Summary: diabetes, alcoholism, bulemia, topped with a 10yr abusive relationship ending in a soul crushing divorce, and job struggles equals a nasty outbreak of psoraiasis. Shocked it didn't happen 10 yrs ago from all the stress.
It all started about a month ago around all *sensitive* areas, I had been crying so much it started occurring around my eyes and got so painful that there was more crying and depression while basically crying blood. Now it's under my arms, on my wrists, the palms of my hands, between my breasts, on my chin, behind my ears, shoulder, and neck. It was so dry and cracking so often.
Tried topically applying ACV diluted with a little water - it does help with the itching however not long lasting and burns like a SOB on cracked skin (of course) and when every crease by your eyelid and corners is an open wound - owww!
Coconut oil also provided temporary relief but again after 30min - 1hr I was peeling more scales off.
The unrelentlessness reached an unbearable pinnacle after spending over 8hrs tweezing off scales yesterday that reappeared within moments.
I gave up and tried the 1Tbsp ACV with 1/2tsp baking soda and a small amount of warm water and took it as a few small shots chased by gatorade.
No doubt it is completely vile and no fun, I took it in the afternoon and planned to take it again before bed but fell asleep. I was shocked upon waking up my eyes weren't glued shut from painful scales and scabs! There was a HUGE reduction in the amount of scales which I removed most of so I took another dose. Right now I can stand and sit without the crease between butt and legs tearing painfully, touch my ear without it splitting, and squinch my eyes shut without grimacing in pain for the first time in weeks.
I'm going to keep it up and see how it goes but I'm already excited after suffering from low self esteem and adding these painful, unsightly scale covered eyes and chin that can't be hidden it would be great to keep this relief and catch my breath to heal.
Also I'm a picky eater and have a terrible diet so I've added more fruits and veggies opting for grilled vs fried things. This didn't seem to have a big impact but still gonna keep trying to opt for healthier choices and cut out junk food. As for alcoholism I weaned off liquor without experiencing typical withdrawals by drinking wine and now have days that I don't drink, so cheers to self improvement.
Will update if it becomes ineffective, good luck everyone!

A couple of years ago I developed an itchy rash on my scalp behind my ears shortly after having my hair colored. It progressively got worse with severe swelling of my ear and high fever. Ended up in urgent care with cellulitis. Antibiotics cleared it up but it kept coming back. After my 3rd round of antibiotics I was diagnosed with psoriasis.
I was told by the doctor to use a medicated shampoo and a product called Scalpicin which helped to keep the itching down and kept it from getting infected but it never went away. I decided to start on the apple cider vinegar regimen.
I would take an empty water bottle and pour about a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in and then add 1/2 tsp baking soda. After it stopped fizzing I added water and drank it. I did this everyday and within a few months I noticed my rash was going away. It was completely gone on one side of my scalp with just a small area left on the other side.
I decided to stop taking the apple cider vinegar just to see if it had anything to do with it. For 2 weeks I did not take the apple cider vinegar and the rash came back on one side with a vengeance. It got infected and I took silver biotics to clear up the infection and started back on the apple cider vinegar drink.
After a couple of weeks the rash went away again. I am now a firm believer in this drink and I am back on my regimen of taking it everyday during the week and take off one or two days on the weekend.

Thanks for the information! Through this remedy,Yahweh seems to be healing my Psoriasis plaques (all!) HalleluYah! I started taking this 3X's a day about a week ago:
2 Tbsp. apple Cider Vinegar mixed with 1 tsp. Baking Soda. (I am 160 lbs. You may want to use less or more baking soda.)
Mix this with warm pure water 1/2 to 3/4 cup.
I take first on rising, during the day, and before sleep at night. The large plaques on my leg are only faint pink patches now, as are the ones under my arms and other places. Before I started drinking this drink, my leg plaques were shedding skin at least twice a day and I seemed to be itching all over. I do follow a healthy diet, taking a number of supplements including lecithin capsules. I was waiting for my Psoriasis to disappear completely before reporting my case. However, maybe my words will help you now if you are are being plagued by Psoriasis as I was. May you also be blessed by this remedy is my prayer!
