    My brother is suffers from Psoriasis but he has tablets and uses a cream to aid the eradication of the marks (called Aaagen I think?)

    I had some marks around my waist for a long time which I ignored until recently when they went dark and also had marks under my armpit which turned dry then dark. I've got an appointment at the doctor's in a month's time (quickest they can get me in apparently!) so wanted to ask if there were any other sufferers and advice on treating it. Are there any recommended creams besides the one my brother uses to help with the marks it leaves behind? And has anyone taken the proscribed antibiotics given my the doctor - my brother says they are very strong.

    Any advice appreciated.

    I had psoriasis in a severe form that it covered me head to toe. Literally. It was excruciating and stressed me out to the max since I was in exam time! I ended up having to quit my sport for half a year and get treatment from the doc. I used strong topical steroid creams like dovobet etc which were the best things to use. Also keep your vitamins up to ensure your skin can stay moisturised and clear. If you drink a lot of booze you might wanna lay off it as it affects psoriasis too. I really hope it never comes back so I don't want you to suffer the same way.
