Homeopath 's  Response
hello.. welcome to health care magic forum..
psoriasis is an auto -immune disorder.. one has to take internal medicines to ensure recovery...
taking steroids like omnacortil n other allopathic drugs will only help temporary..
and it will lead to further supression of the diseases.. only to aggravate later..
the best way to treat it is by using homeopathic medicines..
it takes time n patience to be healed..
do not use any topical creams.. for the itiching and dryness olive oil is best to use..
avoid harsh soap use a glycerine, moisture soap..
avoid direct exposure to sun rays, tangy things,
wear soft cotton clothes.. avoid synthetic n linen
wishing u good health..

Dermatologist Dr. Gaurang Krishna's  Response

are you sure that the kid has been correctly diagnosed as having psoriasis?

if yes, then I seriously doubt your dermatologist as omnacortil is NEVER given in this condition except for certain special situations. I suggest you to continue acrotac and stop omnacortil in a tapering way. See a good dermatologist as soon as possible. If you are from Delhi you may consider going to AIIMS or you may also consult me. If you are from outside delhi, you may send me the pics of the kid on
