16 Comments for the Psoriasis Home Remedy


I have had psoriasis for over 32 years. Tried all the remedies and finally stumbled on a cure. Throw away every type of soap you have in your house. I am absolutely convinced that something in soap (lye? sulfates?)irritates the skin, the immune system tries to make new skin, infection (bacterial? fungal?) sets in. Creams might smother it, salt may kill it, sun may cook it, but I firmly believe the cycle starts the minute you re-apply soap. There was another post that talked about a mixture of baking soda, salt and lotion. This is basically the cure. However, I only used a paste of baking soda and water. Left it on the plaque until dry (about half an hour) and then showered-WATER only.

I discovered this accidentally when I realized how much hair I was losing. Gave up using shampoo and started using baking soda and a white vinegar rinse. After about 4 months my hair is gorgeous and thick. I noticed that the plaques on the back of my neck were less inflamed. One week ago I tried baking powder directly on plaques and I am now 80 to 90% clear. Hope it works for you.
By the way you can wash your clothes in half baking soda and half borax if you find you are super sensitive to soap. Use white vinegar as a rinse. Throw away dryer sheets, fabric softener. Works in dishwasher, also

I also wanted to add this comment to my previous post. A half and half mixture of lotion and apple cider vinegar seems to work just as well as the baking soda paste and it is less messy. Apply it as many times a day as possible. The smell goes away very quickly. I use shea butter lotion but I don't think it really matters. If you are very inflamed, go slow. It will sting at first.

If you have to wash your hands with soap because you have been working with grease or in the garden, make sure you follow up with a good rinse of vinegar.

If you have thick nails apply cider vinegar under the nails as often as possible. I use a bottle with an eyedropper. My toenails are more and more normal looking every day. But I know that it will take a year or more for them to grow out.


So do you use baking soda directly on your hair and scalp and then rinse with only vinegar? My hair is so thin and my P is right by my hairline so I think it may have something to do with it. I'm willing to try just about anything at this point. Thanks and I really appreciate everyone's input on such serious matters.


I put about 1/8 cup of baking soda in a 16 oz plastic bottle which has a lid and about the same amount of white vinegar in a different cup. Fill each with warm to hot water. Shake up the one with the baking soda. I pour a little of the vinegar solution on my hair and scrunch it through. Then rinse with just water. Pour on the baking soda solution and again scrunch it. Don't scrub hard or like you do when you shampoo. The idea is just to get the strands covered. Rinse. Then finish with the rest of the vinegar rinse. Scrunch and rinse. Be careful not to get into your eyes. Stings a little if you do. Don't use cider vinegar because it will turn your hair red. I dye my hair and white vinegar does not seem to affect the color. The first three times I washed my hair like this, my hair seemed oily but I had been warned about this effect. By the fourth time my hair was just right. I think that it was all the years of hair products being melted off the strands. Most of what they sell is just wax to cover the hair to make it seem thicker. In the process the wax covers the pores and the hair get thinner.

As an update about psoriasis. I reported that the plaques were about 80 to 90% clear. The last 20% or so has been a little more stubborn. The bleeding is gone, the itching is gone. The areas are just rough and slightly raised and slightly red. What was once very large plaques seem to be breaking up with totally clear areas of skin appearing within the border of the plaque.


hi i am 20 years old female.i have lots of hair loss i consulted to dermatologist he said it was psoriasis but i dn't have much itching problem and red patches. but hair loss is very high and dandruff is very high, dandruff is dry in winter season and it was like a paste in summer because i will get wet in my scalp. i used the medicine he gave and used so many other things also but no use. now i have a hope on this remedy. can u please tell me shall we apply baking soda and vinegar to oil hair or dry hair? and for how many days i have to apply? and can u tell me the procedure to use it and what is the amount we have to use this is my mail id pls pls tell me. i am eagerly waiting for ur reply pls.....


Hi, So sorry about your hair problems. I know how scary and awful it is every time you look into a mirror. My answer to your questions was posted about the same time you posted your questions---the post immediately above yours. As for how long to leave the soda or vinegar on your hair--about the same time as you would shampoo.

And I will never, never, never use any type of shampoo or soap on my body or hair again. The only reason we use soap is because in the old days soap was easy to make with animal fat and lye. Soap does not clean any better than baking soda and vinegar.

As far as oily or dry hair. My hair is/was slightly oily. That is why I tend to start and finish with a vinegar rinse. It seems to work better for me that way. But there is a lot of information out there about other people using this technique. In fact, I first came to this site after googling baking soda shampoo.

Hair grows out very slowly. The first thing you will notice(maybe overnight--maybe in about 2 weeks) is a bristle at the base of your hair. That is new hair sprouting.


hi thanq soo much for ur reply. i ll try it now. thanks alot. and i have a doubt that u mentioned something like baking soda shampoo is there any shampoos available in market as baking soda shampoo or we have to use baking soda directly by mixing it with water? and u did tell that before applying baking powder with venigar can i apply oil to my hair?? or we have to apply it to dry hair. i ll wait for ur reply thanq........


I don't know if there is a commercial shampoo made with baking soda or not. But it is so easy and inexpensive to make it yourself, I wouldn't pay for it any other way.

As far as putting oil in your hair, I am unsure how to answer. My hair was oily before I started using this technique. Washed it every day. Now I only have to wash it about every 4 days.

If I were going to put oil in my hair, I would use olive oil. But I really don't have the need for it.

As I said earlier try googling baking soda shampoo. You will find hundreds of testimonials about how to do this. One of the testimonials I read talked about a woman who had washed her hair this way for over 20 years with great results. Good luck to you.


found this posting and has been extremely informative to me as I suffer from extrememly oily hair i wash early in the day by night i look i havent washed in days so will try the baking soda and vinegar.I tried the vinegar wash once but found my hair feeling pretty greasy and dull and was not aware to give it a few days.In addition my mother suffers from severe psoriasis in her scalp so i will def be giving her this tip and will be praying for some long term relief....thank you for your posting....all the best!


Thank you so much for clearing that up! Pun intended. My husband said, 'Cool, that means I can make a volcano on your head!' I can't wait to try it tonight. I've lost so much hair and I agree with you in regards to the shampoos being the culprit.


does this works as well for a two year old my daughter has it bad ni feel so sorry for her
