So many methods have been developed for the treatment of psoriasis, so many drugs have been created to suppress the manifestations of this skin disease, such a huge set of ways to get rid of psoriasis symptoms is offered by folk medicine that it would seem that the disease has long been under control and it will be easy and simple to cope with it. In fact, psoriasis has been and remains an incurable disease. All that remains for a person suffering from this type of chronic dermatosis is to use any means and methods in order to keep the disease in remission for as long as possible and to eliminate the manifestations that appear during exacerbations as soon as possible.

And sometimes the most primitive (on the one hand) products that are at hand all the time can help in this. For example, salt is excellent in relieving the symptoms of psoriasis – sea salt , unique in its composition, or even the most common table (kitchen) salt.  

How should this miracle cure be used? There are no secrets in this, as there is no need for special skills for home treatment of psoriasis with salt.

Salt as a home remedy

For those who are directly concerned with the problem of psoriasis, first of all, you need to know that no non-traditional, home treatment can replace the treatment prescribed by a professional doctor. All procedures carried out at home are aimed only at relieving the symptoms of psoriasis and eliminating cosmetic defects on the skin. In addition, to start treating psoriasis disease – salt will be the main component, herbal decoctions, herbal infusions, essential oils or other folk remedies, you need only after consulting your doctor.  

So, salt. Rather, baths with warm salt water. For patients with psoriasis, this is an excellent way to suppress new focal eruptions that occur during an exacerbation of the disease, relieve unbearable itching, and relieve the burning sensation in the affected skin. Salt baths and baths promote the healing of cracks and wounds that appear on psoriatic plaques, relieve swelling, redness, peeling and irritation.

Procedures for taking warm baths help to improve the general condition of a patient with psoriasis, have a calming effect, relax and saturate the body with useful mineral components necessary not only for the skin, but also for other parts of the human body.

How to carry out the procedures?

How to do and how to take salt baths? You can buy medicated sea salt at the pharmacy and dissolve it in water according to the instructions. The concentration of the solution for the treatment of this or that form of psoriasis may be different, therefore, it is also advisable to discuss this therapy with a dermatologist in advance.

If it is not possible to buy sea salt, you can use ordinary kitchen salt – its effect will be slightly less, but, of course, it is also very useful.

In a bath with warm (but not hot!) Water, you can dissolve a whole pack of salt, and then lie down with pleasure in water at a comfortable temperature for 15-20 minutes. At this time, you need to try to cleanse the surface of psoriatic plaques from the keratinized layer of the skin (without fanaticism) and massage the diseased areas of the body with gentle light movements of the hands.

Completion of the treatment procedure is very important. Rinsing the body with fresh water is not necessary; drying with a hard towel is not. You should gently blot the skin, especially on the affected areas, with a soft towel, and then lubricate the lesions with a hypoallergenic moisturizer or medicated ointment. Compresses with herbal decoctions applied to psoriatic plaques immediately after taking a salt bath are also much more effective than usual.

If the lesions of psoriasis on the body are localized and small in size, for example, on the feet or hands, there is no need for baths. You can replace them with salt water baths, immersing only diseased limbs in the container.

To enhance the effectiveness of the treatment of psoriasis with salt , you can add decoctions or infusions of medicinal plants or healing essential oils to the baths. 

By the way, let’s dispel the myth that salt eats away at the skin affected by dermatosis. Yes, after the first procedures, redness and irritation of the inflamed areas may increase. However, this effect quickly disappears and will no longer occur during subsequent procedures.

Etiology of psoriasis

Dr. Hooman-Khorasani
Posted in Uncategorized

The etiology of psoriasis, one of the most common chronic skin diseases, is still unclear. The pathogenesis of psoriasis is complex. The course of the disease is undulating, with variable periods of remission and relapses. Among scientists, the prevailing opinion is that psoriasis belongs to the group of systemic diseases of a multifactorial nature, an important role in the occurrence of which is played by hereditary and external factors.

The etiology of psoriasis and the nature of its development are so incomprehensible that great attention has long been paid to the study of the disease. The choice of tactics for treating psoriasis directly depends on the identified causes of its occurrence, the form of the disease, the degree of development, and the severity of symptoms.  

