A great site for info

The National Psoriasis Foundation site is an excellent site for information on psoriasis. There are several types of psoriasis, and one person can have more than one type going on at one time. Each type may require different treatment. I agree, this problem requires a dr's advice, as some things may look like psoriasis and be something else, or it may be something else and be psoriasis. I was treated for years for a yeast infection under my breasts that would not clear. I even questioned the several dermatologists I saw. After viewing pictures online of different forms of psoriasis, I knew I had a combination of inverse psoriasisn and yeast infection that had gone into a secondary infection. After proper treatment, it cleared in 4 weeks after 8 years of treatmenet. I onlyhave to use meds once a week now, after switching to a nonsoap product, and wearing bras with wicking that absorb moisture. Keeping your body moisturized is very important. Products with shea butter work well. Stay away from mineral oil, fragrances, botanicals, and wearing cotton and not wools or heavy synthetics can help. If you can get it somewhat under control, prevention is your best approach. Don't wash with hot water, used warm. Certain mineral make ups can work well if you are having problems on your face. But I didn't wear make up for some time, just moistured, in order to give my face time to clear. I am able to use makeup now with no problem, but I really work to nip things in the bud if I start to see any evidence of a flare up. Scalp psoriasis has been the hardest part to treat, and I have lost a great deal of my hair. I use hyperallergenic shampoos and conditioners. I have used Emu oil on my scalp, and also a body butter made with shea butter, coconut oil, avacodo oil and vegetable glycerin. I try to keep conditioner away from my scalp, and just on my hair. Rinse your hair really well. It is an autoimmune disorder, so it is managed, not cured. Stress can cause it to flare,and an upcoming wedding can definately be stressful. Good luck, and try different approaches. What works for one person, might not work for others.
