I'm sorry, I'm not a physician. I can't suggest anything for you. I did locate a number of websites that discuss cures for psoriasis. Also, your doctor might have some suggestions.
Best wishes.

I had a female surgery last year and after a couple days I noticed a 'lesion' on my back near my spine at the level of my waist. It was inflamed and itching. I treated the itching, but it stayed on my back almost 4 MONTHS. When it fell off, the scab contained about 10-12 (roughly) tiny black perfectly round balls about 1mm in diameter. I have no idea what those were, but when I noticed a photo of a mustard seed, I began to research.
Is there any way someone could have implanted mustard seeds (although I didn't notice a rough textured surface as the photo) into my back? I do know there are veterinary medications that can be implanted with a standard syringe that are that small. ARE YOU AWARE OF DOCTORS OR ANESTHESIOLOGISTS IMPLANTING MUSTARD SEEDS DURING SURGERIES?? I really am perplexed by this, and my doctor said she did not touch my back, however, she was not present when I was placed under anesthesia. Any suggestion you might have, such as tiny human implants of medication, would help me figure this out. It was implanted without my knowledge or consent at any rate. Please offer any suggestion you might have. Thank you very much.
