  1. With psoriasis there is a problem somewhere on the conveyor belt, it used to be thought that it was an excessive production of horn cells, nowadays people think more of an autoimmune reaction as a result of the interaction between the T cells, dendritic cells and keratinocytes.

  2. There is a lot of information to be found about psoriasis, because people worldwide have to contend with this skin condition. For example, the Graham's skin care products from Australia are now also known in the Netherlands for treating psoriasis.

  1. That's why I also looked at how our Eastern neighbors treat psoriasis. Germany is a country with 82.5 million inhabitants, logically there are many more people in Germany who suffer from psoriasis.

  1. There may be products in Germany that are not yet known to us in the Netherlands, but that work well. In Germany, Salicylic Acid and Loyon are the remedies you will find on the various forums about psoriasis. Loyon is an unknown drug in the Netherlands, so you see again that you should not only look for possible solutions in Dutch.

  1. To help you control psoriasis as much as possible, it is important to know that you must first tackle the flakes on your skin and soak these flakes from the skin. Only then can you help restore the inflamed skin that was covered with flakes.

  1. Once you have your skin calm again, it is very important to keep this skin calm. You do this by taking extra care of your skin and by avoiding the stimuli that trigger psoriasis in you. This way you have the best chance of getting psoriasis under control.

Soaking off the epidermis

  1. To begin controlling psoriasis, the first step in psoriasis management is to soak the flakes off. The psoriasis flakes form a thick, hard plaque, the flakes have built up on your skin, and before you can care for the skin underneath, you need to get through that stubborn plaque of dander build-up.

  1. You can loosen the epidermis, the so-called epidermis, by applying keratolytics. This is the collective name for all epidermis removing (medicines) products. You have natural keratolytics and you have strong drugs.

  1. The drug that recently entered the market in Germany is Loyon. The active ingredient of Loyon is different from the regular keratolytics and is also patented. The ingredients of this medicine have no active ingredients like other medicines do.

  1. Loyon contains Dimeticon, a remedy that you can get in the Netherlands against head lice. The big advantage of Loyon is that you can apply it as a spray, it also works “mechanically”, which means that no bodily processes are affected except that the flakes on the psoriasis patches get away with it.

  1. It forms a kind of â € œsilicon layerâ € on the psoriasis flakes so that they do not dry out but retain the moisture.

  1. This medicine may therefore be used in children as well as pregnant women. I always prefer these remedies because they have a lot less negative effects on your health. In addition, the product is also suitable for long-term use because there are no unpleasant side effects such as thin skin.

  1. You cannot get this drug in the Netherlands, but on the major German websites such as Amazon.de you can order it and it can be delivered in the Netherlands.

  1. Salicylic acid is another agent that has a strong effect on loosening the flakes. This agent is extracted from willow bark and is also used in small quantities as a preservative by the food industry, it is also widely used in skin care products. To dissolve the flakes, 1% to 15% salicylic acid can be mixed into the cream.

  1. Please note, in large quantities this substance can be bad for your health.

  1. Now you would say that exfoliation is a very complicated process, but essentially all you do is replenish the dry psoriasis skin. You promote this by not letting moisture escape by applying a protective layer between the air and your skin. Because moisture returns from your body into the skin, the flakes loosen or disappear.

  1. On the other hand, try to get as much moisture as possible into the dry areas by, for example, soaking in a salt bath. The third option is to make the horny layer that makes up the flakes as thin as possible.

  1. Unfortunately that is easier said than done, but it is important that you know the exact mechanism for exfoliation of the skin.

  1. Very often people use vaseline or udder ointment, these are the first remedies that come to mind when you want dry skin to be oily again. Many people do benefit from udder cream or petroleum jelly, but it takes patience. You should let these ointments sit for at least an hour before the dander softens.

  1. In addition to Salicylic Acid or Loyon, there are other remedies that can help you restore moisture to the psoriasis patches. The other resources you have available include sodium chloride and urea.

  1. Sodium chloride has the fewest side effects, this is probably more familiar to you as table salt. Taking a warm bath with a few generous tablespoons of salt promotes soaking of the psoriasis patches, allowing more moisture to penetrate the patches.

  1. Urea can cause additional skin irritation and you should certainly not use it near your eyes or mucous membranes. But urea is a substance that is excreted by your kidneys during the breakdown of proteins, so it is natural in the body. Urea on your skin promotes the absorption of moisture, which reduces the flakes.

  1. In summary, in the above products in the order I wrote them down, I would start with the ones with the fewest side effects. If they don't help, you can switch to heavier medication, but I would use the stronger medication that your doctor usually prescribes in the Netherlands as a last resort.

