Psoriasis possibly?

Posted by Eightieschild @pamelacelia, Jan 8 3:29pm

Hello, my cousin recently started getting some raised rashes on her skin, it started on her forearms, she went to the medical facility and was given antibiotics and an ointment to use, she saw slight improvement but over the last few days more rashes have appeared all over her body, she says it's itchy and burning, I've attached a picture of what she sent me.

Hi @pamelacelia that sounds very upsetting for your cousin.

Here is more information on psoriasis: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/psoriasis/symptoms-causes/syc-20355840

I also thought this conversation would be helpful as it is on a medication that is used to treat Psoriasis: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/otezla/

@carolyneagle @djfd and @heartpolar all have mentioned psoriasis in the past and may be able to offer you support.

Back to you @pamelacella what antibiotic and ointment was your cousin given? Did the doctor give a specific diagnosis?

Thank you, she was given amoxill I believe, I don't know the name of the ointment, I'll check out the links you posted.
