Does anyone else suffer badly from psoriasis? I've got a really bad flare-up on my scalp. its got so bad that its now a load of open wounds. I've tried shampoo's, creams, ointments and nothing is helping to soothe it. Help before I end up shaving my hair off to slap the cream straight on it 😕

I do, have had it for 20 years. Cut out gluten, sugar, alcohol, processed foods and start taking in serious probiotics to increase your gut bacteria. For my scalp I use alphosyl shampoo every day and every few days use betnovate scalp solution and my scalp been under control for a few years now. Not sure if it's just your scalp but a bath with oats is great to soften and soothe skin....I stick some in an old pair of tights in the bath. Hope things improve for you.

Have you tried coconut oil? I've heard good things.

I think this is in the wrong section.
Psoriosis is annoying but it's not exactly newsworthy
