Stubborn Psoriasis/dosage-potency advice

I have suffered from Rheumatic Psoriasis for many years. And for years I searched for a homeopathic remedy. Although the rheumatic joint pain is almost non existant the associated scaly skin condition has worsened over the years, especially on my knees and elbows. About a year ago I had a eureka moment after experimenting with Rhus Tox 6c which started to me not feel better inside but my skin started clearing up too.(RT seems to work even better in combo with my Constitutional remedies)However just when I thought I'd got it beaten, I've recently had a relapse of a severity unknown before. This time though, Rhus Tox 6s are very slow to act. I've also tried 30c and 200s without little luck. I'm stumped. I've even thought about using higher strengths such as 1x..any ideas?

Hi Niel, I'm a 49 y.o bachelor male, 6ft tall and about 15st a bit overweight, I suppose. I consider myself quite cheery but also moody. I went through a lot of high anxiety, depression and panic attacks in the late eighties and nineties which after much disillusionment with my doctor's attitudes/pills turned to homeopathic solutions 1)arg nit,Aconite,Sulphur, Lycopodium and Calc Carb all helped my mental health greatly(and still do).In my collection is also Graphites and Arnica. I'm a taxi driver of 18 years. This led me to deduce it could be Rheumatic Psoriasis and not stress related as my knees and elbows have the most concentrated psoriasis: but stress does aggravate. I'm also a very independant person who sometimes gets lonely hence Bryonia and Nat Mur.
This recent relapse has gradually come about since I've come back from 3 months in India. I can only guess that the problems/anxieties in trying to get my life back to normal has caused aggravation/eruption. The condition of my skin is the worst and most extensive I have ever experienced and seems more acute than any physical or mental symptoms -which are very subtle. My usual affected areas have dirty dry extra large scales that flake easily and get bloody when scratched. It's my knees, elbows, backs of both hands and inside my ears that have the greatest concentration. New patches have also appeared around my groin and testicles. Since I posted this appeal for info I've been experimenting with Rhus Tox 12c (2 tabs, 4 times a day)and Sulphur 6cs (1 tab, 4 times a day) with some success. I'm definitely feeling more together - but my skin is still distressing. I think I've got the right remedies but am guessing the strength and dosage. If there's any more info you require please do not hesitate to ask. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks.
