To all sufferers of dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema I have a very good news for all of you I have found a cure but before that I have to tell you. I had Psoriasis for over 12 years now I am at the 4th day of using virgin coconut oil. I drink 2-3 tablespoon a day or better mixed the coconut oil with your salad in every meal. As I was saying I am just at the 4th day but My God I couldn't believe it my skin looks much much much healthier no itch, no flaking I can even well well sleep better than I used to. Guys trust me it will change your life for the best Im like is this for real. I've seeing dermatologist, these worsening steroids they gave doesnt help at all instead it will get worst. Just give it a try and see for yourself I'm not kidding at all this is it.

Just few things things to remember Cut all your sweets anything that is made of sugar, white flour, starchy foods . Drink a lot of water in between meals, exercise chill out stress free lifestyle. Eat a lot of veggies mixed it with coconut oil. That's All. Please spread this words to all you known who suffers from this diseases.

Coconut oil is helpful for some people, but not for others. I went through many jars of quality CO both orally and topically with no noticeable change in psoriasis. I've read anecdotal reports saying it helps and others saying it doesn't. Definitely worth a try in case you are one of the lucky ones! It's pretty inexpensive and readilly available.

As far as being a cure, well......not for me.

Hi I was just wondering how that was going for u and if it is healing? I am 19 yrs old and have been suffering with psoriasis for about 8 years and I really need answers? I've healed my psoriasis about 3-4 times and has came back every time.

My dear Art,

Instead of coconut oil you can try olive oil or castor oil to see the result.

In reply to Kalpanamayee (I),

Thank you for the thought!

I have tried coconut oil, evening primrose oil, castor oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, canola oil, shea butter, almond oil, black cumin seed oil, vegetable oil, emu oil, sesame seed oil, fish oil, black currant seed oil, borage oil, mineral oil and others with mixed results, but none helped to lessen my psoriasis, only soothe. Jojoba oil and Emu oil would be my favorites as far as being easy to use with minimal smell. I have tried well over a hundred supplements and alternative remedies including everything Ted has posted on EC and again with little if any benefit or benefit that was very short lived and not maintainable.

Psoriasis is different for different people and some people can get benefit from certain oils while others can not. The type and severity of the psoriasis also plays into the equation. I have had guttate, inverse, plaque and the dreaded erythrodermic psoriasis which can kill you. My psoriasis falls into the moderate to severe category and is fairly resistant to many treatments. I suspect that what we know as psoriasis can be caused by many different problems in the body and the psoriasis that we see may only be a symptom of any of those problems. This could explain why something may completely clear one person with psoriasis while doing absolutely nothing for another person with psoriasis.

I am currently experimenting with a supplement that seems to be helping and I will post about it here on EC if it it continues to improve my psoriasis and continues to work over time. For now it is just another experiment for me and it is too soon to even discuss it because I have tried many things that initially showed some benefit, but that was all as the benefit quickly went away.

It's also because she stopped eating sugar, guys. That's a key component she did, which you're probably not doing. As it is a fungus you're dealing with.

I received an email regarding the benefits of Virgin Coconut Oil, so I immediately bought some. At first I was skeptical of using it, but after reading websites about the benefits, I decided to try it on my psoriasis. I have been plagued with this on the bottom of my feet for more than 10 yrs.

I slathered it all over my feet before bedtime and put ankle socks on and go to bed. After 2 wks, the psoriasis has completely gone away. Amazing stuff!

Starting from what appeared to be insect bites, this skin ailment covered most of lower legs and appeared on arms also. It was apparent that anything with fragrance in it was affecting this skin condition, so I proceeded to use soaps like pine tar, and ones that were fragrance free. I purchased approximately $300.00 worth of over the counter ointments, antihistimine, antibiotics from doctor and after waiting seven (7) months to for epidermist I was diagnosed with psoriasis and given prescription for cortisone cream. I filled two prescriptions, with no results. My daughter's husband had an ointment for treating poison ivy, same as mine, only half the strength. I applied this ointment occasionally and EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OIL three times (3x) per day, and got healed with marvellous results within one month. No more psoriasis.

There's no such thing as "Extra" Virgin Coconut Oil... it's just a marketing term to get you to spend more cash. There is Virgin Coconut Oil.

On psoriasis:

Try taking cold processed virgin coconut oil 3 1/2 tablespoon daily continuously for at least a month.

Sip a lemon & a pinch of sea salt after to refresh your mouth.

