Calm red, itchy and inflamed skin with psoriasis treatments.
When dry skin symptoms won’t disappear, you could be dealing with psoriasis. This condition leaves skin dry, scaly, itchy, inflamed and just plain uncomfortable. The good news is you can easily soothe these symptoms with psoriasis treatments and creams. We’re here to help you build a psoriasis skin care routine that works.
Psoriasis is caused by an auto-immune disorder where the immune system sends signals that tell skin cells to grow too quickly. This means the body cannot shed these skin cells fast enough. Instead, the cells pile up on the skin’s surface, causing patches of red, thickened skin with silvery scales. Psoriasis is most commonly found on the scalp, knees, elbows and lower back. Something as simple as a common cold or even stress could cause a psoriasis flare-up. Learn how stress affects your skin.
Managing these symptoms is easy with a psoriasis skin care routine. Look for gentle, soap-free cleansers that will not irritate your sensitive skin. It also helps to moisturize as soon as you step out of the shower, while skin is still damp. Regular moisturizers can provide quick relief, but psoriasis treatments are better in the long run. Look for ingredients like hydrocortisone, which will help relieve itching and inflammation. To treat scalp psoriasis, look for a treatment shampoo with coal tar or salicylic acid.
