The Basics of Psoriasis

The Basics of Psoriasis
By TriDerma Admin February 16, 2017 1 comment

Do you ever get an itching desire for something that you can’t stop thinking about? Now imagine that longing in the form of a skin irritation that you just can’t get rid of. This is one symptom of Psoriasis, an autoimmune disease affecting approximately 7.5 million Americans, which causes constant itching and scratching

What is Psoriasis? If you suffer from Psoriasis, as your skin cells begin to regenerate, a buildup of red and scaly patches causes an excess layer to appear. These pesky areas become extremely dry, resulting in a constant urge to scratch.

What type of skin care product should I use? Like the yearning to find relief for your Psoriasis symptoms, we know that you’ve tried a shelf full of products out there. And like us, you probably believe in using only OTC (over the counter) products with NO Cortisone, NO Parabens and NO Coal Tar. When choosing a product for your Psoriasis symptoms, it is wise steer clear of these harmful ingredients and pick a botanical-based formula. Because added fragrance can cause additional unwanted irritations, we believe in using a Fragrance Free product as well. You can find our Psoriasis Control® cream here.

Will my Psoriasis ever go away? This autoimmune disease has no cure, but you can find daily help for symptoms with TriDerma. Take Irene’s advice and see for yourself. “I have had Psoriasis for more than sixty years and have tried numerous prescription and non-prescription cream/ointments to only a small to moderate amount of relief. To say Psoriasis is painful and itchy is an understatement!” Says Irene. “Upon using the Psoriasis Control® Cream, I immediately felt relief of the itching-which is a godsend!!! Further days of use helped remove the scaly patches and lessen the redness.”

Are there different types of Psoriasis? Not everyone who suffers from Psoriasis even knows that they do. The most common form of Psoriasis shows symptoms of plaque buildup, with white scaly skin lesions. You may also suffer from scalp Psoriasis, a scaly condition that leads you to believe you have dandruff. Even though both conditions leave flaky little skin cells on your shoulders, the two conditions require different types of treatment.

What product helps with scalp Psoriasis? If you think you suffer from scalp Psoriasis, you are not alone. "I have suffered from psoriasis on my head and in my hair for 20 years. With the use of one tube of Psoriasis Control® Shampoo, my head and hair is almost 100% free of flakes and itching. I recommend this product to anyone who suffers with this awful invasive condition." Mary, B.

How are TriDerma products different? Our Psoriasis Control® Cream and Psoriasis Control® Shampoo not only contains our AP4® Aloe Vera Complex, but also Salicylic Acid and healing botanicals. Salicylic Acid helps to heal the skin by removing dead cells, or Psoriasis buildup. With Shea Butter and Soothing Oats, these products are using some of nature’s best to help heal skin irritations. By combining the 200 healing properties found in our AP4® Aloe Vera Complex with the exfoliating properties of Salicylic Acid, these products are both safe and effective. That’s right; there is NO Cortisone, NO Parabens and NO Coal Tar found in these products.

From your head to your toes, Psoriasis can put a damper on your lifestyle. But with a little help from your friends at TriDerma, relief is right around the corner!

I have really dry, really sensitive skin. There is a eczema spot on my hand and foot. This cream has done wonders for the itching and redness. I use it for face and body. Awesome product because it has helped as a barrier on my rosacea and moisturizes with the breakouts or greasiness. Thank you Triderma MD.
