Top 7 Ways to Treat Psoriasis at Home

Finding Psoriasis Treatments at Home



Psoriasis
is a complex, reoccurring autoimmune disorder characterized by red,
flaky patches on the skin. Even though there is no cure, many treatments
exist to ease the symptoms. Some aren't far away from your computer
screen.

Here are some pictures of psoriasis and seven simple treatments to help quiet its signs.

In the Medicine Cabinet



Dietary
supplements can help ease psoriasis symptoms from the inside. Fish oil,
vitamin D, milk thistle, and evening primrose oil have been successful
for some. It's important to only take supplements that do not interfere
with other pre-existing conditions or have harmful side effects. Fish
oil applied directly to the skin has also been known to work well for
some.

Moisture Everywhere



Use
a humidifier to keep the air in your home or office moist. It can
prevent dry skin before it starts. Sensitive-skin moisturizers are also
great at keeping your skin supple and from forming plaques.

No Dyes or Perfumes



Most
soaps and perfumes have dyes and fragrances in them. Sure, they can
make you smell great but they also can inflame psoriasis. Choose
products labeled as "sensitive skin" – these are made without the dyes
and perfumes that can irritate skin.

From the Kitchen, Part 1



Diet
can play a pivotal role in managing psoriasis. Eliminating red meat and
fatty foods have been effective for some. The National Psoriasis
Foundation lists soy, nuts, chocolate, and cranberries as a few
"functional foods" for treatment.

From the Kitchen, Part 2



As
healthy as olive oil is inside your body, it can have extra benefits
for the skin. Applying olive or vegetable oil to scales and patches of
psoriasis can lock moisture and nutrients in. Try massaging a few
tablespoons on your scalp to help loosen troublesome plaques during your
next shower.

In the Bathtub



Your
dermatologist will tell you hot water is your skin's enemy, but a
lukewarm bath with Epsom salt, mineral oil, milk, or olive oil can
soothe the itching and infiltrate scales and plaques. Moisturize
immediately after your bath for double benefits. Learn more how water
can help on the next page.

Hard Water



Soft
water is treated to only contain sodium, which isn't good for already
dry skin. While hard water might leave more stains on your shower walls,
it contains naturally-occurring minerals that some have found helps
their psoriasis. Water pumped in from your local treatment plant is
usually hard. If you're using a water softener in your home, turning it
off could benefit your skin.

No One Answer



Unfortunately,
there is no one single answer to stop psoriasis. What's worse is not
everything works for everyone. Using some of the tips shown here, as
well as using other treatment options, you can custom-tailor your daily
routine to keep problem itching and flaking to a minimum.
