I am very successfully treated with Remicade infusions through my rheumatologist. I've been basically clear of pustular psoriasis for several years now after many years of itch and pain.

Clobex worked well for my pustular psoriasis a few years ago.

I have had plaque psoriasis for years was trying new medicine, Clobex, and my hand and feet erupted with pustular psoriasis. Nothing is working well, I am having light treatments now.