  1. This is usually a corticosteroid ointment that suppresses the cell division of your skin so that the psoriasis has less chance to grow, because less skin cells are produced. The disadvantage is that you are immediately prescribed a strong-acting drug that suppresses the inflammatory response and quickly causes side effects such as thin skin.

Taking care of the affected skin with medication

  1. After you have reduced the flakes by getting moisture back into the psoriasis patches, you can gently remove the flakes and get to work soothing the skin that has been covered all this time. This can be done with the help of many different medications or aids, the most important thing is to protect the delicate skin well so that the inflammation (redness) can disappear.

  1. You can use medicines against the growth of flakes, you can also use light therapy or vitamins that inhibit the production of skin cells. It is important to use a protective cream every day to prevent your skin from drying out and having to deal with flakes again. The flakes are the first sign of a patch of psoriasis coming back.

  1. A great way to help the skin heal and become less prone to psoriasis is vitamin D. You can create vitamin D yourself by regularly enjoying the sun. Coal tar is hardly used anymore, but the only reason you can't go for a regular walk in the sun is a coal tar treatment.

  1. Apart from that treatment, it is advisable to regularly absorb half an hour of sunlight. Studies have shown that a vitamin D deficiency can play a major role in complaints such as flu but also psoriasis.

  1. In addition, vitamin D has a beneficial effect on the healing process itself. So if you put a synthetic form of vitamin D3 on the irritated psoriasis skin, these areas heal better.

  1. Retinoids is the collective name for derivatives of vitamin A acids. In addition to vitamin D, vitamin A is also closely related to psoriasis. The retinoids are often used in addition to other psoriasis treatment methods. However, these treatments with chemically simulated parts of vitamin A have a very big disadvantage. And that disadvantage is that you really shouldn't get pregnant if you are being treated with retinoids, there is a chance that you will have a deformed baby.

  1. From studies conducted in France among women receiving some form of retinoid treatment, it appears that the practitioners did not take this requirement of absolutely no pregnancy very seriously. Pregnancy tests were very rarely (10%) performed before starting treatment. Also during and the two years after treatment, there were hardly any regular pregnancy tests.

  1. This is an important factor to consider if you decide to be treated with retinoids, have regular pregnancy tests so that you can intervene in time should you unexpectedly become pregnant and don't want to take the risk of a deformed child!

  1. Dithranol is also a good means to control psoriasis, studies have shown that applying Dithranol once a day has the same effect as applying calcipotriol twice a day. A big disadvantage of Dithranol is that you have to be very careful with this ointment. This cell growth inhibitor can very quickly lead to irritation of the skin. This treatment is usually given in a day center, but more and more often you can simply carry out the treatment at home.

  1. The disadvantage of treating psoriasis with Dithranol is that you will get thick purple stains on your clothes, bedding and furniture, you can't get them out anymore, so be careful! The spots on your skin will disappear after a few weeks, the spots on your nails should grow out.

  1. This drug is no longer prescribed very often, but it can be very effective. Plus you don't have to worry about any pregnancies, this medicine has no known side effects in that regard.

  1. UV light therapies can also be used to stop cell division in the skin. You get methoxsalen capsules or you have to bathe in a bath with this solution for ten minutes. The methoxsalene binds to the DNA of your skin cells. This is done by means of the UV light with which you are irradiated. So this is how the well-known light therapy works.

  1. The disadvantage of light therapy is that you absolutely must not be or become pregnant during and up to three months after the therapy. The risk of complication in the baby is too great.

  1. These cortisone ointments are mainly used to reduce inflammation, itching and irritation. Cortisone also belongs to the group of hormone ointments. The main disadvantage of this ointment is the risk of permanent skin damage as it becomes thinner.

  1. Fortunately, you can safely use this medicine if you want to become or are pregnant.

  1. If you look at this list of medications, you will immediately notice that many of these medications are totally unsuitable if you are pregnant or want to become pregnant in the near future. The only drugs with no risks at all are actually vitamin D supplements or derivatives.

  1. The hormone ointments are safe when it comes to pregnancy, but with too much or long-term use this ointment can really damage your skin. So let's see if there are more natural alternatives that support your skin and help it recover from a psoriasis outbreak

Taking care of the skin with natural oils and creams

  1. The alternative to medication is that you use substances from nature that have the infection-inhibiting or regenerating properties, but not the side effects that the medication often has.

  1. As you may have known for a while, Grahams products are specifically aimed at repairing skin complaints based on creams that consist of 100% natural products. These are mainly vitamins, minerals and flavonoids. In a previous article I already explained Graham's skin products in more detail.

