Been afflicted about 40 years; leaving a little part of me wherever I go

My tip for today. Find a cheap 'beer chiller' fridge thing. They're small and cheap; then keep you creams, oils and other ungents in it. Nothing finer than chilled cream on fiery skin x.

Has anybody found wearing amber making a difference? x

I was using tiger balm, red, for a headache and, on a whim, rubbed the excess onto a small patch of P. Much to my suprise it seemed to make s difference. I'm now using it daily on two patches and it's really making a difference; nearly clear. xx

I think the worst part of p., especially when it first appears, it understanding that it's no tgoing to go away; there is no cure. Once you understand that it is ' your friend for life', that you have to adjust on a daily basis, things get easier xx

Greetings all and a good, and calm, new year to you. Just made a new batch of moisturiser. This time, before adding honey, which didn't mix properly last time, I whisked the honey with Almond oil, bit like making mayo, then added to the half set mix

Solstice blessings. May clarity of body and mind follow you through the turning of the year xx

I find it importatnt to treat the 'soul' as well as the body. Played a gig last night; outside but under cover, next to a river, pouring with rain, had to turn the amps up to drown out the noise, played in jackets and fingerless gloves, but fantastic

My latest moisturising concoction in my aim to eliminate all outside, comercial, processes. E.V. Coconut oil, Almond oil, Beeswax, Honey, Neem, Lavender and TeaTree essential oils. Melted together then cooled, whipped and kept in the fridge xx

My latest bath experiment. My usual medicinal bath oil, Balneum, plus lavender, tea tree and black pepper oils. If it doesn't help at least I smell interesting xx

Best weekend for a very, very long time. Saturday; sorted my flat then went out with my camera. Slept for 8 1/2 hours without waking then played a nice afternoon gig, Gin & Jazz, at a local cocktail bar; first for ages. Bed now, a happy man xx

Greetings fellow flakers. I've just spent a year enduring the most constant, intense stress (family, extreme) ever. Mind & body raging nonentities; somebody stepped in and removed the stress 'cos they were worried about losing me. What follows is how

Haven't posted lately 'cos I've got too much to say. I've concluded that psoriasis, to me, is a reactive problem. I'm better than I was but not as good as I'd like to. It help to devolpe improvisational awareness xx

Bad weekend; very little sleep, very inflamed skin. Trying vit D analogue but need to use a third of the tube at a time. I sometimes find it hard to remember that it will improve. Experience tells me another 9-12 months for this flare.

Going to try circuit and black pepper. Anyone tried and what happened? xx

Sitting here unable to sleep so I'm using the time to practise learn new songs. Right now though I'd rather be asleep.

Anybody tried Turmeric. I read one article suggesting it was great on P but I haven't found any others

Greetings all. Just trying to get over a major flare, caused by 13mnths of unrelenting stress, probably 60% coverage. I want to make my own creams and need a good, light carrier for the oils. Somebody suggested yogurt, any thoughts or alternatives.