Coconut oil amazingly cleared the Psoriasis I have had on my hands, elbows, knees and spots on my legs and ankles for over 40 years. I take one teaspoon in the morning. It took about one month to clear. I would like to say thank you very much for such a fantastic website and thank you to all the contributors!

I am a little mad at myself for not using this sooner (I think I avoided it because I hate using anything greasy). For starters, I found my coconut oil at my local Walmart. I use Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil, which you can find in the vitamin section for $10.

The first time I applied this, I put it directly on the affected areas and left it on overnight (to heat the oil I leave the container in a bowl of hot water). By morning, all the red patches had turned white and were completely smooth. I can't tell you how thrilled I was. I now use this as a deep conditioner once a week, as well. Coconut Oil has become my go-to treatment for my psoriasis.

Coconut Oil for Psoriasis.

I developed plaque psoriasis on 1 knee and 2 elbows and guttate psoriasis on my legs 18 months ago. I tried every suggestion under dermatitis and eczema and psoriasis that I could do, applying topically, ACV, Oregano oil, Tea Tree oil, honey, coconut oil, GSE, etc. I have to say all topical remedies did not work for me at all. All the red spots just stayed red and never healed while moisturizing and treating with the above.

What did work was reading a couple of posts stating to do nothing to them, just wash them with a warm cloth. This made sense as I had a couple of spots on my back that I could not reach to treat and they healed on their own. So I also took the idea from the person who was taking coconut oil internally and it had healed his psoriasis. I stopped treating it externally with everything and started taking 1 TBLS of Coconut oil on Oatmeal each morning and another TBLS in a cup of hot chocolate at night. I believed the post that moisturizing from the inside would likely be the proper way to go. So taking the coconut oil internally each day, also 1 Vitamin B complex per day, 1 Vit. C 500mg. per day and 2 capsules of Essential Health Oil per day, (contains flax seed oil,black currant seed oil, Pumpkin seed oil & safflower oil) this all or maybe just the coconut oil? has healed one elbow completely, the other is almost healed, the knee plaque only has a tiny spot left and keeps shrinking and all the bright redness to the flat spots has disappeared. The backs of my legs and sides up my thighs are healed and all that is left is very light pink pigmentation spots on my shins. These are still healing and looking so much better that I can now wear shorts again with no concerns. I continue daily to just wipe them down with a warm wet thick cloth, (just water) and am having great success. The dry lines on my legs have disappeared and I am NOT moisturizing externally! Spots on my hands have completely healed as well. I was putting so much time into daily treatment topically, getting frustrated and I just wanted to say thank you to all the posters who try to help anyone with their suggestions. Those 2 posts were a hit for me and I wanted to share as well with others suffering. As a previous poster said "do nothing" to your psoriasis, they also stated it would take time, yes it does be patient, it's been 2 months for me to get to this stage.

Also I would like to add that I broke out with perioral dermatitis after using contact cement. I used your site and immediately applied ACV to the rash for a couple of days and applied Calendula cream after the ACV dried for a week and within days it healed and in one week completely gone! Thank you so much for this site and to all the wonderful people who take the time to help others!

Coconut oil, is wonderful, it took care of a white cyst on the corner of my eye after having it 6 mos, in 3 days! SESAME SEED OIL, is also wonderful listen to this: I used it on my dog who had a growing skin sore on her forehead, ( looked awful and scary, and the dog was very itchy) for over 6 mos, nothing worked, I started putting sesame seed oil and in 5 days it totally healed and the hair grew back in. Years later I developed psoriasis on my leg it was about 3"x 3" bright pink and scaly, and extremely itchy, I tried petroleum gels and it turned purplish and scaly, it looked awful and scary. I remembered the sesame seed and how it healed my chiuaua, so I purchased a bottle of SESAME SEED ORGANIC OIL and put it on, it started working almost instantly within an hour the bright pink was light pink, the itching stopped. I kept putting more on throughout the day, by the next morning the psoriasis flareup I have been dealing with for several weeks, is almost gone!!! It also worked on my very dry cracked palms, (I do massage so my palms crack and burn allot) All I can say is WOW! SESAME, SEED OIL is the BOMB!!!

I decided to try Coconut Oil to see if it would help me lose some weight. It never, but I had another interesting side benefit. It has almost completely healed up my severe case of Psoriasis. It has at least taken it to the point that I can pay little to no attention to this ailment that has dogged me for almost 40 years now, since I was 7. I started off with two tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil, one in morning one late afternoon. After the short break that proved it was the coconut oil having an affect on my skin, I started using coconut oil capsules 1000mg twice a day, but had to up the dose to 2 1000mg twice a day. I have not experienced any flare ups yet and it has been more than a few months almost completely (old scars starting to fade)clear now.

