At this point I am. But my right elbow is bad and so I can't fully extend my right arm. There is now a clear difference in my two triceps as a result of the limitations on my right arms movements.
On the other hand my fingers are getting better from tinkering with my diet.
Intermittent fasting has been known to show improvements but I'm not sure there's a consensus on the mechanism behind this.

I just want to say i had very bad psoriasas on my scalp to the point the couch and the car would be destroyed it went on for years and was a massive confidence knock i was always self conscious. Everytime i went to the barber they would talk about it and it drove me nuts.
Anyway i tried loads of everything but the thing that completely got rid of it for me 4 or 5 years ago and it had never come back is MooGoo Shampoo. I use it everyday and to say it has completely changed everything would be an understatement. https://moogoo.ie/milk-shampoo
Id advise anyone give it a shot its only a normal shampoo

Anyone having Psoriasis, did you notice it gets worse in the winter?

Sunshine is the only cure that has ever worked for me. Two weeks abroad and it vanishes.
Any suggestions on a EU based site which stocks tar shampoo that ships to Ireland? Polytar is now very expensive due to Brexit unfortunately
Capasal has tar but never found it much use.
Colloidal silver. That is what sorted it out for me quite fast. Cost is negligent as it is easy to make your own.
I get it very bad on my hands and feet (I associate it with stress at this point). My go to was dovobet but costs a fortune, got a natural salve from mother earth skin care after meeting them at a craft fair in arklow shopping centre one day. There in Facebook, I really recommend it. Very good especially when it starts to flare up

What's that and how do you make it? Tried many different shampoos over the years for psoriasis flaky scalp, currently using TGel Therapuetic bought in Boots.
I recently went keto(well 8 months)...
Had scalp Psoriasis, but it's all gone, no more itch, plaque deposites...seems to be cleared up completely
If you google it you can find much more than I can write in here. All you need is distilled water, some fine silver (has to be 999 fine no sterling) and cell phone charger. Or send me a pm when you will be in limerick next time and I can give you some to try.
Thanks Patnor will do if heading down limerick way. will check out google too
I had surgery yesterday and so had one shot of IV antibiotics and now on a course of antibiotic tablets - but have only taken one tablet so far. Just Augmentin, nothing fancy. However, in the 24h since my surgery my large patch of psoriasis has more or less disappeared. This is a large area running from my elbow to nearly wrist and covering my whole arm width. It's been there for years. Constantly itchy, raised and scaly plaques and fresh bits at the edges that bleed. And it has just disappeared. Has anyone ever experienced something like this before?
I'd not heard of anything like this my first suggestion would be to keep a daily photo diary of it for your specialist, documenting this feels like it would be important
@Hippo, were you fasting prior to surgery ?
I was fasting for 12 hours.
I don't have a skin specialist. I also don't have photos of what it was like before though.
Still holding up after 5 days. Just finished the antibiotics so we'll see if it stays gone! If it had gradually healed I wouldn't have been so surprised but it basically disappeared in 24h.
Sounds like you've guttate psoriasis

i follow this guy on YouTube and he seems to know his stuff regarding dietary and medical conditions. He talks a lot about Keto and Intermittent fasting. He recommended a cream for psoriasis, it comes under a different brand on the Amazon UK site but seems to be the same product.
I haven’t tried it myself but could be work a shot for those stuck. It’s cheap enough…
I'd be very reluctant using those creams, they could easily have steroids in them
My Dad has had it for decades, he uses coal tar shampoo for years (Polytar) and he swears by it, he uses it as a kind of all over shower gel hair and body... there is a small tube of ointment he’d use on his hands and arms but I can’t recall the name I’ll try and find.
Anyone got experience of having tonsillitis and then getting a severe Psoriasis outbreak?
I got tonsillitis so bad that I ended up in A&E 2 weeks ago and now my psoriasis had broken out; it’s intensely itchy too
