Can a diet alleviate psoriasis?

Actually yes. Although there is no special diet, some foods are known to exert a beneficial effect on psoriasis. Primarily there are omega-3 fatty acids from fatty fish such as salmon. Precisely for this reason, it would be useful to eat the fish at least 2 times a week.

Animal fats and proteins, such as in cheese, eggs and meat are also helpful. In psoriasis, it is not necessary to eat vegan, but a sugar-free and low-fat diet would improve health. Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables can also help to eliminate the symptoms, because many important vitamins are delivered to the body, strengthening the immune system.

What should be considered in cases of psoriasis during pregnancy?

During pregnancy, psoriasis can be really unpleasant because this disease can not be treated as usual. The treatment should take place only as an external application, that is, with the aid of prescribed creams, lotions, ointments or oils. You should entirely stop taking immunosuppressants, retinoids, steroids, cortisone, because these drugs have a negative effect on the unborn baby and, in some cases, moreover, can lead to abortion. During pregnancy, it is extremely important to discuss all treatment options with the attending physician.

Is psoriasis the same as eczema?

Although eczema is a chronic, non-infectious skin disease, they are various diseases. At first glance, these skin diseases are similar, but there are certain differences in the course. Eczema often affects the whole body, while psoriasis occurs on the same skin areas such as the head, knees or behind the ear. In most cases, atopic dermatitis does not cause desquamation. For eczema extreme redness of the besieged areas of skin and severe itching are typical. In psoriasis, however, there can be no itching.

Can sunlight / Solarium help to cure psoriasis?

Sunlight or solarium can not cure psoriasis, because these skin conditions, as it was mentioned above, are chronic, i.e. are not curable. However, a good dose of sunlight can successfully eliminate discomfort. This can be explained by the fact that psoriasis virtually does not cause new episodes in the summer, but usually occurs in autumn or winter. Remember that you should enjoy dosed sun exposure, otherwise, too much sun can dry out the skin, capturing all the necessary moisture.

In most cases, such symptoms in pets are caused by infections or fungi. Too dry air may also affect the scaly skin in animals.
