How do you get rid of psoriasis?

I've had psoriasis for like 6 years on my knees and elbows. Nothing I've used has worked. Even the steroid creme my doctor suggested. I heard about this book where you change ur diet and it cures it. If you've read it, please give me feedback.

The main cause of psoriasis is overreaction of the immune system. Identifying certain foods, chemicals, etc can be very helpful in battling this disease. I try to avoid soy and sea food which trigger my flare-ups.
After using number of prescription drugs I've turned to the natural treatments.
Now I use herbal remedies from serenaskin.com, which aims at the root of the disease - the immune system. This treatment controls my psoriasis very well.
After about 3 weeks of using ointment and spray my skin has been cleared up and now I just continue with anti-psoriasis extract, which controls the immune system. My skin has been clear for months now.
I'm very pleased with the results  (+ info)

What is the recurrence rate of psoriasis ?

Psoriasis is an allergic reaction triggered by many factors such as unhealthy diet, no exercise, & stress. But if it ihas been treated, then will it recurr? Since it is an allergic reaction it might be re-triggered by the allergant.
Is this true?

Psoriasis is not an allergic reaction. The cause of psoriasis is not known (that's why there is no cure for it yet). I cleared my 4 year old psor. with champori cream (http://www.champori.com ) and it hasn't come back in over 8 months now...  (+ info)

What is the best treatment for psoriasis?

I have it on my fingers and the skin breaks up and bleeds. It has been diagnosed by a consultant as a hybrid type of psoriasis. Need help!

Psoriasis is treatable with topical steriods, but they only suppress the symptoms, they don't treat the cause. Stress is a major cause of psoriasis outbreaks and anything you can do to reduce stress in your life can help reduce the symptoms.

I use an essential oil mix to treat my psoriasis: lavender, bergamot and neroli in jojoba oil. It isn't a cure, but helps keep it under control without using steroids. All three oils are useful in reducing stress and treating skin conditions.

Diet can also affect psoriasis. Alcohol, caffeine, sugar and other stimulants can make it worse. Reducing the use of stimulants, doing a colon detox and eating organic foods can help.  (+ info)

What can i do for my psoriasis and arthritis it caused?

I have psoriasis and been diadnosed with psoriatic arthritis and it really killling my back and neck the doctors here only prescribe drugs which i dont want, is there any other way to get by with no pain?

I have Psoriatic Arthritis. Initially you need to make a health log. A diary and every night before you go to bed, write down what you did, what you ate and on a scale of 1-10, how you feel. Then after six months go back and read what you wrote and see if you can link up any 'foods' to how you felt. I found out that if I have a fresh orange juice every morning for breakfast, the third morning my joints were Hades. I cannot go anywhere near citric fruit, so have to get my vitamin intake elsewhere. Moreover 'refind' foods are not good can stomach them, but pay a price, silly things like white sugar. As citric acid is a preservative and sugar is located in many of our foods that we buy, I have to be careful. Next what to take, especially like you pain killers do wonders for the pain and my brain does not function! I tried a few diferent brands of anti-inflammatory drugs, until I found one that really suits me, been on the same one now for 20 years. I then read about Eskimos never succumbing to Arthritis, because their diet is 'fish' so what they term anti-inflammatory food. However I could not eat fish everyday, so opted for Omega 3 oils. I saw a Rheumatologist, who started me on Evening Primrose Oil and life really improved. Got a dog, went walking three miles three times a week, then joined a Pilates Class, really got my muscle tone up. Exercise produces endorphines, which are natural pain killers and it works. However been warned, exercise can be addictive, especially as you are self medicating, making your own pain killers.
I am still here some 30 years after being diagnosed with Psoriasis and 20 years after the Arthritis, so I guess I must be doing something right! However their is no 'quick fix' and the answer is really in your own hands.  (+ info)

Can I use my medications for psoriasis while pregnancy?Did you have this kind of experience?

I am not pregnant yet, but planning to become this year. I have psoriasis for 16 years, it is an active form, I have to use my medicine every other day. Unless I will get those red spots all over my body and face. I use Clobetasol (liquid), external, applying to every spot.

Will the benefits outweigh the risk to my unborn child? This is a question you should ask yourself and your doctor. There is no way of knowing how much of the corticosteroid is being absorbed into your blood stream. Corticosteroids can cause birth defects.

I would think that having spots for a year would be a small price to pay for a healthy baby.  (+ info)

What is a good shampoo and conditioner for a bad case of psoriasis?

My mom is an elderly lady and has a bad case of psoriasis and its getting worse. I have never seen it this bad.

Denorex knocks the daylights out of psoraisis, but it is a little harsh, and not always a good choice for daily use, but its a good one to use just to get things under control. After an initial blast from Denorex, Selsun Blue with conditioner might be a good choice for daily use.   (+ info)

Is it possible for a person to have Eczema and Psoriasis?

These are separate skin conditions, and while I have been diagnosed with Eczema since infancy, I believe I may have a mild form of Psoriasis.

Both rarely are rarely "active" at the same time, but sometimes they are, there is a noticeable difference between the patches of skin, even though they are usually close to each other, even overlapping at times. Have I just done too much research on skin conditions, or is it possible to have both Eczema and Psoriasis?

Hi, you can try one of the natural treatments available on the Internet (just google "natural treatment of psoriasis") and take your pick. Some of them do actually work. For my psor. I use herbal cream by Champori quite successfully. It takes just a couple of weeks to clear the spots and they then stay clear for months on end.
Try it: Champori is available online without prescription and comes with money back guarantee so if it doesn't work for you - it's free.
