Skin Moisturizer That Can Be Used For Psoriasis?
Afternoon, I want to ask about what skin moisturizers that can be used for people with psoriasis, huh? thank you
Thank you for the question.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder that causes the skin to regenerate very quickly, out of control, so that the skin becomes reddish, itchy, thickened, scaly, dry, peeling, swollen, and easily injured. The exact cause of this condition is not yet known. However, factors such as infection (especially throat and skin infections), injuries to the skin (such as scratching, insect bites or burns), stress, lack of vitamin D, certain effects of treatment, until smoking and consuming excessive alcohol are known to aggravate this condition.
So far, the treatment of psoriasis has been aimed primarily at minimizing inflammation, increasing exfoliation of dead skin cells, and at the same time increasing skin moisture. The efforts to moisturize the skin can be achieved in several ways, namely:
Bathing diligently, not too long, use clean water at room temperature
After bathing, dry the skin with a soft towel, then immediately use a moisturizer (choose an oil-based moisturizer / ointment, not a cream or lotion)
Better yet, use a moisturizer that also contains sunscreen to protect it from direct exposure to UV rays
Drink more water
Be more diligent in eating fruits and vegetables that are good for nourishing the skin
No excessive contact with the air conditioner or fan that is too cold
To get further treatment related to your disease, you should consult a doctor or dermatologist right away ..
I hope this helps.
