Why Conventional Treatments For Psoriasis
Could Make You Worse! You make an appointment to see your doctor
because your psoriasis is flaring. He takes a look and then whips out his prescription
pad to order one of the following: – A prescription strength topical treatment;
– phototherapy; – oral and injection therapy;
– over the counter drugs Any of these treatments (or a combination
of them) may work fine to relieve your symptoms and make you feel better, for now. The trouble with conventional treatment methods
is that they rarely work to cure the underlying cause of this skin condition; and that can
leave you suffering repeat attacks. Still it is important to know what helps are
available, and how they may help or hurt your chance of treatment success. Topical Ointments. Topical ointments are used at the first sign
of psoriasis. If caught early enough they can sometimes
stave off a full-blown attack. Unfortunately, most people report becoming
immune to them when used often, which makes them useless for long term use. Still, using the occasional cream or gel can
help relieve some of your symptoms. Steroids. Both topical and internal steroids can be
prescribed to help ease psoriasis swelling inflammation and itching. Immunomodulators (TIMS). A non-steroidal treatment for psoriasis, TIMS
work by inhibiting a key step in the activation of the T-lymphocyte, a cell found in the immune
system that causes some of the changes seen in psoriatic skin lesions and plaguing. Oral and Injection Therapies. Oral and injection therapies used for psoriasis
are usually reserved for hard to treat cases and include three main oral and injectable
medications: 1. Methotrexate (MTX). MTX is a type of chemotherapy drug that has
been shown to help relieve severer psoriasis. This heavy duty drug works in two major ways:
to stop plaque building cells from regenerating at such a fast speed; and to stop inflammation
on white blood cells, which keeps psoriasis lesions from growing. 2. Cyclosporine. An immune suppressing drug that was originally
used to help transplant patients beat organ rejection, Cyclosporine helps to inhibit T
lymphocyte production so that scaly plaque is unable to grow on the surface of the skin. 3. Oral Retinoid. Retinoid are Vitamin A based synthetic drugs
that fall under two main groups: Isotretinoins and Acitretins. Side Effects to Watch Out For When Using Drug
Therapies. Psoriasis drug therapies may offer some relief
from your symptoms, but they can also cause some nasty side effects. Although irritation is the most common side
effects of these medications, a few more serious ones may include:
– thinning of the skin: when left go, this can become a real health hazard;
– stretch marks; – acne like eruptions;
– dermatitis;- increased lightening or darkening of the skin;
– inflammation of the hair follicle;- increased blood vessel formation;
– infection; – rebound psoriasis;
– loss of effect over time (the drugs simply stop working). Phototherapy. One of the most effective (and safest) forms
of psoriasis treatment help is natural sunlight. When used properly (and in conjunction with
other treatment methods), sunlight can help to heal sore and damaged skin as well as rid
the body of psoriasis. Phototherapy, combines UVB and UVA rays with
topical steroids or other ointments for best results. Dead Sea Salts. Although a common psoriasis healing help in
Asia, Dead Sea Salt water is just now becoming popular amongst American dermatologists. Simply soaking in a bath filled with a cup
of these salts can offer tremendous relief. With so many different types of conventional
psoriasis therapies available, it can be difficult for patients to gauge whether the relief offered
is worth the risk. Discuss both the pros and cons of all medications
with your doctor before undergoing any psoriasis treatment. The information is based on the book, “Psoriasis
