Sween Cream plus flaxseed oil capsules

March 18, 2013 — 8:03pm
I am 64 years old and my psoriasis is now the best it has been since it appeared in high school. I began using Sween Cream after a friend told me she used it on her skin that had been burned by radiation treatments for breast cancer. It helped me quite a bit and now […] Read more »

T/Sal, cod liver oil, Vaseline

February 26, 2013 — 11:00pm
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 […] Read more »

Tanning and emu oil

February 18, 2013 — 5:49pm
I have guttate psoriasis which once covered about 75% of my body. I was feeling hopeless. It was mentally and physically painful. Tanning in a tanning bed seemed to work the best, almost completely clearing the psoriasis from my torso, back and head. Then I saw a sample of emu oil in a drugstore and […] Read more »

Natural arthritis treatment

February 15, 2013 — 10:23pm
I wanted to let people in on what I have learned from different sources. I have psoriatic arthritis presently in my hip, feet and ankles (though I think that it is spreading). I take 200 milligrams each evening of primrose oil (four pills) and flax seed oil (two pills) daily. Both of these oils are […] Read more »

Gel gloves, booties and gelbows

February 14, 2013 — 7:43pm
Although they are a little pricey ($25 or so for the gloves and booties, $10 for the gelbows) these gel lined items have done wonders for my feet and hands. I put on 100% pure shea butter and then put on my little gloves and booties (and gelbows for the elbows). You can leave them […] Read more »

Aveeno oil

February 8, 2013 — 8:52pm
I found using Aveeno oil for sensitive skin on the scalp works for me. I apply it in the evening, wrap my head in plastic wrap and let it soak overnight. In the morning I wash out and comb with a fine tooth comb to remove scales. Aveeno oil is available in most grocery stores […] Read more »

Omega 3-6-9 capsules

February 6, 2013 — 11:02pm
I have had guttate psoriasis for 34 years and it always fluctuates between being good and bad based on stesss, weather, etc… I have gone through years of creams, light treatments and avoidance altogether until a friend told me about Omega 3-6-9 gel caps with flax, borage and fish oil. My skin has improved markedly […] Read more »

Holistic approach to psoriasis

February 6, 2013 — 6:51pm
I have suffered with pretty bad skin for about 17 years now. I tried everything and found some of the best remedies to be the natural alternatives: 1. After showering, a blend of jojoba oil, with lavender (10 drops), cedarwood (5 drops) and bergamot (3 drops) really helped to heal and prevent outbreaks. 2. Keep […] Read more »

Doak Oil

February 4, 2013 — 11:32pm
I have had guttate psoriasis for five years. Recently a friend recommended DOAK oil. I was a bit hesitant because I am allergic to the tar treatments recommended by my dermatologist. After a particularly itchy week I relented and tried dabbing DOAK oil on my spots with a cotton ball. The itching stopped right away […] Read more »

Any oil will do

February 4, 2013 — 7:37pm
I have used canola and olive oil on my scalp with great results. Many people seem to leave it on overnight but I have found that leaving it on for just half an hour is fine. That way you don’t have to deal with wearing a shower cap to bed. I also use a plastic […] Read more »
