  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • I was presecribed Betacap for what appeared initially to be bad scalp psoriasis ( not then pustular). I was later diagnosed with cutaneous lupus ( other lesions etc on skin). I had some localised alopecia and initially the Betacap was, in my view, the drug that seemed to calm down the psoriasis entirely and regrowth started. I was placed on Plaquenil when I was diagnosed with lupus 6 months ago and have been on 400 mgs daily for 3 or 4 months. Recently I have had very painfully pus-filled bumps on my scalp ( in the region where I used to apply the Betacap and where there had been hairloss). I note that both PLaquenil and Betacap can cause pustular psoriasis. I am currently being treated with clarithromycin for the pustular boils/scabs ( one week).
