It may also help reduce redness, scaling, and inflammation from psoriasis. Aloe should be applied directly to the skin, not taken internally. Anyone using an aloe cream should check the label and choose one that contains at least 0.5 percent aloe. Many health food stores carry aloe creams and gels. How common is PsA? The most common form of psoriasis that affects about 80% of all sufferers is psoriasis vulgaris ("vulgaris" means common). It is also referred to as plaque psoriasis because of the well-defined areas of raised red skin that characterize this form. These raised red plaques have a flaky, silver-white buildup on top called scale, made up of dead skin cells. The scale loosens and sheds frequently.

Do certain foods positively or negatively impact your psoriasis? Diet. Obese psoriasis patients who lose weight report significant improvement in their symptoms, research has shown. Eliminating gluten also seems to alleviate joint pain and skin symptoms in the 25% of psoriasis patients who are sensitive to the protein, which is found in bread, pasta, crackers, soy sauce, lunch meats, and many other food products.

Topical corticosteroids are the most commonly prescribed treatment for psoriasis.5 They are available in ointment, cream, lotion and solution forms. Corticosteroids have well-recognized anti-inflammatory and antiproliferative effects, which are thought to be their primary mechanism of action in psoriasis.6  Topical steroids are classified as low-, medium-, high- and super-high potency agents (Table 2). In general, treatment is initiated with a medium-strength agent, and high-potency agents are reserved for the treatment of thick chronic plaques that are refractory to weaker steroids. Low-potency agents are used on the face, on areas where the skin tends to be thinner, and on the groin and axillary areas, where natural occlusion increases the potency of a low-potency agent to the equivalent of a higher potency agent. Use of high-potency agents in these areas increases the risk of side effects and therefore should be avoided. Journal of Pulmonary & Respiratory Medicine Open Access Journal 3.
