Itch, treatment, healthcare system

I posted once but in the wrong place. I can only shower and I wonder if most people with our condition shower everyday.

I certainly shower everyday but I know my skin doesn't like it. I try to use different products to help but it is more flaky after a shower. It's bittersweet unfortunately 😣

I tend to bath more at night that way I can put loads of steroid cream on n thick lotions on n loose pjs I like to bath every other night too

I shower every second day as I have hard water and with psoriasis, dry skin is twice is bad especially through winter. Doesn’t matter what product I use in winter I fight it the whole time.

I used to shower daily and my psoriasis was bad and also found it didn't was the oily creams off that well. Now I have a bath and my skin is so much better but not sure whether being less stressed is something to do with it although my scalp psoriasis is really bad xx

Hi Joy, my skin does better when I shower everyday. If I skip a day, it does not like it, gets tight and dry. Welcome to Flaym!

Every other works for me, going to try the vinegar on my head, the areas on my head are fairly new to me and driving me crazy!

I shower every 2 or 3 days. I use Aveeno bath and shower cream, it is lovely and very soothing. Sometimes I don't shower and just wash hair. But I do moisturise 2/3 times a day on my oldest plaques and ears! I am not a smelly person in general so I don't feel a need to shower more often. But I do always shower whenever I go to my exercise classes so I basically fit my showers around those times! I have a bath about once a month, sometimes far less. I know apple cider vinegar is good for itching and flaking, but not heard of white vinegar in the same way. Let me know how you get on with it!
