Genital Psoriasis Treatment
Treating genital psoriasis can be a difficult task. Most topical treatments such as low-strength topical steroids work well in treating genital psoriasis. Protopic and Elidel help to reduce skin inflammation without promoting yeast or bacterial growth.
- Over-the-counter moisturizers may cause irritation in the affected areas.
- Topical steroids may cause the skin to thin and stretch marks to appear.
- Consult with your physician whether it is safe to use topical treatments in the genital area that was prescribed for other parts of the body.
