I'm suffering from mild psoriasis, it causes huge flakes, itching and hair fall. I use topsor 0.05% solution to keep it in control and ganozhi shampoo, but my hair loss is getting worse. Plus hair thinning and greying rate is high. My scalp is visible due to excessive hair fall and thinning. I have tried minoxidil in the past, but it isn't helping. Please suggest possible solutions.

You can do the following to ease the symptoms of psoriasis 1. Prevent dry skin use a humidifier to keep the air in your home or office moist. This can help prevent dry skin before it starts. Sensitive skin moisturizers are also great at keeping your skin supple and preventing plaques from forming. 2. Avoid fragrances most soaps and perfumes have dyes and other chemicals in them that may irritate your skin. They can make you smell great, but they also can inflame psoriasis. 3. Eat healthfully diet may play a role in managing psoriasis. Eliminating red meat and fatty snacks may help reduce flare-ups triggered by such foods. Cold water fish, seeds, nuts, and omega-3 fatty acids are known for their ability to reduce inflammation. 4. Soak your body hot water may be an irritant for your skin. However, a lukewarm bath can soothe the itching and infiltrate scales and plaques. Moisturize immediately after your bath for double benefits. 5.

Dear Shubham ji Thanks for the query. As per the same, you had mentioned about skin and hair issue due to psoriasis. There a few strategies required to tackle this. a) Keep your skin moist. Apply extra virgin coconut oil after bath. b) Reduce stress as stress increases psoriasis flares. c) Ayurveda Panchakarma therapy can reduce the flare-ups. Pl remember that Ayurveda also helps in remission of the problem and a total cure is not possible in any science. But Ayurveda and positive lifestyle will help you to live peacefully and without much of a discomfort. Should you need further advice, pl send a private message to me.
