I've had PR for 10 weeks and recently went to the doctors where she told me that my PR has turned into psoriasis as psoriasis attacks weak parts of your body. I have been prescribed with calcipotriol ointment which is a non steroid ointment used to treat psoriasis, so far the results have been encouraging as the redness has gone down significantly and they are almost completely flat (this is after 1 day). I encourage anyone who is unsure about their diagnosis to go and get double checked as i was treating PR and getting nowhere, now after 10 weeks my skin is finally starting to show signs of improvement.I am by no means clear but now i know what I'm actually dealing with the healing process already seems easier. Any questions please let me know.

    Hi Heather, I've had whatever this is for about nine weeks, and was wondering the same thing about psoriasis. did you ever try the prreze cream? can you describe your spots/maybe post a picture? I'm going to the doctor in a couple days so hopefully they will do a biopsy there. thanks for your help!

      Hi John,!i didn’t manage to try prreze cream despite ordering it and paying a lot for shipping, during the time it took to arrive I started using psoriasis treatments. My spots were initially smaller and less scaley for the first 5 weeks, then they started to fade which is when I think the PR went and psoriasis came, after that they were larger redder and scalier and all joined together, have a look at pictures of psoriasis online and see if it looks like what you’ve got because after looking I found that I could relate more to that. Hope this helps!
