Psoriasis treatment options explained
There is currently no known cure for psoriasis. A number of psoriasis treatment options are available to help control symptoms. Psoriasis treatment should be based on the type of psoriasis, location of the outbreak, and severity. Treatment goals are aimed at reducing the appearance of outbreaks, inflammation, and itching. Psoriasis treatment options available include products applied to the skin, phototherapy, over the counter lotions and prescription medications.
Mild cases of psoriasis are often easily treated with over the counter skin products. Keeping skin properly hydrated is important. There are many creams, ointments, and lotions that are marketed as psoriasis treatments. Skin MD Natural is the ideal psoriasis treatment lotion because it is designed to work with skin allowing it to heal itself. Its gentle, natural formula is easily absorbed without any greasy residue, unlike other psoriasis treatment lotions.
What are doctors prescribing for psoriasis treatment?
More severe cases may require prescription medication that can be taken orally or applied topically. Prescription psoriasis treatments are only available from a doctor or dermatologist and may include topical corticosteroid creams, retinoid, and tars. Topical steroid creams can be damaging to skin and have a number of negative side effects when used as a psoriasis treatment.
Many dermatologists are recommending patients use both prescription and natural treatments to control psoriasis outbreaks. Board certified dermatologist Dr. Peter Helton is, "prescribing a combination of steroids to handle the inflammation along with a moisturizing cream. With the use of Skin MD Natural we get faster results and the patient has to use less medication. Hands down, a shielding lotion works better than any conventional cream." Using dermatologist recommended Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion provides skin with long lasting moisture while helping decrease the amount of steroids needed. Decreasing the amount of topical steroids absorbed by the skin will help lower the risks of developing related side effects.
What everyone is saying about Skin MD Natural as a psoriasis treatment
"I am so amazed by this product I am compelled to write you! I have been suffering with psoriasis on my hands for over two years now. I have tried pretty much every product available, from Vaseline to topical creams my dermatologist prescribed. Of all of them, Vaseline was about the best, however I never really noticed an improvement. More than anything it was just soothing. While shopping at Michael's two days ago, I noticed a small bottle of your product in the checkout lane. I thought, what the heck, I'll try it.
I AM SO GLAD I DID!!! I think you may have the cure! The shielding lotion has made such an incredible improvement to my psoriasis condition that I am utterly astonished. My hands look and feel like hands again! In just 2 short days. The frustration, irritation, and embarrassment of psoriasis has been such a source of stress for me. I am so glad I found your product. I want more and you can bet I will be sure and tell everyone I know about this 'MIRACLE in a bottle'.

"I have to tell you this, as I am so impressed. I had eczema and psoriasis in my 20's and again in my 40's. I was covered with it, but got over it after some years with homeopathic treatment - however my skin remained ruined like leather, especially my hands. My skin also became extremely sensitive to detergents, soap, and other toxins. I would just break out in red itches. It's no fun being over 40 but having 80-year-old hands. I tried to handle the dryness with various hand lotions several times a day which of course would wash off and often were greasy, leaving my fingerprints all over the expensive glossy designs I was working with.
I found that I only needed to put Skin MD Natural on once a day instead of three times a day with other products. And after about a week I saw and felt a remarkable difference in my hands - they were soft and stayed soft! I had to look and feel them twice - were these actually my hands? Yes. It had enabled my skin to become soft from within. It's now got to the stage where I sometimes forget to put it on daily as I don't have that nasty dry skin to remind me. My hands now look so much younger - and it works on my elbows and feet too. So - thank you for Skin MD Natural."
