How do I treat it?

PsoriasisThe British Medical Association (BMA) and the American Medical Association (AMA) state clearly that there is no known psoriasis cure and alleviation is currently the only solution. If you read claims of cure elsewhere, bear this in mind.

Topical gels and creams , mild shampoos and conditioners

Treatment for psoriasis often involves topical application of ointments and creams. Moisturising creams or lotions can be very effective in soothing dry, flaky skin.  In mild cases an emollient can be enough to treat mild psoriasis it will reduce the risk of cracking and scaling of dry skin.

Katharine Botanicals are pleased to offer a psoriasis gel containing only natural active ingredients.  It is designed to soothe the skin and alleviate the symptoms of acne psoriasis, and other skin conditions, harnessing the power of essential oils to promote healing.

We have recently taken over the amazing Revivia product range, and are now marketing them under the Katharine Botanicals umbrella.

Revivia has an amazing record of helping people deal with the symptoms of Psoriasis, and of course if conforms to all the strict quality standards as the rest of the Katharine Botanicals range.

Visit our shop to find our psoriasis treatment gel, cream, shampoo and conditioner.

To read some reviews of this range, please take a look at our psoriasis treatment testimonials.

Medicated creams

If your symptoms do not respond to moisturising creams or lotions, or if your symptoms are more widespread, your doctor may provide you with a medicated cream.  This will be a moisturising cream with added ingredients, such as corticosteroids, vitamin D, or coal tar.

Scalp treatment

Due to the sensitive nature and difficulty of applying creams to the scalp, there are special lotions which a doctor may prescribe if your scalp is affected.  Katharine Botanicals offer a naturally medicated mild shampoo and conditioner which soothes your scalp as you wash your hair.  For more details, please visit our shop.

Phototherapy

For instances where psoriasis is widespread, your doctor might recommend phototherapy treatment.  This involves exposing your skin to controlled amounts of UVB light (found in sunlight) which encourages vitamin D production and has been found to ease symptoms effectively.

Oral treatment

In severe cases of widespread or non-responsive psoriasis, your doctor may prescribe tablets.  These would usually be immunosuppressants which will stop your immune system from instructing your skin to produce excess skin cells.

  • World Psoriasis Day: Take Part with a Testimonial

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin

    World Psoriasis Day takes place on the 29th of October each year and serves as a podium for people to experience psoriasis to offer their accounts of living with the condition. Though one of the first skin diseases to be recognised psoriasis continues to be misunderstood and those that experience it discover large amounts of misinformation available. World Psoriasis Day is attempting to combat this confusion by encouraging those who experience psoriasis to post pictures of themselves with testimonials.

  • Hug a Vegan This September

    Many consider a vegan lifestyle to be very rewarding and it's certainly easier on our environment. Whether you're aiming to eat nothing that comes from an animal or ensure that you're not using products that use animal products or participate in animal testing, these are all elements that reduce cruelty and pollution. Recent studies have shown that methane from livestock accounts for more greenhouse gasses in the UK than our roads and trains combined! And animal testing accounts for thousands of animals that are forced to endure discomfort for human cosmetic needs. This is why Katharine Botanicals offers a wide range of products that are entirely vegan.

    As the internet makes it easier for conscientious shoppers to make ethical choices, it's also easier than ever to discover the benefits of making these choices when you purchase. In fact, PETA recently held a celebration just for vegans called "hug a vegan day". Last year it was all about vegetarians and now vegans are getting the love from PETA! The official hug a vegan day was held last Friday on the 27th of September but we feel that there is all the time in the world to show your appreciation for all the good things nature has to offer.

  • Sunlight and Benefits to Psoraisis

    Whilst the recent weather has been somewhat unpredictable, we can also say that this has been one of the brightest summers that the UK has enjoyed for some time. This is an excellent opportunity for suffers of psoriasis to enjoy sunlight and the vitamin D that comes with it. Vitamin D and ultra violet light are both completely natural elements that can help to soothe skin suffering from psoriasis. Ultra violet light is already used as a medical treatment by many doctors, where synthesised UVB rays are created with sun lamps. Injections are also utilised to encourage the skin to soak up even more of the beneficial UV light but I’m sure most would rather a natural course of sunbathing. This bright sunshine gives many who live with psoriasis the chance to enjoy a free and completely natural course of UV light and all the benefits that come with it.
