Is there a permanent treatment for psoriasis?
Q: I am 25 years old. I am suffering from planar psoriasis (continual itching and redness only in my foot) for the past six months. Three months back I went to India and consulted a dermatologist. He told me it is due to tension and then he suggested Steroids (Salicylic Acid, Clobetasol). I used these for two months and found some relief in some part of the foot. I am now back in UAE, but there is no relief. Then last month I had some allergy and I consulted a dermatologist here in UAE. She told it is due to food and prescribed XYZAL tablets and for the foot problem she told me to stop the steroids currently and suggested me the Urecare(urea cream). But still I am suffering and I get a lot of itching. What is the permanent treatment for this? A lot of people have been telling me that there is no complete treatment for this and they are suffering for last 20 years. Is this true?
