Hello, My son has been affected with Aids since 1997. He is doing well on the meds he takes. He takes a drug to build immune system. My question is; My sister has severe psoriasis and has been annemic all her life. Why can't the drug you give to Aids patients for building the immune system work with psoriasis?

Response from Dr. Frascino


AIDS is caused by a virus. Psoriasis is not. These are two completely different disease processes.

Giving AIDS-related meds to treat psoriasis would be equivalent to pulling you toenails off to treat a toothache.
