How can psoriasis be cured ?

I am 32 female and waiting on an appointment with a dermatologist who was referred by my family Dr after realizing that my mild exzema looks more like psoriasis , my question is, that I have these small sliver like things coming from my pores. they are hard almost like a white head but they are dry like a peice of glass. They are on my face, chest, breasts, pubic hair area and my inner thighs. I would like to know what it is, and how I can treat it.

Hello,
This may not be psoriasis.
in psoriasis you basically get a patch of red skin with silvery scales on it.
what you have sounds like reactive perforating collgenosis. Just the name is big, nothing to worry about. see your dermat and then let us know on this forum, what he has to say.

Hi my name is felicia, I have psoriasis, I ve had it since I was about 8 yrs old and I am 41 now this winter has been the worst year that I have ever had as far as new winter patches and lots of different parts of my body I ve never had it before. Also, this year my elbows and hands are particulary bad and my arms hurt, I have had surface pain associated with rawness and itching before but this is intense real pain inside. My elbows hurt so bad it brings me to tears sometimes, its hard to describe sort of throbbing and seems to vibrate down my arms, on both sides. My fingers hurt to but not as intense. Both arms are also going numb from right above my elbows to my tips of fingers to where my fingers will turn white and i have to massage blood back in there. Are these things all related is it because of my psoriasis or is there something else going on? Thank You for your time Sincerely, Felicia Bredl

A friend had psoriasis for over 20 years. Shje is now 57 years of age. 12 years ago she began to suffer from arthritis. Doctors merely said it was psoriatic arthritis. Over the last two years her kidney became diseased (stage 4). It was then that a doctor said she was most probably suffering from yeast/fungal infection. I was wondering if she could be treated for the yeast/fungal infection by way of starvation with saline drip and antifungal. Of course if this is possible it will be done in a hospital. Once the yeast infection is cleared, the kidney disease could be addressed. Your views under no obligation or lialibility please.
