Moisturizing and humidifier to reduce itching

October 3, 2012 — 9:22pm
have had psoriasis since I was 9 (for about 25 years). In adulthood, my condition worsened considerably, probably from stress. I have been using Enbrel and Ultravate for the past 4 years. Enbrel worked great for the first year but seems to have stopped working. The only thing that has consistently worked well for me... Read more »
