No it won't. That's for a fungus, psoriasis is an auto immune diesease.

It works very well for mine . It disappears within days of use on small patches. Great for my face.

Then you don't have psoriasis, you've got a fungal infection. Ring worm can look like small patches of psoriasis.

This is very inaccurate. It's often used in scalp psoriasis shampoos. Just because it's used to treat fungus doesn't mean it won't work on other conditions. Yes it's an autoimmune condition, but you can treat and ease the psoriasis without taking autoimmune suppressants. And ketoconozole works for many people.

I suffered from psoriasis too, but I was cured now. It was bad, and makes me very unhappy. I live in China. Here we use Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat skin problems, I went to many hospitals like this and tried many different treatments, but the effect is not very good until I went to a hospital in the North of China. It works, and now I am a happy person again, I am glad to share this with you, you may not able to go there, but you can talk to their doctors for advice. you can find more information on the website of vitiligotcm.

I would rather die than use a medicine an animal had to suffer mercilessly for, and many "traditional" chinese medicines and products are made with a flagrant disregard for animal welfare and an utter lack of humanity.

Rockabillyvenus, what an utterly ridiculous statement. I'm an animal lover but let's face it, a human life is infinitely more significant than an animal's. Sorry. The "use" of an animal's life to ease human suffering unequivocally aligns with the natural order of things- and it's absolutely right and animals are one of nature's most beautiful resources for us to use in healing the sick.
