I’m looking for an alternative to my topical steroids and I had heard that going to a tanning salon really helps with psoriasis, I know there is.

I started going on sunbeds at the start of the year for 6 minutes, twice a week and used the ointments at the same time which literally cleared up my psoriasis within 2 months. I must also reccoment uv light treatment, yes once again its 3 times a week blaaah blaaahh but honestly so worth it or sun beds is another option but costs:L anywayssss hope ive helped HJS. I have my own research and study to find the basic cause of Psoriasis.

I have had psoriasis since I can remember, last year after a foot injury I developed psoriatic arthritis. Since it has spread to both feet, both knees, one hand and lower back.

Psoriasis And The Sunbed
Has anyone got any remedies to suggest that might help clear it up? They (at the light treatment) were adamant that he should not use a sunbed and would not give him any information about the kind of light he was getting, but he ended up nice and brown and the dermatology nurse has promised to try and get him some more info about exactly what was in the light treatment so he can work out if a sunbed would be any help at all.
