Hi zivalee,

Thank you for your post and welcome to EmpowHer!

Although Ammonium Lactate 12% is normally used for xerosis, ichthyosis-- you may want to ask your doctor if this is the best solution for you.

More specifically, for psoriasis,prescribed is Ammonium Lactate and Urea which goes under the brand name: Ultralytic, Ultralytic 2, and Utralytic. Perhaps this may be a better option for you since is a combination of lactic acid and ammonium hydroxide. Ammonium lactate is a moisturizer and Urea loosens thick or scaly skin cells and allows them to shed.

The person best suited to inform you whether or not a topical ointment is best for you is your doctor since he/she can actually see your skin and knows your previous history with meds. Ask your dermatologist what he or she recommends for you and keep us posted!
