What We Suggest When Psoriasis Crushes Quality of Life
Basic Causes of Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition. It is understood that the immune system and family history can play roles in its development. The immune system is somehow triggered, which causes a series of events, including inflammation and acceleration of skin cell growth. Instead of falling off (shedding), the cells pile up on the surface of the skin forming psoriatic plaques, patches of thick, red skin covered with silvery scales.
There are many kinds of psoriasis. The most common is Plaque Psoriasis. Other common types are Scalp Psoriasis and Nail Psoriasis. While there is no known cure for psoriasis, there are remedies that can help reduce and/or alleviate the condition. For many people psoriasis is a social stigma that causes pain, itching and emotional pain as well (also read our blog article, “What We Suggest When Dry Skin Causes Your Confidence to Flake Out”).
Suggested Home Remedies from Ultra Essence
First soak the affected area for at least 20 minutes in warm (not hot) water. Then gently rub skin with a clean wash cloth; not too hard as the skin underneath is very raw. When your pores are still open lightly pat (not rub) your skin dry and then immediately apply Ultra Balm to the affected area. Ultra Balm penetrates deep into the skin, restoring the skins proper acid covering so that the skin returns to the PH level necessary to keep the skin hydrated, moist and protected from germs and infections. Follow your Ultra Balm application with a cold compress as this will close the top layer of the skin and allow the balm to do its work. You should follow up during the day with a small amount of Ultra Balm to any area that feels very itchy or is in pain. DO NOT rub the area every day. Wait a day in between to allow the affected area(s) to heal.
If you follow the above suggested home remedy, a change is typically noticeable within days or even hours, and you will immediately be much more comfortable.
