Definitely large doses of Omega 3 around 5000 to 6000 mg a day - specifically DHA 600 mg per day and Epa 900mg per day. Am looking for best vegan options - have heard krill oil or spirulina - anyone tried either those?

Hi Mj I signed up a while ago when I was looking for an answer when I thought my husband had Psoriasis. I noticed there was a lot of people that was of the opinion that they got good results from following a alkalising diet. The problem is that it is hard to stick to the diet so I continued my search and found a website that is selling alkalising and mineralising water. I know we are not to mention any commercial stuff here so if you are interested you can send me a Personal message.

I found a Chinese cream that has been fairly effective in conjunction with a weekly PUVA session. I stopped steroid creams as they weren't effective and also use a body lotion that has 5% urea in it which also helps a bit. And a lot less stress!

Leila @leila

What a wonderful positive attitude Mj! You're stronger for the experience!
I tried a thick blob of toothpaste and once it dried and hardened, it gave me temporary relief. It doesn't last too long though. A topical cream is currently working for me. Good luck!

Mine clears up with Dioprabase ointment

fiona @scabbygirl

Sunshine, 2 weeks in the sun relaxing clears it completely. Then I come home

Hey mj,
To lessen the symptoms/inflammation, I stopped drinking alcohol and I'm on a low sugar diet. To clear up my p light therapy has been a miracle worker! Either take a much deserved holiday or invest in a light therapy machine - I swear by mine!
Stay Awesome,

I switch out my shampoos and body soap.
shampoo-Tgel with Shea Moisture Deep Cleansing Shampoo for dry , itchy scalp.
body soap- Olay with black soap.
It has made a big difference for me. When I run out of 1 product I switch to the other.

Clawbare @clawbare

My legs were covered until i had a series of ultra violet sessions. all i've left is two dry knees and a patch on the back of my calf which every time i get almost clear i scratch it and have to start again with the creams.

Lynne @lynnenettelton

Colodial silver cream or gel. Avoid MSG at all costs. Do not use washing powder, try Earth Sap clothes wash.

Mj @mj

Thank you so much guys for sharing your routines/medications that helped you clear up or lessen your pso. I'll surely try those that doesn't cost much and are available here in the Philippines. I appreciate the love and support that you've shown me. I made the right choice in joining Flaym. Keep spreading the love! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

Nora @noraanderson

I recently switched to a natural soap brand that uses soap nuts. It's really helped in clearing my skin! :)

GITTL @gittl

at this point i'm doing uv treatments 3x a week, it's working but unbelievably slowly...just when i thought between the pain (other issue) and itching i'd lose my mind. i have it over 75% of my body. one of worst cases they've seen they say. to make it through the night(impossible to sleep for tearing my skin off) i smoke grass, cream body and take two homeopathic remedies..arnica 1000 and opium 1000. and that's to get through half the night. around 3 am repeat. so sleep deprived. itching i've discovered through SCIENTIFIC AMERICA is a pain response so i'm treating it as such AND knowing it's incurable...so it's up to me and my belief system G-d, and never giving up but...it's hell.

Dianne @notforme

The very best and most effective treatment is to treat the symptoms empirically, i.e. as an outbreak occurs treat that outbreak ONLY. Do not think you can second-guess psoriasis and pre-treat areas you think may be vulnerable. And try to forget that you have psoriasis - even if it is difficult at times not to give way to despair - sunshine if possible, laughter lifts the whole spirit and a smile really works as a mood lightener. Anyway, works for me - at the moment........

Jack @psoriasisblob

Have to second the responses about diet. Eliminating the junk/gluten/dairy did wonders for my P!

Susan @godcares

Diet and lifestyle changes. Lots of practice of living in the moment. Music, exercise and I practice my Faith. I now consider myself healed and even if I'm not I still speak that to myself daily. Positive living as well in every way. Drink Moringa too.
