Any suggestions for getting some sleep when you have psoriasis?

Anyone out there have any suggestions for getting some much-needed rest when you have psoriasis? Chamomile tea? Guided meditation? Sheep counting?

  1. On really bad nights: Vipassana meditation, anti-histamines, Vicks vaporub (or another lotion with menthol) and try not to squirm too much (staying still seems to keep the itching down). During really bad flares I would go to bed extra early in the hopes I'd cobble together enough hours to be functional the next day!