Currently, there are several theories of the onset of psoriatic dermatosis. Let’s consider them in more detail.

All diseases “from the nerves”

The theory is neurogenic. Functional disorders of the nervous system are reflected in the development of dermatoses. The fact of the onset of psoriasis after physical and mental trauma, contusion and burns has been proven. In addition, the etiology of psoriasis of a neurogenic nature is confirmed by the therapeutic effect of the use of medications, the action of which is aimed at normalizing the functioning of the autonomic and central nervous system.  

Disturbances of the nervous system in patients with psoriasis can also be of a secondary nature, but in any case they negatively affect the development of the disease, increase the frequency of relapses, and create certain difficulties in treatment.

Endocrine theory. Scientists have found some connection between the functions of the gonads and periods of exacerbation of psoriasis. This is most noticeable in women, when the disease begins to progress during menstruation, may subside during pregnancy, and then worsen again during breastfeeding. However, what kind of hormone, the functions of which gland affect the pathogenesis of psoriasis, it was not possible to thoroughly find out.

Exchange theory. Long-term observations of patients have led to the conclusion that there are metabolic factors in the etiology of psoriasis . So patients have a whole “set” of metabolic disorders, low body temperature, changes in protein metabolism, increased cholesterol and total lipids. Together, these changes affect the condition of the skin and contribute to the onset of the primary manifestations of skin disease. In addition, in patients with psoriasis, the metabolism of vitamins is disturbed, there is a noticeable lack of vitamin C, A , B6 and B12, the content of copper, iron, zinc is reduced, which significantly reduces the body’s defense mechanisms.  

And the positive therapeutic effect of a fat-free diet, which patients follow, confirms the theory of the influence of metabolic disorders on the occurrence of psoriasis.

And maybe not only?

The theory is parasitic and infectious. Scientists have been trying to find a single causative agent of psoriasis for a long time, for which numerous studies have been carried out. In the 19th century, it was allegedly possible to discover a certain parasitic fungus, which is the causative agent of psoriasis. However, this version was not further confirmed.

The influence of infectious diseases on the occurrence and course of psoriasis, on the contrary, takes place. So, most of the patients seek medical help in the spring-autumn period, when the incidence of colds is most common. It has been proven that psoriasis can manifest itself (relapse of the disease occurs) after a sore throat, flu, catarrh of the upper respiratory tract. Most often, psoriasis is accompanied by chronic tonsillitis (90%). According to scientists, infectious diseases weaken a person’s immunity, affect the state of his vegetative system, which ultimately affects the course of skin diseases.

In addition to the theories of the onset of psoriasis given in the article, there are several more reasonable or only hypothetical versions of the onset of psoriasis. So genetic predisposition is called one of the main causes of this dermatosis, allergic reactivity is also put forward as one of the theories of the onset of the development of the disease, the immunological version is also considered in the study of the etiology of psoriasis. However, none of the theories has yet been fully proven.

Fish psoriasis treatment: a new alternative therapy

People who are faced with a skin disease such as psoriasis undoubtedly want to be cured of it, and as soon as possible. There are many ways and means to help a person overcome psoriasis. Now we will tell you about one of the unusual, alternative methods of treating psoriatic disease. This method is based on the use of the miraculous properties of a special type of fish. Treatment of psoriasis with fish is a new word in modern medicine in the fight against a disease that brings a lot of physical suffering and moral discomfort to a person.  

The essence of the technique

The method of treating psoriasis using fish is called ichthyotherapy . The medical procedure is as follows. A patient with psoriasis is placed in a special pool with thermal water. The patient’s body, especially the affected areas of the skin, begin to bite painlessly by medicinal fish, “eating” from the skin surface keratinized and dead cells.

Thermal water is a special water containing mineral substances that have a beneficial effect on the skin. There are two types of doctor fish swimming in the pool. The first type of fish bites off dead areas of the skin (that is, psoriatic plaques). The second type of fish, biting the body, “processes” it with its saliva, that is, it sterilizes the skin, which leads to faster healing of skin areas affected by psoriasis. Miracle fish work not only on sore skin areas, but pay attention to the rest of the body. Consequently, there is not only the treatment of psoriasis with fish , but also, in a certain sense, a cosmetological procedure that improves the general condition of the skin. 

