Thanks Storm Crow, I have seen the first article that you posted, and the second... Well I didn't really understand it
And to some other posters up there, yes I do use hemp lotion, and it works quite well at keeping my skin from drying up, and from what I have seen, however it's hard to tell for sure, suppresses my psoriasis once I have gotten it under control with topical steroids. The thing about topical steroids though is that it sometimes gets to the point where I am literally rubbing a tar/clebatasol compound all over my body. I have tried taking a medication called soriatane, but the side effects led me to stop.
Another point I wanted to make is that immunosuppressant drugs are used in the treatment of psoriasis, Cyclosporine is the main immunosuppresive drug used, here are a list of side effects from Drugs.com;
Common side effects include: Acne; dizziness; headache; increased hair growth; nausea; runny nose; sleeplessness; stomach discomfort; vomiting.
More severe side effects include:
Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue); black, tarry stools; blood in the urine; change in the appearance of a mole; chest pain; confusion; dark urine; diarrhea; fast or irregular heartbeat; flushing of the face, chest, back, or abdomen; gum disease or overgrowth; increased or decreased urination; loss of coordination; mental or mood changes; muscle cramps; numbness or tingling of the skin; seizures; severe or persistent headache or dizziness; shortness of breath; symptoms of infection (eg, chills, cough, fever, painful urination, sore throat); tremors; unusual bleeding or bruising; unusual lumps; unusual thickening or growth on the skin; unusual tiredness or weakness; vision changes; wheezing; yellowing of the skin or eyes.
