I have severe psoriasis on my feet. I have tried Methotrexate, Humira, Otezela, & Consentyx and they have not worked. I am looking for a dermatologist here in Knoxville. And I was was just curious what would you recommend to try next? Thank you!

Great question!  Psoriasis can be very difficult to treat, but, luckily, we have numerous options to try.  The choice of which treatment to begin depends upon various factors, such as the location and severity of the psoriasis, other medical problems (if any), any medications that you are taking, the presence or absence of arthritis, and many other factors.  The best course of action would be to schedule an appointment so that we can evaluate your condition and come up with a tailored treatment plan!  We have locations in both Knoxville and Lenoir City, TN.

I have a lot of ingrown pubic hairs and little dark spots which i guess are scars from previous ingrown hairs or something, and I’ve tried medicines and plucking and exfoliating but can’t get them to go away and it makes my skin look really gross. Any advice on how to help get rid of these?
November 28, 2017

Thanks for posting a question!  There are treatments for ingrown hairs and the dark marks that they can leave which range from topical medications to laser procedures.  It is best to have your specific case addressed with an office visit.  Please schedule an appointment by calling 865-450-9361.  We have Knoxville and Lenoir City, TN locations.
