Psoriasis is an immune-mediated disease that causes raised, red, scaly patches to appear on the skin. Psoriasis speeds up the life cycle of skin cells which causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form scales and red patches that are itchy and sometimes painful.
Psoriasis is a chronic disease that often comes and goes. The main goal of treatment is to stop the skin cells from growing so quickly.
Antipsoriatic herbs prevents or counters psoriasis-related-symptoms, mainly itching and discomfort.
All herbs should be used with caution. You should consult your healthcare practitioner before using these herbs.
