Psoriasis and clothing Psoriasis and the right clothing For those with psoriasis clothing choices are not about finding a style, comfort or fitting the kind of work; it’s choosing garments that help relieve the symptoms and not aggravate them. How do you choose the right clothing that will soothe the discomfort, manage pain, and limit the bleeding and distress associated with psoriasis?

 

For most people, the act of getting dressed may seem pretty routine but for those suffering from this complex skin disease it is neither routine nor should it be underestimated. For those suffering from psoriasis, clothing choices are not just about finding a style that suits you, is comfortable or fits the kind of work you do; you must choose garments that help relieve the symptoms of the disease and not aggravate them. 

 

Psoriasis and clothing: how to make the right choice?

 

Some fabrics may worsen the condition of irritation and inflammation of the skin caused by the disease. Moreover, psoriasis sufferers often end to choose clothing that may mask the symptoms and risk of triggering dangerous vicious circles that bring no relief to the skin condition. Patients suffering from psoriasis have dry skin areas or very itchy, irritated or desquamated plaques. In these areas, the skin tends to bleed easily. Clothing may stick to areas where the skin is dry and cracked, further contributing to irritation and bleeding.

 

Psoriasis and clothing: 5 golden rules

How can the clothes you choose to wear be important for handling psoriasis better? How do you choose the right clothing that will soothe the discomfort, manage pain, and limit the bleeding and distress associated with psoriasis? Here are five golden rules:

  1. Choose cotton. Compared to other fabrics, cotton is fresher and tends to irritate the skin less. Try to wear light cotton clothes in contact with the skin as often as you can and 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.
  2. Use scent-free laundry detergent. Detergents may also have an effect on the symptoms of psoriasis. Good advice for psoriasis sufferers: choose scent-free and delicate detergents and softeners. Choose liquid detergents rather than solid ones because they dissolve better and it is less likely that detergent particles will remain attached to fabrics and subsequently come into contact with the skin.
  3. Choose comfort. Tight clothing can worsen the symptoms of psoriasis. "Comfort is a very important issue for people with psoriasis. If a piece of clothing is too tight, for example, it rubs on a skin lesion and it can cause more pain or irritate the wounds," Dr. Bebo explains. So, choose loose clothing and undergarments whenever possible, for example boxers instead of briefs.
  4. Choose clear pastel colors. Wear pastel colors to minimize the visibility of the skin that becomes cracked. If you are concerned about skin flakes that can be seen on your clothing, remember that light colors hide skin flakes better than dark colors.
  5. Finally, if you feel the need to hide the lesions of psoriasis ... A survey by the National Psoriasis Foundation found that 40 percent of patients reported choosing clothes that would hide the signs of psoriasis. On days when you do not want to have to deal with people's reactions, keep in mind that a long-sleeved shirt, long pants and a strategically placed scarf definitely reduce the number of unwanted glances. But be aware that wearing too many layers can make you feel too warm, increasing sweating and worsening the condition of your skin: try to choose your clothes wisely and re-read the other four tips.