I get inverse psoriasis under my breasts and the ONLY thing that will get rid of it/stop the burning is a mixture of extra virgin coconut oil and turmeric. I just make a paste and apply topically. IT IS MESSY! Be sure to cover exposed areas. This topical ointment will usually get rid of the raw areas within a few days...every time.

Oh, and for itching, if you have the plant called autumn joy (sedum) in your yard--go out and break a couple of leaves off and rub them into the lesions. This works for mosquito bites too.

I hope this helps!

Coconut Oil, Hot Water

My psoriasis came on 3 years ago - with a vengeance! I did not know what it was, and doctors were clueless (and predictably incurious). It burned, stung, and oozed. The itching nearly drove me insane (or perhaps it succeeded - not sure - haha). The ONLY thing that calmed the burning was coconut oil (extra virgin organic) but was not 100% effective. It sure helped, though.

For the itching, I discovered by accident that running the area under VERY hot water - almost scalding - was incredibly effective and the relief lasted for several hours (AH! Sweet sleep! ) but I had logistics problems because I could only access the bathtub faucet which prevented a lot of areas from getting this relief. You'll need to be right at the controls, as your skin will tell you "hotter" or "cooler" as needed, and it will vary by the moment. Pat dry w/ paper towel & don't apply anything to the skin.

There are a few theories why the hot water works, one of which is that it forces the release of histamines out through the skin. But as far as I know, no one really knows why. It just does.

After the death of two very close friends and a lot of stress, I ended up with stress induced psoriasis all over my head, neck and shoulder. I tried EVERYTHING OTC and nothing worked so finally, I gave up, and started saving money to go to the doctor. I came across the cold water therapy on this site and although I did not intend to use it to treat this issue, it sure cured it. I started taking cold water showers in the hottest months here in Virginia. Immediately I noticed the increase in energy and my hair is SUPER SOFT even after months of harsh psoriasis shampoos that had my hair turning to straw. Call me crazy, but it seems my shower doesn't get as grimy as it did before when I was using hot water. My complexion has improved, and there is an obvious difference in my pores. Basically, I have nothing bad to say about cold showers. After 2 months of them, I can't even STAND a hot shower now.

I found out the cause of my Psoriasis was from elevated cortisol levels. This probably would only help people who developed psoriasis later in life. I stumbled on a cure, yes complete cure, when I started taking a natural support supplement for insomnia. The one I use is called Interplexus Seriphos, but there are many other cortisol lowering treatments available. Get your cortisol levels tested to see if they are high. I was so shocked when all my psoriasis completely went away. Not saying this will work on people who suffered from psoriasis all their life, but I always assumed my psoriasis came from hormone levels being out of sync. I started suffering from Psoriasis after menopause. I very much so wish this helps someone else out there who suffers from this disease.

I am a 68 year old woman and have had psoriasis on one elbow for at least 6 years. The skin area affected was about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. I read on the internet that diatomaceous earth would resolve this problem. I purchased a 25 pound package of human grade diatomaceous earth (DE) for about $25.00 on the internet. The suggested daily amount to take is 1 heaping Tablespoon in a glass of water. I took this amount for 4 weeks and the psoriasis totally went away. Several web sites also suggested that you make a paste of the earth and put it on the affected area. I did this several times but then just put the earth in water on a daily basis and drank it. This would possibly work faster if you did both the paste and drank the DE in water. I stopped using the paste because it was getting on my clothes. I had tried aloe vera and other skin lotions and that didn't work. Diatamaceous earth is silica and it seems likely that this is a deficiency of silica in the diet. You can purchase smaller amounts of DE for a lesser price if this is all you want to use it for. My guess is that it would take longer to clear up psoriasis that covers a larger area. I was really surprised that this worked in such a short amount of time. The reason I tried this was I read testimonials on at least 6 web sites that said this was effective in getting rid of psoriasis. I will continue to use DE. If this is a deficiency in the diet, my guess is that it would be good to take DE at least several times a week on an on-going basis. In addition to working on psoriasis, it is very inexpensive. If used only for psoriasis, a 25 pound bag should last for many years - likely the reason this is not promoted by the established medical industry.

I purchased the larger amount of DE as I wanted to use it for garden pest control. DE has more than 100 health, pet, garden, and household uses, is not a chemical, and has no dangerous side effects to people or pets.

Just be sure it's FOOD GRADE diatomaceous earth. The diatomaceous earth used for swimming pools is dangerous to inhale or ingest.
