How do I treat it?
The 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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
