    Just get a tan and swim in the ocean...can't get anymore natural than that!

    It's worked for me my entire life!

    Oh, and stay away from toxic people who cause a lot of stress!

      Sounds good if doable.  However....  I don't have it, but my wife suffers severely.  Is currently using a prescription antibiotic after we nearly didn't get to the doctor in time to keep her alive (worst infected areas are in and around her ears). 

      She can't tan, being a redhead with lupus and subject to sun poisoning if outdoors for more than a few minutes at a time.  Too disabled to swim, and nothing but sand (and clay) (and thorny mesquite bushes) around here anyway.

      We do keep her away from toxic people as much as possible--for example, we live off grid, no power lines, no really close neighbors--and that does help some.  But things that wouldn't affect you or me = humongo stress to her.  Mental illness doesn't help that in the least.

        Oh, sure I can. If I was alone, I would have moved long ago. Yet my wife does not want to move, so between beach and family I choose family smile

    My friend says that psoriasis also results due to excessive stress. Is it true?

    I did suffer from it, till I reduced my stress, got out in the fresh air and sunshine and started eating healthily.

    I have since looked into it for a colleague and found that Vitamin D3, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil and sunshine are all good for it.

    Mine can get pretty bad if I'm severly stressed but generally it's quite managable. When I was in Greece for two weeks my skin looked the best it's ever been. Sadly I live in Scotland so going for a swim in the sea and getting a tan aren't really options for me. I just use a lot of aqueous cream and try to save so I can flee the country for hotter climates once I've finished my university course.

    Psoriasis is a fungus allowed to exist because of an autoimmune weakness and aggravated by eating carbohydrates and sugars.

    You will find over the counter fungicides like Tinactin and Lotrimin more effective than any prescription medicine.  Use them as directed for treating jock itch or athletes foot which is usually twice a day. 

    When the fungus is dying it will want to crack so keep it moist with olive oil or even bag balm. Olive oil is better because it won't seal out the next application of fungicide. 

    When the rash is gone, keep applying the fungicide for a week or more because there will be fungal spores remaining that can restart the whole rash again.

    Enjoy your relief.
