One of my friend is 22 years of age. He is having some sort of skin disease. Doctors says that it is psoriasis. After hearing this he is always sad and stressed as doctors say that no cure for this is still invented. In this skin problem he used to have patches nd scars kind of thing all over the body which bleeds after some days. This mainly occurs during winters, while the effect is reduced during rest of the seasons. Because of this he is always sad. Can you please tell whether any cure of this is there and if not then how it can be reduced to minimum.

Living with psoriasis can be physically and emotionally challenging. Homeopathic treatment for psoriasis has been found to be extremely effective. It stimulates the body's own healing potential by restoring the balance of the immune system. It will control the number and severity of lesions, minimize flare ups, improve your quality of life, reduce disability and in most cases bring about a permanent cure. As Psoriasis is an obstinate and chronic disease, there is no magical cure. The duration of treatment depends on duration and severity of psoriasis, general health and other associated diseases. Most patients observe positive results in about 4 to 5 weeks of treatment, though the complete curative process can take about 1 to 2 years. Lifestyle and Home remedies •Exposure your skin to the morning sun for about 15 minutes. Avoid sun exposure between 11 am to 4 pm. •Regular and quick bath with lukewarm water followed by application of coconut oil or olive oil to seal moisture in the skin. •Epsom salt bath is helpful.(Consult your physician before using it) •Wear cotton clothes. •Try to avoid infections, injuries to your skin, stress, smoking and intense sun exposure.
