There is currently no permanent cure for psoriasis but there are a number of psoriasis treatments which are effective at reducing it's symptoms. These treatments vary from using simple moisturisers to subjecting the effected areas of your skin to UVB light.
All of the treatment listed here work to some degree but there is no best treatment for all psoriasis sufferers. The one one that will work best for you will depend on the type of psoriasis you have, it's location and it's severity. As with most medical issues it is best to seek advice from your doctor.
Top of the list because the use of moisturisers are a must for all psoriasis suffers. Regardless of the type, severity or location of your psoriasis a good moisturiser will help reduce the dryness, scaling and cracking of the skin. If you psoriasis is mild a moisturiser may be all that is needed.
The best type of moisturiser for the treatment of psoriasis is one that will lock in the skin moisture most effectively. Generally oils do this better than creams which in turn do this better than lotions.
Though using moisturisers can be sufficient for mild sufferers most will need something a little more specific to treating the psoriasis plaques (scaly skin rashes). For this most choose to use a cold tar psoriasis treatment:
Coal Tar Treatments
Coal tar have been used for over a hundred years as a treatment for skin conditions. Although scientists are not 100% sure how it works it is thought to inhibit the replication of skin cells. So when it is applied to an area of your skin which is effected by psoriasis plaques it will slow down the cell production and so reduce the spread and thickening of the rash.
As well as having this unique effect on cell division, coal tar is also a anti-inflammatory and antiseptic. In fact there are so many compounds and ingredients in coal tar it is unlikely that we will ever understand it's effect completely but it has been used for so long that it's use as a psoriasis treatment is known to be completely safe.
There are many coal tart treatments available but the most popular brand by far is Exorex. Express Chemist generally have the best deals online
These creams can be used for a short time only. They are often prescribed by doctors for a limited period to treat inflammation on the face or scalp. The problem with this type of psoriasis treatment is that once you stop using it the inflammation usually returns.
Exposure to UVB light can often help reduce large areas of inflammation. Ultraviolet UVB light has been used since the 1920's to treat widespread psoriasis, In 1981 scientists discovered the precise wavelength required. Treatment that uses the full UVB range of wavelengths (280-320nm) is known as broadband UVB (BBUVB) whereas narrowband UVB (NBUVB) uses this more precise range of wavelengths (300-313nm). Many find that exposure to natural sunlight helps.
This type of treatment is usually used at specialist dermatology centres though broadband and narrowband lamp are available at Amazon for use at home.