  1. Apple cider vinegar naturally has fungicidal and anti-inflammatory properties. You can use apple cider vinegar, especially when repairing and keeping damaged skin moist.

  1. Tea tree oil also has naturally antibacterial components. In addition to naturally fighting inflammation in the skin, the fatty oil also helps to keep your skin protected and moist.

  1. Aloe Vera is known for its skin conditioning. It's good for your hair, it's good for wrinkles and so on. Partly because the big boys of the skin and hair care industry got off with Aloe Vera, the effect of this plant is sometimes underestimated or forgotten, after all nowadays it is everywhere, so it is no longer special.

  1. Aloe Vera is not only nourishing for your skin, it does have anti-inflammatory properties.

Supporting the skin and keeping psoriasis free by eliminating external triggers caused by diet or lifestyle

  1. Many autoimmune reactions and apparently inexplicable disorders originate from an allergic reaction. You can get the most violent reactions through food. This is because you get food into your body.

  1. The stuff you are allergic to must pass through your entire digestive tract and even after that your body can still suffer from what you are allergic to because it has now been broken down by your digestion and in you. bloodstream.

  1. It is common knowledge that eating a lot of sugar is not good for your skin. You can get pimples and inflammation. But a lot of sugar is no more beneficial to the skin if you have psoriasis.

  1. Only your weak spot on your skin is not acne or rosacea, you will suffer from psoriasis with too many fast sugars in your diet. The biggest improvement you can make to your diet is to reduce all those fast sugars that you find in all that processed food. This diet does not contain nutrients but ballast substances.

  1. Refined or artificial sugar is not food but fuel! And when fuel is burned, harmful substances are released.

  1. The big culprit when it comes to psoriasis and dairy is that you have lactose intolerance without realizing it. Your digestive system is unable to process the lactose found in all dairy products. This can manifest itself through stomach and intestinal complaints, but it can also manifest itself in the form of psoriasis.

  1. The only option is to test if you indeed have a lactose intolerance. You can have this done by your doctor, you can also stop eating dairy and see if your symptoms decrease.

  1. You can be allergic to some of the gluten, because there are two types of gluten or you are allergic to both types of gluten. With a partial gluten intolerance you can often still eat rice, corn or teff. People with total gluten intolerance cannot tolerate any cereal and will have to follow a gluten-free diet to stop the body's autoimmune response.

  1. Gluten-free are animal products, vegetables, fruit, buckwheat, quinoa, wild rice, sunflower seeds and soybeans. As you can see, your diet is then drastically reduced.

  1. You can stop eating gluten, but it is wiser to get tested by a doctor first to see if you indeed have an intolerance. Firstly, because you make life unnecessarily difficult for yourself, gluten-free is not an easy diet. Second, if you take the test at a later time, you will trigger a very severe allergic reaction because your body has not had gluten for a long time.

  1. Stress is a major cause of many health complaints. The stress hormones put your immune system on inactive. This increases the risk of chronic complaints such as skin complaints that do not decrease or an increase in inflammation levels.

  1. Your immune system works at a fraction of its normal capacity, so problems that are normally not an issue can suddenly become chronic. For example, chronic stress can also express itself as psoriasis.

  1. Alcohol has a dehydrating effect. And that hydration of the skin is a problem if you suffer from psoriasis. Drinking alcohol will only make the fluid deficiency worse. So if you suffer from psoriasis, you should do everything you can to promote the moisture balance of your skin. This can be done by forgoing alcohol, drinking more water or moisturizing your skin from the outside.

  1. Just like alcohol, smoking is a very unhealthy habit. It ages your skin and ensures that your skin is less supple and that your blood circulation is affected over time. Smokers are three times more likely to get psoriasis than non-smokers. If you suffer from psoriasis, smoking is an unhealthy habit and it is best to leave it.

Finally:

  1. Of course, there are considerable disadvantages to certain drugs, but that does not mean that you should take these risks. Before you get to the point that you start using these horse remedies, you can of course make a lot of improvements in your lifestyle, nutrition and skin care. The essence of psoriasis is skin that is overly dry and flaking and therefore inflamed.

  1. So you have two options for combating psoriasis: fighting dryness and reducing the inflammatory response.

  1. You fight inflammation with a healthy lifestyle so that your body provides your immune system with energy. Avoid stress as much as possible. Eat foods that provide you with all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants you need. In addition, you leave out the empty calories or the bulking substances as I prefer to call them. What does not come in does not have to be processed by the system.

  1. In addition, it is wise to get tested for allergies, because even if you live such a healthy life, you cannot make an allergy disappear with a healthy lifestyle!
