Hi Guys,

Wanted to share my story.
I've had this for a few years to a variety of degrees and by chance stumbled across Forskolin by accident.
When used in conjunction with Daivobet, it has cleared all the plaques.
Normally when I use Daivobet, the plaques do eventually return however when using 50-100mg of active Forskolin along with 600mg of NAC, I have been clean!
 
Hope my story helps someone out there.

Hello, new here

Ive had psoriasis for 10 years. I found a cure, but since there's no advertising here, I can tell you its on Ebay from China and Top Rated, not all too expensive and within 3 days, the red flaky patches disappear and its left clear and smooth. It lasts, for me, for a few weeks to a few months until I get super stressed again. Ive told many people about it and I always get flowers or cards as a big thank you.
Tanning also has cleared me up completely! I use Intrigue tanning lotion. 3-4 days after tanning everyday I see smoother clearer skin, patches gone. And a golden brown tan to boot
That being said, I noticed Ive never been in remission for more than 2-3 months. As soon as I get stressed, I start to itch and here it comes.
Now I have these lil pink bumpy itchy patches on the top part of your fingers where a ring would sit. Every finger, but no where else. What is this?? I dont wear jewelry, ever. It cant be a contact rash
The stuff I use doesnt help it. But it has to be connected because Ive been plagued by this forever.
Im starting Omega 3 fish oil supps tonight. Hoping to cure it from the inside out.
I also have it in a few places Ive never had it before, which is making me nervous that my immune system is weakened because this disease starts there.
Any comments or advice would be greatly appreciated!

I developed psoriasis on my elbows years ago and I managed but 2 years ago I started getting little red itchy bumps on my fingers and it has been down hill from there. I have a drawer full of useless medications, I have spent hundreds of dollars on OTC stuff. Even friends and family would show up with things to try. I spend most nights with an ice pack wrapped around my hands to keep down the swelling and so I can sleep, and band aids covering the cracks on my fingers to keep them clean and hidden. I am the manager of a retail store and the worse thing I have heard was a little boy ask his mom why I had Zombie hands! I am now developing arthritis and some days can't even hold a pen or pick things up with my fingers. My nails are short and stubby, during bad flare ups my nails separate from the beds and I always have blood splinters under my nails. The skin it self is split, cracked and patchy and recently has spread to the palm of my hands, which itch so bad I have scratched them open. So here is my query, has anyone been on the anti depressant Cipalex and have any problems like this. My hubby was the one who realized that I started on this medication the same time the flareups got bad, we always thought it was just the stress of life.

I have been taking vegetarian Omega 3 supplements. The fish oil based omega 3 supplements won't do because I am a vegan. Also, after some research I found that fish oil has no Omega 3 fatty acid, or has very little traces because of the food chain of the fish.
So, basically I have been on vegetarian pure DHA omega 3 for 2 years and my skin has never been such a smooth texture before. And my hair sings :)

Hi - new to this. Have had a touch of psoriasis most of my adult life (runs in my family). 6 months ago it flared up around my face and ears - has spread to arms / legs / and back a bit. My face was the the worst - swollen, flaming red, stinging and itchy...research identified it as pustular type. Having no faith in MDs to treat this b/c everything I read from people reported that drugs might help at first but then it comes back with a vengeance, I sought alternative treatment. A book I read explained that it's NOT a "skin problem" that it's an internal problem that stems from a Leaky Gut. (Toxins escaping through a permeable intestinal wall) Excess toxins where they don't belong will try to excrete via kidney, liver and the biggest organ - the skin!

Now, if you have the predisposition for psoriasis, guess how it will exit!

The relief I got was from dietary changes recommended by a Naturopathic Dr.- foods that keep acidity low thus reducing toxins and inflammation. The slippery elm tea is used to help heal the permeable intestinal wall (over time). Now that things are calmed down - she is testing me for food sensitivities in order to zero in on something in particular that I might be reacting to.

As well, she started me on mega amounts of vit D (I was very low) and on B-12 (also very low.) The thinking here is that my ability to absorb these nutrients has been impaired. (leaky gut?) So for those of you suffering and trying all kinds of pharma - it may be worth the $$ to see a Naturopath for help instead of the Dermos and MDs who seem to focus on treating the skin symptoms and not the causes.

We are what we eat.... I believe that.