Let us now understand in a little more detail what happens to a person after diving into the pool. The beneficial effect of beneficial trace elements and minerals dissolved in thermal waters immediately begins on the skin. Psoriatic plaques and ulcers covering the body soften and open when exposed to water. Up to the point that the areas where there are lesions may begin to bleed a little. In some cases, pus may even come out of the wounds. But this is not scary and even useful. Further, the doctor fish begin to bite the skin, removing old, flaky skin from the skin, thereby clearing the places where a psoriatic ulcer or plaque is present . Some very sensitive patients feel discomfort during the first procedure of ichthyotherapy , but then they get used to it, they relax and the treatment of psoriasis becomes very pleasant, painless, relaxing for them.

Where to go for the procedure?

Many, probably, have now asked themselves the question of where to find such fish, and where, in fact, such procedures are carried out. Currently, in many resorts, in many specialized medical sanatoriums, this technique is provided. If you are planning to go on vacation, then ask if ichthyotherapy is included in the cost of staying at the resort and spa treatment for psoriasis. If you are not going to go anywhere, then you should check all the beauty salons in your city. In large cities, this health and beauty procedure can be found in many beauty salons, or in specialized medical centers.

Treatment of psoriasis with fish will allow not only to get rid of the symptoms of a chronic disease for a long time, but also contribute to the treatment of rheumatic, neurological and traumatic ailments, if you have any. 

Moreover, as a result of attending ichthyotherapy procedures, your psychological and physical condition will improve. The miracle fish treatment procedure is more like a cosmetic procedure than a medical one. Just imagine – you don’t have to smear with creams and ointments with an unpleasant odor, you don’t need to make painful injections, injections, etc., you don’t need to drink medications that are dangerous to your health! All treatment consists in pleasant and comfortable procedures, which are a pleasure to undergo!

How to treat psoriasis. Celandine, chamomile and other medicinal herbs

Psoriasis, a disease with such unpleasant external manifestations that it gives the patient not so much physical torment as terrible psychological discomfort. It is quite understandable that in order to get rid of repulsive psoriatic plaques as soon as possible, a person is ready to resort to any method of treatment. And although the traditional treatment, developed and prescribed by a professional doctor, will always remain the main course for combating psoriasis, patients with psoriasis turn to traditional medicine very often and, in most cases, in the first place.

Let’s take a closer look at how to get rid of psoriasis with the help of medicinal herbs, or at least just hide the skin defects that occur during the disease.

Herbal infusions and ointments

One of the ways to use medicinal herbs in the treatment of psoriasis is to prepare an infusion. As an example, we will give several recipes for preparing such a “home” medicine.

1. The herb is common turnip . We put one tablespoon of the herb we need in a thermos, fill it with a glass of water brought to a boil, and insist for three hours. We filter. The resulting infusion is taken before meals in a quarter of a glass.

2. Blackberry leaves. Put 5 teaspoons of leaves in a thermos and fill them with 2 glasses of hot water. We insist about 4 hours. We filter. Application: 30 minutes before meals, ½ cup.

3. Black elderberry flowers. We take a thermos or some other container, pour one tablespoon of leaves into it, pour ½ liter of boiling water. We insist for a couple of hours. We filter. Application: after meals for ½ cup.

Found their application in the fight against psoriasis and ointments, which include many medicinal herbs. Here are several options for making ointments that have shown excellent results in treating psoriasis symptoms:

1. It copes very well with the task of treating such diseases as psoriasis, celandine . It is used in different ways, for example, like this: grind dry celandine in a coffee grinder, mix it with lard. Apply the fatty ointment directly to the lesions. 

2. Honey and tar. You will need petroleum jelly (20 grams), birch tar (50 grams), boric acid (10 grams), honey (30 grams), fish oil (10 grams) and the protein of one chicken egg. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly, use the resulting ointment once a day.

3. Combined hodgepodge. We need to stock up on burdock root, walnut leaf, oak bark, rose petals, calendula flowers, celandine, horsetail grass. Burdock root, walnut leaf, oak bark take one tablespoon, the rest is ½ tablespoon. Grind all herbs in a coffee grinder, pour in ½ liter of almond oil and keep for 15 minutes on low heat. We insist the resulting solution for 2-3 days in a warm place. We filter. We use the ointment daily. You need to store the medicinal herbal ointment only in the refrigerator.

