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 »

Clearing psoriasis

March 11, 2013 — 6:48pm
I have had psoriasis for 31 years, saw many doctors, and all the methods never worked. I read an article about psoriasis being caused by a dysfunctioning liver, and clearing would happen if you detoxed your liver and colon. After extensive research and discussions with health food experts I purchased a bottle of Sonne’s #7. […] Read more »

Clobex spray and lotion

February 28, 2013 — 6:48pm
I have recently received relief after having psoriasis over 95% of my body. Many years ago, I had a prescription for DermaZinc with Clobetasol. It was wonderful but then I was unable to get it at any pharmacy. Recently I found a dermatologist who specializes in psoriasis and he gave me a shot and prescriptions […] 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 »

NSAIDs for arthritis, Dovonex, tar and vitamin E for psoriasis

February 22, 2013 — 10:54pm
I am a little reluctant to write this because no two people react to the medications in the same way. I have had psoriasis for nearly 40 years, and I’ve tried many, many different medications. I also have the arthritis to go with it. I have found the nonsteroidal anti- inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) work differently […] 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 »

Diet and bathing tips

January 28, 2013 — 7:10pm
I alternate Grandpa’s Pine Tar soap and Neutrogena T/Gel shampoo [tar product] for one week and Psoriasil Medicated Scalp and Body Wash [OTC salicylic acid product] the next. The weather has been pleasant enough to allow three or four days a week of 20-minute sunbathing. Petroleum jelly is still my most reliable skin protectant. I […] Read more »

Olive oil for scalp psoriasis

January 25, 2013 — 11:16pm
Thank you to everyone who have contributed their stories! I’m 27, and have had moderate (10-20% body coverage) psoriasis since I was 7. I used to use various prescription medications on my scalp, but recently I’ve found that applying olive oil and wearing a hat overnight is a cheaper and equally effective alternative. In the […] Read more »

Treating scalp

January 18, 2013 — 7:21pm
I spent a long time trying to figure out how to treat my severe scalp psoriasis. Here is what finally worked for me: 1) I went to a top-of-the-line dermatologist. It cost me extra money in the short run (top derms in my city don’t take insurance) but it was SO worth it. It was […] Read more »
