I have had psoriasis on my scalp for several years as a child growing up. Itchy to the point I had to let my hair grow because if I cut it short you
could see the build-ups on my scalps and the blood from when I would scratch it. I had used this shampoo called " Denorex ". It wasn't like the new
one's out today, I remember using this stuff and it BURNT my scalp - I had to leave it on for 5 mins each shower. The psoriasis on my scalp finally
cleared up before the bottle was empty. How ever, after a BMX accident, scares on my legs healed into psoriasis. My right left, ankle to knee was FULL
of psoriasis. As a boy back then, I didn't care and just went on with my day - until it started to develop on my ball sack. Once it got there, I hit
depression, didn't want to go out, didn't want anyone to know I had psoriasis, I would fake being sick to not go to school. I had tried 100's of
cream's, every time I saw the doctor I would get a new cream. Finally I was fed up with this, felt like a scam to me, swipe my health card n get
money on top of the prescription you get money - WTF? right? I then met a girl, we started dating, her mom worked as a receptionist at a local clinic.
One day, a salesmen came in to try and sell them psoriasis cream's and they were interested - before the salesmen left he said " If you have a
severe case you know of, we will give him a test tube for free before you start prescribing the medication ". Her mom thought of me, brought me in
for assesment and sure enough i walked out with the cream. It was worked like a MIRACLE - im talking 4 weeks of applying this to the affected area and
no more psoriasis for me, comes back midly in the winter time but nothing a tanning bed can't fix. If interested, the cream is called "Dovobet".
Hopefully it can help more then just me. Mind you, 200$ CND a tube is pricy but worth it for the self-esteem.
Just my 2 cents
