Comment from: Gert, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: November 09

It is difficult for me to imagine that psoriasis appears at my age (66)! Currently I am using betamethasone ointment and it has helped. It has curbed most of the breakout and I will know more when I go back to the doctor in December.
