I had psoriasis for two years and negligently did not care. It affected my scalp and both elbows. Whenever I went I left dandruff spills and that started to be a problem and people started to notice and comment on my elbows' white patches. I went to see doctors and their prescriptions were expensive and did not work. Until I talked to the owner of a pharmacy. He told me to use Polytar liquid shampoo for scalp. I used it everyday and washed my hair and scalp with. I did not use any other shampoo. I also used it on both my elbows at the same time. I took some precautions not to use other bath soap on the affected area. That was a miracle the patches completely dissapeared on my elbows, but some tiny points remained on my scalp. 6 months later, it reappeared on my scalp (seems the residual points developped) and appeared on one elbow. Just now I am using polytar again and it is working again on my scalp and also on my elbow. I keep thinking that if somebody use liquid shampoo (e.g polytar) on the affected areas, and a tar soap instead of ordinary bath soap, psoriasis CAN be cured. The affected parts must be rubbed with the shampoo until the rashes dissapear, and the shin become clear reddish. Furthermore I personally think (although I did not use it) that just after the shampoo and until the next one, a parrafin application will soften and repair the skin until the next shampoo application. In fact, I also noticed that the psoriasis patches start to cure from the centre first and then towards the edges. The skin became clear and back to real NORMAL. I have just started treating the resurge (mid february 2009) and will be able to tell soon whether the shampoo worked this time also. If somebody can start a daily usage (with deeply working the lesions, then applying parrafin), he may also be able to tell whether it worked or no in his case.

We deal with psoriasis.We employ fumigation-washing therapy, in which secret prescriptions are used to nourish the blood so that the skin flourishes. The prescription is individualized to treat both symptoms and root causes of the disease. The achievements are remarkable. see more information on the website of vitiligotcm.

Are you suffering from Psoriasis?

More than 4.5 million adults in the United States have been diagnosed with psoriasis, and approximately 150,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. An estimated 20% have moderate to severe psoriasis. Psoriasis occurs about equally in males and females. Recent studies show that there may be an ethnic link. It seems that psoriasis is most common in Caucasians and slightly less common in African Americans. Worldwide, psoriasis is most common in Scandinavia and other parts of northern Europe. It appears to be far less common among Asians and is rare in Native Americans

What is psoriasis? What causes psoriasis? Is there a cure or treatment for psoriasis? Psoriasis is a skin condition, it is a disease, but it is not contagious. The name comes from the Greek word for "itch." It can be hereditary, caused by external influences (allergic reaction to foods or the environment) and sometimes stress. 4-5% of the population is known to be affected, and this number is growing. However, it is suspected that 1 in 5 people have some form of psoriasis either descripts or none descript. Once you have psoriasis, it is very likely you will have it for ever. It may go away, and come back. It might respond to various treatments, and it may not. Basically psoriasis is your body over producing skin cells. You have too many skin cells in one location which is why it often swells up, becomes dry and even flaky. It can often be very itchy, red, sore, cracked and very tender. Psoriasis usually affect the scalp, hands, stomach, knees, feet and elbows. It is linked to dandruff and unfortunately to some forms of arthritis.

Hello Everybody!!!

I am a 4th year medical student conducting a survey to study co-morbid psychiatric dysfunction in individuals with psoriasis and other skin conditions such as keloids. At this point, there are very few studies that have explored the psychiatric effects of keloids in affected individuals, while some studies have elucidated increased psychiatric dysfunction in individuals with other chronic dermatological
conditions such as psoriasis.

The purpose of this survey is to explore the psychiatric effects of keloids and compare it to that of psoriasis, and elucidate to the medical community that psoriasis and keloids can have more than cosmetic effects.

In order to conduct this study I am looking for individuals with OR without psoriasis who are willing to complete a 5 minute ANONYMOUS survey by visiting the link:


Once the link has been visited it will not allow you to re-vist the survey in order to ensure that each individual takes the survey only one time. So please only click the link if you are prepared to take the quiz, as it will not allow you to take it again.

Thank you all for your help.
