Many people with psoriasis report that they feel itching
associated with the disease. The act of scratching does not spread psoriasis but it interferes with healing, threatening to worsen the whole situation. How to avoid it? There are several things you
can do to manage the symptoms of psoriasis and keep the itching under control. Here's some advice that could make a difference:
- Prepare a bath with warm water and
It is well known that long showers with hot water dry out your
skin. Have a warm bath with oils. The water should not be too hot and remember to pat the skin dry rather than rubbing it. Finally gently apply an emollient cream and in sunny months, use a
sunscreen on your exposed skin.
You can also add to baking soda your bathwater because baking
soda helps to fight all types of widespread pruritus or hard to relieve itching and makes the skin softer and smoother.
The most common cause of itching is dry skin. The more water
you drink the more it’s absorbed by the skin. General advice is to consume at least 8 glasses of 250 ml of water each day. It is also a good idea to moisturize the skin with aloe vera which not only
has a moisturizing effect but the particular characteristic of being absorbed by the skin very quickly. It also has a significant anti-inflammatory effect, especially because of its antibacterial
properties which make it extremely useful for preventing and fighting infections.
If you have no other available remedies, apply a damp cloth or
a cold compress on the affected parts. You will experience a feeling of relief from the itching, even if it’s only temporary.
For most people, the act of getting dressed may seem pretty
routine, but for those who suffer from this complex skin disease it is neither routine nor can it be underestimated. For those suffering from psoriasis, clothing choices are not just about finding a
style that suits them, is comfortable or fits the kind of work they do; they need to find garments that can help relieve the symptoms of the disease, not aggravate
them. Compared to other fabrics, cotton tends to be fresher and less irritating on the skin. Try to wear light cotton clothes in
contact with the skin as often as you can; avoid fabrics such as wool and synthetics. Synthetic fabrics are to be avoided because they tend to overheat the skin, increasing perspiration, and
because they stick more to the desquamated and irritated areas.
- Use shower gel without perfumes or
Avoid perfumes, soaps, lotions, shampoos and any other beauty
products or toiletries with fragrances and/or chemicals; for many people these substances can be irritating and aggravate the itching. You should also do an extra rinse cycle when you wash garments
in the washing machine in order to remove any residual traces of detergent from the fibers. Another important aspect to consider is the exclusive use of organic and natural cleaning products, thereby
reducing exposure to chemicals as much as possible.
- Resist the urge to
Although it is easier said than done, you have to try as
much as possible not to scratch. This action will in fact irritate the skin by triggering the release of substances such as histamine and other cytokines, which enhance and extend the itchy area;
moreover, it stimulates the brain to release a chemical message that intensifies the itchiness. What's more, if you scratch and break the skin, you can cause infection and worsen the situation.
Eventually, if you continue to scratch for a long time, you can also alter the structure of the skin causing scarring, changes in the thickness of the epidermis (lichenification) and discoloration
To alleviate itchiness and tackle the underlying causes of your
psoriasis, contact your dermatologist. Emollient creams can soften the skin and keep it moist; also many topical therapies reduce both the itch and the inflammation.

One of the several testimonials that you can find visiting this site.
Marlene, January 25th, 2018. Five months after her testimonial, we have received the photos of Marlene. Let us remind you her statement on August, 2017.
"Having consulted so many dermatologists, continuing with cortisone and tar creams, with hands and feet closed in a plastic bag, with ankle skin detached along with
the bag with burning and hallucinating pain…
After the resignation felt by hearing people say that "psoriasis is a chronic disease and it does not heal, the cures are these"…
One day surfing on Internet together with a friend, looking for some other treatment, we came across the Psotherapy page and after almost three years of desperation I
said to myself "I will try this too". I decided to buy the product. My life with Psotherapy is a new one now…"
