I have topical psoriasis and I use Taclonex to keep it under control. I live in Chicago but I am in Michigan for the week for my cousins wedding and I left my tube in Chicago. I'm starting to get an outbreak on the back of my knee and I need to get something to clear it up by Friday, or at least control it enough so it doesn't get worse. I don't have the money to fill my prescription, so I'm wondering if there is an over the counter equivalent to Taclonex, or something that has the same active ingredients, to hold me over until I'm back in the city on Sunday.

Used Taclonex for psoriasis?
Used Taclonex for psoriasis, it worked, no scaleing or bumps, for the past couple months. but am still very dark reddish purple. How do I make that lighten up?
Asked by Louella Horsman 6 months ago.
You might need to give it some more time to fade. If it does not fade, talk to your doctor about it to see if it is ok to use any of the lightening products. While waiting, it should be ok to use cocoa butter or vitamin E oil to help with it. Answered by Lorenzo Hogatt 6 months ago.

Unfortunately the best remedy for most types of psoriasis is sun exposure, which offcourse also increases the risk for skin cancer. I still tan in moderation and it makes my psoriasis look a lot better. Answered by Nena Tabler 6 months ago.
There are different treatments, but it can not be removed. This is an autoimmune disease. I use over the counter ointment- Aquaphor. The sun helps some people I have had this for most of my life and now both of my children have it.

Cover the affected areas with clothing to hide it. To reduce the appearance and "hide it" for awhile, there are a number of things ( prescribed creams, radiation (Ultraviolent treatments), cortisone, etc.) that can help the sufferer depending on the degree of the problem. Talk to a dermatologist in your area. They can help you. Answered by Vertie Staib 6 months ago.

I have Plaque psoriasis on my head?
I have had psoriasis for over 6 years on my head!! I'm now old enough to make my own decision on medicines and such! what is the best cure for this type of psoriasis!! suggestions PLEASE!
Asked by Alejandrina Cadelina 6 months ago.
You need to go to a dermatologist first and get Taclonex scalp solution and dermasmoothe scalp oil. In the interim while waiting for an apointment try sleeping with olive oil or any oil you have and apply it to the scalp at night before bed and sleep with a shower cap on. In the morning use Ketoconazole shampoo over the counter, let shampoo set for ten minutes then rinse. Also Scalpicin help with the itch. Answered by Elin Ostrowski 6 months ago.
Hello there. I suggest that you should look into natural remedies before subjecting yourself to the steroidal and immunosuppresanting drug the official medicine today use for treating psoriasis. The side effects are worse than the disease itself. For me personally (I have plaque p. on knees, scalp and elbows) the herbal cream/spray combo from Champori.com works the best; and I spent many years looking for something that is safe, effective and fast-working. Try it: it comes with money back guarantee so if it doesn't work for you - it's free. Best, Bernadette Answered by Giuseppina Luing 6 months ago.

I've been using a hydrocortizone cream. I'm taking zyrtec, and antibiotic, and this cream called Taclonex. But nothing is working! I have to stay away from a lot of lotions because they only irritate them. I'm from Chicago and recently there has been a sort of "epidemic" due to mite bites...so I'm not alone. But out of all the people I know who has it, mine is the worst. I've been thinking of soaking my hands in oatmeal....or cutting them off. :( Answered by Marvis Wide 6 months ago.
oh dear, what strange advice you've been given `:-\ Firstly, are you taking the zyrtec and antibiotic for the itchy dry hands? If so, then this would more than likely to iritate than doing anything....if it is for some other condition, I'd say that this is not helping. The cortizone cream should be helping, but as it is obviously not, then soaking in the oatmeal should help soothe, but also see if you can find some aloe-vera --- a fresh leaf from a growing plant is best (cut leaf and swipe the moisture over affected area), but a gel or cream should suffice. Answered by Librada Szymkowski 6 months ago.
no offense meant but you probably have scabies. if you had a picture it would be easier to tell you for sure, but i'm just going off my gut feeling. if so, you'll be itching for quite some time unless you get a prescription from a doctor for the cream that kills the little buggers.

