Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query, Scalp psoriasis can be controlled but there is no definitive cure. You can use salytar scalp solution. Apply it on your scalp, wait for around 3 hours and then wash your scalp. Do this on alternate days. You will get good relief in a month. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you

Hi, I am on cyclosporin for psoriasis. Started 1 1/2 weeks ago. Dose is low (150 mg) daily: I weigh 150 lbs. I feel fine but have noticed slight difficulty swallowing liquids and my urine is darker and poss a bit cloudy. I was prescribed by a dermatologist , my next appointment is in 6 weeks ( though have blood tests 2 weekly). My question is are these side effects a problem ie should I get in touch with doctor or are they ok. Also can you drink alcohol on cyclosporin. I can t find an answer definitively!

If these are all immune system deficiency caused, how can I stop them or other new problems?
