I'm most happy when I'm plucking weeds in my gardens. I'm a sun worshiper. I've had psoriasis since I was born and usually it's mild unless stressed.
Over the years I have tried many dietary changes to see what affects my skin and health. I have come to the conclusion recently that my skin needs the sun. It doesn’t matter what I eat (although I do tend to eat very natural foods which I prepare myself). It’s also important to keep stress levels down. So maybe the solution is to drink more often, in the sun!
I’ve had the exact experience as you John. Eat extremely well but still have some stubborn patches exacerbated by winter. My Chinese cream was also advertised on FB as being all natural but there’s no way that it can be so effective so quickly. Nevertheless I’m continuing to use it albeit it sparingly. I too buy it on eBay for way less. Considering it is winter, my skin is much happier than usual. 😃
I stopped all steroid creams 13 years ago and usually use an aloe Vera based cream. However, I have recently started using a Chinese cream which I purchased from Amazon as a “natural cream for psoriasis “ which more than likely has steroids in it. I use it very sparingly and it has actually really helped.
I know you do so many things for your skin John. I hope you can get rid of this patch too. I’ve been adding a lot of liquid vitamin D3 to my cream. I take 6,000 IU internally but like you the sun really helps my skin and I know that some psoriasis medications contain a lot of vitamin D so I thought why not put some in the cream?! Considering it’s winter for me too (-20 Celsius at the moment!), my skin is doing quite well. Good luck John
I unfortunately have to agree with Susan. Having had scalp psoriasis for about 15 years and scratched like a maniac, I’ve started using very sparingly a steroid cream too. I’ve tried so many shampoos and creams on my scalp with no success. The steroid cream seems to be working. I’m hoping that if I can calm the scalp enough so that I don’t scratch it’ll heal finally.
