Here’s the long story.
I had a sun spot on my forehead and I got the doctor to cut it off.
Then I started to get a rash around that spot. I put moisturizer on it. Nothing happened.
I tried a few different creams. Still nothing happened.
I went back to my doctor and he recommended some sort of cream that had a cortisone base and an anti-fungal property.
Bill for the doctor, $80. Cream, $25.
Still nothing happened.
I went back to the doctor, ($80) and got a referral to a skin specialist. It’s strange that you just can’t go to the skin specialist yourself.
The specialist was busy and I couldn’t get in for about 6 months.
Finally I go to the specialist. It was a no-nonsense visit and after listening to me rambling on for 30 seconds, she interrupts and says, ‘let me have a look at your elbows.’ Interesting my left elbow, the one I rest on a lot is always a bit flaky and I rub heel balm onto it to keep it under control.
Then she asks, ‘Did either your mother or father have psoriasis?’ I said my mother had it, mainly on her elbows.
She said, ‘You’ve got psoriasis. Around 5% of people inherit it.’
She wrote out a prescription for some waxy ointment and trousered $170 for 15 minutes work- which is nice, if you can get it.
I went over to the chemists and he compounded a jar of waxy stuff. Another $35 for 50 gms of ointment and all done.
I started using it and the rash went away – well mostly. It still crops up now and in different places, but not much and most people wouldn’t notice it.
In February 2012 came out with a rash on my lower leg and tried everything, paw paw gel (which I reckon is the miracle salve for itchiness generally) and a cortisone-based cream. I tried an anti-fungal cream. None of them worked.
I thought I might have an allergic reaction of some sort so I went back to my doctor (another $80) and got another prescription but it didn’t work. I even bought some calamine lotion to quieten down the itching, which it did to an extent. But the main effect of the calamine lotion was to make my leg look liked I’d just walked through a lime pit.
Then the penny dropped and I started back on the psoriasis ointment I’d got from the skin specialists.
It worked a treat and I went and got another jar of it.
Here’s the prescription
LPC 4% in betamethasone valerate 0.2mg.gm ointment.
A compounding chemist will mix it up for you. You may need to spend $80 to get your doctor to write out a prescription. It’s baloney. It’s how governments protect the medical industry from regular folks like you and me and why doctors can afford holidays in Arlberg and Kitzbühel.
So there you go.
I’m lucky, I see some people with psoriasis who have great masses of red, irritated skin. I don’t know how they put up with it.
I get internet health expert, Frank Mangano’s newsletter and he recommended Katy Wilson’s Psoriasis for Life Program.
I’ve looked into it and I reckon that if you have psoriasis you might want to look into it as well.
As I found out, conventional Psoriasis cures rarely tend to cover the symptoms and rarely cure Psoriasis from the root – which ‘Psoriasis Free For Life’ claims to do.
Typical Psoriasis treatments include creams, ointments, pills, herbs and supplements, most of which focus on temporarily relief. You’ve got to keep forking out month after month. You’ve got to walk around knowing that the ointment is soaking into you clothes. It’s just one big inconvenience.
So, I’m going to encourage you to click through to the Psoriasis Free for Life website and see for yourself what Katy Wilson has to offer.
Compared with the rigmarole that I had to go through, and not to mention the cost, the Psoriasis Free for Life program seems like a good investment.
It comes with a 100%, no-hassle guarantee.
This is a natural psoriasis remedy, there are no side effects and it can even be used on children.
Is it a quick fix? Nope. It usually takes a month or so to see results.
Is it a quack fix? The long answer is that you can never be sure about any treatment for any condition. Some treatments work for some people and not for others and often you have to scout around and try out a few treatments before you hit the jackpot. I know this is definitely the case when treating musculo-skeletal pain.
But for $29.97 what have you got to lose?
So far it’s cost me close to $500 for visits to the doctor, specialist and various creams and ointments and if you have psoriasis, as well as the inconvenience I bet it’s cost you at least that much as well.
So, on the advice of Frank Mangano, I suggest you go to Katy Wilson’s website and see for yourself what her program is all about.
You can try the Psoriasis Free For Life™ for a full two months – risk-free. If you don’t see a remarkable decrease or complete relief from your psoriasis, Katy will cheerfully refund of your purchase. You couldn’t ask for more than that.
In the mean time stay tuned, highly tuned and move heaven and earth to rid yourself of your psoriasis.
