When are weaker coricosteroids best to treat psoriasis?

ANSWER

Weaker corticosteroids work best if you need to use them on sensitive areas such as your face, groin, or breasts. Your doctor may also prescribe a lower-strength version if you have to use it for a long time. Mild to mid-strength ones can be used on children.
