Subject: 17 yr old with psoritic arthritis

my son is 17 and got psorisis for the first time and with in two weeks his knees were swollen. I took him to Derm and his PCP who refered us to a Rheum Dr. He was on Naproxen for 1 month with not much relief his knuckle them became swollen. He was started on mexatrexate injections, but was recommended to still take the oral Naproxen due to mexatrexate not expected to take effect fo 4-6 weeks. He also started physical therarpy which helped with joint stiffness. After the second shot he was had much relief in his knees but knuckle still swollen. He also takes Folic acid daily. It has been helpful to read this site to hear other peoples stories. Is there anyone who used this and felt relief and has had a good experience with this medication? I do see that some people have had some bad experiences, as a worried mom i am hoping that this drug has been a "fix" for some people.

There are many remedies out there for arthritis and many of them claim to give pain relief. Looking at them every one has its use but one seems to work psoritic arthritis and that is Elmore Oil. Google it and I'm sure you can read about it. It is 100% natural and rubbed on the areas.
