My grandmother is 87yrs old and out of no where she has gotten this rash for the last 2weeks that seems to be getting worse and taking over her whole body. We've been to Dr's and dermatologists who just give her steroids and creams. They finally took a biopsy of it on Thursday but no results of it yet. They say it may be psoriasis. It started out with just a rash, raised almost hive like on her face and then proceeded down her chest, arms, back and now legs. her face is swollen and stretched so much that her eyelids are pulled down and seeping goo. Anyone who may have advice, ideas, suggestions...PLEASE HELP! Ive been reading up on some psoriasis and one of them could be deadly to the elderly.. again very worried!!View Thread
