LilcrohnieUK, I have found that an otc gel called Dermarest to be more effective then steroid creams. It contains 3% salicylic acid which is found in many acne medications btw. Dermarest also contains natural extracts and essential oils to help with the scaling. I assume you are in the UK? Maybe if they don't have this brand near you maybe you can find something similiar. I have to warn you though, if you find some sort of psoriasis gel that contains salicylic acid that it may sting like heck when you first apply - especially if the area is irritated. But I have tried so many other creams and gels and this is the only thing that helped to tame my psoriasis down to a tolerable level.
