I've had psoriasis since I was 26 (58 now) and have gone through all the ointments, topical creams, UVB light therapy and arthritis cross-over drugs. Now, I still have the skin plaques and psoriatic arthritis, something about 15% of suffers get. Remicade is good for that but of limitied use for skin control. I stumbled on this in the drug store aisle and said what harm could it do. I knew the main ingredient, coal tar was a help. After 2 days the plaques vanished by 80%. I kept it up and my skin (knuckles, elbows & lower legs) were unbroken with reddish patches. It's been 2 weeks and I've got mostly solid skin but I've shifted to an every 3rd day treatment because it does dry out the skin. Moisturizing lotion on the other 2 days. Some folks complained about a greasy look & feel but to me it was just like using petroleum jelly, the key is to spread it thin. There is a small amount of coal tar odor but that fades quickly.

Old fashioned tar product

This is one of those tar products that smell like sulphur. If you have used those products in the past and have not found them effective, you will probably not find this helpful...Read complete review

    Comments about Psoriasin Multi-Symptom Psoriasis Relief Ointment, 4 oz:

    I've had these ugly red scaley bumps on my elbows for the last six months! I didn't know what in the world was going on. I would ask my doctor (previous one) and he said "you have exzema". I tried the exzema meds and nothing worked. One day I did a check for psoriasis and the pictures looked exactly like my elbows. After four days of using this (three times a day), my right elbows psoriasis is gone! My left elbow still has some, but it was way worse off to start out with. I'm so happy and excited I can't even tell you. I've tried other salycic acid meds and they don't do anything. I think the tar is the way to go! I joined drugstore.com just so I could write this review. I want everyone to know about this!!

              I have been fighting psoriasis for several years. Winter time when I can't get out in the sun is the worse. I have tried all sorts of medicine even precriptions and have better luck with this. My mother and Aunt had it years ago and they had some real good results with TELGRIN but we have been unable to find that any llonger. She thinks that this has the same ingrediians or they just changed the name. Thanks, very much for helping me. I had nearly became a hermit since I was so embass to be seen with all of the white splashes on my body, especially the ones that I was not able to cover up under my clothes.

              I use the product whenever I need it. That is not the case with creams and products furnished by the VA.
              This product immediately reduces the redness and discomfort associated with psoriasis.
              I have found that it has a greasy component, but I don't let that bother me. The benefits far outweigh any disadvantages I have found.

                  I bought this ointment for my dad who's had psoriasis for a few years now. He has tried various ointments and none have worked for him like Psoriasin. He uses it a couple of times a day and we've all seen much improvement in the few weeks that he has used it. The only drawback is that the ointment has a unique odor that by simply entering my dad's room I can tell when he's used it. But it's not a completely detestable smell, so as long as it helps his skin I think the odor is the least of our worries! :)

                    Was not helpful after three days, set aside and back to expensive but helpful Dovenex.
                    Was concerned by poss. effects of cortisone.
