What is the best treatment for psoriasis? Either home remedies or medical not picky.?

Tina of Lymphland.com
To totally cure it you can get a referral to someone who does ultraviolet ray therapy. There are special doctors who do this, it's very similiar to a tanning booth, you undress so the rays hit you, and you wear special goggles. My father has it severely and he goes maybe 2-3 times for outbreaks, maybe every 2-3 years.

Im currently using a topical. But I have been laying out in the sun since its been so nice outside and the combination of the two seem to be speeding up the healing fast.

Good Luck

Specialist dermatologists generally treat psoriasis in steps based on the severity of the disease, size of the areas involved, type of psoriasis, and the patient's response to initial treatments. This is sometimes called the "1-2-3" approach. In step 1, medicines are applied to the skin (topical treatment). Step 2 uses ultraviolet light treatments (phototherapy). Step 3 involves taking medicines by mouth or injection that treat the whole immune system (called systemic therapy).

Over time, affected skin can become resistant to treatment, especially when topical Corticosteroids are used. Also, a treatment that works very well in one person may have little effect in another. Thus, doctors often use a trial-and-error approach to find a treatment that works, and they may switch treatments periodically (for example, every 12 to 24 months) if a treatment does not work or if adverse reactions occur.

Topical treatment
Treatments applied directly to the skin may improve its condition. Doctors find that some patients respond well to ointment or cream forms of Corticosteroids, vitamin D3, retinoids, Coal Tar, or Anthralin. Bath solutions and moisturizers may be soothing, but they are seldom strong enough to improve the condition of the skin. However they help with the penetration of additonal stronger remedies and so maximise the effectiveness of combination therapy. In additon steroids and calcipotriol may cause an initial burning sensation if applied to dry Skin.

When applied regularly over a long period, moisturizers have a soothing effect. Preparations that are thick and greasy (ointments) usually work best because they seal water in the skin, reducing scaling and itching.

Bath solutions
People with psoriasis may find that adding oil when bathing, then applying a moisturizer, soothes their skin. Also, individuals can remove scales and reduce itching by soaking for 15 minutes in water containing a Coal Tar solution, oiled oatmeal, Epsom salts, or Dead Sea salts.

Light therapy
Natural ultraviolet light from the sun and controlled delivery of artificial ultraviolet light are used in treating psoriasis.

Much of sunlight is composed of bands of different wavelengths of ultraviolet (UV) light. When absorbed into the skin, UV light suppresses the process leading to disease, causing activated T cells in the skin to die. This process reduces inflammation and slows the turnover of skin cells that causes scaling. Daily, short, nonburning exposure to sunlight clears or improves psoriasis in many people. Therefore, exposing affected skin to sunlight is one initial treatment for the disease.

These medications are not indicated in routine treatment of psoriasis. However, antibiotics may be employed when an infection, such as that caused by the bacteria Streptococcus, triggers an outbreak of psoriasis, as in certain cases of guttate psoriasis.

Try Tea Tree Oil, Renew Lotion, and good vitamin supplements.

I use T-Sal for my scalp and I use dial as body wash and Cytephil (and a lot of it) as body Lotion. You need to keep your body moisturized I think that's the key to help in future break outs.

oatmeal lotion

I did try Dovonex, it didn't work, next I did try DOVOBET, doesn't cure it, but keeps it under control.

See a doctor.

I suggest that swimming. the water seems to help the itcha and the looks. Please use caution with medications that contain hormones, they cause cancer. Please read labels on the creams that may be prescribed.

Tea is lightly. To clean and ask that, use Berts Bees for the tomato and Celery bar and use with cauttion as you need you further with an expert. You meed to crack down somehow. It's usually me every answer. Until every is wrote and you didn't agree. That's all of me me since single manipulation.

Sea Salt

my friend swears by natural yoghurt but myself personally would try sea water.go to seaside and bathe for 5 mins,this has worked great for my son

My midpt. in life.
eucerin creme

See you doctor. Each person is different.


