The condition of this ailment sometimes can flare up or shrink magically which can stays for years or months. The main reason of having this problem is unknown. With the right trigger or a combination of factors, a patient can encounter unanticipated flare up. Some general triggering elements that may lead to psoriasis outbreaks are major illnesses or some kind of shock, pain, other illnesses and an excessive amount pressure.
I’ve tried almost everything over the counter products such as changing my shampoo to something milder, baby lotion, olive oil, petroleum jelly, oatmeal soaks, and plain oatmeal.
It stings and it’s worse on one side of my lower neck, around the hair line. It’s also up in my scalp. I’ve also used Coal Tar and Soothing Menthol. It works for a little while, then comes back. It’s a never ending battle for this, it’s really driving me crazy and now I have to wear gloves to keep from scratching my scales. I know it’s pretty terrible to bear when you’ve got these silvery scales and red raised bumps from the scales.
I’m on Calcium, Magnesium, and Zinc. I’ve noticed a change in my strength in one of my arms that has had surgery. Much more stronger now. I hope the zinc works for my immune system. I was taking fish oil, but I was in the bathroom most of the time from it.
What are your suggestions? I’m willing to try something until I can get to a doctor. I’m strengthening my immune system because it’s an autoimmune disease and it’s not AIDS or anything around it. Psoriasis isn’t contagious luckily.
Petroleum jelly doesn’t work so I found hydrocortisone cream works to stop the itch. Now I’m using baby lotion to moisturize. I’ll try some of those remedies.
