I have had Psoriasis and PSA for over 30 years. Have you tried any homeopathic remedies or a change in diet? I recently found that eliminating Night Shade vegetables helps in controlling my sysptoms and works for RMA suffers as well. The spice turmeric helps control the itching and releaves systoms. I make my own capsules to cut down on the cost.

what r night shade veg and what does tumeric taste like?

Potatoes, tomatoes, sweet and hot peppers, eggplant, tomatillos, tamarios, pepinos, pimentos, paprika, cayenne, and Tabasco sauce are classified as nightshade foods. You can Google to get more information. It all refers to RMA but it worked for me to eliminate these items.
turmeric not a pleasant tasting spice taken alone. If you add salt it helps to make it more palatable. 1/4 teaspoon twice a day helps. you will have to judge on your own how well it works. I buy Turmeric powder at the local natural food store and make my own capsules.
I have also switched to neem soap and pure lye soap – no additives or fragrances – helps too. Neem soap – brand Margo – can be found at Indian stores.
I had a seizure while taking Enbrel so I’m constantly looking for more natural altrenatives to controling my Psoriasis.
Hope this helps!

I recently tried Emu oil (from the health food store). It’s not vegetarian, as it’s from an Australian bird. But it’s anti-inflammatory and soothing. It definitely seemed to help reduce the sore, red patches on my elbows. I don’t know if this is/was psoriasis, but it might be, because my mother has the condition.

The brand, “Kalaya” says on the label that it’s for dry skin, eczema and inflamed skin.
Perhaps it would help. Not expensive, as you only use a very small amount at a time.
