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.

Moogoo have a specific scalp cream which is excellent for scalp psoriasis. The 75ml is €15.70 and the 250ml is €21.18. I would also suggest using their shampoo (€14.86 for 500ml) and the conditioner (€14.86 for 500ml). These products produce excellent results. One of the pharmacists here uses the products for the same condition and find them great.

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

Hi all,

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!!

Hi Littlemissh,
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.

Thanks Bravo!
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.

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/1...-91.x/abstract
Quote:
The treatment was well tolerated by all the patients, with no adverse drug-related symptoms and no dropouts. By the end of the study, the Aloe vera extract cream had cured 25/30 patients (83.3%) compared to the placebo cure rate of 2/30 (6.6%) (P<0.001) resulting in significant clearing of the psoriatic plaques (328/396 (82.8%) vs placebo 28/366 (7.7%), P<0.001) and a decreased PASI score to a mean of 2.2. The findings of this study suggest that topically applied Aloe vera extract 0.5% in a hydrophilic cream is more effective than placebo, and has not shown toxic or any other objective side-effects. Therefore, the regimen can be considered a safe and alternative treatment to cure patients suffering from psoriasis.

Though this one found otherwise
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/1...4.01186.x/full
Quote:
Results  Data on 40 patients were analysed. The score sum of erythema, infiltration and desquamation decreased in 72.5% of the Aloe vera-treated sites compared with 82.5% of the placebo-treated areas from week 0 to week 4, which was statistically significant in favour of the placebo treatment (P = 0.0197). Fifty-five per cent of the patients reported local side-effects, mainly drying up of the skin on test areas.

Conclusions  The effect of this commercial Aloe vera gel on stable plaque psoriasis was modest and not better than placebo. However, the high response rate of placebo indicated a possible effect of this in its own right, which would make the Aloe vera gel treatment appear less effective.
This one would show it reduces reddening (sunburn) after UVB

Quote:
Erythema values were determined photometrically after 24 and 48 h. Results:A. vera gel (97.5%) significantly reduced UV-induced erythema after 48 h, being superior to 1% hydrocortisone in placebo gel. In contrast, 1% hydrocortisone in cream was more efficient than A. vera gel. Conclusions: In this study after 48 h the A. vera gel (97.5%) displayed some anti-inflammatory effects superior to those of 1% hydrocortisone in placebo gel. The A. vera gel tested here might be useful in the topical treatment of inflammatory skin conditions such as UV-induced erythema.
You could make up your own mixture after finding what works best, this one was testing honey mixed with beeswax & olive oil.

Conclusion: Honey mixture appears useful in the management of dermatitis and psoriasis vulgaris.

Hi All,

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.

http://www.lowdosenaltrexone.org/

Cheers All,

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.

Zinc oxide is white, the stuff in sudocreme or the nappy cream I posted above. This can lessen redness but is a bit too white. I have mixed it with cocoa butter to make it a more transparent paste.

The bonus is I find zinc oxide creams to be excellent for psoriasis.

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.
