See the signs and seek relief from psoriasis, a common condition affecting the skin and often the nails. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Get over-the-counter relief

    Try coal tar–containing products like Zetar, PsoriGel, or Balnetar to treat itching, irritation, and skin flaking

  • Try topical creams

    Apply a cream containing 0.025 to 0.075% capsaicin four times a day to relieve itching and help heal sores

  • Address your stress

    Learn stress-reduction techniques such as meditation to improve healing of sores

  • Give aloe a go

    Improve skin-healing by applying a 0.5% herbal extract to affected areas three times a day

  • Talk to your doctor

    Topical corticosteroid creams and ointments like triamcinolone (Kenalog), clobetasol (Temovate), and augmented betamethasone dipropionate (Diprolene) are commonly prescribed to suppress symptoms; severe conditions might require oral corticosteroids like prednisone (Deltasone)

  • For serious cases, ask about medication

    Methotrexate (Rheumatrex Dose Pack) is sometimes prescribed for severe, unresponsive, disabling psoriasis
