I do suffer from psoriasis on my scalp and elbows.  And in the Summer it responded to treatment but currently its bad.

Hi

I have been using Nerisone from the doctor.

In the summer it started to go with treatment but now cause I scratched it it like this .. I'm worried its something worse..

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
The appearance on the picture does look like it is psoriasis. It does not have the appearance of Bowen's disease or any other serious illness.

I ask about the medicine that has been used to know whether a more potent steroid would be an option, but the Nerisone is a potent steroid cream. Since this is not working, the usual next medicine that I would consider would be a medicine that works by suppressing the immune system, such as tacrolimus or pimecrolimus.

If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
