i have had psoriasis since i was little. it is an auto immune disease associated with the liver. i have had good response from taking milk thistle.
the creams that the docs give work for a little bit then you become immune to them and they stop working.
pred gets rid of psoriasis like a charm. i look great when im flaring, but when im well, i look like crap. darn!
i find that cocoa butter lotion works great.
if you can get shampoo withOUT sodium laureth sulfates in it, that is good.
that stuff aggrivates psoriasis on the scalp.
winter is always worse than summer.
pools and the ocean are good and the sun.
tanning salons help as well.
if you have any questions about psoriasis, just ask, as ive been dealing with this most of my life.
