Does MSM have any impact on cell division? The latest theories on psoriasis indicate that the lower layers of skin cells in the affected areas grow at a rate much faster than the epidermis sheds. As a result, the plaques form. For this, I take methotrexate in doses approximately double what patients usually take it for - rheumatoid arthritis.

Bottom line - might MSM, with all its benefits, hasten cell growth, thereby exacerbating the psoriasis?