To be honest there is nothing on the market or home remedies that will cure psoriasis as I am sure you know. What works well for one person may not work for another as I am also sure you know. Talk with your dermatologist as he/she will be abreast of the latest treatments available and which one is best suited for you. That being said, I have had severe psoriasis for 25 years and the only thing that works for me is weekly Methotrexate injections. I have tried at least 100 home remedies and every new topical medication to come down the pike with not even a glimmer of relief. Not only are they inadequate but expensive so I gave up on them in favor of Vaseline to help the dryness.

There are so many forms and cases, I would suggest getting medical advice on that. Doctors do have ways and means of controlling, or curing such things.

The treatments available only lesson the symptoms, there is no permanent treatment.....you can buy Eucerin cream(which is a really thick lotion), you can buy cortaid, you can buy Selson Blue (the type for psoriasis) and apply it after a shower and wash it off that night....the doctor can prescribe some hydrocortosone(sp) cream. You can go to a tanning salon or tan naturally, it will help a lot!

I have suffered for twenty years and have moderate to severe psoriasis. I am finishing up a raptiva course and am beginning to regress. raptiva worked real well as did Dexamethasone and UBV light....not tanning booths.

A few posters mentioned "triggers" Mine was strep throat. The poster who mentioned toxins in the colon has some credibility. I do believe toxins flare mine up but disagree with the lowered immune system.

In many cases, lowering the immune system clears psoriasis up. Poopiest side effects from mine....shingles, sinus infections, lots of coughing not to mention other minor ailments.

I reccomend topicals only in mild cases. raptiva costs 300 dollars a week. UVB 75 dollars a visit and the dex....well pricewise it was not too costly but the side effects? I won't even go there.

Rock on and...save the flakes for breakfast cereal sprinkles!

Sea Salt, it works great. You think it will make it worse because it stings a bit but it really heals. Get the good grainy kind with oil mixture.

Talk to your doctor...there are prescription treatments available, and some OTC treatments.

I had patches (starting at the top), on my face, back, breasts, arms, elbows, ephsoitomy scar (where the baby came out and they had to cut), legs, knees and feet. A friend talked me into going to Water Mania in Kissimmee, FL. Within 2 weeks, every patch and spot was gone. It been 4 years and I have had only three spots. One on my belly and a spot inside each of my ears.

Jade Orchid
I use nutrigena t-gel on mine along with sulfur Sulfacetamide mixed with Vitamin E oil. I also tan 3 times a week instead of the expensive UV therapy.

My son has it and we stopped giving him juice and it totally went away. I also tried Psoriasil by Home Health and it did help also.

My neighbor tried some light treatment where light beams were used. Not very sure , u can inquire about it to a dermatologist but it has worked and she is got rid of psoriasis now to a large extent

Have a look to official (US goverment) information from the National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Diseases


Look specifically at the section "How Is Psoriasis Treated?"

apply pure Tea Tree Oil a few times a day. This works great for many skin conditions, and can be mixed into shampoo for treating the scalp.

Get it cheap on eBay at Nature's Inventory store. It'll cost you 4 times as much at a drug store.

i am a fan of Cortisone 10 it has worked wonders for me and its cheap

a good diet with slow carbs

In God We Trust
Read the books that Dr. Cassim Ingram authors. He has written several alternative medical ways to deal with problems. They are health based through herbs, etc. Always ask your doctor if it is alright to take these herbs. I say this because you may have prescribed medications that could counteract against good dermatological progress. Ask God to always direct you over all mortal intervention. This way you will maintain a positive result. Read Psalm 35 to (Plead My Cause). God has truly helped me with many problems especially my skin that no longer bleeds because God showed me the right way to go. Then read Psalm 4 for (Safety and Protection) against the unknowns in this world. Remember this, "If God be for us, who can be against us?" - Romans 8:31. Peace and God Bless

Ginger Sling
Absolutely no dairy products for 30 days and see a miracle. (You can substitute with Soy for milk and cheeses).

my wife uses nutragena t-gel shampoo for hers and it works very well.
