5 reasons for Psoriasis being at ease with Homoeopathic Treatment

Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin disorder of the skin. The skin cells in psoriasis grow too quickly. The body does not shed these excess skin cells as is the case when one has healthy skin. When this happens excess cells accumulate on the surface of the skin, forming lesions. This skin disease is not contagious though. It presents as thickened silvery white scaling and reddening of patches of the skin.

5 Self Care Tips

To prevent the triggering of psoriasis a good self care regime goes hand in hand with its treatment.

Keep your skin moist. Use a natural moisturizer which heals and soothes the skin. This should be an important part of one’s self care for psoriasis. Dry skin makes psoriasis itchiness worse than it needs to be. Avoid hand sanitizers. They can have a drying effect.

Never scrub you’re your skin when you bathe. Friction is a triggering factor for psoriasis. A new patch can appear when psoriasis is in its active phase. So never use a luffa or scrubber when you bathe.

The ultra-violet light in sunlight is a proven treatment for psoriasis, but sunburns can make psoriasis worse. Use a sunscreen with SPF 30 to prevent sunburn damage.

Shampoo gently. Rubbing a shampoo into the scalp may seem best, but it’s not. Rubbing, scrubbing, and scratching your scalp tend to make scalp psoriasis worse.

Remove scale with care. To treat scalp psoriasis, you need to loosen and remove the scale on your scalp. You must do this gently. Picking can cause psoriasis to flare.
