Just had a second thought. Tell your nephew to try the peroxide on the same patch for a couple of days. That way, he will be able to compare the result with an untreated patch. I wish him well. Let me know if it helps.

Try organic pure virgin cold pressed coconut oil. I stumbled on it when I got a jar of it to try on one of my dogs who had a patch of skin he was always worrying at. It didn't work for him because of course he just licked it off (they LOVE it! I smear it on their dry milkbone treats sometimes and they go nuts with happiness), but thought I would try it on my own rash-like flare ups, and it was like a miracle. The only thing that's ever stopped the burning itching hell (I get it on my arm and the back of my hands). I can't live without a tub of it in my fridge at all times, now. I've suggested it to people who have itchy patches and every one has come back saying its a godsend.

Any brand or place to purchase you recommend? Always willing to try new things...

Shoot...I'll have to look when I'm home. But I do NOT buy it at the grocery store or CVS or Wal-Mart.

Laugh, but the best I've found is at the fancy overpriced rich person pet store. It's "human grade- you can eat it!" on the glass jar. I've tried brands from the health food store, the pharmacy...the best is this jar they sell for our dogs. Hilarious, and not surprised that the stuff we get for our pets is healthier than stuff we can buy for ourselves.

I'll check the name and get back to you!

I know that the coconut oil, shea butter helps the irritation.

What is pure virgin cold pressed coconut oil. where would I buy it?

I'll check the name/brand that I buy and get back to you.

But it's just pure coconut oil. It has literally nothing else in it but the coconut oil. And it's a solid. You chip a chunk of it out and rub it into your skin. It melts as you rub it in.

I tried every cocoa butter and shea butter and every kind of light and heavy-duty skin lotion and cream. The topical prescriptions were useless.

I feel for your young man. I was in my 30's when it started happening to me. I would have scabs al up and down my arms from where I had scratched myself to bleeding during sleep. But since I was older I didn't give a crap what people thought- I just wanted the intense itching/prickling/burning/a million tiny tiny tiny teeth biting your individual skin cells all at once/ sensations to go away. I'll pray for him, because at his age I probably would have been self-conscious too.

Man, get some of his friends to take him out and get him good and drunk some night. If he refuses to go out, make him to do some shots at home first. (You can't tell I'm a sober alcoholic, can you? 😂) He needs a night with other people to blow off steam.

Praying for him.

For me getting rid of anything with SLS's (Sodium Lauryl Sulphates) worked as its a degreaser and strips the oils away and don't over shower etc to allow natural flow of the body.

Somethings not right, Too many Psoriasis commercials.. What have they done! Reminds me of the restless leg syndrome commercials that obviously targeted people kicking the H. What did they put in our air?

I totally agree, man. This is a conspiracy website, so I'll say I've even imagined it's something that's done purposely for the profit of big Pharma and its cronies. If chemtrails were real I would put my money on that, but since, according to the experts on this site theyre not, it must be something else they've done. To our air or food or water.

Stress, stress and stress.

It can become self fulfilling.

Griseofulvin is a drug used off list.

Your nephew will be scoffed at for asking because it shouldn't work ........ but it does in many cases.

You take it until the box is empty.

If it works ... it works and if it works it works really well.

He needa kenelog cream. It helps. It is caused by TNF Alpha typically.

I deal with it as a more minor effect of my condition.

I had a bad rash on my arms and the backs of my hands working under stress and heat in a restaurant. STRESS and HEAT started it, and harsh dishwasher chemicals and sanitizer all exacerbated the situation. It was itchy and scabby. When it got really bad the skin would break and ooze. The word psoriasis was definitely used. I think it is more likely eczema, but it is a skin condition nevertheless. A friend gave me a tube of Fluocinonide Ointment USP, 0.05% and when I would put that on it would have a great effect and help my skin heal, but a week later the problem would be back again. For a little over a year now I've been taking Selenium and Nascent Iodine. The nascent iodine tastes terrible so I quickly bought a supply of Single "0" Veg Capsules and I put the nascent iodine drops into a capsule and swallow it along with the selenium tablet. Research nascent iodine and selenium. The dosage ranges all over. Experiment with it. I currently take one 200 mcg selenium tablet with three drops of the nascent iodine. This is a very small dose according to some things I've read online and like I said it took a long time for this to really come to fruition for me. Perhaps a higher dosage would have sped up my healing. I don't know. I'm not a doctor. But my rash or eczema or "psoriasis" condition is almost non-existent now. I still work the same job. I continue to take this treatment and I imagine I'll do so for the rest of my life. I keep the old ointment also as a backup just in case. That old tube of steroid cream still works miracles when I need it. I have not used it in a long time. I hope you can find something that will help, and research, research, research.

