Is Dovonex Likely to Help Her Guttate?
from Ashlin

I developed guttate psoriasis after a strep throat infection and I've had it now for three weeks.  My doctor prescribed Dovonex, which worked for my sister, but I'm convinced it won't work for me.  My sister hasn't had a spot for years, if only I could be so lucky.  I'm 30 years old and have hardly ever even had a zit in my life so this is extremely traumatizing to me.  Plus the fact that I can't go out in shorts when it's 100 degrees out.  I feel so hopeless and like nobody understands so it's nice to find this web site. -Ashlin


Ed’s Response:  I’m glad you found us, too, Ashlin.  I’m curious: What’s convinced you Dovonex won’t work for you?  As you probably know, getting guttate after a strep infection is par for the course for people with the genetic proclivity.  Your doctor prescribing Dovonex is a sensible attempt to bring you under control without corticosteroids.  It may not work, but if it does, it will be much better for your skin.  Let us know how it goes.  -Ed
