Is medical marijuana recommended for psoriasis treatment?
Hi, i have Psoriasis and it started small, but is spreading fast. i haven't tried anything for it yet. But it is always irritating my skin, and i think i might be catching arthritis too. Everyone i have talked to who has it said there doctors recommend Medical Marijuana? should i go for that too?
Hi, welcome to HCM, Psoriasis after long time affects joint and known as psoriatic arthritis. There is nothing like medical marijuana which is prescribed for psoriasis. I usually prescribe Tab methotrexate in weekly dose. super potent steroid mixed in salicylic acid and urea for local application. Emollient for whole body application. All these need medical supervision and titration of dose. Hope this is helpful. Thanks.
