16 Home Remedies for Scalp Psoriasis

ETD

Vitamin D and Sunshine ... I've been struggling with scalp Psoriasis off and on for a couple of years. I tried all the OTC shampoos, then my Dr. prescribed some shampoo, all to no avail. She (my Dr.) told me I could take medication that might help, but if it worked, it would be a lifelong prescription. So I started looking elsewhere, places like this forum.

I noticed several people touting the benefits of Vit. D and Zinc supplements, then I noticed other people swearing that exposing it to sunshine is the answer. Then all of a sudden the appropriate synapse connections in my brain lite up, and I remembered my basic nutrition class in collage. No matter how much Vit. D you consume in any given day, it will literally go in one end, and out the other, unused, unless you expose some part of your skin to the sun as a catalyst to start the process of metabolizing it. PEOPLE NEED SUNSHINE!

Now I know all of the alarmist, anti skin cancer dermatologists are going to flame me, but it's the truth, and they can't argue with it. Human beings evolved in the sunshine, not in deep dark caves, but in the sun, and they need a little bit of it, often, in order to process any vit. D they consume.

Bottom line is, I started taking vit. D and Zinc supplements, and making sure I got a little sunshine every day. I'm not talking about a lot, I don't go to the beach and bake myself, I'm talking about going outside in a short sleeve shirt and no hat for at least 15-20 mins. each day ... that's all it takes. You don't even need to expose the areas where the Psoriasis is presenting itself, you just need to let some part of your skin be kissed by the sun, that's all it takes to let your body use it's vit. D.

I'm now Psoriasis free, I'm back on my Johnson's baby shampoo, I'm not taking any supplements, and the vit. D I get in my glass of milk is enough.

Dermatologists should pull their heads out of their butts, and encourage people to get a little sunshine. Not only does it not harm you ... IT'S REQUIRED BY MOTHER NATURE.

sore throat

What you do is boil water, buy local honey. Local honey has the polen to help sore throat. combine the boiling water and keep on low for 3 minutes.
You could also, (if you don't like the taste, buy lemoaid and boil the water and put the lemon in it, boil for 3 min. and drink that.
I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU! because it helped me a lot.

When I became pregnant, I could not longer use the topical steroids that controlled my quite severe scalp psoriasis.I was able to still use the salicylic acid shampoo but it didn't do enough. Strangely enough, I found that just putting Vaseline on the scabs overnight and then washing my hair has totally controlled breakouts. The only downside is that is does make your hair a bit greasy until the second washing, but if you've had s.p. this is a small small problem. Super cheap too!

Mel

At the end of last year, I developed a bunch of white patches in my scalp. At first, my scalp felt tight, and then there was an uncomfortable itch. I tried over-the-counter Nizoral and that made the tightness worse and even made my scalp feel like there were small cuts. Then I tried Neutrogena T-Gel. My scalp didn't feel dry, but the itch and patches were still there. After dealing with this for about 3 months, I finally went to a dermatologist.

The dermatologist prescribed, DermaSmoothe because she said it was dandruff. That did not work and was a complete mess. Then I tried sea salt, This worked very temporarily and dried my hair horribly. After another 2 months, I visited a second dermatologist who diagnosed me with scalp psoriasis.

I was prescribed Clobex as a shampoo and Taclonex to rub in my scalp. This worked. The only issue I had was the using for whatever reason when I used Clobex and Taclonex in the same day, I felt myself having slight trouble with breathing. So I skipped the Clobex and used the Taclonex. No problems with breathing and in fact, the patches, dryness, and itching were gone within 3 days.

Unfortunately, I had to take an antibiotic a couple of months ago and guess what....the patches were back. I rubbed some Taclonex on them and they were gone the next day. That helped me to know what the link is with my scalp psoriasis. Since then, I haven't had any patches, but a once in a blue moon itch. Taclonex holds it at bay. I hope this is helpful for someone who is at their wits end like I was.

SDS

use castor oil at night, shampoo with M-folia shampoo in the morning. This shampoo doesn't contain SLS's but still lathers. No other shampoo has proved as good (buy on line). My scalp became clear after 6 months and has remained totally clear for the last nine months when only shampooing and no longer using the castor oil.
