The official medicines for psoriasis are either steroids or immuno-suppressants; both have side-effects that are worse than disease itself. Explore the natural remedies first (omega-3, sunbathing, vitamin D, etc) before subjecting yourself to humira-dovonex-and the like; for myself, the herbal ointment and spray combo from Champori.com works the best. Takes just a week or so to suppress the blotches and the effect lasts for 6-8 months! Try it.

My mom has suffered from fairly severe Psoriasis for years, and tried everything from the usual steroids the dermatlogists prescribe, to diets, even homeopathy. To no avail. Then about 2 years ago we found a product while surfing the net.
It's called Champori, and the website is Champori.com.

It really works wonders, and it is completely natural. Her hands have healed completely, you couldn't even say she suffered for years! Her legs are well on the healing path too. She has not experienced any side effects. And new flare-ups are fewer and fewer. Almost none now. It seems like this company makes just 2 products, one for psoriasis, and the other eczema. I must say, we were quite wary about trying it out, seemed like a small home-business someone started up; but mom was itching all day (literally), and desperate, so we thought what the worst that could happen?

Well, we are soooo glad we tried it out. I hope this encourages other people looking for some releif to try this out, and hope your experience is like my mom's.

Has anyone tried Psorant? (I think that's what it's called--it's new) This is made from coal-tar, but without the odor and staining. My daughter has psoriasis and has tried almost everything. This cream is OTC, but we can't find it anywhere (yet!).
If anyone knows where to get this, and has tried it----let me know!!!!!

My mum has the worst form of psoriasis and she uses a grease called "epaderm" and it really helps =) It stops the itching and heals the skin well. She has tried various different medicines but they have not worked as well. She also has a few sessions of uv light therapy (going on a sun bed) which seem to help too. good luck =)

i have had psoriasis for 20 + years tried many therapies. UV helps-Dead sea ho hum -creams ameliorate but not much success. I realise this is left field but the best i found is ayurvedic Panchakarma treatment in India . A 2 week treatment involving herbal oil applications- herbal treatments and some fasting makes my skin 90-95% better. It tends to come back over time but a trip every 3years or so keeps it in check. I go to Dr Raos at putta parthi (near Sai Babas ashram) north of Bangalore. It is very pleasant (not from March- July -too hot) well catered for and set up reasonably well for Westerners. It only costs about $200 but you can go to more expensive resort style Ayervedic centres in Kerala if thats your thing.
good luck Mike

Soap is a chemical.

This has nothing to do w/fashion/beauty - the whole topic is health related.

I have hand eczema sometimes (from way back as a child - started when I had to wash dishes). Once many years ago, the dermatologist put some yellow paste on my hands and he had some kind of special light on them for a while. It wasn't unpleasant, it was kind of interesting and I think it was slightly warm. I thought lamps were for psoriasis. What is the difference between eczema and psoriasis? I heard lamps and special lights were good for psoriasis.