Hey guys, this is my first post, but I have been reading here a while. Some background, I have Psoriasis was first diagnosed when I was 5, which I understand is unusually young. I am now 30 and have tried EVERYTHING you can try without a prescription. As a note, Psoriasis is attributed as an auto immune disease and will adapt to most topical treatments, so it has to be treated externally as well as internally. I am fortunate most of my flare ups are on my scalp.

No one thing is a guaranteed fix as we are all different, but anti-oxidants help, amino acid supplements like L-Lysine help, and it always helps to take vitamins and avoid stress that can cause the flare ups to begin with. I have moved from the Pacific North West, to the South West and then the North East. Sun exposure helps, so vitamin-d has to help (internally and topically), topical vitamin A helps (like in Vitamin A&D Ointment) and capsaicin helps topically while it burns some it penetrates the heavy plaque and stops the lesions from itching for intervals up to 2 or 3 days which can be a huge blessing, and apple cider vinegar washes also help, like a chemical peal it strips off the plaque and slows down the itching. Medicated shampoos are awesome but you have to switch it up regularly so you don't adapt.

Hello & welcome to the forum. It sounds like you are having some success with what you have written here. Anything reasonable is worth trying I think. Does one side of your body break out worse than the other? My right side is always much worse than the left.

Keep us posted on how you are coming along.....Susie

Hi, I have hypohydrotic ectodermal dysplasia. I'm not entirely sure what the difference between the both is since what you all are describing sounds like what I have. Anyways I thought I would share my story. When I was younger I was completely covered in soars. They itched like crazy. about 10 years ago I had my appendix taken out and was given a large dose of antibiotics. When I awoke I was cleared of everything. It was like I was I never had it. I am now 20 and haven't had has any problems with my skin until about 2 years ago. Now my arms are slowly becoming a tragic wreck. I have terrible soars that are now constantly itching. And I'm scared that if I itch at them then they will spread even more. The only thing that has significantly changed in my life is that I moved from California to Washington...

Hi all,
I've had psoriasis since I was 6. It appeared on my arm and my parents tried all manner of weird things to resolve it including strange diets and uv treatments. Eventually it faded away and I forgot all about it.
Some 10 years later it reappeared. Within two months it was all over my body.
My final year of high school was spent trying to cover my spots and using cortisone creams and eventually methotrexate, wish I took once then stopped due to the long term side effects I read about (my doc said it was the only thing to use and didn't warn me about the negatives). I also tried chickweed, pine tarsal baths and other strong smelling treatments to no avail.
Nothing worked until I tried Chinese medicine. An amazing doctor assessed my stress levels, studied my diet, my lifestyle, and provided the following advice: no tomatoes, strawberries, mango, shellfish, coffee. Minimal dairy, minimal meat, minimal bread products. Swim in the sea as often as possible, she said.

She also suggested taking a very good quality omega 3-6-9 supplement. The difference in cheaper omega supplements is the mercury level and omega level. They were quite expensive, around $60 for 40-50 capsules. I also added vitamin e oil capsules. Green tea.

Acupuncture and acupressure were weekly occurrences until they became fortnightly, then monthly. The results were astounding. After 3 long years of having huge sections of my body covered in psoriasis it had all but disappeared in a little over 6 months. My lifestyle was much the same, my stress levels too, but I had a newfound freedom. I could wear sleeveless tops, skirts that didn't go to my ankles, bathers at the beach without feeling ashamed!

It came back but not until my late 20s and only on my right elbow. Annoyingly stubborn. My Chinese doctor retired and moved back to China so no help there. I am back taking my omega 3-6-9 and have started acupuncture again, I've tried Epsom salt baths which alleviates an itching but I think this stubborn patch is going to hang around for awhile...

That's amazing! I've worked at GNC, I heard that fish oil helps to reduce the inflammation but not sure if it helps psorasis. I am trying both of Omega 3 and Vitamin D3 now, and the external Vitamin E,A,D cream on the affected area. I hope they would help!

