Hi galen g
Here are some ideas for both an internal and an external approach.
Psorias may be connected with Vitamin D deficiency.
Many people who find that their condition gets better when they spend plenty of time in the sun get relief in the winter by going to a tanning salon and using the UVB booth.
Others have found other ways to get UVB treatment at home without prescription such as buying UVB lights meant for reptiles kept as pets. If your psoriasis is mostly on your extremities, that might be a good solution for you.
The Vitamin D Council is a good site to find out more about how much Vitamin D3 to take internally during the parts of the year when you don’t get enough sunshine. They will also provide information about how to be properly tested to see whether you’re Vitamin D deficient.
The combination of salt water and UVB (simulated beach!) seems to work especially well for some. Regular cooking salt as well as epsom salts can both be effective when dissolved in a tub full of water.
Finally, while researching gallbladder and liver problems I came across studies which found that taking bile salts to aid digestion can help psoriasis. That would make sense from the standpoint that a diseased or sluggish liver can often manifest itself in various skin conditions.
I hope that helps some!
I have a serious issue… I’ve had this spot on the back of my head for literally 6 years now. I have been to two doctors, the first said it was psoriasis, the second said it may be eczema or psoriasis.
To be honest, I’m a little scared. I know Psoriasis and Eczema are both incurable, but psoriasis can cause health issues, plus it makes you look like a diseased creature and I’m going to be an Officer one day. Who wants Officer Scaleyskin showing up to their domestic violence, and how will people take me seriously?
If it’s eczema, I feel better about that because it’s confined to one spot and doesn’t pose any health issues. If anyone here has either of the skin conditions, please take a look and let me know what you think.
Psoriasis or Eczema ailment?
1) Had this on my head for 6 years.
2) No real spread, it’s stayed local. Only recently has it got bigger.
3) I have scale rashes in my ear, and a small spot on the groin. These have not gone away or got worse in the last year. They started about February.
Other than that, I have no real “symptoms” of Psoriasis, but the spotting doesn’t seem like Eczema.
PICTURE: (Warning, medical picture.)
The black circle area is the small area it first started. I was using a psoriasis treatment liquid up until about 4 months ago, and until then it has never been the left HALF of my head, it was just that one palm sized area… Also, now-a-days it looks rashy, which is a symptom of Eczema, but it looks like Psoriasis… CONFUSED!!
I would put Champori cream for psoriasis on it and see if it helps: I have seb. dermatitis on scalp (which was misdiagnosed numerous times as well) and the champori cream – ounce for ounce – works better than anything else. Try it – it comes with money back guarantee so if it doesn’t work – it’s free.

Facts and Information on Psoriasis
- To reduce dry skin and help psoriasis symptoms, it is sensible to not use shower scrubs, as they not only hurt skin by leaving tiny scratches, they also scrape off the naturally occurring skin oil.
- Although anti-inflammatory solutions may relieve signs of the illness they do not solve the underlying affliction and may not be the best option for cure.
- There may be severe variation between patients in the effectiveness of specific psoriasis treatments and, as a result of this, dermatologists often use a trial-and-error approach to working out the most appropriate treatment for their patient.
- It has long been recognized that prevalent, short, non-burning exposure to the sun helps to reduce or improve psoriasis.
- Psoriasis is often a lifelong condition; there is currently no cure but numerous treatments can help to reduce the symptoms that affect the patient.
- Psoriasis can become worse over time but it is not possible to predict who will go on to develop extensive psoriasis or those in whom the disease may appear to recede.
- The scaly patches caused by psoriasis, known as psoriatic plaques, are points of inflammation and intensive skin production where skin rapidly accumulates.
- Psoriasis plaques usually occur around the skin of our elbows and knees, but can affect any area such as the scalp and genitals.
- Psoriasis is a serious recurring illness which varies in severity from minor localized patches to complete body coverage. Fingernails and toenails are often affected.
- Psoriasis may also cause inflammation of the joints, which is called psoriatic arthritis. Ten to fifteen percent of patients with psoriasis suffer from psoriatic arthritis.
