I have tried just about everything for my P, but find what works best for me is Elocon cream applied for 5 day periods, tith a week or so between treatments because it is a steroid cream.
I have been using a raw honey mask applied to my scalp for one week now. The results after the first treatment were very remarkable. My scales just lifted off my scalp in great numbers. I have been on every prescription shampoo for scalp sebborhea and none have worked. It was very frustrating. I have done the honey four times now and all my scales and flaking are 95% GONE!!!!!! I will do this every other day for four weeks then one treatment per week will be done to maintain this miracle treatment. Give it a try.....what have you got to lose but scales and itching.
I have been looking for relief from my psoriasis for 10+ years now. I have tried many remedies including biologicals, topicals, tanning, lotions and crazy potions. With the exception of Enbrel the other treatments all provided limited relief.
After spending the summer of 2014 dealing with the patches on my elbows, legs, feet, hands and scalp I needed to try something outside of the box. After doing much research online following is the daily regimen I have been following since July. While the patches disappear slowly it has been nothing short of a 'miracle'. My hope with sharing is that this will work for another fellow sufferer ....
1. Supplements - I take 1 tablet every day with a meal Multivitamin, 10,000 IU D3, Tumeric 500 mg and Milk Thistle 1000 mg
2. I no longer use soap and instead have replaced it with Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash along with their Intensive Repair shampoo and conditioner
3. After showering I apply Vaseline Deep Moisture Creamy Formula and use Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion as needed throughout the day
These are the best results I have achieved and is very affordable. I will be wearing my shorts again next summer.
Have patience and good luck:)
I've had psoriasis for over 30 years and have tried countless remedies. Most recently one of two things worked, albeit inadvertently! Doing them together would not amount to any type of hardship.
First eliminate all GMO oils from your life. That means if it doesn't say organic, don't use it. This also includes the consumption of commercial fried foods which are mostly deep fried in canola oil aka vegetable oil. The list, to be safe, includes canola, corn, soybean and plain vegetable oil (which can be any one or a combo of these three). These plants have all been highly genetically modified.
The other thing I did unknowingly and then confirmed through readings was consume lots of home made bone broth. In my case I went on a home made chicken soup craze in some quest to rekindle a culinary legacy of my grandparents. During this period my psoriasis completely cleared up. Apparently the collagen/gelatin you get in bone broths is amazingly restorative. I suggest the book Healing Broths by Sally Fallon for a great write up and great recipes.
Unfortunately perhaps, I did both of these at the same time and watched my psoriasis vanish over the coarse of a month. Didn't realize it until much later so was unable to say if it was 100% one or the other. Good chance both were great moves in and of themselves.
I have had Psoriasis for about 3 years now. I finally realized that drinking alcohol and milk aggravates P. I have tried everything from salt baths to coconut oil...etc. A great moisturizing agent called Aquaphor Healing Ointment works great. It is similar to petroleum jelly, but just not quite as thick. Its great to put on after your shower/bath. Hope this helps!
For ladies..my Psoriasis gets worse every month right before my period. I have yet to see a doctor to figure this one out.
Lanoline heavy duty moisturiser works a treat have tried all prescribed treatments but that didnt work and my mother in law saw this lady who makes it apinninglady on the web works wonders a must for sufferers
I suffered with scalp psoriasis for about fifteen years and during that time I tried many different remedies. Some prescribed and also over the counter medicine but nothing worked. The condition progressively got worst over years especially after two pregnancies. I got to a point where I was desperate to find a remedy that would help. After researching my problem I found Oil of Oregano. I mix it one to one parts with organic coconut oil. The mixture tends to be somewhat strong so it can be diluted further. My hair had thinned significantly and is now grow healthy and thickening again.
I have been dealing with an ugly red patch on my left ankle for several years, then, this past winter, another patch appeared on my left forearm. The ankle patch was about the size of a lemon, the patch on my forearm about the size of a small banana.
After reading through many of these remedies, I decided to use a three pronged approach. I began on July 1st.
1. Stop using all commercial soaps, body washes, shampoos and conditioners, and begin using artisan type soaps and shampoos from my local coop w/o all the fragrances, colors and other chemical ingredients.
2. Stop eating all nightshade veggies such as tomatoes, sweet and/or hot peppers, eggplant, white potatoes, paprika, blueberries, etc.
3. Take a zinc tablet every AM and PM, 50 mg per tablet.
I am very pleased to say that the patches are just about gone, just some VERY SLIGHT pinkness, no more peeling or scaling. I believe that all signs of the patches will be gone by the end of September, three months of this plan.
I bought a medicine that is from Mexico & it works . But you can't mix it with other medicine or else it won't be as strong anymore . It's called Dermatovate 40g You can find it at some Mexican stores. It's about $60 bucks. Also if you don't wanna spend much, you can get clobetazol or barmisil. It works the same but it's not as strong. Hope it works for you!
I am suffering from P for about 2 years now. I know it's just a short time but I know you understand how hard it is having P and not being able to wear normal blouses or shorts or cute dresses.
It started on my upper legs and eventually disappeared. However, it started spreading on my scalp, my lower leg, my arms, and my back.
I went to a dermatologist and was prescribed some ointments which worked for a while but didn't clear up everything. I also stopped using it at some point because it's expensive.
I've been reading through this site for the past year and tried those Epsom salt, baking soda tips but didn't make my P any better. I didn't want to go on a diet because food is my only happiness in this stressful world. I also didn't take vitamins because I always forget taking it.
The past weeks however, I felt so ugly and I hated myself for having P. Now I am doing these things and I feel better:
I bought Clobetasol ointment. I know that this should not be used for a long time but I was desperate. It worked. The P on my arms and back are now gone. The brand I used was Clonate. However I didn't apply it on my legs because I would then be applying it on my whole legs and that would not be good.
I started drinking Vitamin D3 (5000IU) and Zinc (50mg). Now I am also drinking probiotics, fish oil, and selenium. I think this helps me stay clear and it calms the redness of whatever I have on my legs.
I also don't eat tomatoes or anything tomato-based because I learned that it makes my P so red and itchy.
As for my scalp I haven't found a treatment yet though I am hoping that in the long run it will be removed, with all these vitamins I am taking.
I am also trying to cut out on my intake of sugar and processed foods. It's hard, but I want to be cured!
I will purchase Argan Oil soon since I heard that it can treat P and will update you as to how it goes.
Hope I helped! Hit me up if you have any questions, I'd be more than happy to answer them. This website has helped me realize that I am not alone and this is my way of repaying all you guys who shared your treatment. :)
