Re: psoriasis

Hi Bud,

Get a book called Healing Psoriasis The Natural Alternative by Dr. John Pagano. I have Eczema and the regimen is helping my eczema.

The book makes a lot of sense any one with psoriasis or eczema should get this book.

If your bookstore doesn't have it they can order it.

i have this terrible rash, and dry scaly patches on my forehead, the patches i know are part of my psoriasis, but the little red pimples i have no idea what they are, then on my cheeks i have red streaky marks but they are not raised or itchy like the psoriases on my face, any ideas. Also for some reason when i wear face makeup my skin seems to be better, i am just using cover girl liquid base and an avon powder on top of it, why do you think it gets better when i wear face make up? Thanks for any help you can give

Re: psoriasis

I have had psoriasis for years and the only thing that has cleared it up is going to a tanning salon. My dermatoligist said that, that shouldn't have helped it because it wasn't the right kind of rays. But I swear by it. The only thing it didn't clear up is the psoriasis on my scalp. (Probably because the rays can't get to it through my hair, I'm guessing). Although it's not as bad on my scalp as it used to be. I kept going (2-3 times a week) until it was gone then I go whenever I see a spot start to show up. I'm not saying this will help you but you could give it a try.

Re: psoriasis

I have found that tanning seems to help. Sometimes the red spots are redder after tanning, but in a day or 2 they fade. My Dr. also gave my Protopic. It is being used for eczema, but he said it shows promise for psoriasis. If I use it regularly, it seems to do a real good job of getting rid of red spots. I can tell if I don't use it for a day or two-the red comes back.

Re: psoriasis

The tanning salon works great, but if you're already dark (like I am), you may want an in-home remedy. My doctor gave me a cream called betamethasone, which cleared it right up within a week. The only set back is that it's prescription, but the trip to the dr. was worth it for me- hope it helps! <IMG SRC="">