Herbal compresses

Compresses are very often used in non-traditional treatment of psoriasis. Celandine , violet, currants and other medicinal plants are great for preparing compresses that are effective in their effect. 

1. We need: field horsetail, yarrow, celandine large, sweet clover, tricolor violet, and we also need calendula flowers, walnut and black currant leaves and burdock root. Grind all dry herbs in a coffee grinder. We take a thermos, pour one tablespoon of the collection, fill it with a glass of boiling water and insist for an hour. We filter.

2. Chamomile. We take chamomile flowers, fill them with boiling water, wrap the container with our solution and keep it for 30 minutes. We apply the steamed chamomile flowers to the area of ​​the skin affected by psoriasis. Cover the top with cotton wool, previously soaked in chamomile infusion. We fix the compress with cling film. These compresses are usually done at bedtime.

In the fight against psoriasis, regular home treatments and skin care are really helpful. Just do not forget that non-traditional treatment using medicinal herbs is just an accompanying course of the treatment prescribed by the doctor. As an independent therapy, traditional medicine methods do not need to be taken. And yet remember that at home they treat psoriasis with celandine and chamomile, walnut and black currant leaves, and many other medicinal herbs. Do not be lazy, spend half an hour preparing a decoction or a bath, so that you can then rejoice at the sight of healthy skin.  

Diet can help fight psoriasis

Scientists believe that psoriasis is associated with inflammation in the human body. The Mediterranean diet helps to fight it and effectively reduce the manifestations of the disease. This input came from French scientists at the Hopital Mondor in Creteuil . 

Experts analyzed information about the health of more than 35 thousand volunteers, of whom more than 3 thousand suffered from psoriasis, and a third of them were in a very severe form. According to observations, patients who ate foods from the list of the Mediterranean diet were much less likely to see a doctor due to exacerbation of psoriasis, and also had milder symptoms of the course of the disease. 

Fans of the Mediterranean diet consume large amounts of vegetable monounsaturated fats, antioxidants and polyphenols found in fruits and vegetables, as well as fiber. In addition, this diet involves a limited intake of dairy products, alcohol and meat. Previous studies have shown that severe forms of psoriasis are noted 22% less often among lovers of such food.  

Experts believe that this type of diet reduces the level of inflammation in the body, and it is this circumstance that helps to reduce the severity of the manifestations of psoriasis.

Do’s and don’ts for psoriasis

Dr. Hooman-Khorasani
Posted in Uncategorized

Psoriasis is an incurable chronic disease, therefore, in order to maximize the periods of remission, one should not only be treated, but also minimize the influence of provoking factors, and for this it is necessary to know them.

Psoriasis: Do’s and Don’ts

The mechanism of the onset and development of the disease remains unclear even today. There are several theories about the causes of psoriasis: immune, hereditary, endocrine, neurogenic, metabolic. Most scientists lean towards the theory of the complex influence of all causes. In addition, provoking factors are important.

Psoriasis and alcohol

Ethanol, present in any alcoholic beverage, is broken down by the liver into safe ingredients. However, with large amounts of alcohol or an unhealthy liver, this process does not occur quickly enough. The intermediate product of ethanol metabolism (acetaldehyde) begins to poison the body.

The skin is one of the ways to remove toxins, so alcoholics usually sweat a lot. Of course, not all drinkers have psoriasis, but in this group, the disease is diagnosed much more often, and is much more severe. Another argument in favor of the fact that alcohol is harmful for psoriasis is dehydration, which primarily affects the skin.

If we analyze the relative safety of alcohol in psoriasis, then the minimum manifestations are caused by high-quality drinks without dyes (vodka, dry white wine), and in small quantities. The most powerful provoking effect is possessed by beer, red sweet wines, champagne, and cognac.


A visit to the pool can be more uncomfortable psychologically than physiologically. Those people who have not encountered psoriasis closely enough have a rather distant understanding of the nature of the disease, and not always correct. Therefore, if necessary, it is worth explaining to them that the disease is not contagious and is not transmitted in the usual ways (household, sexual, etc.).

