Best Treatments For Psoriasis
Psoriasis is in fact more prevalent than you might think, but many people are not aware that they have it. You can do your own homework online or get a diagnosis by a dermatologist to confirm that you think you have is really Psoriasis. But what would be your next step to take if your diagnosis shows that you have Psoriasis and what are your options, and what could be the best treatments for Psoriasis?
First thing first
The first thing to do is to try to find out what caused your Psoriasis. Although there is no known cure for Psoriasis, if you can establish what brought on your eruptions you could be able to reduce the incidences. But it might not be that easy to find out the cause of the problem though.
There is not just one trigger of Psoriasis, in the same way that there are no best treatments for Psoriasis, there are several and they may be different from a person to another. Outbreaks have been proved to be caused by genetics, in this case it will be hard to control, but if the cause is stress, our eating habits, or the weather, it will be possible to somehow manage it to a certain point.
Now that you have been diagnosed
So now that you have your diagnosis, the first thing that you should do is to start keeping some sort of a diary of your daily activities. At first, it might feel like a time consuming operation, but in time you will be glad you did it. Putting down on a sheet of paper, or your computer, or cell phone, everything that you do and think might have a relation to your condition, as well as when the flareups come up, will give you a clear view of what your leading triggers may be. After a while, you will understand what your triggers are and can then take the appropriate actions to avoid them.
Best treatments for Psoriasis
Now, as soon as you have the feeling that an outbreak might be coming up, act quickly, but definitely not by scratching or picking until you see blood. A possible relief would be by spraying on a fragrance free moisturizer. Taking a mineral or olive oil bath might also be very soothing, on top of being very relaxing.
Prepare a baking powder mixture and lather it on the sensitive areas. Also a wet wrap will do the job. Rubbing Aloe Vera on the sore areas can also reduce the pain and irritation.
And never forget to lotion, lotion, and then lotion again. By keeping the skin moisturized will help restrain the outbreaks and help revive the dry and damaged areas. This could very well be one of your treatments for Psoriasis.
To sum it up:
- Make sure that it is really Psoriasis that you have
- Find what causes it and when it appears
- Research the best relief program and do not scratch, pick at it, which will worsen the condition
