Psoriasis Treatment with Biologics.

My psoriasis, which I had long before CFS, is really getting out of control. I don't mind the plaques but I am itching so much now it is barely tolerable.

I have put off going to a dermatologist because the new biologic medications scare me to death. My concern is not only the side effects of the meds but how they could affect my CFS since they suppress the immune system.

Has anyone had a positive experience with them? Please don't post if you are going to scare the living daylights out of me please.

Thanks
