Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin disease characterized by the appearance of pinkish spots with clearly defined boundaries on various parts of the body and with increased desquamation of the epithelium on the surface of the lesions. Psoriasis is a disease of the century, since this type of skin pathology affects millions of people around the world. Currently, the cause of psoriasis has not been established, but it is assumed that hereditary (genetic) factors are involved in the development of this disease a major role.  

The nature of the disease

Psoriasis is a chronic, often recurrent skin inflammation that occurs throughout a person’s life. At the initial stage, the disease is accompanied by significant lesions of small areas of the skin in any anatomical area of ​​the body. With a sufficiently long course of the disease, the lesions spread and capture large areas of the epidermis.

The main symptoms of psoriasis: the formation of pinkish spots on the skin, the surface of which is characterized by flaking, a feeling of “drawn in” and dry skin, itching and burning, hardening of the skin. The process of diagnosing this disease is carried out when characteristic formations appear on the skin.

There are three layers in the structure of skin tissues: epidermis, hypodermis and dermis. The epidermis is the surface layer of the skin. It consists of special cells, which, in the process of division and vital activity, form the so-called stratum corneum, consisting of horny scales. As they die off, the smallest scales naturally peel off, and in their place cells appear from the deep layers of the skin. Thanks to such processes, the skin of the human body is constantly renewed.

The season when psoriasis is a neuro-allergic disease is in progress – winter. However, exacerbations can be triggered by prolonged exposure to the sun, various infectious diseases, injuries, etc.  

With an exacerbation of psoriasis, new papules are formed (vesicular rashes on the skin), in the stationary stage, the appearance of papules stops, the existing ones begin to fade. During regression, the papules turn pale, decrease in size, and cease to rise above the surface of the skin. Peeling stops and itching decreases.

Psoriasis is an inflammation of the upper layers of skin tissue, that is, the epidermis. For unknown reasons, in people who suffer from psoriasis, the cells of the lower layers of the epidermis divide at a faster rate than in the absence of the disease, which leads to the rapid rejection of the surface layers of the epidermis and is caused by excessive flaking of the skin.

Causes of occurrence

For what reason psoriasis develops , a disease that is so widespread in our time, has not yet been established. However, there is a point of view that the main factor affecting the possibility of the onset of the disease at any age period is human heredity. 

In addition, some reasons have been identified that provoke the development of psoriasis. The primary and main cause of psoriasis is considered to be disturbances in the functioning of the nervous system, which are the result of constant nervous tension, emotional breakdowns and stresses that occur in the life of a modern person. In addition, the disease can be caused by various infectious diseases, skin injuries, sunburn, alcohol consumption, HIV infection, as well as the use of certain foods and the intake of potent drugs (an allergic reaction of the body).

Most studies have confirmed the version that psoriasis is not a contagious disease, and is not transmitted to others through contact or airborne droplets.

If you have any signs of psoriasis, you should see your doctor urgently. Treatment of psoriasis is a laborious process, which for the most part does not lead to a complete cure, but only translates the disease into a stage of remission, which is usually considered as a positive result of the therapy undertaken.

Parapsoriasis : types, features, symptoms

With this term, parapsoriasis , it is customary to designate a group of specific dermatoses that are transmitted mainly by inheritance. The disease is superficial and affects the upper layers of the epidermis. Parapsoriasis is predominantly chronic in nature, does not have general phenomena and subjective sensations, and has a tendency to resist therapeutic treatment. The factors determining the onset of the disease have not yet been established. Sometimes infectious or allergic infectious causes of the disease can be traced. It is known that the severe development of the disease can be accompanied by various infectious diseases.  

Types of parapsoriasis

Teardrop parapsoriaz . It is also called chronic lichenoid lichen and nodular psoriasiform dermatitis. This type of disease in women occurs about 2 times more often than in the strong sex. Typical for adolescents and middle-aged people. This type of psoriasis is extremely rare in children. 