However, during periods of exacerbation, it is not recommended to visit the pool. And even during remission, you should pre-lubricate the affected areas with petroleum jelly so that they do not get water with disinfectants present there (for example, chlorine).

After the end of the swim, you need to rinse yourself with warm water, while observing the rules for washing:

  • Movements should be soft, do not rub the skin;
  • You should not wipe your body with a towel, just get wet on the wet surface;
  • All creases and hidden places must be thoroughly dried.

Some are worried about obtaining a certificate for visiting the pool – it is better to take it from an infectious disease specialist, and not from a dermatologist.

Psoriasis and sun

The beneficial effect of sunlight has been noticed by more than one psoriasis patient. However, like any medicine, sunbathing can become harmful if overdose. Therefore, it is necessary to adhere to several recommendations:

  • To accustom the skin to sun exposure gradually: starting with 5-7 minutes, bring the duration of the sun bath to half an hour;
  • Choose periods when the sun is less aggressive: before 10 am and after 5 pm;
  • Apply sun cream only to healthy skin;
  • Lubricate the affected areas after sunbathing with an anti-inflammatory agent recommended by a doctor.

And, of course, you can only sunbathe during periods of remission.


Since some doctors put forward the theory of the development of psoriasis as a disease of metabolic processes, the principles of nutrition play one of the decisive roles in neutralizing symptoms. There are lists of foods that you can eat for psoriasis and forbidden foods. In the preparation of ready-made diets are especially popular diet Pagano and fire. The main principle of the first is a significant predominance (3 times) of alkali-forming ingredients.  

Prohibited foods for psoriasis include:

  • Vegetables and fruits with red pigmentation;
  • Spices and herbs, seasonings (especially from flowers and seeds), as well as products with their content;
  • Sweets, soda;
  • Fatty meats;
  • Smoked, salted, canned foods.

The best option is to draw up an individual diet with the involvement of a nutritionist and dermatologist. You should always be careful when consuming foods with increased allergenicity, drink plenty of fluids and try to exclude the possibility of gaining excess weight.

Psoriasis and sauna

Bath and sauna provide the most beneficial effect on the body and, in particular, on the cells of the base layer of the epidermis. Doctors recommend going to the bathhouse and sauna, as this significantly reduces the area of ​​the affected areas (by 10-13%), itching decreases, and the skin becomes soft and elastic.

However, in this case, the procedure must follow several rules:

  • The maximum possible stay in the steam room is 15 minutes;
  • Optimum t +55 + 60 ° С, not higher;
  • When visiting the sauna, it is recommended to drink herbal soothing decoctions and berry fruit drinks;
  • Do not rub and stretch the skin;
  • After leaving the steam room, you can swim in the pool not earlier than after 30-40 minutes.

The most pronounced therapeutic effect is observed after visiting the infrared sauna, when the affected areas are warmed up to a depth of 4 cm.

Doctors recognize the healing effect of any warming procedure, but only if it is carried out correctly and dosed.

What can help treat psoriasis

In the treatment of psoriasis, the greatest effect is brought by an integrated approach:

  • Medicines. Distinguish between means for external use and internal use. Among the most effective drugs are hormonal ointments. Akriderm for psoriasis (one of these remedies) is available in several versions with different effects;  
  • Physiotherapy, nutrition, psychotherapy, plasmapheresis are additional methods that increase the chances of successful treatment.

“Mystical” disease psoriasis: symptoms, causes

Dr. Hooman-Khorasani
Posted in Uncategorized

Dermatological diseases are recognized by experts as the most complex phenomena. It is often difficult to explain the nature of a particular skin ailment. The provoking factors for the formation of specific spots, seals, “moles” or warts can be both internal reactions of the body and external contact interactions. The difficulty of identifying the true causes of the disease is also characteristic of psoriasis, a widespread type of dermatosis.

According to experts, the striking activity of psoriasis “competes” with a similar indicator of diabetes. The frequency of new cases of the development of skin abnormalities partly explains the etymology of this disease. When determining the possible causes of the disease, it is important to evaluate the symptoms of psoriasis on two grounds: the location and intensity of the rash.  

