    Vitamin D can help and it's good for you regardless so you might as well take it.
    Use a ketoconazole shampoo daily t owash your scalp. Let it sit on your scalp for at least 5 minutes before rinsing. Nizoral is a popular brand, but there's many options out there. This stuff will strip all the oil from your hair so it's important to condition afterwards, but you also have to make sure you're using a conditioner that isn't going to end up feeding the fungus because that will only make the psoriasis worse.
    Some people swear removing certain things from their diet helped them (typically stuff like grains, gluten, dairy, etc.) but I've done countless multi-month trials during my life and nothing ever had any noticeable impact.
    It's a pain in the ass. I've dealt with this shit my entire life in various places on my body and it sucks. I just noticed a patch on my dick so it might be over for me. When I was a kid the doctor told me it would gradually spread across my body as I got older.

      Mine seems to go away almost entirely when I'm out in the sun during summer or when I travel to a warm sunny place. If I add sea water it's even better.
      Supplementing l-histidine 4g/day seemed to help somewhat. There's a study regarding that, look it up.
      With all the schizo health shit I'm reading, it's likely that this is related to mold/fungus toxicity from within. Need to fix gut permeability and all that. I would say there's still hope.

      high dose of vitamin D worked for me
      I had patches on my butt and beard and it's now cleared since I'm taking 25 000 IU of vitamin D daily

        Same + sometimes it flares up a lot during very humid days, which reinforces my idea that it's basically a fungal issue. Either on the surface of the scalp or from within, or both.

        Don't believe the there's no cure bullshit. You just need to work hard to find the root cause.

    I've been suffering this shit for over half of my existence, I havent really found anything that helps besides corticosteroids when theres a hardcore flare.
    Taking baths in the sea kinda helps but I dont live near the coast so whatever.
    I didnt notice any improvement with vitamins nor changing my diet.

    The flare-ups decreased in intensity ever since I started taking finasteride, interestingly.

    As someone who has had a similar condition since childhood I can tell you most of it is caused by stress and that no random store-bought salve is going to resolve your issues because those just make it burn instead of work. For on the scalp I found that shampoo described by a doctor worked best, I don't really remember what was in it, menthol for sure but also another substance that was more important than the mentol, which was also why you needed a doctor to get it.
    Another thing you can do, but that you have to be careful with is look at salves from your doctor containing certain steroids. The reason why I say be careful is that these salves make your skin thinner and the more you use them (like every day every week on end) the more ineffective it gets unless you up the steroid values which is not ideal. Does it work though? Yes, I had my entire back covered with that rash and it cleared up after a week. I stopped using it and it never came back as extreme.

      Adding to that, it will never fully go away. The cream got rid of all the massive flares but when stressed or at random moments you can still have small spots appearing on specific spots of your body. It could be the sun, stress or even sweat causing it, but then the salve takes care of it after just a couple of days of use. The trick is to stop using it once it is gone and to reuse it if a spot appears again. Another downside, if you're unlucky, is that the rash leaves you with patches of skin without any pigment, I have spots between my legs where the skin turned pink and the hairs have turned white, I even have half my lashes white on one of my eyes because of one of those rash spots, but I guess that is a small price to pay for having constant itches, pain and rashes reacting like open wounds.

    Ketaconazole isn't a treatment for psoriasis so don't use that. Vitamin supplements won't make any noticeable difference. In terms of OTC treatments for mild cases, what you want is pic related.

    What really works is injectable biologics like Humira, but those are serious medications that they typically only prescribed for advanced cases. They work really fricking well though.

    Is it okay to do Ketoconazole 2% twice a day? The condition becomes more clear to see on the scalp after use, so I’m thinking if I get it after it comes up I’ll get rid of more.

    This is anecdotal but a about 2 or 3 years ago, when my weight was at its peak, a pair of psoriasis patches appeared on my pubic area. After 1.5-2 years on my ISTness kick and losing 50 lbs, one of the splotches disappeared. I have heard that BF% correlates positively with psoriasis severity. Do with this information what you will.

    Thanks all, great advice from everyone!

    OP here, I use a Ketoconazol shampoo but only once a week, what I also do I grind and mix some sea salt into the Ketoconazol shampoo in my hand and rub into my a feel on my hair for about 30 mins, then I wash it off.

    But I will try using it more frequently

    I also have some eczema around my mouth, thankfully I use aleo vera that clears it up 100%

    I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes two years, so I'm pretty sure my psoriasis is linked to that (autoimmune)

    And I'm absolutely sure that it linked to my stress levels,

    I recently my job due to lots of stress for my supervisor

    Had this all my life as well, including on face and various part of the body.

    At 30 the only that works is shaving. I shave my head, face, torso, armpits and pretty much every area where there is a skin fold + hair. This is by far the single most effective method. Letting my hair grow even 5mm guarantees red flares and skin flakes all over my scalp.

    Some other things that have helped:
    - Nizoral as many have mentioned. Twice a day, let it sit and rinse.
    - Moisturizer (I use Cerave in the tub)
    - Sun and warm weather, but it's only temporary and flares will be back come winter
    - Curcumin and aspirin. I started taking them for join pain but noticed good improvement on my skin, probably from the anti-inflammatory properties
    - Sleep, relaxation, lack of stress

    >reducing symptoms
    - use shampoo with coal tar + salicylic acid
    - for non-head/face psoriasis use steroid cream
    - sunlight/uv exposure at 10-15 mins daily
    - reduce processed food, carbs, diary, alcohol consumption
    - east more leafy greens, lean meats, whole grains
    - lose weight
    - reduce stress via exercise, etc

      Don't do this, it thins the skin in that area and prematurely ages it. I have pretty bad eczema on my face and it goes away entirely if I maintain a good tan. And yes, it's the UV and not vitamin D, as vit D supplementation does nothing for me

    Psoriasis is caused by ongoing low-grade strep infections.

    They form biofilms and hide in your tonsils. Then they seed the gut and form biofilms there. Your liver gets damaged from their toxins then your skin sheds their toxins instead.

    Do a 20 day water fast. Consume nothing but water, electrolytes, and lemongrass/oregano/cinnamon essential oils. You'll shit out black goo then you'll be cured.

    I got my psoriasis under control with skin lotion that contains niacin and Workers Hand moisturizer.
    Not on the scalp though.

    If you got so much shit as in OP pic you might be fricked though. I had like halfway of that growth.

    Apply the moisturizer, wait like an hour, scrub whatever you can off with fingernails or whatever. Be careful to not go too hard or it can crack the skin iirc.
    Reapply the moiturizer through out the day.
    Repeat next day, dont scrape off too much in a day.

    Once you've gone through a lot of the dead skin, and start seeing the surface of the skin, start applying the niacin lotion after the scraping.

    Rinse repeat until gone.

    The lotion with niacin that I use is for anti-aging apparently, quite expensive. But a 70ml bottle in my case lasted me like 2 months.

    It's on my leg and hair hasn't grown there for several years. If it's in your scalp I guess it's time to get a shiny dome.