With guttate parapsoriasis, the skin is suddenly covered with many papules ranging in size from 3 to 4 millimeters. Papules are pale pink or brown in color. In the center of the papule there is a firmly seated brownish scale, which, when removed, takes the form of a shell. During light scraping, a slight peeling forms on the surface of the papules , and with intense scraping, punctate hemorrhages form.

Lichenoid parapsoriasis . This type of dermatosis has another name – variegated or reticular parakeratosis. The risk group most often includes adults of both sexes. Children are rarely affected by the disease.

Plaque parapsoriasis usually occurs in people of retirement or middle age. Men are more susceptible to it than women. Plaque parapsoriasis arises and develops as follows. The skin on the limbs (upper and lower), trunk (back, belly, chest), and most often the lateral surfaces begins to become covered with rounded spots of gray-pink color with a brown tint. The edges of the lesions are clearly defined. No seepage into the system is detected. Atrophy of the skin in the lesions is not observed. It can take many years for the development of psoriatic plaques to regress.   

Acute type of parapsoriasis . It is also called Fly Habermann ‘s disease , acute lichenoid and varioliform lichen. The disease affects adults of both sexes. Distinctive features of acute parapsoriasis are manifold changes on the skin. Simultaneously with rashes similar to a rash with teardrop-shaped psoriasis, bleeding in papules, bloody crusts with dead elements, as well as varicella-like vesicular elements are revealed .

A couple of weeks after the regression procedures, spots and depleted scars remain at the site of the former inflammations. Sometimes the disease drags on and turns into a drop-shaped type.

Diagnosis and treatment of parapsoriasis

Pathological changes in skin tissues in the disease are not determined. A distinctive diagnostic test should be carried out along with psoriasis, papular syphilis , lichen planus, seborrheic dermatitis, chickenpox, etc. The life prognosis for the disease is positive. At least once every six months, the patient needs to be examined by a dermatologist.

There are no generally accepted treatments for the disease. With the drop-shaped type of parapsoriasis, sanitation of the foci of infection is prescribed. Usually they prescribe widely acting antibiotics, hyposensitizing , antihistamines, vascular drugs. In the chronic form of the disease , which is at the stage of resolution, PUVA therapy shows good results.

With plaque , as well as lichenoid types of this skin disease, the same therapeutic therapies are carried out as with guttate parapsoriasis , although in this case the disease is much more difficult to treat.

If the result from the above treatment is not effective enough, as well as in the acute type of parapsoriasis, the patient must be prescribed low doses of glucocorticosteroids . For local therapy, local glucocorticosteroids , moisturizing medicinal creams, and absorbable ointments are used.

Doctors do not just talk about the effect of a balanced diet and a special diet in the treatment of psoriasis. Practice shows that a properly planned diet, a special diet for psoriasis become fundamental factors and the key to a successful fight for clean skin, help keep the disease in remission, and resist relapses. If you really strive to face the recurrence of the appearance of psoriatic plaques on the skin as rarely as possible , you will have to give up some foods once and for all, and also constantly adhere to the same diet.  

“Right” foods for psoriasis

The main thing in the treatment of psoriasis is to achieve a stable and normal functioning of the digestive tract, that is, to create the correct acid-base environment in the digestive organs. If this condition is met, then the functions of the body will gradually recover and your condition will noticeably improve.

In order to achieve such a result, you need to know which foods can be included in the diet, and which ones are best to be discarded altogether. By schelocheobrazuyuschih products include:

· Fruits, vegetables (almost everything!) And juices from them must be present in the daily diet!

· You can eat grains and cereals, among which buckwheat, millet, brown rice, oats, bran, sprouted wheat, rye are especially useful.

· It is recommended to use sesame seeds, pumpkin, sunflower, flax, pine nuts, natural muesli (buckwheat, oat, wheat).

· Be sure to include vegetable oils (olive, sunflower oil, etc.) in your menu.

