Conditions with symptom: 'scaling'
Im 16 and I havnt been good at all with brushing my teeth, my family kept telling me as a child to brush them but now I regret it as earlier I was getting ready for bed (i have been brushing for 7 years properly now) I looked in the mirror and at the bottom of my lower teeth is a gray crusty layer, I did some research and apparently I might need scaling, but im scared of the dentists and I have very bad gag reflexes, (if one thing is in my mouth for over a minute I throw up) im scared and I dont know what to do, I also got punched in the face a week ago and it chipped my back right moler
I have peeled a jackfruit 8 months ago. Its white juice has hardened the skin of my hands. After some days when I consulted to the doctor, he told me that this is a case of palmoplanter psoriasis. He prescribed me treatment (clop-S and terbicrat cream)which I am using for the last 7 months. No relief. There is white scaling coming up in the fingers and palm of my hands and painful cracks. This ailment affecting my nails and fingers tows and gradually spreading to my feet (nails and under thumb areas). Kindly advice what treatment should I take.
