Psoriasis and area about the eye's...what can I do?

Really not enough room in the topic.

I have been a victim of psoriasis for years but while its been on my face it has never been on my eye lids and above and around my eye's. Its just as nasty as you may assume. First the burning and I didn't know what it was until it started to flake. I see my derm in about a week but this looks pretty bad as it is.

What would you do?



Thanks for all your useful replies. In truth im less concerned about looking like a racoon then the way it feels.

I did call my Derm and she and I are of a mind. I am to use the topical Triamcinolon on the area about my eye's taking care not to get it into my eyes.

The advice about the fish oil and omega 3 is very good... but a bit more long term them Im looking for... But thanks.

While these areas dont flake too much , it does seem to collect into the corner's of my eyes. Pretty sore and I thought I had pink eye... it was just so sudden.

    Owch, sounds nasty.

    Yeah I get it too, have done since I was 2.. however i have never had it too badly on my face, only around the ears. I think that I would do an intense moisturize, either hydromol or vaseline. At least this will prevent any major cracking. Often mine gets irritated by heat so I would try and cool it with Ice if you get this too? Something which really helps me is taking an anti-histamine, it stops it itching or anything nasty like that.

    However if you are worried about what it looks like, you could use some tinted moisturizer or concealer which is quite runny so that the redness is disguised.

    Sorry I wasn't sure if you were asking how to disguise it or make it better :)

    But I hope it gets sorted soon for you, good luck for next week!

    Cure psoriasis starting today - even if your doctor or dermatologist says "it's impossible!"

    I've just followed a guide called psoriasis free for life that completely cured me of this debilitating and embarrassing disease in less than a month!

    Remember, this will not only treat the symptoms that you do see:

    the red, inflamed itchy skin.

    The silvery scales that seem to erupt for no reason.

    The burning or bleeding that occurs around your joints.

    The cracking, oozing and painful patches on your skin.

    But it also treats the underlying cause of psoriasis - the part you don't see - the actual immune system deficiency that causes these itchy patches to appear and scale over.

    For more information, check here : .

    You can definitely get back your life, your confidence and your self esteem!

    I've inherited this also. I've never had it on my eyelids but next to the eyes on the temple area. I got it to go down fast with a cream the doctor prescribed. If you don't have any skin cancer risk in your family history I'd seriously ask the doctor about puva light treatment. Until you get to the appt. I'd wear tinted glasses. If anyone asks why tell them you have an eye irritation and have a dr. appt. soon. I feel it's no one else's business but there are inquiring minds that want to know I've learned.

    I also would check out the site: as there are many sufferers of this on there and they can tell you what worked for them and what hasn't and vice versa if you want other ideas.

    You need to start taking cod liver oil or omega fatty oils and flaxseed oil daily. You can find it in capsule form in the pharmacy or Wal-Mart stores. Typically, the dosage is three time a day. I take both cod liver oil and flaxseed oil every day and I give it to my dog as well and her dermatitis went away and her coat is shiny. I also reap the benefits as my skin is very smooth and healthy looking when I stick to the regimen. When I stop, I notice blotches in a short time. You should also include olive oil in your diet. Sprinkle it on your salad and cook with it. You also need to keep your scalp very clean. Wash it Sebulex. It will clean your scalp and deter flaking.
