    Here’s how to tell if your rash could actually be psoriasis—and how to get the right treatment.

    After unsuccessfully trying to topically treat, what I believed to be, psoriasis for the past couple years, at the top of my nose in between and into the eyebrows, I finally was reminded that zinc is an important nutrient for various parts of the body, not the least of which is skin. So I recently started applying commonly available zinc oxide ointment to the affected area with good results, minimizing the scaling, and only having to reapply some zinc ointment perhaps once a month or so. https://www.healthy-skincare.com/benefit-of-zinc.html

    grulla, perhaps you need to take zinc supplements. I don't know about US, but here in Oz our soils are very deficient in zinc.

    Thanks, Julie, I take one 50mg tablet of zinc every morning with many other supps with my breakfast. Perhaps that is why the topical zinc seems to be working so well???
