Treatments For Psoriasis
Psoriasis is irreversible, but there are quick treatments and cures to the disease that you can do by yourself and the help of family members even at home. There is a way to get rid of the discomforts brought about by the disease, and with a little more teamwork from the people who support you, you’ll live a better, healthier life even with psoriasis. Here are some of the easiest quick fixes that you can do on your own. Take a look at some of these curing tips for psoriasis, but don’t forget to continue consulting your doctor for good measure.
First of all, it’s best if you consume more foods that are rich in vitamin E. This vitamin hastens the healing of the scaly red patches on the skin. There are people who bathe in warm water with Epsom salts or oatmeal. Scrub as gentle as you can while you’re soaking in the bath though, you don’t want to leave your skin raw and stingy. Oatmeal and Epsom salts help to exfoliate the skin faster while keeping it soft and moisturized. Cabbage leaves are great for making natural masks for the skin. Blanching the cabbage in warm water and patting them dry with a towel helps to wash away chemicals that clung to the vegetable before you use it.
Soften the leaves by passing a rolling pin over them. Remove the veins after the leaves are softened and pat them on top of your skin especially on the elbows and knees. Cabbage and other vegetables are rich in antioxidants which help regenerate skin cells and speed up healing. Cabbage is the best because you can find it anywhere, it’s always in season, and it’s teaming with nutrients and antioxidants. Don’t forget slathering lotion or petroleum jelly on the scaly patched skin to promote relief.
