Hip Replacement postponed due to the psoriasis path on my hip.

Posted Tue 11 Feb 2020 10.23pm by jpcress70

I have a few small patches of psoriasis, on my left hip, elbows etc. I have been using Enstilar, a can that has freezing foam. I live in Australia, and for a year or so, this has been keeping my skin in a reasonably calm state. I am due to have my left hip replaced next week. It's been postponed until I can improve the condition of the skin.. review in one month. Any ideas / suggestions.. gratefully received. Thanks.
