Yes! Psoriasis is one of my symptoms. Many lupus/MCTD patients have skin disorders. There's even a specific AI disease called psoriatic arthritis. I had to add a dermatologist to my growing contingent of doctors. He's wonderful. Takes me seriously. He prescribes a steroid foam to put on my scalp and a steroid cream to put on the psoriasis patches everywhere else. I have them on my arms, back, legs, between my fingers, and as of this morning, one on the top of my foot.
If you are on prednisone, it helps tremendously. I've been tapering off of the pred and many of my symptoms, including a large increase in psoriasis, have come back with a vengeance. While on the pred, I had only a tiny patch of it on my scalp.
I hope you get some cream or foam soon.
