fluoride in toothpaste was almost banned! I suggest using a natural toothpaste with natural oils, baking soda and mint extract for yout breath. I have a good recipe for a well smelling and fantastic toothpaste you can make your self.

Hey man - I have P pretty much head to toe and started using Vit K about a month ago, I took 100mg morning and night - I generally try to cut out things like red meat, cows milk, coffee and alcohol but I havent cut them out completely, I hadnt ate chocolate in a while and I am a total chocolate fiend.

Within 2 weeks of taking the VK i was clear, pretty much no psoriasis other than skin staining. I then had to take a work trip and forgot them, stupidly I thought it was due to the lack of chocolate and stopped the VK - P is back again, not as bad but I do think it is getting there. I am back on the VK twice a day religiously as of a couple of days ago and am hoping I have found my own personal cure. Another thing to mention is I have started running around 8 miles a week, the more active lifestyle may also have had an effect but pretty much I started VK = P was shifting rapidly after 2 weeks, stopped VK and within a week its coming back.

Have been on Lansoprazole for 14 years. Have had psoriasis for 5. Developed many allergies to drugs, believe this to be to do with how PPIs affect the liver.

Reaction To Metoprolol
I was put on [the label says] "Metoprolol succ er 25 mg tab] at the dose of 1 tablet by mouth once a day.
This was prescribed to protect my heart [as I had congestive heart failure twenty plus years ago] and was going through a in a severe hyperthyroid episode. I took the medicine for two days, 1 pill at 6 pm on two consecutive days. During this time my sleep at night became extremely deep. By the morning of the third day I had trouble staying awake walking down the street or sitting on a train. These problems were to the extent that I felt my safety was compromised. I did not feel it was safe for me to take the pill at 6 pm on the third day so I spoke with the doctor and indicated I needed to go off it be safe... and stopped taking it. About 10 pm that night [having not taken a dose that day] felt an odd painful tingling on the thumb, and 4th, and 5th fingers of my left hand. I looked and saw white patches on those digits. It looked like it had been bleached, appeared and felt to the touch to be slightly rough. These patches resembled cauliflower in color, though flat. After an hour or so the stinging stopped. In a few hours the patches went away. The places where they had been regained their normal color but the surface of the skin appeared a little wrinkled and baggy for a few days, as if something had happened there.
I had never in my whole life had any skin problems prior to this incident. No one on either side of my family has ever had a skin problem like this or any other skin problem to our knowledge. Twenty years ago I took captopril and other medicines for my heart.

After this, because I was afraid to use metoprolol any more, I began using an herbal formula with motherwort and two other herbs. Motherwort allegedly has beta blocker like properties. It is used to treat hyperthyroidism. I started at 15 drops three times a day and within two days got the same tingling, stinging and eruption of white patches on my hands. I cut the dose to two drops and gradually brought it up to 13 drops with no problems. Once in a while I had spontaneous recurrences of the hand problem and had to cut the dose to seven drops. Currently I am at seven drops two or three times a day and may need to go lower or discontinue. Thyroid blood work has been repeated recently but I have not been told the results yet.

Psoriasis/UVB/Alphosyl HC Cream
I first got psoriasis when I was in my second year of university. It started with just a tiny spot. I was having a difficult time with a variety of problems at home. I have always struggled with depression, my dad was a manic depressive and we had a particularly difficult relationship. We weren't speaking at the time and I had a bit of a breakdown. Overnight the psoriasis just appeared everywhere, on my face, body and scalp. It looked like guttate at first as it was tiny red spots about a centimetre in diameter. Basically it was bloody awful! Luckily I was at Leeds University and they had a teaching hospital and a very good dermatology department. They did start me off on Dovobet for my body, Alphosyl HC for my face and another liquid treatment for my scalp which I can't recall. As these were having a limited effect I was finally referred for phototherapy. It worked! It was fantastic, I went 3 times a week for about 2 months. All that remained for a patch on my leg.

Over time, the patch on my leg has grown and become redder. This has happened over the last 4-5 years. Recently I have started a post-grad course at university to train as a teacher. It has started coming back but only on my face, and the patch on my leg has gotten much worse. It has started to make me panic and has really been effecting my depression. It started with one small patch on my nose, now there are five patches and i'm terrified that it is going to get worse. I am due to get a referral to a derm in brighton and am really hopeful that they will refer me for phototherapy, but I understand that there are people who have it much worse that me and need it more so am not certain they will agree. Anyway, just wanted to share really, just writing this down has made me feel much better.

If anyone know of an alternative to Alphosyl HC Cream that would be appreciated as Glaxosmithkline discontinued it, and that worked quite well on my face before. Also, if I can't get referred am considering getting the Dermalight handheld UVB for at home. Any feedback would be great!
