Is there a poultice that i can make to put on my scalp for my psoriasis? I can’t stop scratching and it can ooze a clear liquid at times. I am doing a colon detox and liver detox at this time to try and rid this from my body but in the mean time this keeps flaring up.

David Hoffman, in his book "The New Holistic Herbal", lists comfrey, chickweed, marshmallow or balm of Gilead as providing temporary external relief for psoriasis. A poultice or hair rinse can be made with any of these herbs. A drop of tea tree oil in the rinse or poultice solution can also help to relieve the itch.
