Vaginal Psoriasis and Coconut Oil – This Lady Swears By It


Small ones, big ones, some as big as your flakes!

I recently received a letter from “Lilly” about her battle with vaginal psoriasis, and I just had to share it. Having gone through numerous doctors (some of whom thought it was her kinky sex life that had painted Love Town red), she took matters into her own hands, and found relief from coconuts! I’m not going to spoil it, so here’s the letter.

Lilly writes:

I also have vaginal psoriasis and I came to this site upon looking up solutions. People always say “go to your Dr. and they’ll fix the problem,” but honestly, I’ve had psoriasis on my vagina, butt and body for the past 12 years. I’ve gone to NUMEROUS doctors and dermatologists and they all act confused, and call it dermatitis, which is a vague as hell diagnosis, like they can’t figure it out.

They’ve even tested me for sexually transmitted diseases and, when they saw my butt, asked me if I was into anal sex… which I’m not, and was really offended that they jump to sexually transmitted diseases when it’s clearly not.

It took me a ten minute internet search to find a picture of something that looks EXACTLY like my issue and all my doctors and dermatologist would do is tell me to change my soap, and hand me cortisone creams that never work, and push me out the door.  This is extremely troubling and frustrating because this is my prized possession and it feels like I can’t fully enjoy myself as it can be painful and irritated…

But so far the only thing that has given me ANY relief whatsoever is organic, cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil. I say that very specifically because all three of those factors are important.  The uses for coconut oil are endless. In fact there’s over a hundred uses for it, ones of which include psoriasis & eczema. And NO soap down there at all.

Also I recognize after shaving down there that’s when my psoriasis flares up the most so I make sure to always have a good new blade so the skin isn’t being pulled on or irritated, and use non-scented moisturizing soaps or shaving gels that are made organically.

Also, during the day I will bring non-scented baby wipes with me and when I use the bathroom will make sure if I’m hot or sweaty  to wipe the area and then pat it dry, because that’s another irritating factor!

Dealing with different doctors and dermatologists who have no idea what they’re doing for the past 12 years had made me bitter. Number one being my sex life can be difficult if it’s bad and plus it’s embarrassing.  It also has affected my confidence level as well.

But I’m lucky to have a loving boyfriend who has been great! But anyways, so far it’s been really helping. It’s comforting to know someone else has had the same issue as me, although I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy! I hope this helps you and anyone else that may see this! Good luck to all. 🙂

My favourite coconut oil brand

Reading Lilly’s letter reminded me that I have to get a blog post out there about coconut oil. It’s unbelievably good for psoriasis. It’s anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and a great moisturiser. The brand that I like to use, if I can get my hands on it, is Nutiva. It has a very light, delicious taste that makes it great for cooking with as well as lathering on your body like a loony monkey. I actually ingest or use coconut oil everyday, normally a tablespoon in my morning tea.

I'm just an average 28 year old living with psoriasis. Over the last decade, I've tried everything, from real snake poison to rubbing banana peels over my body. I've finally found an approach that's working for me, and I'm sharing it with all the flakers out there. But Psoriasis Blob is not about one man, it's a growing community of great, red people.

    I’m just wondering how to use the coconut oil on the vaginal area. I use it on my scalp, and it is soothing, but it’s messy. Do the other ladies wear a pad all the time? I can’t think of any other way to keep my clothes clean, and not soaked with oil. I’m going to try it with a pad. Could someone please let me know if there is a better way? Thank you!

    I have psoriasis for 25 years and I used to use steroid cream for years but they don’t work. Thank God i am psoriasis free for 4 months now. I use Aveeno lotion. It really works there is something in it that works but i first had to detox my body from the steroids of triacimalon and hydrocortisone. It got worse for about a week but then it started geting better. I had psoriasis all over my body and 4 months latter i feel good and psoriasis free, just thought i share this with y’all God bless yall in Jesus mighty name amen

    Hey Crusty! Thanks so much for putting this website together. I’ve been suffering/researching every cure under the sun/giving up after nothing seems to work/trying to ignore my psoriasis for years now, and reading through these pages and the comments below has really helped me feel less alone in this struggle. I was wondering – would you mind putting together a ‘My Current Daily Routine’ post? From combing through all the pages I see references to diet, green veg, gluten free (and rice free? which I’ve never heard of), alcohol, sunshine, various oils, soaps, supplements, turmeric, vitamin d3, etc etc etc. I realize that everyone is different and we all have our own triggers and salves, but it would be great to see a clear list of what has worked for you on a daily basis. Hope that’s not an imposition to ask, as I really do appreciate this blog and the work you’ve done to pull it together in such an accessible style! Thanks again!!

  6. I have had a very similar experience to Lilly over the years with my genital psoriasis! Gland she has found a way of helping to control the condition.