In addition, the diet for psoriasis does not sometimes prohibit the use of olives, nuts, mushrooms, grapes, low-fat cheeses, low-fat dairy products (cottage cheese, yogurt, kefir) in the diet. And to make it much easier for the body to fight the disease, it is necessary to limit the use of foods that contribute to the formation of an acidic environment in the gastrointestinal tract. These include, for example, raw smoked and smoked sausages, animal fats, potatoes, fatty meat dishes, fried foods, sugar and all confectionery products, hard cheese, butter and cream, and some cereals.  

Now we list the foods that the diet for psoriasis completely and irrevocably excludes.  

“Wrong” foods for psoriasis

It is possible that very many people suffering from psoriasis will find it very difficult to give up forever from the products, the list of which will be given below. But! You must prioritize what is more important for you, live a full life, communicate without hesitation with others, rejoice that the disease is being controlled or give up and continue to indulge your whims, thereby aggravating your chronic disease and your health.

So, if you are determined to take the path of recovery, you should never use:

Any alcohol

Sweets, starch, sugar (including cane sugar)

Products containing dyes, preservatives, flavorings

·Vinegar

Cocoa, coffee, chocolate

·Milk

· Marine and river crustaceans, as well as any dishes from them

·Yeast

·Carbonated drinks

White flour baked goods

To improve metabolism while dieting, you need to drink plenty of purified water, freshly squeezed vegetable and fruit juices. It is advisable to replace black tea with herbal tea or herbal decoctions.

Exclude from the list of approved and recommended foods for the diet those that cause you an allergic reaction. Introduce new foods into the diet gradually, carefully listening to how the body reacts to them.

In addition to the main diet, take vitamin complexes, macro and micronutrients , minerals, which are usually recommended for therapeutic dietary complexes.

Be sure to check your diet with your doctor. Knowing all the features of your body, observing the course of the disease, the specialist will be able to correct the diet and make useful additions to it.

Pregnancy and psoriasis: is there cause for concern?

Dr. Hooman-Khorasani
Posted in Uncategorized

Pregnancy for any woman is a special stage that heralds a new branch of life, full of new joys, anxieties, worries, and happiness. But this is also a complete, enormous responsibility for the future – one’s own future and the future of the child. Especially if a woman has any health problems that can somehow affect the course of pregnancy, intrauterine development of the fetus, and the health of the baby. Pregnancy and psoriasis – what anxiety does this “combination” cause in the expectant mother?    

Pregnancy is characterized by many physiological changes in the body of the expectant mother. From the beginning to the very end of the gestational period, especially in the presence of a chronic disease, both the mother and the child become vulnerable to a variety of external and internal adverse factors. Chronic diseases of a woman, her use of certain medications, and other factors can have a far from harmless effect on the development of the fetus. The course of pregnancy in women with one form or another of psoriasis can be complicated by both pathological changes caused by the disease and the means used to treat it.

Direct risks

There is some relationship between some autoimmune, inflammatory diseases, including psoriasis, with the risk of miscarriage, premature birth and low birth weight. This fact is due to the inclusion of cells of the immune system in the process of pathological development of the disease, as well as the concomitant stimulation of the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines, hormone-like proteins that provide intercellular interactions. A large amount of these substances causes endothelial dysfunction, which leads through the induction of platelet aggregation, activation of blood coagulation processes and intermittent vasospasm to placental and systemic vasculopathies .

The pregnancy-psoriasis combination for many women can mean the presence of frequent stresses associated with chronic skin disease. Constant nervous tension can affect the psycho-emotional state of a woman, entails depression, alcohol abuse, smoking, and rapid weight gain. These factors, of course, can affect the development of the fetus in the most unpredictable, but always negative way, provoke the development of various pathologies, diseases, deformities.

Indirect risks

Psoriasis is often accompanied by concomitant systemic diseases such as obesity, diabetes mellitus, diseases of the endocrine, cardiovascular and nervous systems, metabolic syndrome. Such conditions, as well as the drugs used to stop them, cannot but affect the development of the fetus.

For example, arterial hypertension is directly related to miscarriage , the risk of premature birth, placental insufficiency, low or too high birth weight perinatal mortality. The drugs used to treat this condition can cause physical abnormalities and deformities in the fetus.

