I have ear and scalp psoriasis and virgin coconut oil was ineffective as a topical and/or oral treatment to control the symptoms.
I was finally able to control it with a hair product that contains the following ingredients:
Mineral Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Retinol (Vitamin A), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Matricaria Extract, Goldenseed Extract, Hops Extract, Soap Bark Extract, Wheat Germ Oil, Cherry Bark Extract, Calendula Extract, Henna Extract, Horsetail Plant Extract, Saflower Oil, Lanolin Oil, Propylparaben, Fragrance (Parfum), D&C #11, O&C Red #17.
I noticed improvement within the first week of use and overall it has been as effective or better than anything I have tried on my scalp over the past 30 years. It is gentle on my ears also and has a light pineapple scent. It is not a cure, but it definitely helps to control my scalp and ear psoriasis. I purchase it at my local Walmart for under $7 a bottle. Oddly, it does not seem to help alleviate psoriasis on other areas of my body. I assume its purpose is to help stimulate hair growth, but I certainly have not noticed that benefit after over three months of use.

My mom is always raving about wintergreen oil and its antiseptic and miracle like qualities, so I dappled some on my neck and scalp with a cotton ball (no carrier oil). It burned like hellfire for about 2 minutes, almost to the point of tears. But listen 2 days later the scaling was COMPLETELY gone, the redness greatly faded, the skin was smooth and I could finally pull my hair up. Two days! I wish I could flash this on a billboard so all could see. I found that the next time I applied the oil (every other day) it burned less and the evil scaly redness faded dramatically. It is as if the wintergreen zapped it away.
Please all give it a try and share your results.
