The Herbal Shampoo and Conditioner for Psoriasis | Moringa-O2

Need a Shampoo & Conditioner for Psoriasis?

Characterized by red, itchy patches of skin, psoriasis can affect anyone of any age. It is unpredictable, irritating, and often induces panic. But being better informed about psoriasis should help you navigate the situation better and remove some of your doubts or worries.

In this article, we’ll discuss psoriasis, its symptoms and effects on the body, and easy remedies that you can do at home. We’ll also discuss the benefits of an herbal shampoo and conditioner for flaky scalp and how moringa oil helps alleviate the symptoms of psoriasis.

Psoriasis 101

Psoriasis and Its Probable Cause

Basically, psoriasis is triggered by faulty messages from the immune system. These messages affect skin turnover, causing an overproduction of skin cells and the piling up of (and over) dead skin cells.

Experts have yet to discover what causes this faulty messaging from the immune system, but one of the most popular theories behind it is that genes are to be considered responsible. So, if you have someone in the family with psoriasis, there’s a chance that you may have the skin condition too.

Other factors that dermatologists are looking at include:

·        Viral or bacterial infections

·        Sudden changes in the weather

·        Smoking

·        Stress

·        Use of certain medications

Knowing the possible triggers for psoriasis and what causes it is a good place to start towards recovering control over your life. As there is no known cure for the skin condition, the best way to go about it is through addressing and treating the symptoms

Common Symptoms of Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a skin condition that comes with a variety of symptoms, and given the different types of psoriasis, some of these symptoms overlap. Here are the most common signs and symptoms of psoriasis:

  • The skin is showing red patches with thick, whitish scales
  • Tiny spots with scales (often in children)
  • Dried skin that eventually crack, bleed, and itch
  • Itchiness, soreness, and a burning sensation in the skin
  • Thickened, ridged, indented nails
  • Swelling or stiffness in the joints

The patches on the skin due to psoriasis can range from small areas on the body to large, map-like shapes. These areas of the skin can develop flaking, scales, and dandruff, often affecting the following body parts:

  • Face
  • Lower back
  • Arms and elbows
  • Palms of the hand
  • Knees
  • Legs
  • Soles of the feet

Once affected, these areas of the body will heal over time. Depending on one’s health, the cycle of flare-ups can recur for weeks, and at times, for a couple of months. That being said, identifying the triggers and knowing how the symptoms manifest in the body can help address the skin condition.

Types of Psoriasis

Given its complex nature, here’s a list of the multiple types of psoriasis. Consult with a doctor to ascertain how to best approach treatment.

Plaque Psoriasis

Plaque Psoriasis is the most common of all types, with raised, red patches on the elbows, knees, lower back, and scalp.

Guttate Psoriasis

Translated as “drop” in Latin, Guttate Psoriasis is recognizable by its teardrop-shaped spots and silver scales. The commonly affected areas are the torso and limbs. Spots may also appear on the face and scalp.

Guttate Psoriasis usually starts showing symptoms in early childhood or young adulthood.

Inverse Psoriasis

Inverse Psoriasis appears as shiny, smooth, red lesions in the body or skin folds, such as the armpits, the groin area, and under the breast. This type of psoriasis is also known as Flexural Psoriasis.

Pustular Psoriasis

Pustular Psoriasis owes its name to its characteristic and the appearance of white pustules surrounded by red skin. There are three subcategories under this type, each having different sets of symptoms, as well as severity. Its pus-filled blisters will need medical attention for treatment and management.

Erythrodermic Psoriasis

This rare inflammatory type of psoriasis can develop over the entire body. Symptoms include widespread redness, pain, and severe itching.

How to Treat Psoriasis

Here are three details that you need to be clear about psoriasis:

1.) it’s not a skin disease,

2.) it’s not contagious,

3.) and it has no cure, but the pain and itch can definitely be minimized and managed.

The type of treatment is prescribed according to the kind and severity of psoriasis, as well as the area of skin that’s affected. Obviously, serious cases require more complex procedures and the attention of a health or skin professional. For those requiring mild treatment, however, your doctor will most likely recommend the usage of a topical cream or product.

Here are some of the easy home remedies for immediate relief from psoriasis symptoms:

To lock water in the skin and reduce irritation or redness:

  • Petroleum jelly
  • A thick moisturizer

For itchiness or irritation in the scalp:

  • Apple cider vinegar (but do not do this when the scalp is cracked or bleeding, as it induces a burning sensation)

For scaling skin, bathe in a tub of warm water for about 15 minutes with any of the following salts:

  • Dead Sea Salt
  • Epsom Salt

And make sure to moisturize after for better water retention in the skin. You can use the following oils and creams for some relief as well:

  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Aloe Vera Gel or Cream
  • Coconut Oil
  • Castor Oil
  • Lavender Oil
  • Geranium Oil
  • Peppermint Oil
  • Argan Oil
  • Blackseed (or Black Cumin Seed) Oil
  • Moringa Oil

It always helps to be sure that your skin will respond positively to any forms of treatment. That said, pay a visit to your doctor to find out which home remedy is right for you. Especially in severe cases, you will want to avoid any untoward allergic reactions.

These home remedies should help alleviate mild cases of psoriasis flare-ups. Knowing what triggers these flare-ups and avoiding them is the best way to live with the skin condition. As always, “prevention is still better than cure” rings true.
