Well psorisis is not something that goes a way. You can treat the symptoms of it but it will always be a problem for you. Alpha-hydroxy and antioxident lotions can help, so can scrubs like Apricot Scrubs or Body scrubs (Rasberry is usually what is used for body) can help in making it look less ugly. You should check with your doctor to see if there is anything he can perscribe for it. Overall though it will be something you'll have to learn to deal with. Keeping the area moiusturized does help though. It won't remove it but make it less obvious.

Thanks Emeraldisle,I have been to the dr.s and they give creams most of the time.Its been a hard thing to deal with but at times its not.Thanks so much for your input on this and maybe when the warmer weather gets here it will clear up a little.

Hi I have suffered from psorisis for a long time and have used many prescriptions from the doctor which haven't really helped...I read this article recently on nettles and bought some of the items on here and they helped and now my plaques are less www.squidoo.com/nettles-much-more-than-a-sting-in-the-tail I also have read up about the uses of omega3 of which I take a supplement and eat avocadoes and leafy greens - I have found this has all helped! beware not to take omega6 tho as it can exasperate the psorisis....I hope this helps!
