Psoriasis typically affects the outside of the elbows, knees or scalp, though it can appear at any location. Some people report that psoriasis is itchy, burns and stings. Psoriasis is associated with other serious health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease and depression. Psoriasis patches can range from a few spots of dandruff-like scaling to major eruptions that cover large areas. The most commonly affected areas are the lower back, elbows, knees, legs, soles of the feet, scalp, face and palms. Most types of psoriasis go through cycles, flaring for a few weeks or months, then subsiding for a time or even going into remission. In a natural way.
Psoriasis signs and symptoms can vary from person to person. Common signs and symptoms include:
Red patches of skin covered with thick, silvery scales
Small scaling spots
Dry, cracked skin that may bleed or itch
Itching, burning or soreness
Thickened, pitted or ridged nails
Swollen and stiff joints
Homeopathy Solution In a natural way.:
Psoriasis is a chronic condition. You may have flare-ups, with clear periods in between. There’s no cure, but you can manage symptoms with treatment.
Some of the most commonly touted homeopathic treatments for psoriasis includes:
Sepia is used by some people who practice homeopathy for widespread psoriasis and dry skin. However, there’s no scientific evidence that it’s an effective treatment.
Anecdotal evidence suggests that arsenicum benefits people with dry, scaly skin made worse by itching and better by applying heat. There’s no scientific evidence that it helps with psoriasis.
It’s also arsenic-based, so it can be dangerous if it contains more of the active ingredient than stated.
Calcarea carbonica, which is made from shells, is used in homeopathy to treat many illnesses, particularly in people who are often cold and get tired easily.
Research shows that people with psoriasis have low levels of calcium in their blood, but there’s only anecdotal evidence supporting the use of calcarea carbonica for this condition.
An animal study has suggested that staphysagria may be anti-inflammatory, but there’s only anecdotal evidence of it being effective for people with psoriasis. It’s mostly used in homeopathy for scalp psoriasis.
Mercurius solubilis is a type of mercury, which is toxic to ingest or put on your skin. High exposures can even cause kidney failure, respiratory issues, and death. There’s no scientific evidence that mercurius solubilis is a safe or effective treatment for psoriasis.
Rhus toxicodendron is poison ivy. There’s mixed evidence that it helps with arthritis and, therefore, psoriatic arthritis. However, there’s only anecdotal evidence that it can help with other symptoms of psoriasis, under the theory “like cures like.”
Mezereum is a flowering shrub used in homeopathy for thick, crusty plaques. It’s poisonous to humans when ingested or put on the skin. There’s no scientific evidence that mezereum is a safe or effective treatment for psoriasis.
Graphites are used in homeopathy for people with long-term skin disorders and leathery, cracked skin. There’s only anecdotal evidence that it can help psoriasis symptoms.
There’s anecdotal evidence that sulfur reduces skin lesions and itching. Although using sulfur alone as a homeopathic treatment is unproven, it may be mixed with proven psoriasis treatments, such as coal tar or salicylic acid.
