Psoriasis alleviation
About the author: 

If stress can trigger psoriasis, then it follows that anything that alleviates the psychological problems can also help the condition

If stress can trigger psoriasis, then it follows that anything that alleviates the psychological problems can also help the condition. So the thinking has gone with a group of doctors from Turkey who have been giving antidepressants to psoriasis patients.

Possibly to their own surprise, the approach appears to have helped make the topical steroids for psoriasis more effective. But of the 30 patients in the treatment group, 18 did not complete the course.

It's not clear if the problem was down to a drug reaction, but now the doctors have stumbled on a fact long since recognised by the alternative camp,which is that perhaps a more benign approach could be tried.
