You need to see a doctor to get anti-fungal treatments. It still may not go away completely.

Gluten free diet helps too, along with Omega 3 fish oil, zinc and selenium.....

I was messing with you and implying you had a fungal infection.
Seriously though. Try Pine tar. If you look for it in Equine or farm supply stores you can get it for a good deal. It's a little messy but it does wonders for skin conditions.
It's natural.

I have other things to do that's what takes me so long.
Yes it is frequently used on horses. For their hoofs and skin conditions as well.
It is also effective on humans. Sort of like how Bag Balm is made for cow udders but is great for human use as well.
I'm not kidding or making it up. Try some pine tar or pine tar soap. It's cheap, smells good, and can't hurt.

Go see a dermatologist.

I have it, but it's not noticeable.

I use cortisone cream.

I also use a very gentle soap like dove or oil of Olay or I break out in eczema.

My allergist said it's all the same underlying cause.

I've been to the Dermatologist and I use Taclonex! I have a small patch on my back, so I tan to make it go away, it usually helps! I use Oil of Olay body wash and I take luke warm showers....
I just thought that maybe there is something to use from in the olden days to help it! I was told to use horse hoofs or something like that!

It's a condition of the immune system...ask your doctor about Embrel...

I am pretty sure they only use that in really severe cases, because of the side effects.

I've had talconex too. I find that using cortisone a few times a week treats it without using it. It depends in the severity, tho. I just get it behind one of my ears, on one of my elbows, and on my one knee, but it's really small areas ... Smaller than an eraser head.

It doesn't really bother me much. Do a google search for pictures of it and some people's whole necks and head are covered with it. So mine is very mild. I think those are the people who need embrel.

Once you get it control, just stay on top of it or else it will flare back up. You shouldn't have to use the medicine as frequently, tho.

Soreyeassis?
That's easy to fix. Quit staring at peoples butts and they'll quit hitting you in the eye.

You're welcome. No charge.

The side effects that I've read are pretty risky! I don't have it that bad though and thank you Marissa!

You can always scratch at it with a wire brush. If done over a fish tank it creates a kind of virtual snow globe for Nemo...kids love that stuff.

My grandmother has it. It can be from mild to very bad case. If not treated it will only get worse.

You can get OTC's such as salicylic acid. It will cause the top layer of skin to shed. Use any OTC steroid cream . Also wash with a moisturizing soap and a heavy cream or lotion afterwards to lock in the moisture .

Google and you can find brand names for OTC treatments.

Sunning is a bad thing but it will clear psoriasis .
