Do you have an everyday routine for your psoriasis? If so, what?

Checking the scalyness, making a tumeric infusion, taking my supplements... The usual :D
10 Apr 11:33
Oil my scalp everyday & apply cream after my bath under my foot. I have developed a bad case of P under my foot as well....
10 Apr 12:34
Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise
10 Apr 13:59
Mindful living in the moment and gratitude always.
10 Apr 14:44
I shower every morning and then apply my cortisone ointments and then I moisturize with a natural oil. In the afternoon I then moisturize over my psoriasis again usually with a coconut/Shea butter balm that I have.
10 Apr 15:35
Moisturizer is a must plus ,daily supplements is very important
10 Apr 15:36
Rubbing my body with aqueous cream
10 Apr 16:16
Check for face flakes in the morning, de flake if need be,chuck a bit of coconut oil on it or moisturiser job done, look in the mirror now and again to check for flakes throughout the day, seems vain i know but i am far from that, the joys of the flakeyness :)
10 Apr 16:42
I use a medicated soap when I take a shower and after that applied an oil. Still, no visible changes.
10 Apr 16:52
No, none at all, just hope it won'e be a bad itching day every morning, and it tends not to be if I go out with friends.
10 Apr 17:31
Never used to but now yes mega psoriasis routine! Moisturise up to 5 times a day. Anti-inflammatory breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks compliant with autoimmune protocol eating plan. Oil on scalp a couple of hours before washing hair / showering (every other day). Showers are cool using colloidal oatmeal products (Aveeno). Intensive exercise 2-3 evenings a week. Recently, also yoga once a week. All attempts at reducing inflammation!

Bev, I was just going to say "moisturise, moisturise, moisturise"!
10 Apr 19:00
I agree with Bev, when I shower I have exfoliating gloves, I don’t use them every time, twice a week. Dry off apply moisturiser, let that soak in the apply steroid ointment if I think it’s needs it. I don’t like using steroids. I also find it difficult sticking to a routine 😊
10 Apr 19:33
No, absolutely no routine whatsoever.

Yes. My first long term derm told me that having P is like having a part time job. Got to keep after it or it could take over. Medicated oil on my scalp every night and sleep with a cap on. Wash hair in the morning with unmed shampoo if I have to go out. Shower every 3rd day cause showers really dry you out. Moisturize every morn. Then steroid ointment in the evening. Also do some anti inflam supplements. Always lube my feet and wear socks. Isn't P fun?
11 Apr 16:29
Well, sounds like you are busy Carol,seems a lot to do every day to keep skin moisturised etc

I have had this horrendous condition for 9 years. I have tried ointments, biologics & steroids. Nothing worked 😢 5 weeks ago, I eliminated dairy, red meat, nightshade veggies & caffeine. I am fortunate to have a home uvb device. The changed diet along with phototherapy every few days, has changed my skin dramatically 😃 yes, it's difficult to eliminate foods that are so delicious, but honestly, my skin is no longer inflamed and is actually healing 👏 since my skin no longer hurts & I can see such good results, I'm encouraged to continue with this plan! Wishing everyone who suffers this condition positive thoughts - enjoy life, don't let this define you, we are so much more than our condition!!
11 Apr 18:24
That's such good news Angela. It's amazing how changing what you eat can heal your P. But once you have tried it, you don't want to go back to how you used eat
11 Apr 18:37
Yes, I'm encouraged to continue on this way of eating 😎 I feel fantastic - P will not define me!!
11 Apr 19:07
That's so amazing Angela, what a story!

Aloe vera gel helps. Also a bath w/epsom salt seems to stop itch. I use vaseline & I find it sooths also.
13 Apr 13:48
Good for you Angela. I'm happy that things are getting better for you by working from the inside. That's how I got healing too. My favorite is aloe vera gel too. I use it on my face every morning and you know, I think it might slow down the aging process. I get told all the time that I can't possibly look 56 (almost 57) because my face looks young. Hmmm. Maybe something to this natural plant. Really not costly either to get from the health food store as a pure gel. Saves me money for my bucket list. LOL.
13 Apr 14:16
😃 Yay! I agree its natural, soothing & cheap also. I hear the same things & I think it's genetics and lots of moisturizers!
14 Apr 01:13
taking my turmeric and cinnamon - applying cream and/or ointments to my affected areas
14 Apr 17:59
Shower daily with prescription shampoo, apply ALL OVER MY BODY coconut oil and lotions and see the sun - wear clothes but not too revealing!
14 Apr 20:12
Hi Justin, I use to get as much sun as possible but after a while it didn’t have the same benefits. I did have UBV treatment but was diagnosed with skin cancer, which was successfully removed, so can’t have that anymore. There goes my free suntan 😊😊

Have you tried the coconut oil?
It has been around since time began, but people are re-learning its qualities.
Give it a go. I purchase mine very inexpensively from the local Chinese supermarket. A 500ml bottle costs just £2.80!
15 Apr 08:21
I will give it a try, I am doing quite well with what I am using at the moment but it’s good to know there is something to fall back on.
15 Apr 09:05
Psoriasis will never go away, it just gets better when there is vitamin d from the sun.
I suggest, as a back up, keep coconut oil and lotion for use when other creams fail!
15 Apr 09:09
It wont go away you are right Justin but, one can make improvements even small ones over time , psoriasis is from within and not from the skin, its what we psoriatics do that make psoriasis worse,some changes in diet/lifestyle is better than none but, it is a choice a choice for everyone :)

I use the cream my doctor gave every second day and it works pretty good

I have Psoriasis and an addiction to all seafood. So after showering with Sanex and Alphosyl shampoo, I smother my body with coconut oil, then with breakfast, take Cod Liver Oil and Omega 3 capsules.
01 Jul 17:47
What seafood do you eat Justin? glad you are taking great steps to improving your situation :)
02 Jul 05:58
I am intollerant to ALL seafood but I have been taking cod Liver Oil capsules and Omega 3 capsules - they do me no harm!