Pregnancy, psoriasis , plus diabetes mellitus is also the reason for the likely development of numerous diseases of the child, including congenital malformations, fetal macrosomia , and postpartum hypoglycemia. Obesity, which often affects pregnant women with psoriasis, is associated with the likelihood of high fetal weight, the risk of premature birth, and a low Apgar score (assessment of the condition of the newborn).

In addition to the above factors, the use of many drugs for the treatment of psoriasis by the expectant mother can lead to undesirable options for the development of events. Therefore, in order to avoid any complications, it is necessary to inform the dermatologist and the gynecologist leading the pregnancy as soon as possible about your condition.

The magnitude of the effect of psoriasis on pregnancy and fetal development can vary. In order to reduce the risk of developing any negative consequences for herself and the unborn child, a woman should pay special attention to both her lifestyle in general and methods of treating psoriasis and related diseases.

Psoriasis treatment and psoriasis diet, truth and myths

Dr. Hooman-Khorasani
Posted in Uncategorized

Psoriasis is widespread not only in Russia, but also in the world. However, as a rule, not much is known about this disease. Patients with psoriasis are afraid, try to avoid. Despite the large amount of literature and scientific evidence, psoriasis treatment and diet for psoriasis are most often subject to a lot of myths and misconceptions. Let’s try to refute them.  

What is psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic disease, it is based on the process of inflammation in the skin. In this disease, the upper layer of the skin is affected – the epidermis, the cells of which are scales. A patient with psoriasis is renewing epidermal cells at a much faster rate than a healthy person.

For a long time, and to this day, there are many myths about the cause of this disease. For example, that psoriasis is characteristic of closed persons, poorly adapted to society, or arises from errors in the diet – the use of mostly fatty foods. The cause of psoriasis has not been fully established. It is noted that the disease is hereditary.

Initially, psoriasis usually affects limited areas of the skin on the elbows and knees. Over time, these areas increase in size. Rashes in psoriasis look like raised pinkish bumps with scales on the surface. Skin injuries (abrasions, scratches) contribute to the appearance of new areas. For psoriatic lesions is also typical feeling retracted and severe itching.

Psoriasis treatment diet for psoriasis

Treatment of psoriasis is a laborious process, it is aimed primarily at suppressing inflammation in the epidermis. The selection of therapy is carried out on the basis of the doctor’s determination of the form, stage of the disease, and the characteristics of a particular patient. Unsurprisingly, psoriasis treatment and psoriasis diet are a separate point of confusion. For many years, they tried to treat this disease only with folk methods.  

Therapy for psoriasis is local (creams, ointments) and systemic (oral preparations). Locally used ointments such as salicylic 0.5-5%, naphthalan 5-10%, products containing hormones ( locoid , elok ), ointments with vitamins, for example, calcipotriol containing vitamin D. There are also creams, shampoos and aerosols for the affected scalp – skin cap.

Systemic treatment is used for severe forms of the disease. Systemic drugs for the treatment of psoriasis include: cyclosporine, methotrexate, roaccutane .

Ultraviolet radiation – photochemotherapy – is widely used to treat psoriasis.

It should be noted that there are many treatment regimens for psoriasis, selected individually. For the effect to be most lasting, psoriasis treatment and psoriasis diet must be inextricably linked.  

The diet is based on the correct ratio of acid and alkali-forming foods, the correct proportions of which should be about 2: 1.

Alkali-forming foods (increasing the alkaline reaction) are primarily fruits and berries. Vegetables, almost everything, alkalize the environment, especially the stems and roots of plants. It is permissible to eat lean combs of meat and game, though not more than 2 times a week. Heat treatment can be any, excluding frying.

Acid-forming foods such as meat, potatoes, beans, peas, cheeses, sugar, butter and margarine, sweets, yeast dough baked goods should be consumed by psoriasis patients with caution. It is strictly forbidden to eat foods with preservatives, flavorings, food colors, smoked meats. Alcoholic drinks are also not recommended.

