Aloe to relieve itch

January 17, 2014 — 5:23pm
I use an aloe plant, and it feels very soothing! I just cut a small piece of the plant off, peel the skin back a little and start massaging it into my skin. It’s not a cure, of course, but it sure helps the itching… tremendously! Read more »

Merino Lanolin Skin Creme for soles of feet

March 29, 2013 — 8:08pm
After a trip to the state fair in Minnesota, I now use Merino Lanolin Skin Creme on the soles of my feet. I apply it every day before I put my socks on. My primary care physician said today, “What do you use? I know how bad your feet used to look.” Most of the... Read more »

Taclonex

March 25, 2013 — 8:02pm
I’ve been diagnosed with psoriasis for several years and have tried several prescription ointments. Last December, a dermatologist prescribed Taclonex. It’s a little pricey but worked a miracle for me. After only three days of use my itching and flaking was stopped dead. A week later, the skin looked and felt normal. This worked for... Read more »

Home-made concoction for the scalp

February 25, 2013 — 10:03pm
Scalp psoriasis is stubborn and remedies are expensive. After years of using costly products, I now make my own. I buy a tube of over the counter cortisone cream from a “dollar store” and squeeze 1/3 into a plastic bottle. I add enough hot water to make a thin lotion. I then add Neutrogena T-Gel... Read more »

Arbonne moisturizers and phototherapy

February 22, 2013 — 5:51pm
I found a company called Arbonne that sells Rejuvenating Cream and a skin oil product. The two combined helped me control my guttate itching until the light treatments started to work. I am still doing the Arbonne products and light treatments as well. My skin has never been so soft. Read more »

Tanning bed

February 13, 2013 — 5:46pm
I have found that laying in a tanning bed 1-2 times a week, my psoriasis does not itch or become aggravated. As long as I tan once or twice a week it does not appear at all. I’m not sure if it’s the light or the tanning lotion, but it helps me. Good luck Read more »

Medicated Chest Rub and Psoriasin Gel

February 11, 2013 — 9:34pm
I am the clearest I have been since I first developed psoriasis 30 years ago. I have a moderate case of psoriasis which is always worse in the winter. I use a non-namebrand Medicated Chest Rub at night and Psoriasin Gel in the morning. (These are both available at Wal-Mart.) After only one month, my... Read more »

Skin Zinc spray

February 11, 2013 — 8:53pm
My dad and I both use a product called Skin Zinc. He saw it on TV and it cost about $100 dollars for a small bottle of solution/spray and cream. (It’s now over the counter and cheaper.) The cream didn’t help, but the solution worked wonders for both of us. After applying it on our... Read more »

Aloe vera

February 6, 2013 — 9:31pm
I have been using the aloe vera gel that is sold with the tanning products. It is in a bottle and dyed green. I am amazed at how this instantly stops the itching and within a week, my scales are hardly noticable. I am going to look for another aloe vera gel without the dye,... Read more »
