Welcome and yes depending on how your P reacts to foods usually nightshade vegetables like white potatoes,tomatoes, eggplant, bell peppers, cayenne pepper and paprika.

Exactly what Peter said. Some people try an elimination diet as a way to find foods that cause or exacerbate their P. As Peter said, the nightshade plants can have a big effect, however not in everyone. I eliminated them but found no difference. You may be different, and there are other possible causes. We can’t post links here but just google Psoriasis elimination diet. There’s plenty of detailed info out there.

Hi Sarah and welcome to Flaym. I agree with Peter and James. Since I cut nightshades out of my diet, I itched less. Pasta was the worse for me and flavoured sauces. You need to experiment with your food and keep track of what you eat. I usually started itching half an hour I had something bad but It also depended on what food it was. Like James said, you might have a different reaction to nightshades but it's worth trying. :)

also turmeric with black pepper can help with the inflammation and take a good pre and probiotic to help get the bacteria in your gut right also can help.

Gluten has proved to be the culprit for me. If you haven't had the blood test for celiac disease, do consider it, as damaged intestines can't absorb the vitamins which help prevent psoriasis - especially D, K2, and magnesium. I've been eating 100% gluten free since an endoscopy in March w/ dramatic healing from ALL of my issues! Psoriasis has dropped dramatically, with only one little patch behind my ear that no longer itches. 😊
