Hi Doc
I have psoriasis, which besides being itchy with dry skin hasn' t worried my till now. I now have red, dry patches appearing - about 6 of them and i' m not sure what to do. I have used Advantan in the past, but am worried about using it as im undergoing IVF and will hopefully be preggies within the next month. Can you pls recommend something i could try which weill be safe to use during pregnancy as well. Many thanks!
