I got strep throat at the beginning of the month and was put on antibiotics. 4 days later broke out in a rash. i knew it was psoriasis as this happened to me 15 years ago when i got strep,at that time i got a cream for my face and body and it cleared up quick.it was a severe case..i went to see another doctor because mine was away. told her it was psoriasis which she did not believe. first she thought i had mono (blood test confimed neg) then she thought it was a rash caused by an allergy to the medication and put me on another antibiotic. finally i saw my reg doc who thought the same, an allergy and put me on prednisone for 3 days and of course it did nothing, then she decided to repeat it. after 2 more days on this horrible medicaiton i finally convinced her it was psoriasis. she called a derm doc and called me back telling me to stop the prednisone as it would make my psoriasis worse.....just went to see the derm doc thinking i would get a cream but she wants to put me on cyclosporine. after hearing a long long list of severe side effects from her as well as my pharmasist and then doing research online I have decided that the risks outway the benefits for this medication. i refuse to take it. so now im looking into what i wanted in the beginning, to try creams.i need help as to what to ask for from my doctor. again its guttate psoriasis and it is a severe case. im also looking into homeopath options and light therapy. i just dont understand why a cream wont work this time as it did before with no problems. ive been looking online for hours and just find conflicting information so im looking for what people have used and whats worked and what hasent. Since June the 1st ive been on a medication rollercoaster ride. ive been prescribed medication after medication that has made things worse or that would cause extreme side effects that are not worth the risk. I am greatful for any help i can get.
