Topical Steroids Causing Steroid Induced Acne

Topical Steroids Causing Steroid Induced Acne

Advice urgently needed please. I’ve recently finished a long course of potent steroids for treatment of psoriasis on my scalp and all over my body, along with PUVA this worked amazing and my skin cleared up. However, I am now left with what I think is steroid induced acne over my shoulders, back, chest, arms and some of my lower body. My dermatologist discharged me from her care when my psoriasis cleared so I have been seeing my gp for the acne but nothing is clearing it. The only thing that… read more

I'm Looking For A Shampoo To Use Daily Or Every Other Day That Will Work On My Scalp Psoriasis. Does Anyone Know Of Any That Work?

I have tried several different shampoos from prescription to home remedies and have not found one to work. I did have one that I used several years ago and tried to get it refilled only to find out my insurance company does not cover that shampoo any more. They cover a solution, but not the shampoo. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Does Anyone Have Severe Psoriasis Of The Scalp And Also Losing Hair?

Does Anyone Have Severe Psoriasis Of The Scalp And Also Losing Hair?

A few years back I developed silvery, white bumps on my scalp. Along with that, my hair comes out in clumps. I was hoping to find other people with the same or similiar problem.

I am completely bald on the top. Doctors say my folics are dead, so therefore my hair will never come back.

Sorion Cream

Sorion Cream

I have been reading a lot about Sorion Cream, has anyone tried it and it so did it help?

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

Salicylic Acid shampoo or t-gel shampoo. You have to try to see what works best for you. Putting coconut oil on at night and cover with a shower cap then shampoo in the morning. Take care

Moisturizer

Moisturizer

With winter here, I’d like to hear what people use for moisturizing full-body. I’m currently using an Aveeno lavender lotion but not sure if it’s the best for moisturizing and if I should try to go unscented. I also have the Gold Bond psoriasis relief cream but only use that on certain spots since it has salicylic acid. I see a lot of different things out there but want to hear about what is tried and true! Thanks!

OTC Treatment For Scalp Psoriasis

OTC Treatment For Scalp Psoriasis

My scalp psoriasis has flared up (itchy and flakey). I have dark blonde hair that long and natural Curley. Tar shampoo hasn’t worked in the past. Just using coconut oil doesn’t either any advice?

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

I found a salycylic acid TGel shampoo to help. I largely have scalp pain though and not flakes on my scalp. I tried the Tar shampoo and didn't notice any difference.
