Are you suffering from this disease? Any good recommendation for dermatologist in bay area? I am shedding lot of hair and have thick flakes. Very embarrassing in day to day life at office.
Any suggestion or advice would be appreciated.

      I use it with a shower brush, helps for 2-3 days then have to use again. Also just ordered a Tea Tree Conditioner on Amazon excited to try it out

    Have you tried clinical strength head n shoulders shampoo. Its pretty good and you can see the relief in first few days

    I have struggled with this a long time. Nizoral helps. Prescription strength is available. I have also found that using my wifes exfoliating gear on my head is super helpful. I have been shaving my head for years though. With hair...probably less effective.

      How do you cover up psoriasis patches with bald head?

      Would you? Would you assume I don’t know it’s there? I have one shot at life. I’m not living it for anyone else. The hell with ‘em.

      Great that you have so much courage. Wish I could have that. I am embarrassed with flakes falling of my head. Kudos to you.

      Ive heard shaving can also improve it a lot. Try to accept it to a point because stressing about it doesn’t help. Everybody has something they’re dealing with

    Don't ever use sulfate-based hair products again

      Any recommendations for shampoos or lotions?

    Eat clean, get good sleep and don’t smoke.. some factors that can help. If you have very dry skin in general you could get an air humidifier

      What sort of diet would you suggest? Gluten free? I am vegetarian and do not smoke

    Any shampoos recommended here are sulfate free?

    Isn’t pasoriasis a type of autoimmune disease? Dermatologist may recommend Humira or Enbrel to suppress immune system if it is that bad. You may want to schedule asap since good dermatologist may have full schedule already or several months out for the appointment.

    First off see a dr - don’t get your medical advice on blind. Second, Ive personally found that sun and saltwater clears up psoriasis almost immediately, so take a vacation and swim in the ocean.

    I think then you’re already fine then (diet). Maybe eat some lean beef :) maybe you’re lacking some oils sorry about this. I have very dry skin it gets much worse in the winter. Yours might be seasonal too

    Lidex or fluccocinonide will do the trick within 2-3 days. Nizoral wont work
