Topical treatment:

Psoriasis is a disease on the skin, a layman would obviously think of getting it treated by applying some form of topical application like ointment on the skin. The use of the local application is called topical therapy. The medicines used on the skin may be in any form such as the use of immunosuppressive medicines, such as cortisone, herbal oil, antibacterial cream, moisturizer, and other topical applications.

Dr. Rajesh Shah’s views on topical treatment:

“It must be noted, as I am always saying, that psoriasis is a disease on the skin, and it is not a disease of the skin. This means that psoriasis is a disease of the internal, immunological system, which manifests on the skin. The topical treatment is going to be short-lasting and superficial. Let us not forget the different types of psoriasis which can be mild, moderate, and extensive in nature, the topical therapy is not a treatment of choice in moderate and extensive cases of psoriasis which covers the entire body, especially in guttate psoriasis,” says Dr Shah.

Our experience, based on a few thousand cases treated at Life Force, states that with psoriasis treatment (or any skin disease for that matter) by topical method, the disease invariably relapses or comes back.

Conventional medicine (immunosuppressive) medicines: Conventional medicines or so-called allopathic or modern medicine use more of the following medicines, all of them are immunosuppressive medicine in some way or the other.

  • Psoralen (with or without P-UV rays) (Oral)
  • Cortisone (Oral, injections, topical)
  • Methotrexate (Oral)
  • Cyclosporine (Oral)
  • Retinoids (Oral)
  • Biologicals

6 Effective Health Tips For Psoriasis:

  1. Resist Scratching:

You may feel an urge to scratch your inflamed, red, itchy, and patchy skin resulting from psoriasis. However, scratching your skin will only aggravate the condition, damage your skin, and give rise to infection. So, avoid scratching your psoriasis-affected skin. Make sure you have short nails and use hand gloves to avoid scratching. Consult one of our professional doctors at the Lifeforce team for psoriasis treatment to control your itching effectively with natural solutions. 

  1. Reduce Stress:

Most often, chronic psoriasis sufferers are vulnerable to anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, and suicidal thoughts. So, you need to relieve your stress to help regulate your condition. Joining a support group or going for counseling at Lifeforce can help

  1. Eat Healthily:

Eating healthy food is also a part of psoriasis treatment to regulate the flare-ups. You need to eat foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as fish like salmon, tuna, mackerel, and others, garlic, fresh fruits, carrot, kale, squash, and other fresh vegetables to regulate the inflammation. Avoid gluten foods in your diets, such as bread and pasta, as they may trigger the flare-up. Drink a lot of water daily. Also, you need to get plenty of sleep and perform exercises regularly.

  1. Have Warm Baths:

Avoid hot water baths and go for warm baths, as hot water may irritate your skin. Add Epsom salt and soothing olive oil to your lukewarm bathing water as it helps soothe your itching and offers you great relief.

  1. Avoid Triggers:

Avoiding psoriasis triggers supports psoriasis treatment, as it helps you minimize the chances of flare-ups. Figure out your psoriasis triggers, such as foods, medications, stress, or weather, and stay away from them to regulate the risks of a flare-up.

  1. Stop smoking and avoid/limit alcohol:

Make sure you stay away from alcohol and smoking, as smoking and heaving drinking can interrupt the remission periods, mitigate the effect of psoriasis treatment, and trigger the flare-ups easily. Get help from your doctor to quit smoking and regulate your drinking.

Side-Effects of other Psoriasis Treatments:

While psoriasis treatment at Life Force is 100% safe, opting for various treatments can affect your health adversely. Here are some side-effects of conventional treatments.

  • Retinoids: Even though retinoids treat psoriasis symptoms effectively, the symptoms return when you stop using them. Its side effects are lip inflammation, loss of hair, and birth defects in newborns if consumed during pregnancy.
  • Cyclosporine: Side effects of cyclosporine when used as psoriasis treatment are a weakened immune system, high blood pressure, and kidney problems.
  • Methotrexate: The long-term use of methotrexate can cause a significant reduction in white and red blood cells in your body and liver damage.
  • PUVA: Itching, burning, and nausea are some common side effects of PUVA.

Many of our patients at Life Force have been taking long-term steroids with or without relief with flare-ups before they consult us. With the Psoriasis Treatment Plan at Life Force, we have successfully delivered long-lasting results to such patients with relief.
