My scaling has been at it's thickest on my scalp and knees. The knees very painful kneeling down to play with my children etc. My scaling has come right down with a massive focus on very regular moisturising with Aveeno cream, and longer term diet changes. I did used to find that it came in cycles likes you describe, from red and angry but flatter, to dry and white but more scaly.
It can be quite difficult in those times Angie. I find when scaling gets thick and painful I need to keep moisturized constantly. I use the salves I make, it goes a long way and is quite soothing. A trick I have learned is mixing coconut oil with teatree oil, melt together, them pour into small containers and put it in the freezer. Its type of cool down bar. Which is incredibly soothing on inflamed skin. Omega 3 has been a really great addition for me as well. I hope it settles down for you soon! 🌼
Angie I remember one thing for sure. Huge thick patches on my scalp and on my elbows and side of my legs. I am now getting rid of the scarring by using frankincense oil. Just a bit.
One thing about the buildup is that you have to be on top of it. I think soaking in the tube EVERY day with whatever oil, even vegetable oil,then exfoliating with whatever, a brush, salt rub... I actually used one of those foot scrubbers that pedicurists use. Not the roughest side but the more gentle side. Back then I would then apply my recommended doctor creams. I had to do this everyday to get a grip on things. I remember my legs would crack and I'd have blood spots coming through my uniform. Lovely! LOL
I do think though that you might want to try the elimination diet thought if I haven't sent it to you. Figure out why it's so bad by what you take into your body. That's how I began my journey of healing but I did alot along the way. Now at 56 without any autoimmune dis-eases it's a very different life to be healed. I had many different dis-eases. We are all here to help you and there are many ideas.

At 27 psoriasis appeared and quickly spread all over my body and head. I was admitted to hospital for a week to try and break its back. It helped but at the time I was a plater welder and because I had to use a welding hood, gloves and protective clothing nobody else would use any work wear that I used. I had to get a certificate to confirm to the company I worked for and the guys I worked with to prove it was not contagious. At first it played a little on my mind a little but I had a very strong resolve not to let it affect me as I had a wife and three young children and needed my job. Throughout my working life I never let it bother me to much and although sometimes i was well coved just got on with it. Over my working life I worked my way up to yard Manager, Company Manager and Company Director retiring ar 58. So although in the early days yes it did affect my work I didn't let it affect my life. I still have psoriasis on my body and scalp but have to manage it day to day as I have done all my working life. Always stay positive.
