Doc used to give me a coconut oil based cream. It acted as a skin peeler and softened the plaques till they came off easily in the shower with no bleeding. Within just a couple of days of not using it however, the plaques came rushing back.

Welcome to Flaym, Cathrin! Yes me! I've tried it neat on my head whilst pregnant for bringing some relief to severe scalp psoriasis. I also now use coconut shampoo and conditioner, just with coconut extract though not full on oil. Now I eat coconut oil all the time as I'm following the autoimmune protocol and us AIP people cook with coconut oil all the time. I make date and coconut bites with it and eat them all day!

I'm also considering going on the diet. But tbh I cannot STAND the coconut smell therefore I use odorless coconut products. 💞💞😘😘😘

Hi Cathrin, I Love coconut oil for my skin. I started using it on it's own, then I started mixing it with tea tree oil, which is quite soothing for me as well. Now I do that, but also make my own healing salves with herbs that are known for being great for skin and psoriasis. Its fun, easy, cheap and soothing! I should mention when I first tried coconut oil I just grabbed what was in the grocery store and it didn't provide lasting relief, made my skin burn and was really greasy. I got the tip to try organic and it has been so much better. I make sure to use Organic Cold Pressed Unrefined Raw Coconut oil. Welcome to Flaym!! :)