Do not forget about the common truth that for the successful treatment of psoriasis, any therapy should be discussed with a specialist.

Nail psoriasis: treatment with traditional methods

Psoriasis of nails is not only an unpleasant, incurable disease, but also a significant problem of aesthetics for a sick person. As soon as psoriasis affects the nail plate, it begins to exfoliate, acquiring an unpleasant shade and texture. Very often, the disease proceeds with painful attacks, because the skin near the nail is affected by small erosions or is covered with cracks. If you do not pay enough attention to nail psoriasis, the treatment is inept, incorrect, artisanal, then you run the risk of losing your nails completely, since the nail plates will gradually peel off and fall off.  

How to treat nail psoriasis

No matter how psoriasis of nails manifests itself, it must be treated without fail. This is not just a problem with affected nails, but also a real threat to the entire body. When the nail is deformed and traumatized by disease, it becomes a target for infection and fungal diseases. Experts say that nail psoriasis, the treatment of which is started in a timely manner, will not cause so much inconvenience and suffering to an infected person, and the disease can be dealt with with minimal health risks.   

First of all, it is necessary to direct all efforts to eliminate external symptoms and strengthen the physical condition of the body. Although modern medicine is moving forward, today there are not very many essential drugs that could effectively treat nail psoriasis. There are few of them, but they are still there.

Often people start to self-medicate or share recommendations with each other, which leads to sad results. Now there are many competent specialists who will accurately help establish a diagnosis and choose the right technique according to your constitution.

Traditional and folk methods

To achieve a successful result and stable remission, it is necessary to skillfully combine traditional and folk remedies in the fight against nail psoriasis. It is necessary to use preparations with a high content of calcium, silicon, selenium and zinc, which contribute to the formation of bone tissue, in particular the nail plate. If the disease is mild, no special treatment is required. In this case, medical and cosmetic varnishes will help, which slow down the damage to the nails. If the toenails are damaged, it is necessary to abandon narrow models of shoes, and instead purchase a spacious and comfortable one.

Like any other disease, nail psoriasis, which should be treated under the guidance of an experienced dermatologist, cannot do without prescribing vitamin complexes containing a large amount of elements of group B, C, E, D, P, etc. If an exacerbation of the disease occurs, taking vitamins must be temporarily abandoned.  

In case of serious damage to the nail plate, local treatment is used in the form of rubbing in various ointments, tinctures, emulsions, natural oils, etc. For the treatment of nails and periungual rollers, drugs containing calcipotriol , retinol acetate or fluorouracil solution are used . The duration of treatment can be from 2 to 6 months, and sometimes up to a year. Additionally, it is recommended to massage the soft tissues on the fingers around the nail. Such procedures must be done every day for three months.

Using folk and traditional remedies in the treatment and prevention, you can improve not only the condition of the nails, but also the skin around them. In folk medicine, decoctions of bay leaves and various medicinal preparations are widely used. The composition of such a collection may include a string, celandine, lingonberry leaves, St. John’s wort, calamus and elecampane root, chamomile and other useful herbs. Healing decoctions and infusions can not only be consumed inside, but also take medicinal baths with herbs. For example, baths with oatmeal or cornstarch are great for improving the condition of the nail plate.

Treatment of any form of nail psoriasis will be effective only when all the recommendations of the attending physician are followed, remember this and never deviate from the basic rules!

Psoriasis treatment at the Dead Sea

Dr. Hooman-Khorasani
Posted in Uncategorized

Psoriasis is a chronic hereditary autoimmune skin disease. Normally, the process of skin renewal lasts about a month: the surface cells of the epidermis die off, peel off and are replaced by new ones generated by the deep layers of the dermis. With psoriasis, this process is accelerated several times and takes only 3-4 days.

