Best Treatments For Psoriasis

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

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.

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:

  1. Make sure that it is really Psoriasis that you have
  2. Find what causes it and when it appears
  3. Research the best relief program and do not scratch, pick at it, which will worsen the condition

    I have heard there is no cure for psoriasis but when I was in my early 20s, I had an outbreak at the base of my skull and I used tar shampoo on it. It completely cleared up and has not come back still twelve years later. It did seem to get worse when I picked at it, so I think leaving it be is a key factor like you mentioned.

      Thanks for sharing your personal experience with Psoriasis Katie. That is correct, there is no cure for Psoriasis, we can only find a certain degree of relief. You are one of the lucky ones who can cope with it. It maybe that you are applying positive thinking, knowingly or not, good for you, keep doing what you are doing, but by all means, do not pick at it. Read some of the natural treatments that you can administer yourself at home that will also help.

      I wish you a very healthy life.

    I have a cousin with this condition and she is really frustrated by it. For the longest time she didn’t even know what she had but she eventually got diagnosed with psoriasis by a doctor. I will suggest to her that she keep track of when she has outbreaks or eruptions because I know she does not do that. Maybe then she can at least determine what may be causing her flareups. Thanks for the advice!

    Luckily I have never had psoriasis (or been diagnosed at least) but I feel this could come in handy if I ever do catch it somehow. I do think it is important to see a doctor if you think you might have it. I also think it is a good idea to keep track of habits which might lead to psoriasis and to try and change things up a bit to avoid it. I also heard that cold showers are good for relieving psoriasis as well.

      Lucky you Arie, you probably are one of the clever people who maintain a healthy lifestyle, which is basically a fix-it-all program already. Taking cold showers can also help (are you also doing that?), but it is not always pleasant and would help in very mild cases, so if by any chance one day you notice a strange skin disorder on your body (usually scalp, back of knees, elbows, etc..) start with a cold shower and have it checked by a doctor. Then if you decide to go the natural way, find a program that will suit you best.

      Thanks for visiting and sharing, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to post them here.

    I live a very healthy lifestyle. I eat well, exercise, meditate, and practice yoga… But about 3 months ago I broke out in a rash on my legs and arms. At first I thought it was poison ivy or oak because that’s what it looks like. (small bumps that itch like crazy). I’ve still been diagnosed by a doctor, but my husband thinks it may be psoriasis. I’m not so sure, but nevertheless, i’m treating it like it is. I’ve found that ozonated jojoba oil seems to be improving it. Thanks for your post. It helped.

    I had suffered from psoriasis and it was a really difficult time for me. When I had consulted a doctor he had confirmed that it is psoriasis and told me that I need to have a couple of supplements every day.
    Psoriasis can be really difficult to trace and treat, often it can get confused with other similar skin disorder.

      Thanks for your comment and for sharing your condition with us Shrey. I hope that the supplements you are taking help, it should if your Psoriasis is very mild, it will in fact help for any other skin disorders, but in cases of severe attacks of Psoriasis, a more drastic approach would be required. Keep a close eye on it act accordingly.

      Unfortunately, Psoriasis cannot be treated completely, but you can find a near 100% relief with the right treatment.

      I wish you the very best of health.

  • Hi John,

    Over the years I have had numerous clients who have suffered from psoriasis and I know someone personally who has this condition. Being someone who usually seeks out holistic treatment for most anything, I am not sure why it would not have dawned on me earlier to consider holistic means of treatment for these folks as an option. I am surely going to tell them about your site and pass on suggestions I have read here. I think it will definitely be worth it for them to investigating!

    For sufferers of psoriasis, it is such a traumatic condition. Apart from the eruptions and the itching, many patients find the look of the skin problems upset them as much as the condition itself.
    I have a neighbour that was continually in shorts and short sleeved shirts and upon looking more closely, I could see he had many sores on his arms and legs.
    It was obvious that the sores were so troublesome that he didn’t want them covered and would rather put up with being cold.
    He told me he was on a serious cancer type drug because of the type of psoriasis he had. I gave him some of my magnesium chloride solution knowing it does help with skin conditions.
    I though nothing of it until he came around a week or so later asking if he could have some more. His sores were visibly reduced and he said he was feeling so much better in himself. He is now taking it regularly. It may not help everyone but may be another remedy to include in your arsenal against this unpleasant condition.

      Thanks very much for sharing your and your neighbour’s experience Ches. A few years back, when I lived in Florida, I had an eruption of Psoriasis right behind both my knees. As you might know, short pants is the dress code for Florida, and at that time it was the bermuda type of shorts that reached right at knee level. I was so sore by the rubbing of my shorts on the skin that it bled, and imaging with the sweat! 

      That was before I discovered the benefits of some very efficient remedies.

      I am glad that you could help your neighbour, as you probably know, each one of us Psoriasis sufferers can react to a different remedy.

      I wish you a very happy and healthy life.
