How often will a doctor want to see someone taking medication for pustular psoriasis?

ANSWER

Your doctor will want to see you every few weeks or months when you take these drugs to make sure they work well and don't cause problems. Tell your doctor if you plan to have a baby, because some of these drugs shouldn't be taken by women who intend to get pregnant.
