Anyone Have Scalp Psoriasis And Also In Ears?

Anyone Have Scalp Psoriasis And Also In Ears?

I do not have anywhere else on my body. I cover my ears with my hair but when I have a bad flare up, it looks like I have dandruff. I use medicated shampoo for my hair and Mometasone Furoate Cream for my ears. The cream works pretty well but have to use it once a week or so. The bad part is if I get water in my ears, I get a really bad ear infection. Just wondering if there is anyone out there that has the scalp psoriasis and how they deal.

Have You Guys Tried Aloe Vera?

Have You Guys Tried Aloe Vera?

Hi guys!

I have had psoriasis on my scalp for many years now. I have tried everything. I recently started juicing and have been adding Aloe Vera (4 teaspoons) to my juice in the morning. My inflamed scalp started clearing up immediately!
I thought at first it was the new shampoo I was using, but then just yesterday I read that Aloe Vera is excellent for psoriasis.
I buy it in liquid form from my health shop.

Cheers
Charlene

I'm newly diagnosed but my arthritic pain is primarily in my lower back and hips. I have severe morning stiffness and sometime can hardly walk after sitting for a while.

10 Year Severe Plaque Psoriasis

10 Year Severe Plaque Psoriasis

For the past 10 yrs, I've been suffering with Severe Plaque Psoriasis where it has taken over 80% of my body. I've been on Triamcinolone; Humira; & Otezla just to name a few treatments. They've only been able to maintain it so it doesn't flare up that bad, so my doctor started Stelara. He also said the more sun, the better!

I read on the internet that turmeric & avocado helps. Also, no tomato, liquor & soy intake.

I've been liquor free for the past 3 weeks. Lessened soy & tomatoes. I love… read more

Voltaren

Voltaren

After taking off products from the market because of heart failure, diclofenac (voltaren) was identified as a drug that could cause heart failure. so avoid this if you can.

Does Any One Else Here Suffer From Koebner Phenomenon?

Does Any One Else Here Suffer From Koebner Phenomenon?

Koebner phenomenon, a reaction that causes new psoriasis plaques to form wherever you experience a skin infection or injury.
Whenever I cut myself, get an ingrown hair, fall down an get a scrape, get a pimple, etc, it will sometimes turn into a new plaque psoriasis spot.

Yes, specially when you have to do blood tests. Every pinch is a new lesion.
