My mum used to have psoriasis all over the soles of her feet...mine is on my scalp.
Sometimes I can hide it..but does anyone get a redness around the hairline & i get one spot of it on one eye lid.
With the stress of this..I also get shingles .

Yes patches on eye lids and red patches on hairline. I was told by dermatologist not to use [....] based one on the hairline as takes weeks to get out of hair folicles.. but this calmed the redness down. Also virgin coconut oil ( comes in jar is white and hard) smells lush you can get in supermarket or holland and barrett and added bonus can cook with it. I put this on at night. On scalp and works a dream to soothe and take redness out and can be used on feet too.

And a bit of vasaline for eyelids. Even if u do apply eye makeup put this on first. You will find intensifies the eyeshadow colour and stays on longer.