Dead cells do not have time to fall off, accumulate and form a thick layer of epidermal cells. Keratinized cells give the affected areas a whitish color. The blood vessels do not have time to feed the thickened skin layer, they expand, their network develops. Patients suffer from unbearable itching in the affected areas of the skin. Often, the disease is accompanied by psoriatic arthritis, nail psoriasis, fungal and bacterial infections, and a deterioration in general health. It is not even worth mentioning the moral suffering of patients with psoriasis and psychological discomfort – this is obvious.

Medication for psoriasis consists in taking hormonal drugs, medicinal ointments, and traditional medicine. Hardware – in UV irradiation, PUVA therapy, and other techniques. But these methods do not give the desired duration of remission. In addition, the likelihood of side effects of such therapies is high.

Today, the most optimal solution is spa treatment, including the treatment of psoriasis in the Dead Sea , which uses natural remedies that exclude the manifestation of side effects. The Dead Sea is distinguished by a unique combination of natural components: climate, air, water, lack of flora and fauna, and geographical location. Since ancient times, it has been famous for its medicinal properties. In ancient manuscripts, there are references to miraculous healings in the waters of the Dead Sea from any skin diseases and severe chronic ailments. 

What is the uniqueness of the Dead Sea?

Located 420 m below ocean level, the Dead Sea area is characterized by an increased atmospheric pressure and, as a result, an increased oxygen content (by 6%) in the air. The greater thickness of the atmospheric layer, combined with the high saturation of the evaporating vapors, leads to the absorption of the harmful short-wave spectrum of UV radiation. Medium and long wavelengths of the spectrum pass unhindered through the atmospheric layer. It is precisely by means of medium waves (UV spectrum B) that psoriasis is treated in the Dead Sea , since they are the main active agent of phototherapy for psoriasis. 

In addition to the increased oxygen content, the air of the Dead Sea is rich in minerals. It contains the smallest crystals of iodine, bromine, magnesium, sodium salts, which have a beneficial effect on the general condition of the body.

The Dead Sea is the saltiest in the world. Its water, in fact, is a solution of salts, as a result of which it is oversaturated with useful minerals. You can lie quietly on the surface of the sea. Sea baths have a healing effect on psoriasis, its severe forms, and incredible psoriatic arthritis!

The dry climate of the Dead Sea plays an equally therapeutic role. Precipitation is rare here. Temperature fluctuations throughout the year are very small. The absence of vegetation excludes the factor of allergization of the organism, which aggravates the course of the disease.

Specificity of treatment

Treatment at the Dead Sea gives a positive result in the following forms of psoriasis: plaque , inverse, teardrop, psoriasis of the palms and feet. The sunbathing regime in the resorts of Israel has specific features. Their optimal duration has been calculated – no more than 6 hours a day.

In addition, effective treatment of psoriasis in the Dead Sea with long-term, persistent remission requires a combination of UV irradiation with instrumental phototherapy and drug treatment. Sun exposure begins with a few minutes a day, gradually increasing its duration to 6 hours in two doses. The best time for sunbathing is morning and afternoon. Bathing is prohibited during the first days of treatment. It can worsen the condition of the skin. On the following days, sunbathing is taken after 20 minutes of bathing.  

The combination of natural phototherapy with modern hardware techniques and with the use of local therapy with special ointments developed here, from the natural resources of the Dead Sea, greatly enhances the effect of treatment, reduces the time spent in the hospital, and allows you to achieve a long stable remission.

The latest techniques and drugs for the treatment of psoriasis

Dr. Hooman-Khorasani

To date, there is no cure for this unpleasant disease – psoriasis. But then the “magic” treatment of psoriasis drugs of incredible healing power are actively offered by various scammers and swindlers of all stripes. The action of such drugs is solely to suppress the immune system. People who decide on such a therapy, perhaps, get rid of flaws in the skin, but the positive effect is temporary at best, and then psoriasis recurs with triple strength.   

Psoriasis treatments

Neither self-medication nor trust in advertising for miracle cures is strongly recommended. Be sure that if a drug appears that can completely cure psoriasis, its developers will be awarded the Nobel Prize, and the whole world will know about it from the official news. But today there are effective methods of struggle that allow you to constantly keep psoriasis under control.

