Ideally a skin biopsy should be taken by a dermatologist to confirm diagnosis & treat accordingly A 3mm Punch Skin Biopsy can be done from the affected area.
Hello, i have developed the problem of psoriasis since past 6-7 months. The biopsy result says 'psoriasiform dermatitis'. The doctor has advised me to apply pasitrex-c over the rashes. The medicine is effective as it is making the bumps/rashes small but when i stop using the medicine the rashes starts developing again & again. Also this ointment doesn't completely remove the rash. My legs have many rashes along with my chest, stomach & back. My face has just started showing some dry spots & I'm afraid if my face would also be filled with those rashes. Please suggest some medicine to stop these rashes because pasitrex-c is not helping. My blood reports are as follows:- HIV-Negative VDRL- Negative CBC: all tests are ok LFT: all tests are ok. KFT: All tests are ok. Total Ige: Ok
