Yes- You Can Say That
I was searching the internet for hours looking for the same question.
I heared a lot of people going to israels dead sea and get a long term cure.
that way they have to go only once in few month even one a year.
Im personally going to try it- tell you all about it later on.

Sorry - NO cure
There is no cure for psoriasis. There are plenty of bogus medications out there in the world that help with the discomfort, but there is no cure. I've has psoriasis for over 10 years now and it covers about 60% of my body. My 7 year old daughter is ashamed to be seen with me in public and I'm pretty sure my husband is cheating on me. So, if you find a cure please let me know!

I would try drinking aleo vera gel! Sounds weird, I know. I thought it was weird at first too, but it works. If you are allergic to garlic, onions or tulips, you shouldn't drink it though. Not sure why, but I guess it's from the same family of plants or something.

I've had psoriasis for about 15 years. It went into remission when I was pregnant with my first child and at times it's been better or worse, but right now it's covering about 10% of my body. A few years ago, my friend who moved here from England, told me about a product that's popular there. She said that she sold it and other products from a company called Forever Living, much like the way Avon is sold here. She said that she sold it to some ladies experiencing hair loss, which I have been afflicted with due to severe scalp psoriasis, and that it reversed it.

She herself had been drinking it for 5+ yrs every day and had the most beautiful skin I had ever seen. Thought it was worth a try. I was very skeptical and didn't for a minute believe that it would make much, if any, difference. I started with just 1oz a day for a week and then moved up to 2oz a day. Then after one to 2 weeks, I saw a huge reduction in my plaques, which were covering my entire scalp, my chest, my back, my stomach and some on my arms. After a week or so longer, I had No visible psoriasis. I couldn't even believe it. Within a couple months my hair was looking fuller, my skin looked amazing and so did my nails. My IBS symptoms also seemed to disappear too. I did some research and found out that aloe is a natural anti-inflammatory. It also decreases LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, while increasing HDL (or so I'm told), which is an added health bonus. The downside... it can cause diarrhea. But if you only take 2-3 oz/day it shouldn't. If it does, just reduce your intake.

There's also a study that showed large doses of oral aloe in rats over a 2-yr period seemed to increase the incidence of cancerous colon tumors. But, the researchers couldn't conclude whether it was from the aloe or from the chronic diarrhea the rats had from the rather large doses. But, just like any medication that the dr. gives, it seems like everything has at least one potential side effect. The same study was also conducted on mice and there was not increase in cancerous tumors for mice. I do my research the right way, since I'm a nurse. I always look at things in depth ;~)

I drank the aloe vera gel from Forever Living for about 6 months when I was on it. I didn't experience any side effects and I haven't heard of anyone else having side effects except for the diarrhea that I mentioned earlier. I stopped for a while and my psoriasis very slowly returned. Since my psoriasis isn't severe right now, I'm going to try topical aloe for a while to see if that will do anything. I found a study that showed that 88.5% of study participants who applied pure aloe to their psoriasis 3x day every day for 5 weeks showed no signs of having psoriasis. The others all had significant reductions. So, I'm hoping that this works. I just bought some aloe shampoo, conditioner, and spray to see if it helps my scalp and I bought some aloe body gel for the psoriasis on my body. I bought all of this from Forever Living, just in case you're interested. I'm sure you can find other companies that sell it as well.

I usually don't make recommendations, but the results with aloe (at least drinking it) were amazing! Actually, the Walmart here sells aloe gel for drinking in the health care section by the pharmacy. Not sure if all of them do. It comes in a big jug. I'm sure there are plenty of places to purchase it if you decide to try it (health food stores, online, etc). And if you do try it, let me know if it works for you.

If you want to try drinking it, just know that it tastes horrible. I chased it with orange juice right after to help. I think the gel is better than the juice. I only used the gel drink. The gel contains the whole leaf, even the peal. So, the gel has pulp and it's a little slimy. 2 oz isn't much though. You can drink it in one shot. I've done 4 oz before and couldn't do it all in one drink. That was much worse. Also, make sure that the aloe you buy is meant for drinking. Most aloe products in stores are meant for topical sunburns, moisturizing, etc.