For a mild form of psoriasis, it is enough to use local external therapy aimed at eliminating itching, flaking of the skin and relieving inflammation. Such treatment is carried out with the help of ointments containing salicylic acid, tar, solid oil or medicinal creams with topical glucocorticosteroids .

It should be noted that the new hormonal drugs ( glucocorticosteroids ) do not have the same side effects as the first generation drugs. Many of them are prescribed even to infants. For the treatment of psoriasis, these drugs are used in especially severe cases, and always in combination with gentle systemic methods of exposure.  

Common means of systemic therapy (methotrexate, retinoids , etc.) are prescribed mainly during the progression of the disease. Currently, for the treatment of severe forms of psoriasis, agents are being developed that are obtained using biotechnological methods, the so-called genetically engineered biological drugs. They are at the stage of implementation into widespread practice.

Hardware treatment

One of the newer treatments for chronic skin diseases is cryotherapy. This is a method of physiotherapy, which was met with hope by doctors and has become one of the most effective ways to combat psoriatic pathologies. The effect is based on the law of physics: “At low temperatures, the body shrinks.” Under the influence of vapors of liquefied gas temperature 130 of C, psoriatic plaques were reduced in volume, just cut off at the base, the blood flow in the skin capillaries is reduced depriving food affected areas. In this case, the patient experiences sensations comparable to short-term contact with cold water, no more. 

Unfortunately, this method of treatment is not suitable for everyone. For patients with cardiovascular diseases or respiratory pathologies, drugs are prescribed as an effective treatment for psoriasis, taking into account concomitant diseases. Cryotherapy is contraindicated in such patients.  

Another of the new methods of treatment – PUVA-therapy or photochemotherapy – is a type of phototherapy, which is a combined effect on the skin of special drugs aimed at increasing the body’s sensitivity to ultraviolet rays and UV radiation. Simply put, the patient takes the medicine internally or applies it to the skin, and after 1.5-2 hours “tans” under ultraviolet rays for several minutes. Reduction of psoriatic eruptions is observed in 70% of cases

Since most of the results of PUVA therapy are positive, we can talk about its effectiveness in combating the manifestations of psoriasis. For minors, pregnant women and for a number of patients with chronic diseases, PUVA therapy is categorically contraindicated.

How is psoriasis treated? Reviews of modern techniques

Psoriasis is a chronic condition characterized by the appearance of red, scaly plaques on the skin. The disease is not contagious, but chronic, affecting the skin, nails, joints and liver. Absolutely any person can develop psoriasis, regardless of age and lifestyle.

Methods used to treat psoriasis

Today, for the treatment of psoriasis, a huge range of different methods are used that can normalize the life cycle of skin cells, and, therefore, alleviate the patient’s condition. Balneotherapy is very popular today, which is one of the methods of treating a disease such as psoriasis. Reviews of this technique are the most positive. The essence of the balneological treatment consists in the use of therapeutic mud, mineral water, in combination with sun and air baths.  

External treatment is actively and very successfully used to combat the external manifestations of psoriasis. Reviews received from patients regarding the use of medicinal ointments and creams are not always unanimous, since the effect of the use of one or another remedy is different, depending on the individual characteristics of the patient’s body with psoriasis. In this case, local preparations are used that reduce the inflammation and flaking on the surface of psoriatic plaques. The composition of such drugs includes salicylic acid, sulfur, urea, dithranol , wood or coal tar. For the treatment of psoriasis of the scalp, lotions with a similar composition are used. 

For effective treatment of psoriasis, an individual approach to each patient is required, since the disease proceeds differently in each individual case. It so happens that in order to eliminate the symptoms of psoriasis, the doctor has to experiment or combine various techniques and therapies in order to achieve the most positive result.

