Psoriasis is a difficult malady to deal with. Not all treatments work for everyone. Some work only once and never again. In fact; most people don’t know why they have it. It isn’t hereditary,or communicable-you can’t give it to anyone else. Many people get really frustrated with it because there is no cure. What a good thing that there are some natural plants and roots that can give you some relief for this scaly and itchy problem.
Normally our skin renews itself once a month. The psoriasis sufferer’s skin has an accelerated process that completes the cycle in 3 days with no stopping it.
They have layer after layer that comes to the surface and are called plaques. They are red and very itchy. Layer after layer dies and turns white,flaky, and scaly.
People suffer with cycles of flare ups and stops. Winter seems to be the worst season for it. Some people go for long periods without any.

Most doctors will tell you to seek intense sun as it is very healing. Use sunscreen to protect the rest of your body. 95% improve from just this.
Baths and heated swimming pools are great for psoriasis as they flatten plaque and cuts down on the scaling. Hot water can actually make the itching worse. Use an ice pack or a bag of frozen peas for some comfort.
Try UVA sunlamps. They are the same lamps used in tanning beds.
