3 1/2 yr old with possible psoriasis

Posted by The5aint5 on 6th March 2012 07:03PM

Hi just looking for a little bit of advice. Have been to the docs this week with my daughter and been told that she may have psoriasis, he didn't want to put a label on her though. Its mainly on her arms and legs with bigger patches on elbows and knees. We have been given steroid cream but can anyone help me ease her itching .... Anything would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks, Sarah.

    Hi my son has psoriasis he was the same age as your daughter when we found out he was 4 yesterday. I have it too so poor thing has inherited it from me. How is your daughter now? I feel my sons is getting worse and being so young there are not many creams he can use.

    Hello, My 4 year old daughter was diagnosed with psoriasis 7 months ago, we have tried so many creams and ointments and it just keeps appearing in different place. Her heels and scalp are especially bad, the Dr said when she itches just to keep applying cream but I'm going back tomorrow as its getting worse.
