I don’t have P but my 13 yr old son does. I’m so grateful to have found this site in my quest to help him!

6 weeks into a bio. 100% clearance. I was afraid to treat it medically before but now I am so glad. It was a great decision for us.

Starting the boy on a bio in 2 weeks. P is raging, spreading and taking its toll emotionally. It’s worth the risk.

I was at a Thanksgiving dinner tonight and could smell coconut oil on someone. I couldn’t help but wonder who else had psoriasis.

Started the boy on Phototherapy today. Praying for good results 🙏

I would like to treat P w/ diet &natural alternatives but my stubborn kid gets to stressed. His scalp &forehead is getting very bad, body is not improving &so much tention between us around treatment. For the sake of his mental health trying a bio.

Does anyone used cold fx ? It’s basically ginsing & works by boosting the immune system. I’ve found it extremely effective in warding off colds. He’s got a cold starting &I’m afraid to give him something that may increase an immune response & P

Regarding coconut oil soaks do they have to be warmed? My son now refuses do do them. He says hates them to much. That the dripping as it’s being applied makes him crazy and that he has tried to accept them but can’t. ‘Won’t’ is more like it 😀😭

What do you think is a more effective blast for clearing up the scalp with a prescription treatment. Steroid spray or steroid shampoo?

I’ve read that sodium Laureth sulphate a common shampoo ingredient (foaming agent) can be a skin irritant. If found only 2 shampoos with out it. 1 type of Avalon and Aveeno baby.

How long do you try a topical treatment and/or shampoo before you decide if its working or not....I hear sometimes things get worse in the healing process.

Hard to know what to do about my sons terrible flare up on his scalp. Is it the xtra strgth tgel he started, stress of losing our bags& passports while away, a mostly pizza diet for 10 days while on said vacay or is P progressively getting worse?

I seem to remember from past posts that ‘Susan’ has a pso diet plan that has worked. Can anyone tell me which Susan? I would like to try either a candida diet or no nightshades for a few months if possible. May be to big a battle but I want to try

I am having a lot of problems posting or commenting on the site. Almost always get an error message. Is this happening to anyone else? I am not including links, photos or brand names.

Question for the T gel users, how long did it take for you to see a difference on your scalp?
10 Aug 20:20
Some spots showing up on my sons face. Panic attack for me! Im acting all cool of course. He has been in the sun tons so can I assume phototherapy will not work?
31 Jul 05:53
Anyone heard of soreon cream or tried it?

5 days of putting Apple cider vinegar on the head and the boy’s scalp has almost cleared up. Fingers crossed if we do this a couple times a week it will stay clear. It’s a battle though.

Arg my son had an ATV accident tonight. Broken hand which is very unfortunate as he is an athlete but worse is he has cuts all over his back. Besides keeping calm does anyone have advice to stop the areas from flaring up with P?
25 Jul 22:54
Any advise on using both prescription medications PLUS oil treatments and TGEL shampoo on the scalp? I dont want to over do it...

I am looking for help managing my 13 yr old son's pso. He's sensitive, anxious, stubborn & a super picky eater. I am looking for solutions that are relatively stress free & easy (haha) so that we dont fight about treatment. Help would be appreciated