Hope this helps you!!! I hate living with my psoriasis. I'm loosing my hair again because of my scalp psoriasis and I'm getting new guttate patches every day. So, I can 100% sympathize with your feelings of embarrassment!

no cure
nope but, my dermatologist had me on Diflucan (which they use for yeast infections) and it worked after the entire month treatment. It didn't come back for 3 months but, even the generic brand is $12.00 per pill and you take 2 per week for 1.5 months. I can't afford it but... they had it for $5.00 per pill in Cozumel!!!!!!!

I feel your pain
I have had psoriasis for 30+ years. I began to notice 3 years ago that, after playing guitar for several hours, my eyes would red up and itch. It got worse as the months went by and they soon began to swell and itch like poison ivy burns. It was lasting longer and longer up to two weeks to return to normal. I had a patch test and discovered I have become extremely allergic to nickel after years of regular contact. My doctor told me a slight nickel allergy can advance to extreme with more and more nickel contact. I changed all frets, strings and other hardware to from nickel to stainless steel on all my guitars. I can now play a full show with no ill effects from nickel. As a side benefit after about six months after the the changes to my guitars my psoriasis is now clear.
I found out there is allot of nickel in this world. My office chair, belt buckle, snaps on jeans, some door handles, tools, fixtures, glasses, dirt, golf club shafts, key rings, jewelry, lots of musical instruments, and many many other things. This substance should be outlawed. If you have psoriasis it may be a nickel/bronze allergy.

I'm glad that your treatment regimen is working for you, but coldtar is known to be extremely carcinogenic. It's been classified by he Internal Agency for Research on cancer as a Group 1 carcinogen. My dr. here in Memphis won't even prescribe it. In fact, it's been outlawed in CA. I just wasn't sure if you were aware.

I used coldtar shampoos for years and they worked at reducing my s/s, but I'll never use them again. Have you tried aloe? I just ordered some pure aloe. I read a study that showed that participants who applied pure aloe to their psoriasis 3x day for 5 days had their psoriasis go into remission. The other participants showed significant reductions. I'm going to give it a try and see if it works. I'm hoping it does. I'll post updates once I get it in the mail and start using it :~)

Best treatment for psoriasis? Is there a cure?
Given the different types of psoriasis and the different chemical make up of everyone's body - one universal cure would be difficult to come up with I guess. There is one method that claims to get rid of the problem provided you keep following it's methods, there are convincing testimonials, but I can't say I've tried it so you will have to decide for yourself.

wenatex bed was the culprit
Hi, I had a skin condition with very similar symptoms to psoriasis, itchy flaking skin, bubbling and in most parts the skin breaking, this affected areas such as my lower abdomin, butt cheeks, scalp, forearms and love handles, thighs, calf muscles and toes, the itchiness drove me crazy, for about a year and a half i went back and forth to my GP for steroid creams, aqueous cream and used this treatment on a daily basis, although it relieved the symptoms somewhat it never totally rid me of the illness, well my GP was at a loss as to what was ailing me so I was scheduled for a full checkup in a few weeks in order to pinpoint what this condition maybe, however after speaking to a few of my work colleuges who have had similar experiences (none as debilitating as mine i might add) i was told that it maybe best to trace back to when the symptoms first started and to find out what in my life may have changed within the last 2 years, well I did this and as a matter of fact 1 thing did change, i bought a new bed (a wenatex) I thought why not give it a try, i was so amazed, after only 3 days of not sleeping in this bed the symptoms have started to slowly dissapate, the flaking on my scalp which looked like it was snowing whenever I scratched it is all but gone, all the itchy areas of my skin are showing signs of withdrawal, so my condition may have been an allergic reaction to the herbs that apparently in this state of the art bed which is supposed to give you a good nights sleep, more like 2 years of pain not to mention the stressed it caused, how amazing the feeling it is to not be scratching so much and so vigorously, i'm putting this story out there in the hope that it could help somebody, it maybe just that simple, it was for me and i suffered for almost 2 years, i can't wait to go back to my GP, cheers All

You're right, there's no cure. But I do believe there are treatments that can foster remission. Drinking aloe gel put me into remission! Of course, it's come back now, but it's been a while and I've been under a tremendous amount of stress recently. But, I'm going to try pure aloe topically to see if does anything. I've ready studies with positive results. If it doesn't, I'm going back to drinking 2-3 oz of aloe a day!

