Spread the love

Psoriasis, with its large red plaques, can cause real aesthetic discomfort on a daily basis: medical treatments based on corticosteroids (or others) can soothe the symptoms, but did you know that certain essential oils were also very effective in relieving patients? ?

Stress, fatigue… and psoriasis reappears!

Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease that affects approximately 1 to 2% of the French population, mainly between the ages of 20 and 60 (although sometimes some children are affected).

Psoriasis is neither of allergic origin, nor contagious, nor linked to poor hygiene. We know, however, that there is a genetic predisposition (several genes seem to be involved) since in 30% of cases, the patient has a family member already affected.

Although often mild, this disease can affect daily life sick people, especially in terms of aesthetics with visible lesions in the form of rounded and irritated red plaques, covered with thick white scaling (peeling) films.

Psoriasis evolves by outbreaks which are more or less frequent from one person to another. Most of the time, the symptoms reappear during episodes of stress, fatigue, change of life, associated illness.

Psoriasis attacks are often treated with local creams based on corticosteroids or calcipotriol.

However, some essential oils can help reduce symptoms.
