She used many ointments for psoriasis, even resorted to folk remedies - nothing helped. That was until my dermatologist advised me on Fluorocort. I didn’t feel the effect immediately, but after only 10 days I could easily walk in a T-shirt with short sleeves, because psoriasis began to fade. In general, thanks to the ointment Ftorocort, I was very pleased. Regina, Vladimir, Russia
