Hello everybody,

For the last 10 and more years I’ve been having huge problems with psoriasis which now covers my whole scalp, without any really successful treatment so far. I’ve just started Enbrel, so we’ll see if that will work. But the question I have is regarding Witch hazel - some people recommend it as a quick fix to get rid of scales and flakey skin.

It’s not much but it’s at least some improvement if my hair could look relatively normal. But the thing that worries me about using Witch hazel is that most preparations contain alcohol and that will just dry the skin more. What’s your experience?
