  • I’ve got a diagnosis of psoriatic spondyloarthropathy. Psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. The creams I used to get were just for the skin plaques and didn’t do anything for the swelling in my joints. You’ll probably get some NSAIDS like naproxen or etoricoxib to help with any joint pain, as long as you can tolerate them. If not, you might start getting methotrexate and some other DMARD’s. I’m about 3 1/2 years into my diagnosis and haven’t found anything that works for me yet.
