Dave just called...

Ok, the dermatologist was surprised at how little effect the treatment he'd given us had had... He's still sure it's viral, not stress induced psoriasis (which is a relief to me)... He's prescribed a stronger ointment and more of it... Erik has another appointment in a month. Meanwhile the Dr is going to consult a Paed. psoriasis specialist colleague of his about Erik having UV treatment. He's concerned about exposing Erik to so much UV at such a young age - the youngest he's done this treatment on to date was a 10 year old...

Dave asked point blank if we'd ever get rid of the psoriasis and the Dr said we definitely would - we're clinging to that hope...
