So I am actually a member in the Crohn's disease forum of healingwell. I was given Remicade for my Crohn's disease, (which can also be used to treat psoriasis and arthritis and some others.) Long story short, I developed severe 'drug induced' psoriasis. It started on my hands and feet, speard to my entire body (and I mean my ENTIRE body- in between my toes, fingers, my groin, backs of my knees, eye lids, etc...) and then finally to my scalp. While I have been managing my symptoms with topical steriods and prednisone, I can not seem to get my scalp under control. I have used a scalp steriod oil, as well as dermasmooth, but I am literally losing fistfulls of hair with scales that lifts from my head. I have never experienced any psoriasis in my life before the Remicade brought it on, so I have no idea what to do. Any advice would be welcome. Please and thank you :)
Everything in moderation, be thankful everyday, and be the most honest I can be. If I can look in the mirror at the end of the day and say I have done these things, I am happy.
Drugs I have tried: Pentasa, Entocort/Imuran, Prednisone, Remicade
Drugs I am on: None for Crohn's, Predisone for drug induced Psorasis
What I need: A bowel resection
