Hi, dear first let me inform you that there is nothing that could cure your disease but can be controlled, you can start oral cyclosporine available in market as PSORID solution in a dose of 3-5 mg per kg. Within a week you will get great results but keep your blood pressure and S. creatinine under check every 15 days. take care
