Psoriasis is a very common, long-term disease that currently has no cure. Most cases will come around for a few weeks or months, then will lessen for a while and then may come back again. It is most noticeable when it causes red, itchy, scaly patches that generally appear on your hands, elbows, knees and scalp. Common signs and symptoms are:
- Dry, cracked skin that often results in bleeding and itching
- Red patches of skin that have thick, silvery scales
- Swollen and stiff joints
- Scaling spots – usually seen in children
- Burning, soreness or itching
Dermatologists recommend reviewing household items that might be causing skin irritations to help reduce any of the symptoms of Psoriasis.
Hand wash and body wash are one of the most important things to consider changing, or anything that is applied or makes contact directly with your skin. Although it is hard to understand the chemistry of these products and their ingredients, it is worthwhile to research products that are formulated for sensitive skin.
The best hand wash for psoriasis would be one made with natural ingredients and that uses minimal ingredients, with no fragrances or dyes. After you wash your hands you should immediately apply Gloves In A Bottle Shielding Lotion. Gloves In A Bottle can help nourish your scaly skin.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ My Psoriasis is Gone!
I have battled with Psoriasis on my hands for some time now and thought I had tried almost every hand cream out there. I almost didn't try this one because of the price but since we were now battling Covid19 I bought it thinking it would be good for Covid protection and lo and behold not only did it protect my hands my Psoriasis totally went away. For me, this product works the best if I put on one of my favorite hand creams on first and then the Gloves in the Bottle. It will seal in the hand cream underneath just like a glove! My hands are clear and softer than they have ever been. If you don't like heavily scented hand creams you will love this one because it has no smell at all. I am so glad I gave this a try, it was worth every penny! You won't be sorry! – Judy M.
