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.
