Psoriasis can only be treated

Psoriasis can only be treated, not cured. Unfortunately, the Winter weather only makes it worse and causes flare ups. The dry air robs your skin of moisture and pasoriasis is exacerbated by this. I would suggest using a humidifier--this will help to hydrate the air and is really helpful for your skin. Also moisturize as much as you can. Get to the doctor and get some medication too. Depending on where the psoriasis is, if it's on the scalp alternate shampoos (one day use something like Head & Shoulders, the next something like Nizoral or long as its medicated). Also, DON'T pick at it--this will cause sores and make it painful.
