Psoriasis can be quite an irritation condition to have.  It’s often an inherited condition, but other external factors like stress, poor diet and bad skin regimens can cause a breakout.

The most common symptoms are dry scaling patches of skin, which may crack and bleed.  Sometimes the sores can become infected.  When this happens, it’s time to see a doctor.

There are a number of ways to treat and live with the symptoms.  Find a way to de-stress.  You can do Yoga, Thai-Shi or meditate.  If you are Ok with using medicine, you can find many topical treatments to treat the affected areas.

Foods rich in omega 3 fats are good treatments for psoriasis.  Home remedies include making topical creams.  Food is your best ally – fish, nuts, seeds, fruit and leafy green vegetables are your friends.

Whatever path you choose, there is a way to live with psoriasis.  If however, you really are depressed with your attempts to live with it but nothing works, then you should consider seeing a doctor for medical advice.
