Skin care with Psoriasis
General skin care
People always find new ways of coping with the challenges of psoriasis. Tips such as “Don’t scratch!” or “Don’t hide your plaques!” may be well-meaning, but may be unhelpful when your psoriasis starts acting up.
That’s why we have collected some simple and honest tips from real people living with psoriasis that may help you feel more in control of your condition:
Applying creams before bed works best – make sure you wear old pyjamas!
If you apply your creams during the day, be sure to wait as long as possible before getting dressed.
Ask someone to help you apply topical skin care products – a second pair of eyes and hands can be helpful for those tough-to-reach areas.
Skin and clothing tips
The frequency and severity of flare-ups vary between people and may change over time. However, it is important to speak to your doctor whenever you experience one, so they can help get your psoriasis back under control.
