If you have psoriasis, and you are thinking about possible treatments for this disease, you will be interested in this article. The method that will be discussed in this article is called phototherapy for psoriasis , and it belongs to one of the most effective options for the hardware treatment of chronic inflammatory skin diseases. There is an accepted classification of psoriatic disease, which takes into account all types and varieties of psoriasis. The phototherapy method is most often used to treat exudative, psoriasis vulgaris, as well as the palmar-plantar type of the disease. Phototherapy treatment can be used in combination with other therapies to achieve the most effective results. 

The essence of the technique

Phototherapy, as a method of treating psoriasis, appeared in Russia quite recently. This is due to the fact that the equipment for carrying out the procedures is quite expensive, but today many clinics successfully cope with the task of purchasing the necessary devices. Today, phototherapy for psoriasis is a method of treatment that is used universally and quite successfully.  

If a doctor prescribes apparatus therapy for you in the treatment program, then you will need to undergo a course of 24 procedures. On average, 3 procedures are carried out weekly, but sometimes their number is reduced, depending on which device and with what equipment the therapy is carried out. The number of phototherapy treatments also depends on the severity of the psoriasis, that is, on the size and depth of the psoriatic plaques. The duration of one procedure is from 20 to 40 minutes.

The equipment for the procedures is different. In some cases, a booth with mirrored walls is used. Inside the booth, special devices generate ultraviolet waves of a certain length and intensity, which affect the affected skin areas of a patient with psoriasis. If psoriasis has struck the scalp, then the device for phototherapy treatment looks like a small comb and can be used even at home. If psoriatic plaques are small and localized in certain areas of the body, then the irradiation procedure is carried out with a mobile device. The choice of equipment is determined for each patient individually, depending on the type and degree of development of psoriasis.

Types of phototherapy

There are several types of phototherapy. These are PUVA therapy, narrow band light therapy and selective phototherapy. Significant differences between these techniques are that the devices used in therapy induce ultraviolet radiation of different intensity and wavelength.

As an additional element of treatment when undergoing PUVA therapy, the patient is prescribed photosensitizers, drugs that promote better absorption of ultraviolet doses by the skin.

Selective phototherapy, although used in the treatment of skin diseases, is not the best option for psoriasis, since it does not always lead to positive results.

The principle of narrow-band phototherapy is based on the surface effect of ultraviolet rays on the epidermis. In this case, the deep layers of the skin are not affected, therefore this type of apparatus therapy is most suitable for the treatment of psoriatic disease.

Phototherapy for psoriasis is a treatment method that has both positive and negative sides. The negative effects of the procedure are conventionally divided into early and late (or late). Early effects manifest themselves directly during the procedure. You may notice itching, increased dryness of the skin, redness of those areas that have been exposed to ultraviolet radiation. Long-term effects are those side effects of the procedure that you will feel a little later. Long-term effects include photoaging and persistent pigmented changes in the skin.

Any disease not only brings a feeling of fatigue and weakness, but also morally oppresses a person. This feeling is especially true for patients with psoriasis. Since spots are formed on the body that do not look aesthetically pleasing, many patients begin to be ashamed of their body, becoming especially picky about their appearance. Yes, psoriasis can be cured. For example, with the help of folk remedies, you can significantly improve both the external and internal state of a person.

“Insidious” psoriasis

Usually, exacerbations of the disease are spontaneous. The extent of the extent of psoriasis skin lesions can differ significantly in the same person during remission and relapse. It happens that during remission, the affected areas are almost invisible, and when the period of exacerbation comes, the number of plaques increases dramatically. In most cases, psoriasis is inherited. Less commonly, you can get psoriasis due to the virus and strong nervous tension.

There are several forms of psoriasis. One of them is psoriasis spotty. This is the most common form of the disease. About eighty percent of the total number of psoriasis diseases are cases of spotted psoriasis. It is distinguished by the appearance of small pink or red spots covered with white scales. The spots get bigger over time. Spotted psoriasis often appears on the knees, neck, and on the head under the hair.

It is still impossible to completely cure this disease. Herbal treatment for psoriasis helps a little to extinguish the flame of the disease , and it is recommended to carry it out at any stage of the development of the disease. 

Herbal infusions, baths and fees for the treatment of psoriasis

Traditional medicine offers herbal treatment for psoriasis locally , using various ointments, lotions, compresses, herbal decoctions and baths with the addition of herbal infusions. Some herbal preparations must be taken orally.

A decoction from a collection of herbs for internal use. To prepare the broth, take two tablespoons of elderflower flowers, elecampane root, corn stigmas, horsetail herb and lingonberry leaf. In addition, you should add a tablespoon of celandine and three tablespoons of a string, calamus and St. John’s wort. Pour all the herbs with 4 liters of boiling water, hold on the fire for 5-7 minutes and leave for about an hour. After the broth, strain and drink one hundred grams forty minutes after eating.

