How long before I see results using OTC Over The Counter products?
It depends upon several factors including your overall condition, the types of food you eat, alcohol consumption, smoking, vitamins you take or not, your weight and how severe your psoriasis condition is. The period needed for a OTC Over The Counter product to show some effect, subject to the above considerations, can vary between a week, a month, or longer. When you have a present severe condition of psoriasis it is “better” to apply a “instant shock” therapy in the form of a PUVA, Methotrexate, Goeckerman etc. to get your skin clean. Then, you follow up with a OTC Over The Counter product to maintain the skin in an acceptable condition. If you follow this you are only subject to potential side effect medications/treatments for a short period of time.
