Hey Ken, I have added vitamine B and Omega 3 to my diet. It took a while, but my scalp is free of P now for over a year...

Hi Ruben I was prescribed capasal shampoo and [...] gel, they have kept my head clear for years until this recent flare up on my lower legs and ankles

Hi Ken,
Try rubbing vaseline or almond oil on your legs at night and elevate them for an hour. It helps me. :o)

For me it started on my back, went to legs then scalp and finally nails. Now my scalp is clear. Legs are loads better and nails are improving... We all have to check what works for us individual, that's wat makes this so difficult. Lucky loads of people share experiences here :)

when I read everyone else's experiences with psoriasis it makes me understand how bloody lucky I am. I would have a major problem with my scalp if I didn't use medication but as I do it doesn't flare up, occasionally I do get a flare up on my lower legs but a bit of cream and it's gone in a day or two.
