    I am in the US and the only shampoo that really helps me is the Head and Shoulders Clinical strength in the blue bottle or Neutrogena T-Gel. The Coal Tar is what helps psoriasis in the Neutrogena. It doesn't smell the best but it works.

    In the UK you can get Exorex shampoo from the chemists, they also do a lotion and skin cream. The chemist where I got mine said you can also get it on prescription

    I too have Psoratic arthiritis or so the specialist tells me, I also come back sero negative for Rheumotoid arthritis, although very close or so the specialist tells me.  Did a member of your husbands family also have psorasis, my Dad had it his entire life, and I suspect he also had the inflammatory arthiritis as well, I can remember his hands being terribly swollen, just like mine, I refer to them as being like boxing gloves.

    Get your husband onto Odorless fish oil, recommended to me by specialist, and it does help me. I take 6 x 1000mg capsules, 2 for breakfast, 2 for lunch, and 2 for dinner, with food is the only way i can tollerate them and have been told the same for others. Benefits micro lines disappear on your face and your skin generally improves, no more reptile legs, flaky skin especially on shins. disadvantge - very greasy hair, I keep my hair very short, and wash it every morning in the shower which keeps it under control.