Collection of herbs for lotions. For external use, herbal treatment of psoriasis is used with lotions from the collection of herbs. A decoction of string, marsh calamus, burdock root and licorice root, as well as nettle leaves. All herbs must be taken in equal quantities. Pour boiling water over the mixture, at the rate of one glass of water per spoonful of the herbal mixture. The broth must be insisted for some time and can be used for lotions or simply lubricate sore spots.  

Sophora tincture. Eases the general condition with psoriasis and helps in the treatment of tincture of the Japanese plant – Sophora. To prepare it, you will need fifty grams of Sophora and half a liter of vodka. Pour the plant with vodka and put in a dark place for one month. After that, you need to take a teaspoon of tincture three times a day thirty minutes before meals. It is necessary to take the tincture for at least four months.

Patients with psoriasis need to follow a diet at all times. You can not eat fried food, a lot of flour and sweets. As far as possible, salt and spicy foods are excluded from the diet. To prevent the disease, it is necessary to lead a healthy lifestyle, amateur sports and dousing are mandatory. With the help of simple preventive measures, you can achieve good results and learn how to get along with psoriasis.

ASD fraction: psoriasis can be treated more effectively

Any diseases cause general weakness of the body, decreased immunity. In addition, the sick person’s emotional state changes. It is difficult to enjoy life when there are problems with health. This is especially true for diseases that cause difficulties in communicating with others. Such diseases, of course, include psoriasis. It most often appears in completely inappropriate places – on the arms and legs, under the armpits, in the elbow or knee bends, and the head. Getting rid of the disease will not only improve the normal functioning of the body, but also improve the emotional state of a person.

Treatment for psoriasis should always be comprehensive. The doctor prescribes medications for internal use, injections and topical preparations for the patient. Physiotherapy procedures are an indispensable part of the treatment. In folk medicine, there are also a huge number of recipes for the treatment of psoriasis.

Another alternative treatment for psoriasis is invented by scientists and produced in the laboratory. It is known as Dorogov’s antiseptic-stimulant or simply ASD. With the help of ASD, psoriasis , eczema, dermatitis and many other skin diseases can be cured. Its medicinal qualities became known more than half a century ago, since the drug was discovered in 1947 by a group of scientists led by Dorogov . 

What is ASD?

In the fifties of the last century, the government of the Soviet Union instructed scientists to create a universal medicine for the treatment of almost all diseases. For this, groups of specialists were formed, who began to work on the task at hand. I was lucky to complete the task and find such a drug for Dorogov’s group . Toads were chosen as raw materials for the production. By treating them with high temperatures, scientists collected a specific condensate, which had high antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and other beneficial properties.

Another liquid treatment was used to increase the concentration of the drug. There are ASD preparations of the second and third fractions, which should not be confused with each other. After all, ASD 2 is taken only internally with strict adherence to the regimen, and ASD 3 can be used only for external use.

Since drugs of the ASD fraction can cure psoriasis , dermatoses, eczema and many other diseases, even oncology, many wanted to appropriate his discovery. Dorogov did not agree to the conditions that were set for him, and the production of the drug was suspended. Today it remains a mystery why such an effective drug was not legalized and not used in treatment. Although there are different opinions among people about the effectiveness of the ASD drug. 

Psoriasis treatment with ASD

ASD drugs can successfully treat skin diseases, including psoriasis. For the treatment of psoriasis, ASD preparations of the second and third fractions are used. The course of treatment should include the mandatory use of both drugs and strict adherence to the instructions for their use.

ASD 2 must be taken orally. To do this, in one hundred grams of water, you need to dilute one or two drops of ASD 2 and take a solution half an hour before meals. You need to take the medicine three times a day. The course of taking the drug for psoriasis becomes five days. After this period, you must take a break for three days. After the course of treatment, repeat again.

To facilitate the external manifestation of the disease and its treatment, it is necessary to make lotions from the ASD solution of the third fraction. When treated with ASD drugs, psoriasis begins to decrease in a short time. The solution is prepared in the ratio of one part of the drug to twenty parts of water. From this solution, it is necessary to make lotions until complete recovery.  

Psoriasis is a disease with repulsive symptoms. Sometimes official medicine is unable to prevent the development of the disease, then folk and non-traditional methods of treatment are used, one of which is the treatment with ASD. Many people, after using it, forget about the disease forever. Of course, there are times when the drug is not effective. Perhaps the cause of the disease is different, and you need to look for these reasons, eliminate them, and only after that you start an intensified fight against psoriasis.

Signs of psoriasis: how to recognize the disease?

Dr. Hooman-Khorasani
Posted in Uncategorized

Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease of polyetiological nature. Genetic predisposition in the development of the disease is dominant. It is explained by several times increased growth of epidermal cells, a violation of the keratinization process and pathological T-cell immunity. Both men and women suffer from psoriasis. The disease has no age restrictions.

