Tea tree oil for scalp psoriasis?

Ginny_CaMay 5, 2004

Anyone tried this? I was told it could help. I would like to find something besides prescription meds to keep this condition under control.

Thanks, Ginny

I know I keep referring to dogs here, sorry!

One of my dogs came to me from the shelter with a raging case of resistant staph - antibiotics would only work temporarily, and the medicated shampoo didn't help much.

Someone suggested TT oil (dilute it, it's very strong!) and it cleared the scabs & redness up within a few days, I was quite amazed. It still flares up once in a while, but the oil solution clears it up so quickly & I'd rather use that than antibiotics.

I'm not sure about psoriasis, but it wouldn't hurt to try. Were I ever to get some sort of skin condition, I'd try it.
