I’ve heard that liquid hand soaps dry skin – any truth to this rumour? Also, my husband’s Psoriasis has erupted all over his face and neck and the skin is literally flaking off. It’s awful, but nothing the dermatologists at the hospital prescribe does anything (because they’re treating the symptoms and not attacking the cause which is a faulty immune system). Does anybody know of any skin products that might give him some relief? E45 cream is okay but doesn’t prevent the flaking.
Any liquid soap or gel that has alcohol in it will dry the skin.
Also watch out for toothpastes, shampoos, cosmetics and skin-care products that contain a skin irritant called sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS). It is a foaming agent but irritates skin. Ironically, oe of the products it is commonly found in is aqueous cream, which a recent survey found nine out of ten GPs wrongly recommend for eczema. Try switching to Dexeryl, an emollient that has no SLS and is free from lanolin and fragrance, which can also cause irritation.

I have psorasis on the bottom of my feet, my thumb, and scalp. It flares up in the winter and usually gets better in the summer. I do not have insurance right now and have been using over the counter meds to help. Does anyone have any suggestions of how they help their psorasis?
I have been using sycilic acid for my foot and vasaline has been working wonders for the drying and cracking.
I have heard that fish oil supplements that are taken daily will help. Has anyone heard of this?
The main cause of psoriasis is overreaction of the immune system. I try to eat healthy food and avoid stress as much as I can in order to prevent flare-ups.
After using number of prescription drugs I’ve turned to the natural treatments.
Now I use herbal remedies from serenaskin.com, which aim at the root of the disease – the immune system, and are steroid-free.
After about 2 weeks of using ointment and spray my skin has been cleared up and now I just continue with anti-psoriasis extract, which controls the immune system. My skin has been clear for months now.
It is the only treatment I have found that provides me complete relief when I use it as directed.

ugh, you too, yikes, it’s really a tough one, Some Dermatologists I’ve had prescribed various creams they work for awhile but then it has to be changed, There is some success with one of those utltra violet lamps, you could give that a try.Some people have had success with a product called Repcillin, it’s made from the fat from alligators, ( hence the name ) it’s not by prescription and comes from Africa, smells like Vanilla or lavender, it moisturizes and soothes, You can go on the site and ask for a sample
I have tried the sample and it did help with psoriasis behind my ears. I will be ordering a small jar soon it cost about $ 30.00 – $ 35.00 but a small amount goes a long way.
With shampoos, use a tar shampoo, and mix it up with like, selsun blue, and scapicin, Pythrin etc, use one and then switch to another on alternating days, I had like 3 kinds, Mon and Tue one kind, Wend, Thurs another and Fri,Sat the last,
One more thing,, Some also have used a diaper rash product called Coolbottoms, you may want to try that as well, ( it’s over the counter so no Rx needed )
Sorry I can’t do more for you, most stuff is Rx, or worse, Good Luck to you
ADDED: the 3 types of mushroom support the immune system , which is where psoriasis begins
