Lucy Fairman, sales manager, Peta UK Ltd Hair product cleared up my psoriasis
I have recently started taking some tablets to improve a hair condition. So far the hair has not improved, but my psoriasis has completely disappeared! I had a circle of psoriasis the size of a 50p coin just below my knee for six years. Within a month of taking the tablets – Hair Vit by Health Aid – it had gone. I am guessing it is a side-effect of the tablets. In case you are wondering I can confirm I have nothing to do with the manufacture or distribution of the tablets.
Mr M Cummings, Hove, East Sussex Alternatives to heavy towels
If, like me, you find a bath towel too heavy and awkward to handle after a bath or shower, why not use a dry face flannel to absorb most of the water and then finish off with a smaller towel? It makes such a difference (and no heavy wet towels in the laundry either!)

Re. difficulties on towel drying after bath/shower (
Arthritis Today Summer 2014), as I cannot bend I use a micro-fibre radiator brush (available from Lakeland) to dry my legs from a sitting position and I also use micro-fibre mittens on each hand to avoid heavy towels. They are marketed for use for quick hair drying and are advertised in various magazines.
