Coping, treatment, diet

Hi guys, I was recently diagnosed of Scalp and Guttate Psoriasis. Everything is new and overwhelming. I feel very conscious and very frustrated on what is happening. Any tips for newly diagnosed people? Im currently using steroids for management.

Hi Jasmine I’m the mom of a young and newly diagnosed boy with P. What has helped us most with both treatment and keeping in an emotionally positive place is forums like this and others. Best thing you can do is talk to people!

I went on YouTube and “how to cure scalp psoriasis naturally” found a good video by Lamblike. We used her method with Apple cider vinegar and used coconut oil (she uses hemp). It worked incredibly well. But was stinky and messy so my son wanted to stop. Can’t say if I works for everyone.

oh, i forgot to mention that I was diagnosed of Scalp prior to my Guttate. I've been living with Scalp P since April and apple cider and coconut oil unfortunately do not work for me. But Im really happy its working well for your son!

coconut oil didn't work for me either, nor did ACV but, black castor oil did. aveeno cream is also good, got rid of my scalp p with these :)
