I USED THE SHOT ENBREL FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS AND IT CLEARED IT UP, BUT IT WAS SOMETHING I WAS GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. DEPENDS ON YOUR INSURANCE, IT'S VERY EXPENSIVE CO-PAY FROM THE BEGINNING, THEN AS MONTHS GOES BY THE CO-PAY GET LESS, BUT THEN AT THE BEGINNING OF THE NEW YEAR HAD TO START PAYING THE HIGH CO-PAY SO QUIT TAKING IT. I HAVE THE PSORIAS BACK, NOT BAD YET. BUT DOES ANYONE GET THIS ON THEIR PRIVATE AREA? I DIDN'T BEFORE, BUT DO NOW.

I have psoriasis and I tried some steroid creme and it worked for a time.....unfortunately you build and immunity to it. The best I have found is sunlight. Sunlight cures it or makes the symptoms better. Unfortunately it is genetic and they do not have an actual cure. All they have are TREATMENTS. For Jeffrey: Are you sure it's not fungus on your nails (that also makes your nails flake)??? I would not recommend bag balm all it did for me was make my skin feel greasy it do not stop my skin from mulitplying (which is what psoriasis is excessive multiplying of your skin cells). I tried tar shampoo and that worked until I developed a tolerance to it. I now go tanning in the winter because it gets worse then (less sunlight). Stress also makes it worse. Good luck.

Try soaking in Dead Sea Salt, then mixing Dead Sea Salt with Sesame Oil and rubbing it on the affected area 1 to 2 times a week. Rub the
sesame oil on every day.

Hope your all satisfied. =)

Surprisingly, what can help psoriasis the most is exposing the skin to sunlight. When we lived in Montana, my fairskinned daughter had psoriasis that got far worse in the wintertime with the short days. She eventually moved to sunny So. California and her psoriasis cleared up. When I researched the problem on the net, sunlight was one of the things mentioned that might help relieve the problem. There are medications specifically used for psoriasis, but I believe a doctor's prescription is needed. Please be very careful with the cortisone meds. One of the side effects of cortisone creams can be increased scar tissue at the site where the cream is used.

One of my kids had psoriasis as a baby. The
nurse gave me a Cordran creme--something like
that, cleared it right up.

see a doctor they will help.,. Cortisone creams can sometimes "feed" it making it worse,,, Jim

try taking zinc supplement

Some 7 years ago a Skin Specialist put a solution onto my hands and feet,put both under U.V light for a period over a 2 week span.This treatment burnt my skin severely and he then told me I had Lupus and that a blood test should have been performed before this treatment. I had no helpful treatment and he placed me on many medications, creams etc over a couple of months, but he was kurt and not willing to be questioned over his damaging treatments to my feet and hands. Since 1996 I have had many infections and the burning / scaling areas have progressed up my both legs making it necessary to take antibiotics to help with the infections.
Is there any new natural products that may help with my skin condition..I have no Lupus systemic or otherwise.

Don't exceed recommended dosages of a zinc supplement and be danged careful if you're taking a multi-vitimin and a zinc supplement. Its very easy to over dose on zinc and you'll be miserable.

Ask me how I know....

Did you mean psoriasis?

I've got no practical knowledge to back this up but...
Melaleuca makes a product called "Renew" that is reported to be good for psoriasis. My brother-in-law and father-in-law report that its good for persistant dry skin.
The company doesn't make any specific claims about the stuff being good, but I've talked to some people with psoriasis that have had good results.

OOOOhhhh, psorias can be nasty....mother had it. Bag balm works well. Also try a good Cortizone cream. Don't know if there is a real cure, but both will help keep it soft so it's not so bad.

I am 42 and have had psorias all my life,just a little bit on my elbows and knees, then 4 months ago i was covered from head to foot and ended up in hospital for 2 weeks,after all the baths and coatings in "gunge" I came home and have been doing the same thing at home trying to get rid of this awful curse,at the moment i am feeling ok in myself mainly due to the fantastic support from my loving and caring wife,but still feel so bad some days and in much pain,any new ideas would be very welcome

Think 'Bag Balm'...


Les...fortunate    Posted 02-22-2003 at 13:02:34       [Reply]  [No Email]
When I was a kid, at my cousins' place down the road they always had Bag Balm in the medicine cabinet. And at our place, dad always had Vaseline out in the barn for use on the cows' bags. Seems as though we otter have switched.


Jim(MO)    Posted 02-22-2003 at 10:58:11       [Reply]  [No Email]
What's "bag balm'. I occasionally use brown bag pain killer. Doubt if its the same ;>)

Take a look at the link...

My husband has sworn by that stuff for years, now. We've got a couple of cans of it now, one in each bathroom. It is also good for heat rash/jock rash, etc. It not only heals, but waterproofs the skin. Used to know a rather heavy woman who would mow yards for a living who would use this stuff under her breasts to keep from heat chaffing. Works good!

More than I care to know! BTW, doe's anyone know anything of a skin condition(itch mostly) around the ankles? I've got a bit(oh, the itch!), my brothernlaw has it worse, and the preachers wife has it too. I've used anti-itch cream and it helps for a short while. I doubt if it can be cured but does anyone know of some kind of treatment or balm? Enjoy the day! Wet earlier, sunny now, about 70 deg.


Dr. Tom Boyd-Smith    Posted 11-06-2003 at 08:42:48       [Reply]  [Send Email]
There is an excellent ointment called Dovobet (available only on prescription here in the UK). It's a combination of Dovonex and Betnovate. You apply it twice a day for a month, and should then be completely clear of psoriasis for about 2 to 3 months. The other very successfull treatment is PUVA, 'artificial sunshine', combined with a medication to make the skin more sensitive to UV light, taken either as tablets or by immersing in a treated bath immediately before treatment. Done only in hospital.

Best wishes,

Doc Tom

It's a generic name for a heavy slightly greasy product used on a cows udders for moisturizing and protection. People use it for all kinds of stuff.


Ludwig    Posted 02-22-2003 at 11:51:11       [Reply]  [No Email]
Actually its a specific product originally developed for farm use on cows.
See the link that Salmoneye posted.

I've been using it for years, cures what ails you. My wife hates the stuff but begrudgingly admits that it works.


Cindi    Posted 02-22-2003 at 12:03:52       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yes, you're right. True name of the product 'bag balm'. There are some copies out there but I stick with the original.


Cindi    Posted 02-22-2003 at 09:56:30       [Reply]  [No Email]
psoriasis.....yes, very good advice salmon...bag balm......cures most of what ails ya.....short of going to the doctor anyway.
