am itching. How is 10 drops going to help, especially when it is not only on my scalp where my head touches my pillow at night, but also on the back of my neck and upper back and down sides of neck (rash) as well? My doctor said to use 10 drops only, twice a day.I also read the side effects and am scared to use the stuff!
I just found out that I have psoriasis and was told to put 10 drops of fluocinonide topical where I?

I have stage 3 colorectal cancer, found in the fall of 2008. I have been through some chemotherapy and have completed radiation treatments and so far the cancer hasnt come back. My question is can either of the above trigger psoriasis, basically screwing up my immune system. I have also had vitiligio for over 30 years.
Stress and heredity are factors for psoriasis. You have been ill and treated with chemo and that likely kicked it it. There are alot of meds to treat it, talk to a pharmacist and a dermatologist and they may have other help. You need to tell them of your recent illness and the other meds you take. My mom had it really bad and she was getting sick from her alcoholism, that is when it started for her. She went to a dermatologist and got a wrong diagnosis, but, then went to another and he helped her get it back under control and put her on something to control the itching. Her chiropractor suggested b complex with zinc and that helped alot, but, please ask the doctor and pharmacist about that since you have been sick and took other meds. Good luck, I'll say a prayer for you since it is a really aggravating condition.
