How can I treat mild psoriasis with medications?
In mild cases, over the counter coal-tar soaps, shampoos, cleansers, or ointments used together with bath oils will suffice. Your dermatologist can help devise a treatment suited for your personal condition and if necessary may prescribe stronger coal tar or corticosteroids preparations. All of the above prescriptions, when used over longer periods of time (which usually has to be the case with psoriasis sufferers) can potentially cause side effects. For long term use, try to select products from this web site that can safely replace coal tar and steroids containing products.
