usually beginning with tiny scale-like lesions which join together.
They are often found on knees and elbows, in creases, and on the edge of

to treat. I have spoken to a Neways
distributor with psoriasis who found the following programme very helpful

diluted). If you can soak in a bath it is better. Gently wash with
on a flannel. Pat dry, do not rub. You may find that some scales
will be exfoliated when this is done.
Spray affected areas with a small amount of Eliminator.

applying other products.

N.B. The above regime is a recommendation only. It may not be
necessary to use all the products, using them individually or together
may achieve the desired effect.
Get adequate rest, sleep and fresh air
Don't coat the skin with thick greasy products; it needs to respire.
Use safe skin products -- read labels and avoid all dubious ingredients.

Avoid harsh detergent based degreasers especially sodium laurel/laureth
sulphate (SLS/SLES) found in many shampoos, bubble bath and body washes
which stress and sensitise the skin.
Follow the regime above.
Bathe with a few drops of Bergamot, Lavender or Tea Tree oil in the bath
