Getting an appropriate psoriasis treatment is important if you have this condition. In severe cases, your joints can become inflamed. Additionally, psoriasis is a type of skin inflammation that can disable you and affect your quality of life. Symptoms of psoriasis on the skin include widespread redness, severe itching and pain. To know if you have this condition or not, you will need to seek a skin specialist for a proper diagnosis.
Unfortunately there is no known cure for psoriasis. Most often the short-term treatments available for this disease centre on the use of drugs. Unfortunately, these treatments will only clear up your psoriasis for a short period of time. A natural psoriasis treatment can also be used. Of course, all of these treatments have pros and cons, so it is best to ask your doctor for some help and guidance in getting a suitable psoriasis treatment.
You should know that there are 3 main types of treatment.
1. Topical treatments can be applied to your skin if you have a mild to moderate case of psoriasis.
2. Photo treatments are used if you have a moderate to severe cases of psoriasis. This includes light, usually ultraviolet light, being applied to your skin.
3. Systemic treatments are available if you have a moderate to disabling form of psoriasis. This treatment is taken either orally, by injection or by infusion. One such product is Theraflax.
4. A new alternative psoriasis treatment is with the use of a fish known as “Doctor fish” (or Garra rufa). This is a type of fish that live and breed in outdoor pools of some Turkish spas. You should know that this is not an exact treatment but some patients have reported success with this alternative psoriasis treatment method.
Until the past 10 years, psoriasis remained an under-researched condition. What is known is that researchers have discovered that psoriasis is somewhat genetic, affecting people between 15 and 35 years old. In time, hopefully, with more research and greater understanding, an effective psoriasis treatment or real cure can be found.
