Psoriasis

Hello everyone,

I have psoriasis. My question is if anyone knows of the best way to get rid of them other than tanning. I have tried creams and they just don't seem to work for me. I tried udo oil and I couldn't take it more than once. lol...it was way to gross!! Does anyone know of any sort of pill form to get rid of them or at least make them fade ALOT? I have them on my knees and elbows, nothing too bad, just unattractive and I don't like them being there...lol


Thank you in advance

Re: Psoriasis

Have you been to a dermatologist? My very wonderful PCP tried to treat my psoriasis with no success. My derm prescribed Ultravate and Dovonex (this was 1998-so there may be new stuff) for my body, and Cormax for my scalp. My scalp is a continual, itchy problem. The Cormax worked wonderfully for a few years, I didn't even need it for a year or so, but my body patches rarely come back. If they do, I still have ointment left and treat them and they go away. If you've tried these and had no success, I don't know what to tell you, except that Emu oil is touted as a alternative treatment for many skin disorders. I don't know if it does any good or not.

Good Luck.