Well I also want to let everyone know that my 30 years of Psoriasis all over my body very bad, is all gone today. It happened 2 days ago. I am taking Vit D3 12000 IU a day. I try to get in the sun as much as possible but I live in the NW and we get little sun here. esp here at the coast.
But anyway it is all gone. A miracle. I lost every little spec of Psoriasis on my body everywhere. I have pictures to prove it. I was going to try the Omega 3 also but it is gone now. I cant believe how my skin feels so soft and like silk. I have had it all but maybe 10% of my body. I also prayed a lot so as far as I can tell you it is a miracle even the vit d3 only taking it for 3 weeks couldn't make it go away in 2 days all of a sudden. But anyway that's what I did. thanks  yeah

Now I can say the same thing. My psoriasis is almost gone! I have been dealing with this illness for 4 years and now, it almost left my body. Its because I choose nonsteroidal products. Especially Coresatin.

Hello, I have had scalp psoriasis for over 7 years now. It was just a tiny bump
like a pimple at first and I was too busy working hard and
never took care if myself. This co includes with the sulfites sensitivity
as well which I had but did not know. Only knew I got chest
pains and all the reactions but again too busy to worry about it.
Now my sulfites issue is really bad but I am getting help from friends
on the sulfites forum.
I hope someone can guide me for the scalp psoriasis ass from the
one little pimple turned half my scalp now into a terribly painful
head with red patches and ugly lesions and plaques.

I will really be eternally grateful and will appreciate any
guidance towards healing this, I just can't handle this and sulfite and
Salycylates (wrong spelling?) Sensitivity, spondylysis of back, etc.
Thank you
Yash :)

10 years had pass since i was diagnosed with a mild psoriasis. Mine looks different. It starts with red spots and turn darker then scales up. They grow anywhere. I hade visited a lot of skin experts and provided me with a bunch of creams that didn't work even a little. Then one day, someone suggested me to use Fuchingsung-n cream from china. I was 2 years building up scales all over my body even in my neck. I was very lonely those days because I was a teenager. Most of them noticed it and avoided me. Until when I used that cream before I slept, the morning I touched my arms, they were very smooth and I was amazed. And i noticed it worked overnight. All the spots dried up and and turned to white spots. and everything disappears slowly within some months. Now i may look normal these days. I still had it but its not big deal. They are still coming out when stress and on cold weathers. My face dont have it only on the areas that arent exposed to sunlight. My girlfriend doesnt care about it and I am happy. I just need to accept it and enjoy life. I just wanna share this experience of mine hoping that this could help other as well. :)

Heres the image of the cream.

Hi
Thank you, I will try to find this. Someone had answered me a long time ago saying that pala indigo (also known as wrightia tinctoria) was what she used with nivea petroleum jelly, but I could never find this pala indigo anywhere, so I could not try it and what was just a tiny bump is now almost half my scalp, very itchy and sore and headaches from it when I am scratching or rubbing the area, very painful.

I will try this cream, if it worked for you and hopefully will work for me. I appreciate it, thank you.

I started drinking 15ml (1 table spoons) chlorophyll (you can buy it in the health store) once every day and using goat soap for showers. And my P is slowly going away, the patches is becoming lighter too. its only been three week .. I stopped using other med /cream that the doctor gives me; it doesn’t really work on my P. I started running 3 times a week too; basically I am detoxifying my body, I done alot of research on p and found out that the reason we get p is that when your body is really toxic, in start to get in to our blood and the body is trying to removed it but end up showing on our skin. Chlorophyll act as a purifier, so by drinking its, its slowly removing the toxic in our blood! With goat soap its contain an α hyro that help us to break off the dead cell. hope its help!

So would I wash my hair and scalp with the goat soap as I have
P on my scalp? This really makes sense with the chlorophyll.
Thank you. Yash :)

Hello I am new to this site. I live on The Northwest coast of the state of Oregon of the US. VERY LITTLE Vitamine D or sunshine here.