How to visually identify psoriasis?

In general, psoriasis is extensive skin lesions in the form of specific red plaques covered with a light or white scaly crust. The primary signs of the disease are marked by the appearance of small formations. The proliferation of plaques is largely facilitated by independent attempts to eliminate them.

If the appearance of psoriasis was not preceded by mechanical trauma to the skin, the first spots can appear on any part of the human body. The preferred location for psoriatic skin abnormalities is the back, neck, arms, less often the frontal part, head and legs. In the acute period of the development of the disease, the symptoms of psoriasis are manifested by profuse rashes with scaly components, accompanied by severe itching in the lesions.  

Chronic psoriasis (after several months) is represented by a decrease in the activity of neoplasms. In this case, the old plaques gradually thicken, covered with characteristic white scales.

The final phase in the development of psoriasis is a period of regression. At this time, the skin formations become less noticeable or disappear altogether. The disease goes into a regression stage, but outbreaks of exacerbations are possible at any time. It is not possible to completely cure psoriasis.

Sources of psoriasis

Some of the most obvious causes of psoriasis are disorders of the immune system. Improper diet, chronic fatigue, and bad habits play an active role.

The primary symptoms of psoriasis are often found in people with mental disorders. A common cause of the disease is a genetic predisposition, while the risk of developing psoriasis is high in first- and second-line relatives (children and grandchildren). One of the most common provocateurs of skin pathology is any mechanical damage to the skin – scratches, abrasions, stab and cut wounds, burns (thermal or chemical).  

Treatment of “traumatic” psoriasis appears to be the most successful. While multifactorial varieties of the disease (immune, hereditary, psychosomatic) are recognized as incurable even with the maximum elimination of its formal signs.

The main method of influencing complex psoriasis is immunomodulatory therapy. The patient may be assigned a special anti-allergenic diet. Often, a course of psychological adaptation and climatotherapy (treatment at sea or mud resorts) are added to the standard treatment regimen. The effectiveness of this healing method is recognized by experts as low.

An unfavorable prognosis for the course of the disease is announced to HIV-infected patients, as well as to those with a high erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR).

Of course, the manifestations of psoriasis are an extremely unpleasant process, complicated by symptoms. The absence of the only correct treatment algorithm, the impossibility of establishing the true causes of the disease formally correlate psoriasis with the list of incurable diseases. At the same time, experts recognize the exceptional nature of this ailment. While not a deadly disease, psoriasis can manifest itself as a self-limiting pathology.

Psoriaten ointment. External treatment for psoriasis

People with psoriasis are ready to resort to using any means in order to quickly get rid of an unpleasant-looking disease. Someone uses the latest hardware techniques and folk remedies, while others prefer ointments and medicated creams recommended by dermatologists. Unfortunately, it is impossible to recover from psoriasis – you can only hide its symptoms, which manifest themselves outwardly on the body of a repulsive type of psoriatic plaques. In addition, many pharmaceutical drugs cause side effects and reactions in patients. What to choose among all the variety of ointments and creams?

Now the drug psoriaten ointment is very popular , which is used for the external treatment of psoriasis. Let’s talk about the composition, properties and methods of using this tool in more detail. 

The main active ingredients of psoriaten

Psoriaten ointment is the development of one of the German companies. The active ingredient of the drug is a matrix tincture of magnolia holly (proportion 10%). The composition of the bark, root and other parts of this medicinal plant includes such chemical compounds as berberine, palmatine and berbamine , oxyacanthin and many others. It is these substances that play an important role in the fight against psoriasis. They stop any inflammatory processes in the tissues of the epidermis, that is, they inhibit the formation of psoriatic plaques. Also, the substances that make up psoriaten ointment presumably affect the DNA and can, in a sense, help reduce the risk of inherited psoriasis “harmful” genes.

Some statistics

Some time ago, much attention was paid to the study of the properties of the drug and the degree of its effect on people with psoriasis. Here are some data.

In clinical studies, about 1000 people took part in the age category from 6 to 80. The course of treatment with local therapy for them lasted about 12 weeks. Throughout this time, at regular intervals, scientists conducted control examinations of patients.