If psoriasis is mild and at an early stage of development, the patient is prescribed mild drugs that have virtually no side effects. And in the event that the therapy undertaken did not have the desired effect, the specialist changes the treatment strategy and recommends taking drugs with a stronger effect. From the entire arsenal of drug therapy used to treat psoriasis disease , positive reviews are received by such drugs as various steroids, vitamin D3, Methotrexate and Cyclosporin. But you need to use them in treatment very carefully and only under the guidance of the attending physician, since most drugs have a lot of side effects.   

Traditional methods of treatment

Before starting the alternative treatment of psoriasis, you need to consult with your doctor, who will tell you which method is approved for use, safe and effective. Here are several recipes for home treatment for psoriasis as an example:

Infusion of celandine herb. To prepare the infusion, you need to take a salt spoon of the herb and pour boiling water over it, put it to infuse for 20 minutes, after which the resulting medicine must be taken before meals in an amount of 50 ml.

The infusion from the series is prepared as follows: a tablespoon of the herb is taken, poured into a glass of boiling water, and set aside for an hour for brewing. After the infusion, take a tablespoon, four times a day.

Compresses of propolis and grated potatoes, which must be applied every day to the affected area, have a good effect.

As you can see, today there is a huge selection of different methods and means to combat psoriasis, the effectiveness of each of which depends on the degree and nature of the course of the disease. Therefore, there is no need to try to overcome this ailment on your own, only a specialist can prescribe the necessary treatment.

Psorinohel – effective treatment for psoriasis

Psoriasis refers to non-infectious skin diseases, but in essence it is unpleasant and not aesthetic for a person. In medical terms, this disease is called psycho-somatic , and the dominant role is given to autoimmune disorders. Unfortunately, our medicine does not have specific means and methods for curing psoriasis. Medicines and therapeutic methods can only remove the symptoms of the disease, minimize human suffering and transfer the disease for a long time to the stage of remission.  

Homeopathic treatments

The low effectiveness of long-term treatment and the need for taking chemical drugs, which have a large list of side effects, forces patients to look for alternative methods of treatment. Today it is homeopathy that is the most effective of all the alternative therapies presented.

This method of treating psoriasis fully takes into account all the features of the manifestation of psoriasis and a variety of causal factors, since homeopathic remedies are selected for each patient individually, according to his constitution. When a patient is treated with homeopathic treatment , the whole organism is reconfigured. In other words, self-regulation begins, the restoration of the disturbed balance by the body’s own forces. Such treatment is carried out with organotropic agents that have a specific effect on the affected organs, and also improve the physical and psycho-emotional state of a person. 

Homeopathic medicines help to increase the patient’s immunity, normalize the gastrointestinal tract, and stabilize the function of the entire body system. As practice shows, homeopathy is easy to use and has a beneficial effect on all vital functions of a person.

Treatment of psoriasis with Psorinohel

Homeopathic treatment is highly effective with the combined action of drugs such as Psorinohel which are sold in a pharmacy without a prescription. The drug actively affects the internal forces of the body, reduces inflammatory processes, regulates the immune mechanism, and regenerates tissues.  

For therapeutic treatment, it has a broad spectrum of action. Psorinohel is prescribed for patients suffering from various degenerative, dermatological and other diseases. The medicine is used not only for the treatment of psoriasis, but also as an additional agent in the treatment of internal organs, combined with skin diseases. Keep in mind, Psorinohel , can provoke an exacerbation of the disease. But you should not be afraid of this. If the rash on the body intensifies, you must immediately reduce the dose of the drug. This is due to the evacuation of toxic substances from tissues. 

The drug comes in the form of drops and is administered orally or sublingually . You can hold a few drops under the tongue or dissolve in 5 ml of water. The daily dose is different for each age. In Psorinohelya no specific contraindications and side effects, so it can be used to treat psoriasis in children from the age of two.

Due to the fact that Psorinohel is a very strong drug and has the ability to affect the entire body, the scheme and course of treatment should be selected and developed by a specialist, taking into account the characteristics and condition of your body.  

Harmlessness and effectiveness are the main ingredients of homeopathic alternative treatment. An important advantage is the dynamism, the possibility of using it for pregnant women, debilitated patients and patients who cannot tolerate conventional medications.
