Q. What are some good non-prescription lotions for psoriasis

A1from some reason- bathing in the "dead sea" in Israel helps psoriasis. i know they sell mud from the dead sea in malls all over the U.S. try it- could be useful.
A2Topical (skin applied) medications include topical corticosteroids, vitamin D analogue creams (Dovonex), topical retinoids (Tazorac), moisturizers, topical immunomodulators (tacrolimus and pimecrolimus), coal tar, anthralin, and others. Topical corticosteroids (steroids, such as hydrocortisone) are very useful and often the first-line treatment for limited or small areas of psoriasis. These come in many preparations, including sprays, liquid, creams, gels, ointments, and mousses. Steroids come in many different strengths, including stronger ones are used for elbows, knees, and tougher skin areas and milder ones for areas like the face, underarms, and groin. These are usually applied once or twice a day to affected skin areas. For the complete list:http://www.medicinenet.com/psoriasis/page5.htm

Q. Can you provide information about how depression can be cured without prescription medications?

I was working at a MNC with a high designation. Because of the internal politics I was sent out with a label ‘irresponsible.’ Each and everyone on the chairman’s committee knows very well about my hard work and the benefits they had gotten because of me. This wrong news has gone down the corporate grapevine to other companies and they are not accepting my application. I went into depression and was sick. I have spent all my hard-earned money on medications. Now my pocket is empty. No-one is there to help. I don’t need money from you now but can you provide information about how depression can be cured without prescription medications?
A1kenn;;im not gonna hold your hand on this one,what has happened to you happens to others,forget about the depression meds...SHIT HAPPENS...you have to be strong...and get your life together...the way the world is today..with people losing there jobs..their homes and all of their money...your problem seems small...think about another kind of job...think about going to school for something else..your life has not ended because of this....spend your money on looking for something new..GET IT TOGETHER.....PEACE mrfoot56
A2This usually happens to lots of employees in this world. So there is nothing so serious to worry about. Sometimes you can overcome it with therapy. Also, some people believe that natural herbs can help you, like St. John Wort which is a herbal relief for depression. But depression is a psychological problem that cannot be treated without medication to solve the chemical imbalance. I would suggest seeing a doctor or a psychiatrist so they can help to work out what type of depression one has, so that the appropriate course can be taken. You can contact me further for any help. I will also get back to you if I find a suitable job for you. All the best! Move ahead!
