I'm 19 years old and i just deveolped psoriasis. I'm trying to find the best remedy for it. I literally just developed psoriasis this week. But i thought id share a remedy from witnessing it. My grandmother had it all over her body even on her face. My brother who is now 20 had scalp psoriasis. My brother who had scalp psoriasis used a shampoo called T-gel. It can be found at any grocery store or pharmacy. He used it for about a month or so and the psoriasis disappeared after ritual use. It has been gone and hasnt come back for about 5 years now. I would recommend using that if you have psoriasis on your scalp. I read that products that have tar in it really helps.. and this shampoo is for many things such things simple as dandruff to psoriasis. I recommend it. I do not have scalp psoriasis. I just developed it on my right index finger tip. I thought i had very dry skin that was irritated but i found out its psoriasis, i will be seeing a dermatologist this week to see what he recommends. But if anyone has any recommendations for me that really worked for you please let me know.

I would try these remedies first and leave the Derm until it gets bad… As when I had only one spot that I lived with for over a year think it was ashy elbow I went to a term after a year of ignoring it.. I used there medicine and I broke out the worse I ever could imagine… Thats my experience!

Used T/Gel for awhile then started using Jason Dandruff Relief (available at Amazon.com). It has Sulfur, Salicylic Acid and Neem Oil. It seemed like it cleared up the 'patch' of psoraisis I had overnight. Good Luck!

I used T-Gel && T-Sal and neither has worked for me.

I myself have been dealing with red dry thick scaly patches on my sideburn and temple area for the past eight months. In that time I have seen two dermatologists, the first charged $145 a visit (went three times and was diagnosed with scalp psoriasis) During that time I was injected with Cortisone, prescribed Lamisil Tablets, Clobex Spray, and Triamex Cream. I was told to use T-Gel shampoo with Coal Tar and leave it on for several minutes and if possible leave it on and go out in the sun. I tried Vaseline, Baby’s Butt Cream, Vicks Vapor Rub, Aloe Vera, Tea Tree Oil, Oatmeal Paste, an Epson Salt Soak, Jason’s Dandruff Shampoo, Apple Cider Vinegar, swimming in the ocean hoping the salt water would help and other home remedies I can’t even remember. Not seeing any results I decided to go to a Kaiser dermatologist (covered through my insurance and a $5 co-pay) and he diagnosed my problem as seborrheic dermatitis and not scalp psoriasis. I informed him of the medications I was previously prescribed and he said Clobex is a very strong steroid and warned against using it. He basically said I have three options, which were to do nothing and eventually it should probably go away on its own. Number two, I could use a over-the counter cream or number three, try using Fluocinonide Topical Solution (Lidex) twice a day for two weeks along with T/Sal Shampoo with Salicylic Acid 3.0%. Of course I chose the third option and after one week I have seen amazing results. There are no more scaly patches, my skin is smoother and the redness is starting to go away. On top of that the itching is completely gone. He suggested using the medication for two weeks but if it should go away before that to stop using it since the skin will build up a resistance after two weeks and if I should have another flare up in the future to start the process all over again. I hope this helps since what you have might not be psoriasis at all.
