Natural remedies for psoriasis during pregnancy
Moisturize, moisturize, and then moisturize again, as simple as that. It is quick and easy to perform, plus it only requires a couple of minutes two to three times a day. When the skin is dry and scaly, it can split and bruises will appear. Then it is essential to keep the skin moisturized on the outside as well as in the inside.
For the outside of the body, apply a lotion that doesn’t contain any fragrance and for the inside drink a lot of water all through the day. The more water you will drink during the day the better your skin will benefit.
If it looks like your skin becomes too dry, simply have a bath or a shower. Alternatively, you can soak the dry areas of the skin to help them peel off naturally and without injuring the skin. Use a smooth soap that won’t inflame the skin or provoke undue dehydration.
Avoid taking too many long baths; as this can take off valuable oils from your skin, oils that are essential to preserve your skin from external agents. Immediately apply a lotion after bathing to lock in the moistness. Always bathe or shower in lukewarm water because warm or hot water will cause your skin to become itchy and will only cause additional issues.
There is more that you can do…
We can recommend other natural remedies for Psoriasis during pregnancy that can be performed at home is to apply wet wraps. This process must be applied right after the bath or shower or at night before going to bed. After your bath or shower, moisturize the body as you would normally do to lock in the moisture.
Use some elastic bandages, or whatever you have available, and immerse them in lukewarm water. Wrap the bandages around the damaged areas such as the elbows, knees, or thighs.
The damp wraps will keep the injured zones from flaring up or itching and will maintain the damaged places from getting rough or septic.
There are many more actions that you can perform while spending very little money, if any. A simple Google search or simply talking to your doctor will give you many other solutions.

The influence of psoriasis on pregnancy
Over time I have received many questions from readers who are pregnant or intending of becoming pregnant and are worried about their pregnancy and psoriasis.
So, I have contacted several experts and here are their answers to those questions:
Psoriasis and fertility
Psoriasis does not pose a risk of infertility. A person with psoriasis is just as fertile as another. On the other hand, in someone with psoriasis in the genital areas, this disease can be an embarrassment, sometimes very important, to sexual relations. And of course, if a couple avoids sex for a while because of genital psoriasis (female or male), meanwhile, getting pregnant is not possible.
Can I continue my treatment for psoriasis if I am pregnant?
Not necessarily. When you have psoriasis, it is good to consult a doctor before starting a pregnancy to see what treatment is possible and what treatment should be stopped. Some general or local medications can reach the child, so it is absolutely necessary to have medical advice to make the treatment safe for the unborn child.
Does pregnancy aggravate psoriasis?
It depends on the person. In about one third of cases, psoriasis improves during pregnancy. This would probably be due to changes in hormones during pregnancy that will vary immunity and may have an anti-inflammatory effect.
And in one in five cases, women report worsening psoriasis. Others see no particular change.
Will the child have psoriasis if one of the parents has it?
Not necessarily ! Psoriasis has a genetic component, but that does not mean that with an affected parent, the child will necessarily have it. Only 12% of children with a parent with psoriasis are also affected, which is only one risk out of 8. And if both parents are affected, the risk increases to 50%: one in two children in this case has psoriasis.
If I have psoriasis during pregnancy, will the child suffer?
No, the child develops just as normally as in a woman with no psoriasis.
Is breastfeeding possible when you have psoriasis?
Yes but be careful. Medications (oral or applicable on the skin) can pass into the milk. It is therefore very important to ask your doctor’s opinion so that the psoriasis treatment is adapted and compatible with breastfeeding.

Cure Psoriasis Holistically Copyright © 2017 to date.
Your article was very informative providing very simple methods to remedy Psoriasis. I appreciate that it’s not necessary to spend a lot of money to treat psoriasis unlike many ads that are constantly reminding you what prescriptions to use to treat it. My husband use to have psoriasis and treated it by using prescriptions under a doctor’s care.
By moisturizing your body on the outside to keep it from dry or scaly skin makes sense as well as drinking lots of water to help with the hydration benefiting your skin from the inside.
My husband is no longer suffering from psoriasis today but these are good points to keep in mind and refereance back to.
Thank you for these tips.
I am glad that your husband is experiencing relief from his Psoriasis, which proves that even the most simple things can help, it is just a matter of trying them, as each one of us will not react to the same treatment in the same way, but what your husband has discovered works on just about anybody with Psoriasis. You might want to encourage him to have a look at more complete and effective natural remedies I have tested myself: http://curepsoriasisholistical…
Thanks very much for your comments and I wish you and your husband a very healthy life.
Good tips for natural remedies for psoriasis, I believe natural remedies are your best strategy before using prescription drugs when possible anytime.
Psoriasis is a skin problem for many people, most people do not drink enough water. I wonder how the chemicals in our food and water affects this health problem, maybe this is something you can share in another article?
Thanks for visiting my blog Jeffrey. As you say, water is part of most diets to combat Psoriasis, in fact I have written a little bit about it in a previous article: http://curepsoriasisholistical… and I intend to write more about drinking water in the near future (thanks for the tip), as there are so many basic things we can do to help.
I wish you the very best of health.
Great article, I was absorbed by the reading!
I know two people who suffer from psoriasis since their young age. It comes and goes away, but it never disappears forever. I’ve asked them if there is a way to get rid of the Psoriasis completely. Their answers were, negative. They also told me that it comes from stress most of the time. They even made a trip to Israel to the Dead Sea to put mud on their skins. It worked great, but the Psoriasis problem came back after a while.
I will show them this article. I am sure they will find it extremely useful!
Thank you for this excellent post!
Thanks for your comment Daniella. You are quite right, Psoriasis cannot be cured and go away forever. The purpose of this blog is to show people that there are many, many ways we can get a relief from the annoying and sometimes even painful itchiness, avoiding the side effects of the medications we are prescribed and at the same time saving some money on very expensive remedies, like going to the Dead Sea for example, to end up with the same results as with a good natural program.
Thanks for sharing the article with your two acquaintances.
I wish you a very healthy time ahead.
I found the article quite informative. It seems like water is one of the most important aspects need for the body to function. Had read a article that we are made up of about 90% water. So I would think hydration is important in all aspects of how and what we do. Especially during the Summer months.
Thanks for your visit and comment Tim. You are quite right, it is very important to keep hydrated, especially during the summer months, or if leaving indoors with an air conditioning system going on, summer or winter alike. Most people do not feel thirsty and can become ill before realising that they are dehydrated. This often happens among older folks. So it is very important to keep thinking about drinking.
That’s right, the body is made of an incredible amount of water, but I think that the percentage you are putting forward is rather high. This is what I know and read from various source:
“The amount of water in the human body ranges from 50-75%. The average adult human body is 50-65% water, averaging around 57-60%. The percentage of water in infants is much higher, typically around 75-78% water, dropping to 65% by one year of age.”
I look forward to seeing you around Tim, and if you have any questions, please do ask them here, so that we can all benefit from the answers.