I am to the point that I am so embarrassed by my scalp that I dont want to leave my home. My skin is peeling off my scalp and getting worse. has anybody found anything helpful with this or know of any medications that work. I was diagnosed with the condition but then treated with meds for a yeast infection of the scalp and it did not help. Answered by Freddie Krahenbuhl 6 months ago.
you need to try an "all of the above" approach. your dermatologist can prescribe a gentle steroidal, non greasy application, such as a scalp formulated version of taclonex. Use a rotation of three different shampoos, get one with salicylic acid (Nutrogena makes a good one, and CVS stocks a store brand version) get one with pyrithione zinc (head and shoulders and the like) AND get an anti fungal, nizoral which is available over the counter. You also could have your dermatologist give you a scrip for a good pharmacist to compound a lotion of glycerine, salicylic acid and mineral oil to rub into your scalp to de-scale at night. the problem with steroids is that they thin the skin. They have to be used sparingly, only when your scalp is the worst. good luck! scott Answered by Vernice Romanick 6 months ago.
Steroids are commony used for both dandruff and psoriasis. They can be very effective, but sometimes additional medications will be needed. You should get the steroid in a liquid form for the scalp. They aren't greasy and they come in the more potent strengths that the scalp often needs. the anti yeast shampoos can help a little and should still be used if you can. The over the counter salicylic acid products, shampoo or liquid, can peel scale and make it easier to get through a day until the medications take effect. Don't overdo the sal acid as it can be drying. Answered by Alexis Broege 6 months ago.
I had a 13 year history of psoriasis, though I was in good health otherwise. But these severe large, thick and scaly excoriated plaques on my neck, ears, trunk and limbs ruined the way I was leading my life. I would be with red, inflamed itchy skin for most part of the year and these silvery scales would seem to be erupting without any reason. To make matters worse, blisters would appear over already red and itching skin. It was living hell. I was treated with various options but nothing seemed to be working. Some of the treatments that I underwent in this depressing period of 13 years included tar preparation, tropical steroids and anthralin. I was also given light therapy many times but everything I tried would give me temporary relief. And soon, after a few days I would be plagued with the situation again. In one of those moments when I was completely lost I stumbled upon this website just by chance. I read it and felt that as if someone had put the story my life on this web page. I was thoroughly convinced that if ANYONE can cure me of condition, it would be you. And was I right, or what. I started recovering within 3 days of starting this treatment. Something that had become a painful part of me for 13 years was actually getting healed! My ears are healed and my neck is smooth again!. I am a month into the treatment and I have never felt better in my life! Psoriasis Revolution? Answered by Terence Bywaters 6 months ago.
Hi I've had psoriasis for the past 12 years, I found the head was the easiest to control, shampoos, coal tar and the rest did not work for me, but dying my hair does. I was a member of a psoriasis group on the net a few years ago and a lot of people agreed that this works, its something to do with the hydrogen peroxide that seals the skin, obviously you will have to do a test on a small part firts to make sure it doesn't irritate you more but it definately clears my head 100% and my Mum too.

Prescribed medications did not work for me either. I cleared my scalp psoriasis with serenaskin remedies. I was using ointment and spray and took extract internally. Ointment is greasy but I felt a relief after first application, and in a couple of weeks of the treatment my scalp was cleared. Answered by Tatum Nash 6 months ago.
Hi, you can try one of the natural treatments available on the Internet. Some of them do actually work. For my scalp psor. I use herbal cream by Champori quite successfully. It takes just a couple of weeks to clear the spots and they then stay clear for months on end.

I've already tried triamcinolone, betamethasone, desonide, fluocinonide, clobetasol (pretty much all steroids), uv light, Umecta, tar, prednisone, Elidel, Taclonex, psoriatane and no improvement. I don't have arthritis or plaque lesion. All I have is thick skin on my feet that peels and cracks and limit my mobility because my feet hurt so much. Answered by Dong Joma 6 months ago.
There are several treatment options for psoriasis but it depends how bad you have it. If it is a mild case with just a few spots throughout your body then I would recommend corticosteriod creams that suppress your skin's ability to become irritated and flakey. Triamcinolone, betamethasone, desonide, clobetasol are all steroid creams that accomplish this. In the long run though, these creams will thin out your skin so you don't want to use too much. There is a cream that is not a steroid cream called Elidel. It is a brand and and pretty expensive but you don't get any side affects with the cream. If you have a really bad case of psoriasis, a drug called Enbrel has been shown to work. Given usually to patients with reumatoid arthritis, this medication does the same for psoriasis in that it reduces the inflammation in your body. The sun does help with the severity of psoriasis in that with most people their ezcema/psoriasis is usually worse in the colder winter months. It is hard to say if it is the lack of sun or the cold that causes the condition to get worse but tanning beds alone are never a good option. You run a very high risk of skin cancer if you go the tanning bed route. Talk to your doctor about the steroid creams and Elidel and see if they work. Answered by Alisa Mcgeary 6 months ago.
