Hello, I'm a fellow psoriasis suffer. My first outbreak happened when I was going on 14 years old. I tend to stay away from the treatments you get from a doctor, just because to me it seems the side effects far out weigh the benefits. So I just take a sea salt bath twice daily and drench myself using Vaseline total conditioning lotion. Baby oil was helping to, but got tired of feeling like a greased up monkey..lol! Recently I did change my diet, as to noticing any effects from it, it's too soon to really tell.

I found when I cut out meat and dairy that my psoriasis almost completely cleared. I cannot have citrus fruits either as they aggravate my skin but on the whole it stays under control at the moment. Changes in temperature and stress are the main factors for me now. I agree with what you say abuot the treatments from the doctor - I don't like too many chemicals.
