Itch, treatment, diet

Hello, had psoriasis for 30 years but just recently my face has been itching a lot and I'm worried that I'm about to have a breakout there. Has anyone any suggestions as to how I could stave this off as I would hate it to ruin my boyish good looks.

Hello again,
Here's my story.
Suffered from psoriasis for 3 to 4 yrs. Had it on my scalp, elbows, legs & back. Tried ointments, various oils, creams, stopped using shampoos & soap, changed diet but nothing worked.
Then started on Black Seed Oil (100% Pure Virgin Cold-Pressed, by Shifa) capsules internally, Probiotic 150 billion (Ultimate Flora Extra Care Probiotic 150 Billion) for 6 mths and Black Seed Oil (100% Pure Virgin Cold-Pressed, by Shifa) for the skin, externally on affected areas.
I also I did not change my eating or drinking habits. I eat everything I enjoy, in moderation and drink 1 to 2 pints of beer a week and maybe 1 to 2 shots of whisky, only when I'm with friends. I walk twice a day around 1 mile. I did not change my lifestyle in any way.
Today, although my psoriasis is all cleared I only use Capasal Therapeutic shampoo which I wash my body with as well. After shower I dry and rub Black Seed Oil (100% Pure Virgin Cold-Pressed, by Shifa) on the affected areas only, not in hair though. I do this just to ensure psoriasis does not return. GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL.

I believe I was cured by consuming turmeric, ginger, and pineapple juice adding it to the second ferment in kombucha. You may want to do some internet research on turmeric and psoriasis.

Welcome to Flaym, Martin! If it's any reassurance, I get "ghost" itching a lot, in places where I don't have psoriasis and mostly nothing happens as a result longer term! It might just be that something has triggered a reaction in your body and you feel it there. The area that always prickles on my body when I hit a trigger is my lower back ("muffin tops", hehe) but I don't have any p on that area. I have it other places though! Maybe it's your body telling you to reduce inflammation...

Thanks for the advice, I'm going to try turmeric, and I'll report back on how it goes.
