Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease which needs genetic, immunological and environmental factors. Stress, certain drugs and infections are one of the environmental factors which can trigger psoriasis.
Knowing your triggers might mean you can avoid a flare-up of psoriasis. When a flare-up strikes, write down when it occurred and include information about what was happening at the time that may have triggered the psoriasis. Keep in mind that psoriasis may flare after even 10 to 14 days.
Psoriasis is a lifelong condition, unfortunately, but once psoriasis remedies are used on the skin, it can cause the psoriasis to go into remission. The goal is to heal the skin rash free and make remissions as long as possible. When psoriasis is in remission, the lesions are no longer visible and symptoms are absent. Remission can last months or even years without a flare-up.
If you suspect you have psoriasis symptoms, then don´t panic and go to see your doctor as soon as possible. It is important to start treating the first signs now, not to wait until the entire skin has a rash.
There is a wide range of creams and lubricants. Using them correctly will give good results with few side effects.
In most cases sun is very good for psoriasis. You may also consider going to UVB light therapy and use natural remedies to fight psoriasis.
As sun exposure is associated with skin aging and skin cancer, it is much safer to use light therapy in the clinics where it is controlled by specialists.
Unlike UVA, UVB radiation does not penetrate into deep layers of the skin and therefore does not damage skin and cause complications.
UVB phototherapy is a very good psoriasis treatment, especially for long-term control of psoriasis. I dare to suggest that because it made my skin clear. Whenever I feel that my skin is starting to itch, I go to get the UVB therapy and the itching stops right away. That is how I keep my psoriasis in remission.
Whatever treatment is used You should always be using skin moisturisers. Natural creams are a good alternative when it comes to psoriasis treatment. Psoriasis is so unpredictable condition, that it is an elusive target for even the strongest modern medications. This disease has led many people to develop their personal natural remedies to fight it rather than experiment with any other potentially harmful drugs.
I have good experiences with emu oil, aloe vera and Dead Sea products.
Research has shown that emu oil has the ability to penetrate deep into the inner layers of skin. It doesn’t contain any harmful hormones or antibiotics and provides the necessary fats that are required for normal skin cells function.
Emu oil can also be used internally which helps reduce skin inflammation and psoriasis symptoms from the inside out.
Aloe Vera has been used since ancient times to treat and cure a variety of skin conditions, including psoriasis. Aloe vera creams and lotions are a natural choice for treating psoriasis.
To get long-term relief it is necessary not to treat only the symptoms on your skin, but also treat psoriasis within and support your immune system. For instance, I have tried taking aloe vera juice and emu oil capsules. Both worked well for me.
There have been many people claiming almost miraculous improvements with psoriasis as a result of swimming in the Dead Sea or using Dead Sea products. Although Dead Sea salts cannot cure psoriasis completely it can definitely help reduce symptoms and make psoriasis barely detectable. You can choose to utilize this ingredient through creams, or muds or bath products.
Having psoriasis might mean that your body feels you are running somewhere too fast and you need to make changes in your life. Think about it. Scientific studies confirm that stress can worsen psoriasis and increase itching. Some people can even trace their first outbreak to a particularly stressful event.
If you stay relaxed and learn about this disease, to avoid common psoriasis causes, You can take control of it. If You feel that the treatment you are using, does not work, use another one until you find something that works
There are many healthy ways to relieve stress, for instance meditation, exercise, doing something you enjoy, listening music or joining a support group.
Some nutritionists and health care providers recommend eating more of some foods and less of others to reduce the inflammation associated with psoriasis.
It is important to drink lots of water because that helps hydrate the skin and makes it less prone to irritation. Drink at least 2 litres a day.
If You follow Your psoriasis treatment plan and have a healthy lifestyle, then everything can only go better. Psoriasis lesions are just a temporary condition that go away if You live Your life and don´t worry.
Stressing is the only thing you can do wrong. Psoriatic, I have realized that in the end it is as easy or as hard as you take it.