At the end of the scientific and laboratory work, it was found that in 80% of all patients with psoriasis who took part in this study, psoriatic ointment really worked positively. Almost all patients tolerated the use of the new drug normally and without consequences, that is, they did not have any side effects or complications.  

Only 11 out of 1000 people could not wait for the desired effect from the applied ointment. Only 3 out of 1000 people complained of itchy skin. But the most important thing is that many patients who have tried the effect of psoriaten ointment on themselves managed to return to normal life after the first course of treatment. Under the influence of the ointment, the skin was completely cleared of the manifestations of psoriasis, psoriatic plaques disappeared , and the psychological state of the patients changed for the better.

Unlike other drugs (ointments and creams) that fight psoriasis, psoriatic ointment can be used almost always and for everyone due to the absence of any side effect. During periods of seasonal exacerbation of the disease, psoriaten will need to be used regularly, every day applying it to areas of skin lesions. During periods of remission of psoriasis, the need for the use of the drug disappears. This ointment is good because you will see the effect of the application after 2 weeks, and after 8 you will no longer have any external symptoms of the disease. Moreover, the drug is allowed both for children from one year old and for adults.  

All those who suffer from psoriasis are well aware of how others perceive his appearance and with what fear they relate to him. Thanks to psoriaten ointment , psoriasis will be defeated, you will be able to feel more freely in any environment, when communicating with any people.

Psoriasis is a chronic dermatosis in which red, inflamed patches appear on the skin with constant scaling ( psoriatic plaques). The disease can develop at different rates, showing plaques on any part of the body. However, most often the disease affects the elbow joints, scalp, knee joints, lower back. There are many reasons and conditions favorable for the development of psoriasis. These are any physical damage to the skin, chemical burns, changes in hormonal levels, a strong decrease in immunity or stress, etc.

Psoriasis treatment also depends on many factors. Only a professional doctor should prescribe it. It is necessary to carefully apply potent agents during the progressive stage (the time of the appearance and growth of new plaques), so as not to provoke an even greater exacerbation. The main treatment is best done while the growth of the rash stops at the stationary or regressive stage of the disease. Folk remedies can be used in the treatment of psoriasis, but only after consultation with a specialist and only in combination with the main treatment.

In the effective treatment of psoriasis, birch tar is indispensable (due to its natural antiseptic, wound-healing properties) Psoriasis is not an infectious disease, but in some cases it appears or worsens for the first time after an infection. Sometimes the disease can be complicated by an attached fungal infection or streptococcal purulent skin lesions. Having in its composition a huge amount of useful substances, tar relieves the general condition of the patient, relieves itching and inflammation of the skin. In addition, special substances contained in wood tar are able to regulate the growth of cells with damaged DNA, thereby slowing down the growth of psoriatic plaques.

Recipes and rules for the treatment of tar

To avoid irritation on the skin or exacerbation of the disease, it is better to start treatment with fat-based and weaker composition, where the tar components are less active than in water-based preparations. Sometimes, when the compositions are applied to the lesions, a short-term burning sensation appears. However, such sensations are repeated only in the first few times of using tar preparations.

1. Pure tar is rubbed into psoriatic plaques with a hard natural brush (with a concentration of no more than 5% – unrefined or up to 10% – cleaned). For better tolerance, up to 2% boric acid can be immediately added to the tar. It is necessary to wash off the ointment no earlier than after 30 minutes. Daily use is recommended. After removing tar residues, lubricate the affected areas with an indifferent ointment (boric, salicylic acid, or any other lanolin-based ointment).

2. In case of an old disease, to soften the skin, first take a medicinal bath with herbs and oils, lasting about half an hour, and then apply tar to the skin areas affected by psoriasis. Repeat the procedure until the plaque softens.

3. It is very easy to prepare homemade ointments, which include birch tar. For example, an ointment of this composition will cure psoriasis : mix 3 tablespoons of honey with 1 egg white, castor oil and tar, 2 tablespoons each.  

Attention! Tar increases the sensitivity of the skin to light and heat, so it is highly undesirable to stay in the sun for a long time during treatment. It is not recommended to use tar and tar compositions for the treatment of psoriasis at a progressive stage. It is completely forbidden to use it in case of severe exacerbation of the disease, as well as psoriatic erythroderma.
