My 5 year old son developed Guttate Psoriasis after a Strep Infection this summer and it has since taken over a small amount of his body.. He is on soo many meds and I was desperate to get him off the meds and try some home remedies.. Well I went on many blogs and found out that Vaseline really works AWESOME for him.. his face was covered with spots and scales from his hairline down to his eyebrows and he had some spots on his cheeks. I have applied Vaseline on his face 2 times a day for the past 3 days so far and his spot are almost completely gone. I also use an extra strength moisturizer on his face so it does not look so greasy for school. The spots on his body are a little tougher to get rid of, but I do see an improvement in the redness. I also use a gentle loofah pad with sentisive skin Dove to scrub the dead skin off.For his hair I read that mixing T-Sal and T-Gel together really works, so I tried it and have noticed a dramatic difference in his scalp itchiness and flaking. He seems alot happier too now that his face and scalp are not so itchy.. :) I have also purchased Dead Sea Salts since I have heard many good thing about it for Psoriasis.. Wish us luck and hopefully it will help along with the Vaseline..
