Skin lesions, loss of sexual libido. Taking MTX medication. History of psoriasis. Treatment?
I have been suffering from psoriasis (gutter varicty) from 2000. I had taken MTX 10mg from 2001 for about 10 years. Now I do not take any MTX. Now lesion appears all over my body. I want to marry now. But I have no sexual power. I visit many Professor of, they gave me some medicine, but i have got no result. If you have any better treatment option I want to visit your office. I am waiting for your reply.
I can understand your concern. Firstly psoriasis is just a skin condition and it is not a hinderance to get married. Secondly as far as libido is concerned it seems more of psychological or stress induced. Psoriasis as such is not directly linked to libido.Try to remain stress free, do mind calming exercises as stress can also exacerbate psoriasis. There are multiple treatment options for psoriasis depending on its extent, severity, response to treatment and recurrence. Don't be disheartened, consult a good dermatologist and discuss your problems at length. Psoriasis is a recurring skin problem which can be kept in remission with proper treatment. Keep in touch with dermatologist even if the disease is in control. Usually recurrence occurs with stress, fever, use of wrong medicines and sometimes discontinuation of medicines. Take care.
