Someone in my family is suffering with this condition, and I would like to be able to offer some natural remedies. Other than having heard the term before and knowing it is some kind of skin condition, I really do not know anything about it. Any good links for info to read and/or natural remedies I can pass along would be great..  thanks!

I have it on my scalp REALLY bad :( My dad has it everywhere and uses hydrocortesone cream. I have found nothing that helps, but if you discover anything, especially something safe in pregnancy, I'd LOVE to know what it is!

I'm sorry to hear that, I hope someone can help you out with that.
I'm visiting my grandma in Kentucky right now, and there is an alternative health store nearby. If I get some time to go there, I'll try my best to remember to ask them what they think.

My mom had it horribly. She's on Stelara now, but a couple of things that helped her before she was able to get medicine was sunlight (or tanning/artificial sunlight lamps, etc... anything to get the skin to produce vitamin D), oatmeal baths, and unscented lotions (only SOMETIMES - when the skin starts cracking it gets too painful).

Its usually found in areas where skin reproduces more quickly
The hands and feet have the most keratonized skin cells on the body(skin cells that reproduce the fastest) because they are used the most

Normal cells the top layer dies off and the layers under neath reproduce and move to the surface constantly making new skinskin
In psoriasis the cells reproduce to quickly
