Welcome to the Psoriasis Help Organisation, otherwise known as PHO. This is a web site dedicated to helping people suffering from the Chronic Skin Disease Psoriasis. This site contains information about Treatments, Handy Tips for living with the Psoriasis and other topics. This is a privately owned site (not a charity), run and administered by psoriasis sufferers, for psoriasis sufferers.
We are not medical professionals, just enthusiastic amateurs, with a goal to provide an informative and friendly environment to learn about Psoriasis and discuss topics with others in similar situations. The primary idea for this site is to provide a discussion forum. A place where fellow Psoriasis sufferers can exchange views and advice on how to live with and treat Psoriasis.
There are many types of psoriasis including Guttate, Plaque, Pustular, Psoriatic Arthritis and Flexural Psoriasis which can affect most areas of the body including the Scalp, Genitals and Nails, both fingernails and toenails. We have some Pictures of Psoriasis which show most of the different types of psoriasis and locations on the body which it can appear. See the menu link on the left.
We also have information on many different types of treatment, Including PUVA, UVA, UVB, Biological, Systemic, Steroid and Non-Steroid based psoriasis treatments. Many of these psoriasis treatments are discussed in greater detail in the Psoriasis Help Forum.

Please use the forum to ask questions about Psoriasis that you would like answered, express views that you have regarding Psoriasis and discuss treatments that you have used or are interested in using. We encourage you to talk about anything that you feel may be beneficial to others and to become part of the friendly community that we have created. Psoriasis can be an isolating, depressing disease and it often helps to discuss your feelings with others that really understand. You are not alone.

Hi friends, check this website out..this person was a severe to moderate P sufferer and with mere strict diet and yoga the p was reduced to nil.
I've just started to follow this as I've had enough of being messed around by doctors. My skin was reduced to paper after using all kind of medication fit for p they say.
Please wish me luck

I am a 62 yo male and have had P for more years than I remember. It was always controllable with Dovonex cream but that was taken off the market.
My P wasn't too serious - elbows, scalp, groin etc. but about 10 weeks ago it flared up and I was diagnosed with 50% body coverage. My Doc arranged for UV treatment and I'm still waiting for an appointment.
Meanwhile, I decided to try a different path and booked an appointment with a local Aromatherapist. She applied oil to my skin which eased the itch and started me on Omega 369 - 3 per day.
We also discussed my frame of mind at the time which wasn't great as I had no work coming in - self employed - and she helped to get me into a more positive frame of mind.
Anyway, I don't want to bore you, but after 8 weeks my skin has stopped flaking and is clearing up in all areas - I don't know which aspect worked but I do know that P has to be treated from the inside out as well as outside in.
I put this down to one or all of the following:
Daily application of Unguentum M Ambiphilic cream ( prescribed by Doctor )
Omega 369 capsules (3 per day)
Vitamin C &E food supplement
Plenty of fish and olive oil in diet.
A positive frame of mind - convince myself that it is getting better.
I am now going to start taking Milk Thistle to see if it improves things even further.
I'll let you know results

Hi all, im thinking of booking a fortnight at clinica mirak in feurteventura. Its a psoriasis treatment center involving sun exposure, salt baths lava mud treatment and vitamin creams applied daily. Ive been to the dead sea which worked well but this place is MUCH cheaper, closer and theres probably alot more to do out of treatment hours. Has anybody been here before or recently? I would love to hear any reviews. And i suggest to any of you to check it out yourselves. The website is www.clinicamarak.com
