6 Ways To Treat Psoriasis At Home


Life with Psoriasis is a challenge and very uncomfortable. Here are 6 Home Remedies to treat/manage psoriasis

1. Studies have found that Fish Oil, Vitamin D, Milk Thistle and Evening Primrose oil help when outbreaks occur.  Make sure you check with your doctor before trying this to make sure it doesn't negatively impact whatever treatment you are on.

2. Buy a Humidifier.  Where ever you spend the most time (work/home) try and buy a humidifier to keep the air around you moist.  Moisture is key to keeping your skin from breaking out.

3. What Soap Do You Use? You want to make sure that the soap you use is not too strong.  Make sure you buy soap that is for sensitive skin and contains no dye or perfume as this may aggravate your skin.

4. Diet is Key.  What you eat can directly impact your psoriasis.  Try and cut out red meat and fatty foods from your diet.  Some foods that are listed as "functional foods" are soy, nuts, chocolate and cranberries

5. Psoriasis on Scalp.  A simple trick to do before showering is to massage some olive oil on your scalp.  This will help loosen plaques and add moisture.

6. IT ITCHES!  A luke warm bath with epsom salk, mineral oil, milk or olive oil can help out when you are itching.
