Hey there Danielle, Karen and Tauris,
Here are a few suggestions for treating your psoriasis:
Use Cortizone cream on it.
Try Denerex shampoo.. after you suds it up leave it on for about 5 mins.
It can get infected so use some triple antibiotic stuff, like Neosporin (sp?), put it on at night, then wash your hair (only the area effected) with the Denerex, then put the Cortizone Cream on it. Try doing that routine for a few days.
Remember, that folks with psoriasis are more likely to get psoriatic arthritis, have your doc check you for it, the symptoms are alot like FMS. I talked to my doc. last time about it but he doesn't think I have it, but be sure your doc knows you have psoriasis (I had never told my doc.).
Weird how we share this and I still wonder how many of us might have this and they may not be aware of it.
