Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am dr.kakkar (dermatologist and venereologist). I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.

Treatment for psoriasis depends on the extent of skin involvement. It consists of topical therapy alone for limited skin involvement and both topical and systemic therapy for extensive skin involvement. Therefore i request you to kindly upload a few images so that I can judge the extent of disease involvement on body (arms, legs, chest, torso, scalp etc) and guide you further.

Thankyou! I suffer from chronic candidiasis, and although have been meds free for 6 years, I recently got vaginal thrush and have been treated with 100mg Fluconazole daily for 14 days. I also have psoriasis there, diagnosed years ago, which I found a natural cream for which usually works. However, the last few days it has been burning terribly, and the cream is not working/helping. I only finished the Fluconazole yesterday, so doubt its thrush. Can I try using hydrocortisone cream 1% or will that bring the thrush back?

Good Evening. Im suffering from what began as excessive facial hair growth since July 2013. It was very mild and not problematic initially. However it has now lead to painful excessive ingrown hair on my face. with warm compress and keeping the sites bacteria free the flares ups were greatly reduced. however, with in the past week the problem had spread to mid back. the his growth is so rapid accompanied by coarse unruly hairs I m in constant pain. i do not remove the hairs as i do not want to damage the follicle. i try to gently massage the hairs form beneath the skin. even still the skin regenerates at a rate that traps the hair beneath several layers of skin. by that time several hair have are imbed below the skin. i had switched to soy milk last july due to lactose allergies. i noticed the problem worsened around the time I discontinued getting depro vera and refrained from taking birth control It is very gross to look at i know it may sound trivial and should be the least of my concerns. i am also suffering from inflammation in the joints of my right thumb and had severe plaque psoriasis as a child. I do not take any medications prescribed or otherwise except a women s multi vitamin supplement. I was tested for possible thyroid disease several years ago results were negative. I need to get established with a new doctor, but am unsure which type of Dr. to see first. please advise. Thank you kindly for your help. I appreciate your time and care. Warmest Regards, Jenee

I am a 38-year-old male, 6 ft in height and 87 kgs in weight. I had been diagnosed with moderate scalp Psoriasis in late 2007, after which I went in for homeopathic treatment for nearly a year. There was a some relief and I discontinued treatment in 2009. In 2010 I developed reddish Psoriatic rashes on my chest for which I have been under no specific medication. Now in 2011, a semen sample analysis was done for me in connection with efforts for my wife's conceiving a second child. The results showed male infertility with my condition being termed Oligo Asthena Teraspermia (OAT) which is essentially a negative on all three factors of male fertility. I happened to learn that immunological disorders like Psoriasis contribute to Male infertility in at least 10% of the cases. Is this true? And should I see a connection between my two conditions?