There may not be a permanent cure for psoriasis as the skin disease could be triggered by a number of factors even if the disease goes into remission. The # 1 cause is stress. I tried this new psoriasis treatment and it has worked for me to cure my plaque psoriasis in three weeks. Psoriasisnewtreatment.com works on both the root causes and treatment of psoriasis flare-ups by natural means. I have had psoriasis for 25 years on my scalp and body and I can tell you this one really got me cleared up. It involves liver detoxing and super immunity boosting, lifestyle changes, psoriasis diets and plenty of other stuff. I think the psoriasis diet and immunity boosting is the key here as psoriasis is an autoimmune disease.

Why would you want to boost your immunity? Psoriasis is an overactive immune response. In fact, vaccinations and certain infections, such as strep, that activate a strong immune response, are known triggers for outbreaks.

Since there are so many causes for it I doubt there is a real cure in the way people think of it such as a magic pill.

That being said if we can identify the specific causes in the individual and alleviate them it can probably be prevented. We live in a somewhat unnatural and toxic environment these days. We need to learn to live more naturally

Psoriasis is a skin condition, it is a disease, but it is not contagious. The name comes from the Greek word for "itch." It can be hereditary, caused by external influences (allergic reaction to foods or the environment) and sometimes stress. 4-5% of the population are known to be affected, and this number is growing. However, it is suspected that 1 in 5 people have some form of psoriasis either descript or non descript. Once you have psoriasis, it is very likely you will have it for ever. It may go away, and come back. It might respond to various treatments, and it may not. Basically psoriasis is your body over producing skin cells. You have too many skin cells in one location which is why it often swells up, becomes dry and even flaky. It can often be very itchy, red, sore, cracked and very tender. Psoriasis usually effects the scalp, hands, stomach, knees, feet and elbows. It is linked to dandruff and unfortunately to some forms of arthritis.
A leading psoriasis foundation has this to say about Phototherapy treatment for psoriasis. "This type of treatment (phototherapy) involves exposing the skin to a particular wavelength of ultraviolet light called UVB. Phototherapy is a common, safe and very effective treatment for psoriasis."

Well, the doctors will say "There is no cure" but I am here to tell you that I have cured it, and my friends have, with one little cheap over the counter powder. When I was a teenager, I got the worst case of Psoriasis all over my hands, knuckles, legs, and knees. I went to a dermatologist who prescribed a clear oily medication that I used for almost a year and it never helped at all.

One day my mom was listening to the news talk radio and someone had called in to talk about this amazing little bottle of powder. My mom ran out and got some. I started using it and immediately felt not only relief but saw the rash start to go away. It all was gone within a month, I'd say 60% of it was gone in 2 weeks.

This was when I was a teenager.

It started to come back one time in my early 30's, and I still had the same bottle of powder because I was so in love with it, I didn't know if it would work (because it was so old) but I took it out and put it on the tiny little patch I was starting to get on my knuckle and it worked in a couple of days it was all gone. I'm now in my 40's and I have never gotten it again. All the red itchy dry skin and scars are all gone. Never to return... but if they do, I'll just use this again.

Curious to try it? They sell it at CVS pharmacy, and also they have it online. It's less than $10. It's called "B.F.I Soothing Antiseptic Powder."

Before you leave let me tell you that in my 40 some years of life I have met several people who had psoriasis.... and I always gave up my personal supply of this powder as a gift to them to try because they said they didn't believe there would ever be a cure. In every case, they came back to me smiling and showing me that their skin completely cleared up.

This stuff is fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

I promise if you go get it, and use it every morning after you shower, and ever night before bed, you will be writing in here and telling others how fantastic it is.

Sent with love and caring for all those who suffer from psoriasis, and eczema (it clears both).

Sorry to contradict you but there is a cure for psoriasis. There are plenty of bogus medications out there, is right but there is a cure which the psoriasis foundation does not want to accept as it would mean that they will not be needed anymore. I know as I have been a Healer for14+ years.

My wife and I are proof that psoriasis can be cured and not only skin psoriasis but also nails and head psoriasis. We are now cured with a minimal treatment from time to time. We are really please as it had bothered us for years.
