Soratinex for Psoriasis

Tomáš Váňa (11) – I lost my hair due to psoriasis

„Some children called me bad names, they were afraid to touch me. They thought it was contagious, but it is not“, says Tomas. His mother found help for him on the internet.

"Tomas started to have psoriasis at the age of 5, when he first had spots in his scalp," describes his mother Marketa. His dermatologist recommended treatment with special light at first. We would go there for 30 minutes a day. After nine months, instead of having five small spots in his scalp, he had one huge spot all over his head. It was five millimeters thick and he had no hair growing from this dry skin," says Marketa. Doctors started to prescribe various types of medicine – corticoids, ointments and creams with tar, special oils. Nothing worked. They even tried cannabis creams, salt chambers, Dead Sea mud – no positive results whatsoever.

At the end of last year Tom became a teenager and the psoriasis spread over his entire body. Nothing could make it stop and he did not want to go to school. He had psoriasis on his face, in his eyebrows," says Marketa, who spent hours on the internet searching for help when even doctors could not help any more.

"Then one day I found Dr Michaels products and asked for samples. I received a response that they did not provide samples, but I could sign up to participate in a clinical study in Motol Hospital in Prague,” continues Marketa.

In Motol, they did a thorough examination on Tomas and gave him two sets of products to try. "We could not believe it, he was on treatment for 7 years before and nothing ever helped. Now in five weeks the psoriasis from his scalp was gone," says Marketa.

Medicine exists – Insurance companies do not cover it...

What has helped Tom is cosmetics based on natural elements. So far it has been rejected by many doctors as being non-effective. After having conducted tests in five Medical Faculty hospitals in the Czech Republic and also in Austria, Hungary and Russia, doctors started to accept these products, but insurance companies still don’t...

"The effectiveness of treatment in clinical tests was over 82%. The results are better with chronic forms of psoriasis, it is not so suitable for acute forms," describes Prof. MD. Jana Hercogova from Medical Faculty Hospital Na Bulovce in Prague.

The dermatologist of Tomas shares the same opinion: " Our patients have had psoriasis for between six months and six years. With the exception of one patient we could notice significant improvement much earlier than with other types of treatment," describes MUDr. Stepanka Capkova from the Medical Faculty Hospital Na Bulovce in Prague.

Although this treatment is, according to doctors, much safer and more effective than other types of treatment, it is not covered by insurance companies. "Its biggest advantage is that it does not contain corticosteroids," notes Prof. MUDr. Frantisek Novotny from the Prague Dermatology Centre. Corticosteroids make your skin thinner, they slow down the process of healing skin infections and in the event you suddenly discontinue the treatment, the psoriasis can get even worse. Plus the effectiveness of such treatment is only about 50%, according to Prof. Hercogova.
