Natural things can't hurt but don't use too many things. Use one treatment for a couple of weeks as least to see what actually works for you.

I think you should be okay & agree with Jen, maybe one thing at a time. How is the combo working for you so far? I use a medication and a variety of natural approaches. I find I need to use multiple things to keep my skin calm. Oils, Lemon,
sun, supplements &
foods I eat.

This is all brand new. 3 nights ago we tried a caster oil/coconut oil treatment with lavender essential oil, then washed out with Dr Bronners shampoo. My son said his head was itchy the next day (he hasn’t had an itch issue before). We are trying again tonight but I will drop the lavender, use a shampoo he is used to (will change soon but want to be able to judge the treatment first) then rinse with apple cider vinegar.

Thats a good idea 😊 You are a great mom ❤ Not everyone is lucky enough to have such a strong support.
I use tgel extra strength shampoo when my scalp flares. Had he ever tried it?

Coconut oil on my scalp makes me very itchy. I forgot about that. We are all different. Some things work and some don't.

Interesting Jen....so many factors to consider!

Yes true. That's why I find trying one thing at the time is important so you know what works. Also I find using a conditioner) medicated or not) seems to help if you use a fine comb to loosen and comb out any flakes.

Thanks Michelle 😍 I haven’t tried the tgel yet but love okey st it today in the pharmacy. I saw it had tar in it so was concerned because some one posted about a lockbox no between coal tar and pustular psoriasis so I got nervous and left it.

You can't believe everything you hear or read. Many of us have used coal tar shampoo for many years with good results. But it's always good to do your own research.

I would tend to agree with trying one thing for a while and then seeing what helps. You can find a combo that works for your son that way. But actually experimentation is great in general. Me personally I use oil and a natural moisturiser for my scalp. This is a combo that works for me! But nothing prescribed now for around a year.

I don’t have P but my 13 yr old son does. I’m so grateful to have found this site in my quest to help him!
