Can't believe it, I think I found the first spot ever of psoriasis behind my knee. I have hardly been getting sun for the past year because I work inside all day. I've been thinking about sunbathing outside when I get home and going for walks during lunch. How much does sunlight help improve the overall quality of your skin? At all?

I have a few friends that have it and what they find most therapeutic is salt water (ocean) (and of course there is sun as well but not sure if that contributes or not)

Sun works for mild cases, add coal tar (like elta tar) to make it more effective. Use sparingly because it is making your skin more sensitive to the sunlight.

Has anyone found a diet change (grain, processed foods, sugar, and nightshade free, with lots of veggies, fruits, fermented foods, and good meats) has cleared their psoriasis?

No, I went gluten free for 2 years and there was no improvement. My diet has always been high in fruits and veggies, and very little processed foods, so that didn't impact it either.

Gosh, no. I'm an avid cook, and I would be miserable, though I rarely eat process foods. Now I just take a shot, no psoriasis.

I started on methotrexate (pills) which got rid of it, but you can only take that for a limited amount of years. I had no side effects from it at all.

Then I started to show signs of psoriatic arthritis so I take a biologic shot called enbrel. I had moderate to severe psoriosis.
