Psoriasis is a one of the most common skin disorders that speeds up the life cycle of skin cells. In this condition, skin cells build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells give rise to scales and red patches that are generally very itchy and at times painful as well. This disorder usually affects the knees, elbows, and scalp. It can also occur on the torso, palms, and soles of the feet.
Psoriasis is a chronic disease that mostly comes and goes. There is not such cure for psoriasis, although you can manage symptoms by developing a lifestyle plan. Get rid of stress and reduce symptoms is very important to help manage psoriasis.
Here are some important things that can you to overcome psoriasis symptoms…
- Eat a Balanced, Nutritious Diet
One of the very important and first steps towards managing chronic psoriasis is to develop a healthy, balanced eating plan. For this you can take help of your dermatologist. A healthy and balanced diet can strengthen the immune system, which can guard the body against infections that might worsen your skin condition. Moreover, you should consult your doctor before adding any dietary supplements such as ester C or fish oils, into your diet for easing psoriasis symptoms.
- Observe Triggers
Many health experts suggest that patients should keep a journal to track their psoriasis eruptions and triggers. For example, there are certain things that might spur a psoriasis occurrence like weather, foods, times of stress and medications. As soon as you recognize your worst triggers, you can definitely do your part to reduce or evade them totally in the future.
- Use Petroleum Jelly
Although petroleum jelly generally works for some psoriasis patients and not for others, but many studies claim that properly moisturizing skin with it has shown very positive results for minimizing the itchy and dry discomfort of psoriasis inflammation and scaling. Applying a thick coating of petroleum jelly (without any harsh chemicals or perfumes) directly after taking a short warm bath or shower can help enclose skin’s moisture.
- Skin Treatments At Home
Though Psoriasis patients are always advised to avoid long, hot baths, but shorter, lukewarm oatmeal soaks can help relieve itch and slough off scaly, flakey skin. Many Dermatologists recommend soaking in a warm bath infused with Epsom salts (or Dead Sea salts) and fragrance-free bath oils, to get rid of scales, dryness, and itch.
- Avoid Scratching
Psoriasis generally causes inflammation, large flaky patches, and red patches, which are difficult not to scratch. However, as damaging skin can lead to infection, try to refrain scratching. Those who are prone to itching and infuriating trouble areas, need to be proactive by keeping their nails short and resisting the urge to scratch at night by sleeping with gloved hands.
- Don’t Consume Alcohol
Alcohol is one of the most common triggers for psoriasis patients. Even, a study conducted by Harvard Medical School and Brigham Women’s Hospital found that those who consumed Alcohol just for two to 3 times throughout a week experienced worsened psoriasis symptoms, interrupted periods of reduction, and slow response to the psoriasis treatments.
- Quit Smoking
According to a research published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, people who smoke have double the risk of developing psoriasis. Smoking intensifies the severity, reduces remission time, and lowers the effectiveness of treatment in current psoriasis patients.
- Get Rid of Stress
Those who suffer with chronic psoriasis are generally prone to depression, anxiety, lowered self-esteem, and even suicidal thoughts as well if they lose control over their condition. This is the reason that many doctors recommend psoriasis patients to see a counsellor or join a support group with other psoriasis patients, as it can help to relieve some stress and manage your condition.
