Colorful Solution for Scalp

February 28, 2014 — 10:22pm
I had fairly severe psoriasis on my scalp for more than 30 years. Two years ago, I started dying my hair with henna and indigo, and my scalp gradually cleared. It is totally clear and has remained so for a year now. I order only high-quality, natural, pure henna and indigo, not the prepackaged commercial... Read more »

Apple cider vinegar for scalp & body

March 15, 2013 — 9:50pm
I have had psoriasis on my scalp and torso for about a year. Recently, I have started using apple cider vinegar for my scalp and the scales just rinse off very easily. After I shampoo with T/Sal, I apply Olux and it seems to work more effectively than it would otherwise. Also, the redness and... 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 »

Chlorine & plaque psoriasis

February 20, 2013 — 9:58pm
I noticed that every time I spent a lot of time in the pool my plaque psoriasis cleared up remarkably faster & better than when I was simply using Temovate or Diprolene 2 times a day. Even my scalp–which is thickly covered–improved in the pool. When our local YMCA closed the pool for a week... Read more »

Fragrance-free

February 13, 2013 — 11:20pm
I have had scalp psoriasis since I was 12 (I’ll be 28 next month). I have tried a medicated shampoo and every over-the-counter shampoo you can possibly get. The one medicated shampoo that I tried was when I was still pretty young and hated the way it smelled, so I didn’t give it a fair... Read more »

Shampoos for Scalp Psoriasis

February 12, 2013 — 6:12pm
I have had scalp psorisis for 3 years. Clobex Shampoo is the only product that works for me. I use it with Tarsum Shampoo. My psoriasis always comes back when I stop using the Clobex. Editor’s note: Clobex shampoo is a prescription product with the steroid clobetasol propionate. Tarsum shampoo has coal tar and salicylic... Read more »
