TROD

I have psoriasis and I had major flaking in my scalp. I started using DR miracles oil and shampoo on my scalp and it keeps my scalp flake free.

Tired of Flakes!

Ya know what? I read on one of the pages here about a similar product called Doo Gro....and I have to say after all the stuff the doc prescribed the Doo Groo anti ich oil keeps me flake and scale free longer than any of the harsh chemicals I was shampooing in and lotions applying afterward...seems like the prescription lotions only aggravated the situation by making more flakes and scales...hence you wind up clawing at those things and next you have scabs and more problems. I wash my hair now with Dr. Miracles dandruff shampoo and apply a very thin layer of Doo Groo after towel drying..I have shoulder length hair and I find if you just apply it nightly a very fine coating at the scalp that it won't make you look like you fell into a grease pot. Leaves your hair in rather good condition too...until something better comes along I will stick with the doo groo!

Try using Jason Dandruff Relief (available at Amazon.com). It has Sulfur and Salicylic Acid. Good Luck!

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, Fish Oil, Vitamin D, 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.