Look at this.... NASCENT iodine & psoriasis and read all the comments. People are getting wonderful results.

Don't go swallowing the wrong iodine. Get NASCENT IODINE. The strongest deep earth sourced. It's not cheap.
edit on 29-4-2019 by Generation9 because: I get mine from Infowars... Survival Shield X-2 (NOT X-3) or get Detoxidine which is basically the same.

The only thing that ever worked for me was tanning. Be it natural sunlight or tanning beds.
When I have an outbreak I religiously start tanning. It WORKS, for me.
I tried all the coal shampoos and other nasty crap...UGH.

Don't waste money on medical "UV 'treatments", go to tanning bed or any local tanning place or if its an option lay out in the sun. Do it a few times a week until satisfied.

It's the only thing that ever worked for me.

Yeah I have it as well. But it's fairly minor.

He needs to go to a dermatologist. He can try taking supplements that reduce inflammation. I take things like turmeric, apple cider and more. But that dermatologist is going to give him something stronger or give him advice. If you're overweight it gets worse. etc. but he needs to go.

I've something to add....exema and psoriasis are both something I have.

His site areas indicate a bit. Perfumed or dyes in laundry detergents can flare it up...the ears? Does he /she wear caps?

The arms can get inflamed by tight fonetricted contact of material and material(s).

Ex wear long sleeve...or at least linen shirt and ALL FREE detergent w/o dyes and scents.

Keeping prescription ointments on all day and night is a nightmare and hard to do a job all day.

There is something called Triamicholine(?) prescriped, cream ointment that works in 2-3 days of applying.

its an auto-immune disease (ie your immune system attacks your skin) probably from hyperactive immune systems after getting 80+ vaccines in your lifetime.

As others have said, it's an autoimmune condition. It's internal. You can't fix it topically with lotions or creams.
It's caused by an unhealthy or leaky gut. Guaranteed. You have to fix your gut biome, so the healthy bacteria can flourish. You said your nephew doesn't drink alcohol. Good, That's the first no-no. Some people claim dairy is the worst offender.

A healthy diet of 80% raw veggies with some fruit will do wonders. Add some good probiotics for gut health.
Cruciferous vegetables are an absolute must. A friend had seen 2 dermatologists who were total failures. They didn't help his condition one bit. It's like they're clueless as to what causes it. He followed the protocol below and his psoriasis is all but gone now.

This guy's protocol has worked for many people:

More great info: (Although I'm not convinced about the tamahu oil)

Has there been an increase in cases or just an increase in awareness and advertising from pharmaceutical companies?
I knew people who had psoriasis decades ago and there were commercials for creams to cure it as far back as I remember.
Not saying there isn't an increase because the toxins we are exposed to are probably greater now with electronics held up to our faces every single day. ( I personally dont use a cell phone...)
I wonder if there have been studies of the number of new cases. My understanding is it can begin in babyhood.
The new biologic drugs seem to have made a real difference with treatment from inside instead of topical.

My husband, out of nowhere, developed psoriasis a few years ago. It was bad. He went from nothing, to bleeding cracking skin. It was a nightmare. We tried many things we read about online or bought in stores. Nothing helped him. The dermatologist recommended Humira. The price was absolutely ridiculous even with insurance. I started doing some research. I found Cosyntex. They have a *covered until your covered* program. Our insurance would cover Humira but it was still too expensive. Our insurance didn't cover cosyntex, which is the necessary part for their program. We got two shots per month for two years for free. It worked great, his skin was mostly clear before the second shot. It sounds like he is way past needing a topical cream.

I love coconut oil for so many things. Skin and hair. I use it as a carrier oil for other nutritive oils.
It should be noted however that some people have a sensitivity to it so a patch test is recommended before use.
Usually a dab in the bend of the elbow left for 24 hours will tell you.

I suffer RLS and I had it way before I had a name for it. The first time I saw it mentioned in a commercial I cried with relief because I wasn't crazy.
I get it if I use PM type pain relievers for too many nights in a row or cold medicine with dyphenhydramine or any products containing it like OTC sleep aids.
Its real and it drives the person who has it crazy because you can't relax. Your legs keep sending nerve signals to move.
Resisting movement causes a feeling similar to when your foot falls asleep and you get pins and needles as the circulation kicks back in. Most people understand that description. You simply have to move your legs when that feeling sets in. RLS is like that in many ways but it keeps occurring instead of abating after a short time.
Old fashioned aspirin helps me but not everybody can or should take aspirin.

Thanks everyone for the replies. I'll be looking into all suggestions. He's only had 1 shot, I guess it will take some time
