    I've had psoriasis since I was 26 (58 now) and have gone through all the ointments, topical creams, UVB light therapy and arthritis cross-over drugs. Now, I still have the skin plaques and psoriatic arthritis, something about 15% of suffers get. Remicade is good for that but of limitied use for skin control. I stumbled on this in the drug store aisle and said what harm could it do. I knew the main ingredient, coal tar was a help. After 2 days the plaques vanished by 80%. I kept it up and my skin (knuckles, elbows & lower legs) were unbroken with reddish patches. It's been 2 weeks and I've got mostly solid skin but I've shifted to an every 3rd day treatment because it does dry out the skin. Moisturizing lotion on the other 2 days. Some folks complained about a greasy look & feel but to me it was just like using petroleum jelly, the key is to spread it thin. There is a small amount of coal tar odor but that fades quickly.

      My psoriasis has really cleared in just a few weeks. I have very severe psoriasis and do not take any prescriptions for it. I just use a lot of supplements. This is the first cream to clear it up I have used since prescription creams!

            My Down syndrome son has been suffering with psoriasis for the past 19 years and we've tried all the prescriptions and suggested creams, etc. His psoriasis had worsoned this past winter and the regular prescriptions were not working, so I tried this, and so far it's working!!!I apply it after bathing with the Psoriasis Wash then I use Amlactin-(Amlactin also helps with KP)and in between as needed, I use Glysomed to help keep the area moisturized. My son seems so much more comfortable now!

              I have suffered for years with the spread of sebboreah from my scalp to the back of my ears and into my ears. It has been scaly, itchy, red and embarrassing. I have tried everything to no avail until this salve. I noticed a difference on the first application. Within two weeks using it very sparingly the condition was almost gone. I did not use it everyday. I only use it a couple times a week or if I notice the itching coming back. To me, this is nothing short of a miracle!! The tar smell disapates within a couple of minutes of application. I absolutely will not be without this product!!!

                I use this sparingly on areas around my ears that have broken out with Seborrhea like my scalp. It stops the itching and the scaling. I have even been able to apply it less often than other things I have tried, including prescription ointments. I know this condition becomes immune to everything which is why I am using it sparingly. I sure hope I continue to have such good luck with this. It is wonderful!!

                      I use to have several 2-4 inch round psoriasis patches all the time as well as several smaller patches. If I use the Psoriasin Mulit-symptom ointment twice daily, the patches will eventually disappear. This does not happen overnight - but it does over time. This is the ONLY product that has ever cleared up any of my patches. It is certainly worth a try. I recommended it to a friend who has also seen positive results.
