I am a 61-year-old gentleman who has suffered with psoriasis for over 25 years. A friend of mine at work, who works in hazardous waste, was about to throw away a bottle of T/Sal [salicylic acid shampoo made by Neutrogena] shampoo because it was one year old. My company makes fragrances for shampoos and other products. He knew of the problems I’ve had with my scalp psoriasis and said, “Try this shampoo. You never know. It might work.” I had tried T/Gel and other shampoos, but never the T/Sal, as I thought the salicylic acid would burn my scalp. Lo and behold, my scalp started clearing, slowly, but better than before with the use of the other shampoos, prescriptive oils and even olive oil. I rub it in and leave for five minutes. About this same time, I had a surprise 80th birthday party for my mother, and got to talking with an uncle about my problems with arthritis (probably psoriatic-type). He told me to take cod liver oil every morning to alleviate the pain. I bought a bottle of Squibb cod liver oil capsules and started taking one every morning, along with my high blood pressure pills and Metamucil for constipation. As of one year and two months since starting all of this, I have one area the size of a pinky fingernail above my right ankle that won’t go away and just a little around my ears that the T/ Sal keeps clear. The rest of my body is in total remission. One other tip is to use Vaseline on the body. It costs very little for a 1-lb. jar, and it keeps the skin very moist after a shower.
