Thanks for posting question on HCM,
You are probably suffering from infected papules seen in psoriatic patients when they apply excessive potent steroids with out diluting it , it is called steroid induced Folliculitis
.you must take oral antibiotic like oxytetracycline
100 mg daily for 1 week, and apply Fucidic acid cream also.Take tab naprosyn 500 mg 1 bid for your joint pain. You must not leave psoriasis untreated kindly consult with your near dermatologist
or remain in touch with me.
Psoriasis is an genetically determined autoimmune disease
that affects the skin. It occurs when the immune system mistakes the skin cells as a pathogen, and sends out faulty signals that speed up the growth cycle of skin cells. Psoriasis is not contagious.There are five types of psoriasis: plaque, guttate, inverse, pustular, and erythrodermic. The most common form, plaque psoriasis
, is commonly seen as red and white hues of scaly patches appearing on the top first layer of the epidermis (skin). It is a chronic disorder which usually comes back and no treatment can permanently cure it.In chronic cases it involves joints as seen in your case.
Hope this will alleviate your anxiety
