My psoriasis has become unbearable. I've had to put my job as an invigilator on hold, without the steroid treatment my skin is painful and non to pleasant to look at.
Nothing I have tried other than steroid creams has any effect.
I am covered patches of psoriasis from pin prick size to that sores covering my elbows, knees,backs of my legs and elsewhere.
Both my Doctor and Psychiatrist agree that Lithium can aggravate the psoriasis. It is not a decision we made lightly, I've been on it for years for manic depression, during which time I've experienced some years without and been fine.
We discussed a replacement - epileptic or schizophrenic therapy amongst others but decided while I have an observant network of friends around me only to happy to help should I lapse I would just reduce the Lithium from 900Mg a day by 100Mg a week. CAN YOU HELP?
the lithium is not the issue.
Please explain what you mean by systematically and with what
