Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition thought to be caused by a breakdown of the immune system. It is not contagious. Aggravating and painful, psoriasis causes patches of dry, scaly skin to appear. Having psoriasis can deeply affect a person's everyday life and even relationships. The National Psoriasis Foundation estimates 2-3% of the US population suffers with chronic psoriasis.
The skin enters a state of hyper-metabolism. The psoriasis sufferer's skin cells turn over much faster than normal skin cells causing the skin to be red and irritated.
While scientists claim no cure, there are medical and homeopathic treatments available. Many people have learned how to keep this skin condition under control with nutritional and dietary solutions. Consult your trusted doctor, dermatologist or nutritionist for more information about psoriasis treatments.
Health care regimens for psoriasis include topical solutions to keep the skin soft and moist. InfiniteAloe® Skin Care includes many ingredients that are known to benefit the skin and keep it healthy, soft and moist and have been used by tens of thousands as part of a successful skin care regimen.
You may find, as so many others have, that the combination of natural and scientifically advanced ingredients in InfiniteAloe® Skin Care helps to moisturize and soothe as part of your skin care regimen.
Psoriasis has been reported in medical texts for thousands of years. During that time, various topical solutions for psoriasis were tested and anecdotal reports noted when they indicated a benefit. Modern science has made clinical testing possible of many plant essences and oils. You can learn more about the scientific studies by reading the References attached to this article.
