daivobet " .If not is effective,another option is topical corticosteroids high power"Clovate "for a short period of tiempo.Si topical treatment is not effective should be using oral treatment with corticosteroids ( prednisone)
All listed drugs must be prescribed by your doctor.
PUVA treatment is applied to patients with generalized psoriasis, would not be suitable for your condition.I wish you good health.
