Q. What kind of health complications I should expect if I have Psoriasis? i recently was diagnosed with Plaque Psoriasis- will it affect other organs in my body? Are there any complications I should worry about? A. Patients suffering from psoriasis may also suffer from arthritis of various type, and also accelerated atherosclerosis (. heart diseases). However, I don't think that the approach should what should you worry about, but rather you may consult your doctor to see what you can do to control the disease and maybe feel better about it.
I had this issue up all night going nuts with itch. Trips to pcps er etc being treated with drops and oral antibiotics made me very sick and didnt help. Finally I went to ear nose throat and in one appt the dr fixed it. She vacuumed my ears out and put a powdered med in my ear. After not being able to hear and itching pain for months I was better in less than an hour. Go see an otolaryngologist if you are up itching all night. They are the only ppl that can make it stop. I let pcps and ppl tell me it was no big deal until i had irritated it into a major infection until i literally had ears full of blisters. If I had known there was help sooner i would of avoided trying all these homemade cures that only made my suffering worse.
Lots of unsubstantiated alternative eczema therapies are promoted in the press. Be wary of these claims. Miraculous natural cures for eczema often contain crushed cortisone tablets. Evening Primrose oil (or gamolenic acid), flaxseed & omega 3 oils offer no real additional benefit to eczema. Chinese herbal tea extracts have been evaluated but taste unpleasant and may even cause liver toxicity. Recalcitrant eczema on the face may respond to non-steroidal immune-modulator preparations such as Tacrolimus (Protopic) and Pimecrolimus (Elidel) however skin redness may be a temporary side effect. Ultra-violet light therapy treatment has been helpful so get out into the sunshine! There is growing proof that lactobacillus GG probiotics (Reuterina) supplemented in pregnancy, breastfeeding and early in life may reduce eczema in babies by altering their gut immune reactivity.
