Hi,

This is the common variety of psoriasis called plaque psoriasis. It is characterized by thick red patches of skin, often with a silver or white scaly layer. Psoriasis patches can range from a few spots of dandruff like scaling to major eruptions covering a large area. Most common affected area are lower area of back, knees, elbows, legs, palms, soles, scalp and face. Oil 777 is a moisturizer and gives relief in itching, thickening and dryness of skin. Calpsor is a combination of clobetasol-a steroid and calcipotriol- a form of vitamin D used to treat psoriasis.

Besides, the treatment you are taking, a few things can also be done to give relief to your symptoms. Stress management, eating a healthy diet, vitamin A and vitamin D supplements, avoiding alcohol, avoiding fragrances and body soaks are some of the important measures. Besides this ultra violet light therapy may be used. As it is an auto-immune disease, hence in hard to treat cases, immuno-suppressant like Methotraxate etc., can be also used under guidance of your doctor.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Satnarain Bansal, General & Family Physician
