My mom has psoriasis

and I would like to find out if anyone has any "tried and tested" home remedies that they have found that gives them relief from their condition.

My mom is seeing doctors and specialists and is on all sorts of medications so that side is being looked after. I am just wondering if any other sufferers have found a home made remedy that they use in conjuction with their meds. I once heard something about a guy who was rubbing mashed bananas onto his skin and it helped relieve the itch.

My mom has periods where she could rip the skin off her arms because of the itch. I would appreciate any ideas, hints or tips.

Re: My mom has psoriasis

I have just a small amouint of psoriasis, but since it doesn't itch, I don't know what can be used to take that away. I do like how Aquaphor (made by Eucerin) lubricates the scaling, though. Works very well.

Tar lotions worked for me in the past. They're very messy & you have to be consistent.

I also noticed that when I gain weight my psoriasis explodes.
