Hi Eilo, sounds like your having it really tough. The MooGoo really what has helped my scalp, no longer have to go loo regularly to check status of my shoulder flakes and brush down! Which I think is something all suffers would be familiar with. Had been getting the salt therapy before started using MooGoo so it may have boosted it's success rates. Hopefully it works for you as it has for me. Scalp can be a pain to treat as often involves greasy, pasty items that have to stay in and then wash out. I've thick hair which hasn't helped!
I come from a farming background so I'm familiar what the real stuff looks and smells like! Think there was a rumor doing the rounds a while ago that Celine Dion used it as part of her skin care regime. Moogoo is more human friendly, main thing is that it's definitely not anywhere as thick or greasy as cow version. Somehow they have been able adjust and keep the natural healing and conditioning properties.
They also do a Eczema & Psoriasis Balm that i use for my elbows.
Let me know how you get on, fingers cross for you!
Loads of pharmacies listed there
Has anybody seen it on sale online?
EDIT: doing a search for udder on amazon gets similar products for humans, along with proper cow stuff.
I emailed one of the stockists in sandyford asking for prices and if it was in stock
I then replied saying I was using it for scalp P and he said
Can buy on line from moogoo.ie site but prices pretty much similar to stockist so if you want to avoid delivery charges I would try get it in local pharmacy or health food shop.
Good to hear pharmacists getting success also! Must see if local health shop have the scalp cream
I have had this scalp problem for I'd say over 10 years now. Always put it down to dry scalp and tried all the usual shampoos, Neutrogena T-Gel, Nizoral etc...
So finally went to my doctor last week and he has prescribed Betamousse, anyone else tried this? I read most of the thread but didn't see anyone else mention it..
It seems there are so many different products out there and everyone is different as regards what works for them but its good to see there are many other people out there with this very annoying condition!!
I've used it and still have some in my "psoriasis armoury", and still use it from time to time. I also use Stieprox shampoo (prescribed) and between the two of them the scalp stays clear.
I'm also using enbrel (as I was very severe) but i think the other two are controlling the scalp.
Will give it a try anyway, am willing to try anything, this problem has been going on for too long!
Also am intrigued about what I've been reading about cider vinegar, think I might try it if I have no success with Betamousse!
If you look on google scholar you can see studies done on various readily available creams. I have been using aloe vera gel for the last week or so, combined with the nappy/zinc oxide cream mixed with veg oil. I am the clearest I have ever been even after a very heavy drinking session, after drinking I applied cream which I think makes a huge difference, usually I would just go to sleep and wake up dehydrated I think is a combined effect of the toxicity of the alcohol and smoking (I only smoke when drinking). I also did some coal tar with UVB. My skin was a little red one day but I think this was just the mild sunburn you should expect from the UVB, it was fine 2 days after.
The aloe vera gel should be fine for peoples scalps with long hair as it would simply wash out.
Though this one found otherwise
This one would show it reduces reddening (sunburn) after UVB
You could make up your own mixture after finding what works best, this one was testing honey mixed with beeswax & olive oil.
Newbie to this thread but I suffer from psoriasis on the elbows, knee's, knuckles and recently by my ankle, its spreading... I went to the doctor and got prescribed dovobet which is great in the fact that it clears it up but not for long.... I use it really sparingly but its damn expensive to keep getting the perscriptions and then the 120euro for the 120g tube's!
Anyway my dad has been doing a bit of googleing in auto-immune conditions (more so for someones crones disease) and came up with LDN or Low Dose Naltrexone, apparently it works wonders and doesnt have any apparent side effects...
Anyone here using it? If so who perscribed it? Id like to try it out.
Betamousse is a steroid based product and must be used in moderation. Like all steroids, it can work well for a while, but you could end up where you started.
My Doctor is going to perscribe me the LDN I mentioned and I have found 2 chemists in Ireland which will supply it. I will let ye all know what effect it has, if its as described on some sites my psoriasis should be gone in 3-4 weeks and stay away as long as im taking the tablets.
Any tips or balms I can buy to help reduce the reddness of my psoriasis? Too warm in work and need to wear t-shirt. I like to disguise the patches on my elbow. Appreciate any help.
The bonus is I find zinc oxide creams to be excellent for psoriasis.
Where do you get the Cocoa butter? Just bought some high strenght Aloe Vera gel so am going to give this a try. Also have that Tesco nappy cream, yes its a big white alright.
In some chemist in the US, women use it for pregnancy stretch marks should be in most chemists, I have seen it in supermarkets but it is usually just water oils and then some cocoa butter in the mix. The real stuff is quite thick and beige and mixes well with the zinc oxide creams. Vaseline might also work, not sure.
This is an active "boards deal", not sure if it is any use, I think I read on some forum somebody had good results, possibly here on boards.