There are two main types of psoriasis. The first type is associated with a hereditary predisposition. It usually develops at a young age. The process is generalized . The second type is not associated with heredity, is localized in certain parts of the body, has a more favorable course. The disease begins after 50 years.

What do we see?

The pathological process is represented by a papulo- squamous rash. The primary element is a nodule (papule), the depth of occurrence is the border of the epidermis and dermis. Papules are located on unchanged skin and tend to merge. Psoriasis papules are covered with silvery white scales ( squam ). Over time, they disappear without a trace. The color of the rash is from pink to salmon. Shape – round, oval, annular, linear. A favorite place for rashes is the scalp, the extensor surfaces of the upper and lower extremities (“duty plaques”), the lumbosacral region, and the genitals.

In its course, the elements of the rash go through three stages:

1 – progressive

2 – stationary

3 – regressive

Signs of progressive psoriasis 

  • combination of old and new elements of the rash
  • the papule in its environment has a hyperemic corolla ( Pilnov’s symptom )
  • with trauma (scratching, burns, etc.), new rashes appear

The stages of development of psoriasis are characterized by the mandatory detection of the so-called Tsumbush psoriatic triad :

1. Stearin spot. When papular rashes are scraped, peeling increases, which gives the papule the appearance of a “stearin spot”.

2. Terminal film. With further scraping, the scales fall off. A wet, translucent, shiny surface remains in their place.

3. The phenomenon of “pinpoint bleeding” (the phenomenon of Auspitz or “blood dew” of Polotebnov ). After scraping the terminal film, punctate bleeding occurs, which are caused by trauma to the papillary layer of the dermis.

Depending on the shape, localization sites, and the degree of the disease, the signs of psoriasis may vary.  

Clinical symptoms

In case of damage to the hair and scalp, patients do not go to the doctor for a long time, since psoriatic rashes are hidden under the hair. The rash spreads to the parotid and frontal regions and forms a ” psoriatic crown”.

In children and the elderly, psoriasis is localized in the skin folds – the intertriginous form. In this case, there is no peeling, the color of the papules is bright red, the surface is moist and macerated . In appearance, it resembles a fungal infection of the skin.

In 25% of all cases of damage, signs of psoriasis are found on the nail plates. There is an increase in the nail plate due to the growth of horny masses, its surface is deformed and resembles a “thimble”. A yellow-white spot resembling spilled oil is visible under the nail. The shape of the nail resembles a “bird’s claw”; there may be small- spot subungual hemorrhages ( Leventhal’s symptom ).  

In severe advanced cases, psoriasis becomes systemic. Due to itching and scratching of the papules, a secondary infection joins, serous-purulent inflammation occurs, and abscesses (pustules) appear . Papules merge and form “purulent lakes”. This type of psoriasis is treated in an intensive care unit.

Currently, there is no convincing evidence that underlies the pathological process. A large share is occupied by genetic and viral theories, impaired immune response. Therefore, the treatment of patients with psoriasis is rather “palliative”. Despite the brightness of the clinical picture, psoriasis can be confused with other skin pathologies. Therefore, if such a rash is found, it is imperative to consult a dermatologist.

What will heal psoriasis? Salt that is always at hand!

Dr. Hooman-Khorasani

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

Posted in Uncategorized

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!

Although psoriasis is considered incurable, there are many ways and methods to treat psoriasis symptoms. For example, official drug therapy involves the use of different types of ointments and pharmacological preparations, formulations with hormones and antibiotics. People who do not want to “poison” their body with all kinds of pills and artificial hormonal ointments, resort to using natural remedies. The treatment of psoriasis with various medicinal herbs in the composition of compresses, medicinal tinctures and decoctions, ointments and creams is very common. In addition, very often in the treatment of psoriasis, birch or coal tar is the primary means of salvation from an aggravated disease.  

How does tar psoriasis treat?

In the search for remedies for psoriasis, many resort to the use of tar. There are two types of tar – coal tar and woody. Both types of natural natural products have found application in the treatment of various diseases, including psoriasis as one of the varieties of chronic skin diseases.

What effect will tar have on the body? Regular black tar will help the skin to heal and look healthy. Thanks to the use of tar in the composition of medicinal ointments, the swelling of the skin area affected by psoriasis will noticeably decrease and itching will gradually decrease. Tar psoriasis symptoms are treated for about 10 weeks. If you treat the inflamed areas of the skin with this amazing product for 10 weeks, then the skin condition will noticeably improve, the inflammation and dryness of the skin will disappear, psoriatic plaques will significantly decrease , the burning sensation will disappear and the itching will subside.

It is known that birch tar cures psoriasis . You can find it in the form of oil, in the composition of an ointment or cream, and even in the form of shampoo, which is very convenient if psoriatic plaques have affected the skin on the head.
