Treatment For Psoriasis – How Can We Get Rid of Psoriasis ?
There are many Psoriasis treatments to get rid of, or alleviate the effects of psoriasis, however I am going to show you some natural remedies too to help relieve the continuous itching of psoriasis.
Aloe Vera. Apply the gel from the Aloe plant up to three times a day, research has shown that it can help reduce the redness and scaling associated with psoriasis. Creams containing 0.5% aloe are recommended. There is no evidence of any benefit being shown from taking aloe in tablet form, and has been known to be dangerous, therefore not recommended.
Apple Cider Vinegar. There are so many good things associated with ACV that it’s definitely worth a mention here. Apple cider vinegar, organic is available in many places, including Amazon. Apply ACV diluted 1/1 with water to the affected area several times a week. NOTE: if you have any open wounds, vinegar will irritate the skin, if this is the case, do not use this natural treatment.
Tea Tree Oil. Tea tree oil is believed to have antiseptic qualities when applied to the skin. Some people are using tea tree oil shampoos to relieve their scalp psoriasis, however there is no proven medical evidence to support the effectiveness of tea tree oil
Dermasis. Although not a natural remedy, Dermasis has been effective in helping psoriasis sufferers. Dermasis contains FDA approved ingredients and can go some way to creating relief for sufferers. This treatment can soothe the itching, redness and scaling of psoriasis