Psoriasis has been a issue for over many years. Since a small child, as I am retired now. I use occlusion , with derm prescribed steroids (Clobetasol .05%) alternate the steroid cream with many other creams such as: a good one to remove scales OTC IN the US or ONLINE is Dermarest , W/ salicylic acid to remove scales. Then I use the occlusion method to apply steroid cream to penetrate to the small blood capillaries that feed the psoriasis. The occlusion therapy helps shut down the tiny capillaries blood vessels by application of suran wrap, Glad wrap, or silicone gloves, shower cap for hands and feet. For Over night occlusion poke a few holes in feet and cover suran wrap feet with socks and latex gloves cover with cotton gloves. Scalp cover scalp with coconut oil at any grocery store or olive oil then cover with shower cap over nite. In morning use Paoriasis shampoo only. No foamy shampoos with Laural Sulfates. That's what is put to make shampoos & soaps foamy and even toothpastes. And Laural Sulfates are terrible for P. And noted to cause flares.
Never use steroid cream on scalp/ hair can fall out with the plaques. I also use Cetaphil to shower. Use baby wipes with lanolin to wash my hands then add Medline body cream barrier. Keep skin moisturized especially during harsh winters. Continue this regimen in a few weeks you will see an improvement in P. Flares. Then once improvement is seen, continue the steroid application to 3 times a week then 4 times a week with alternating non-steroid cream with nightly occlusion until skin is clear.

Silicone Glove is a barrier and Moisture Therapy cream by Avon or Eucerin creams. Even medicated Vicks, Crisco white can veg. Oil, & olive oil, Zinc used for diaper rash like Desitin, also great for use during occlusion for non-steroid treatments.

For severe itching Benedryl or RX HYDROXYZ HCL 25 mils. , Zantac.
Or other RX that works for you.

Some p. Suffers say food effects their P. Food has never had a effect on my P. Nor climate. I have lived in sunny Ca. Colo. Texas no rhyme or reason for a flare. For some find Stress is a cause for a flare as illness & surgery can to cause flares.

Most city and well water have chemicals irritating for psoriasis. I purchased a shower head that filters out chlorine and most contaminates from pipes. Also use warm water when bathing, never hot will irritate P. and cause itching.

After shower I apply Skin- So - Soft oil by AVON, on dry wash cloth then apply to total body. Let dry a few minutes than I add a moisture Barrier, I use Medline Remedy with Olvamine as used in hospitals for P. Medline also makes a body cleaner foam to wash or wash with glycerine soap. Also I use liquid glycerine for a skin moisturizer. Glycerine is in the connective tissue in the derm layers of the skin. It will help rebuild the skin tissue & stop the itch, provide a good moisture barrier and add alcohol free Witch Hazel which is an anti-inflammatory. Use separately or mix 50/50 in a spray bottle for application to the P. Skin areas. I also use a OTC cream called vit.A & vit.D cream for moisturizer. Also used in hospitals.

Also many herbs are good for P. Google what herbs may work for you. I take green tea, biotin, Quercetin w/Bromilaid , silica complex, vit.D, E, C. Fish oil or squid oil daily. Ask you dr what is recommended for you from prior blood tests to be sure your taking the correct dosage for you.. I take a ton of supplements for various reasons.

Sunshine sets off a chemical reaction in the skin for the body to produce vit A & vit D. For lighter exposure during cooler parts of the day for approx 45 minutes. This is one therapy available in a derm office called, light therapy UVB during the winters especially. If u don't spend 45 min - 1 hr per day it's likely your low in Vit. D which can directly effect a flare of Psoriasis. At least that's some of the science.

I Eat vit. D enriched foods and anti- inflammatory foods. Google for lists you may like. See web sites below. I also stay away from acid foods. PH in the gut and flora like pro biotics plays another major roll in P. Flares. I eat greek yogort every day. Some prefer taking probiotics.

I have been in remission from psoriasis foot and palm and plaque for 3 years now this December 2013.

Recently due to surgery had a flare in my right hand with Psoriatic arthritis. Not fun my hand is a swollen & twisted with frozen fingers another challenge to sort out.Meanwhile back to the rheumy
Has any one had good results with treatment of Psoriatic Arthritis.
A lot of biological meds out there. Not sure my health can handle it at this time. I have a hip joint to be replaced soon.

Medweb.com or mayoclinic.com has more info for the occlusion method and meds and more detailed explanations for Psoriasis treatments . Any questions, I will be happy to help if I can.
(( hugs & clearing to all ))

I have had psoriasis since I was a child. 46 now. I have had nearly every treatment at one time or another: UV, steroids, steroid injections, multiple prescription and over the counter creams. The only thing that cured up my spots nearly completely was coconut oil capsules. Two pills taken once a day healed me in just over a week.

The bummer is I cannot take the pills anymore as they really aggravate my IBS.

Just thought it would be something to share as it worked so well and is inexpensive.
