10 Powerful Remedies For Psoriasis

ps1

Psoriasis is a painful skin condition that causes itchiness, redness, and hypersensitivity. The exact cause of psoriasis is not known, but it seems to be genetic; a third of people with psoriasis have at least one other family member with the condition. Similar to respiratory allergies, psoriasis is an overreaction of the immune system; in this case, the reaction manifests as inflammation and flaking of skin.  Besides taking medications, there are a number of home remedies to treat and prevent psoriasis.

1. Epsom salts

Epsom salts are really good at calming itchy skin.  Their gentle abrasive abrasion removes loose scales from the skin.  Add a quarter cup to a warm bath and soak for at least fifteen minutes.  You can follow up with a light pumice stone sanding of the skin, and some vitamin E moisturizer. Dead sea salts also work very well, but are a little more expensive.

2. Oatmeal

Oats both draw out toxins and soothe red, itchy skin.  You can add a cup of oats to a warm bath for a fast remedy (you can actually feel the oats working), or apply an oatmeal poultice to a psoriasis patch.
