I m a girl who's had psoriasis since I was 9. I am now 21.

I am wondering if it has anything to do with the removal of my tonsilitis when I was 8, cause I heard that tonsils is essential and removing it will cause lack of immunity in the body.

Its hereditary in my case and I feel so bad about it. I go from depressed to angry about it cause my grandmother and dad from whom I get it make my life from bad to worse. It makes me upset all the more 'cause they are such control freaks and give me no space at all and I have to carry their stupid disease with me and my future generations. I almost don't want to have kids 'cause I don't want spread my disease to my kids and make them hate me for it.

I had only scalp psoriasis till 15. Now I have all over my legs, breasts, forehead scalp ears stomach. Its gives me no reason to want to live at all. Forget aesthetic reasons, it hurts physically- itching, bleeding and cant wax or do anything.

Regarding remedies, nothing ever works permanently. They say homeopathy works but I haven't seen any immediate relief and never tested it long enough to see any benefit either.

I don follow any medication 'cause I have just grown sick of trying and have no hope left.

From experience the ones that did work for me are

1) diavobet oinment
2) neem oil
3) salt water bath
4) not using soap but using natural cleansers (like gram flour with little water to form paste.)
5)steam baths
6) cod liver oil tablets and application.

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.
