Caution! Psoriasis Patients

Many psoriasis patients choose corti-costeroid treatments, to avoid the messiness and potential skin-damaging side effects of coal-tar products.

Remember that steroid medicines can have serious and far-reaching side effects, too.

Excessive or long-term use of steroidal ointments can thin the skin and cause white spots, acne, and permanent stretch marks.

Used extensively around the eyes, steroidal ointments can, in rare cases, lead to glaucoma. Oral corticosteroid treatment may cause psoriasis to flare up again after treatment stops.

People whose psoriasis stubbornly resists conventional treatment should know that the sudden onset of psoriasis may indicate a human immuno deficiency virus (HIV) infection, a pre-cursor to AIDS.
