I've suffered from scalp psoriasis for over 15 years and recently tried jojoba oil after a new hairstylist recommended it. After 3 days, the patches along my hairline have almost completely disappeared. Its more soothing and less greasy than coconut or olive oil, plus it has anti-inflamitory properties, which is good for psoriasis.

I find cutting out sugar, alcohol and processed foods help a lot, but that can be a hard diet to follow.

I also have perioral dermatitis. Anyone else have both psoriasis and pd? I wonder if they are at all related.

Because of the diet modifications you mentioned, it actually sounds like you have a candida problem. I had a problem that was the result of psoriasis and candida. I did an intense candida cleanse for 10 months and now I am treating the psoriasis. I would not have needed to keep up the candida cleanse for so long but I did not knwo about the psoriasis portion. Most people can get rid of candida in about 6 months.

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, an Epson Salt Soak, Jason’s Dandruff Shampoo, Apple Cider Vinegar, 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.
