Coping, treatment, healthcare system
Flaym has been quiet. I guess most of my Flaymers has got their Psoriasis under control? What medication has worked best for you?

A corticosteroid clears within 4 days.

I'm using a mixture of 50% coconut oil & 50% shea butter on my ears at the moment.
Scalp is finally clear, leg clear.
Sun is coming out, all is well with the world :)

madmum what did you use to clear your scalp????????????
25 Mar 20:42
I used black jamaican castor oil every night (scalp only) for 5 nights (don't wash it out & expect bad hair days!! ) oh, & comb out the bits with a nit combing the morning.
day 6 just shampoo hair give your scalp a day off.
the next 5 nights put on mg**7 tar cream (pot)
repeat as oil weeks & tar weeks as needed

I just finished UV today so I’m pretty good right now but I don’t kid myself it’s a done deal
25 Mar 21:45
did the UV light work do you own one. What I find is my scalp clears with steroid but cannot stay on forever then it comes back within a month most irritating.

my scalp & nails under control ...but got some bum cheek itchy flares....I am currently on chemo meds ...more like a maintenance dose that just keeps my P a little under control ....and I also still do my weekly oil soaks for my scalp ....

Yes. I noticed that too Michelle. Probably some here in Canada are appreciating the beautiful Spring weather vs sitting a computer. I haven't been on alot either. Back writing my book, possibly going back to work although being a stay at home wife is rather lovely. I also grab my tunes daily and head out for a walk. Plus I love to cook and prepare for my wonderful husband. He loves my creations... Looking forward to Summer which in the Okanagan (Kelowna) is freaking hot! We can ride our bikes just a few blocks to the beach! We are truly blessed!

All positive results and I am very happy for all of you. It feels good to see results, it makes one more confident and want to live life to the fullest. I love being happy because everything you touch turns out for the better, maybe not immediately but it does :)
