Psoriasis

psoriasis lotion

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease characterized by patches of abnormal skin. These patches are typically red, itchy, and scaly. They may vary in severity from small and localized to complete body coverage. Injury to the skin can trigger psoriatic skin changes at that spot, which is known as Koebner phenomenon. Psoriasis vulgaris (also known as chronic stationary psoriasis or plaque-like psoriasis) is the most common form and affects 85%–90% of people with psoriasis.

Causes and Treatment of Psoriasis

The actual cause of Psoriasis is not fully understood, though about a third of the people with psoriasis report a family history of the disease and researchers have identified genetic loci (a locus is the specific physical location of a gene or other DNA sequence on a chromosome, like a genetic street address, the plural of locus is "loci") associated with the condition.

There are many different forms of treatment for Psoriasis, depending on the type and severity of the condition. Some common forms of treatment include: Topical agents (steroids, barrier creams, lotions, moisturizers and shielding lotions) Phototherapy (UV therapy) Systemic agents (drugs or treatment that affects the entire body) Surgery Alternative therapies.

In many cases, treatment includes a varied methodology. Corticosteroids used with phototherapy, barrier creams or even surgery are not uncommon. Moisturizers and lotions are almost always part of the treatment, as the skin tends to dry out easily with psoriasis. Barrier creams are also common, as even minor irritations can exacerbate psoriasis.

Shielding Lotion Helps Treat Psoriasis

While barrier creams form a protective external layer against allergens and irritants, they are frequently wax or petroleum-based and tend to clog the pores, causing a wide range of skin problems with prolonged usage. In recent years, dermatologists have begun recommending shielding lotion as an alternative to barrier creams because a shielding lotion actually bonds with dead skin cells on the outer layer of skin to assist in protecting the skin against allergens and irritants.

Another benefit of a shielding lotion, and why many dermatologists are recommending it as an alternative to skin moisturizers, is that it helps the skin retain natural oils and moisture.

Fiona's Very Real Story

“Around 15 years ago I developed dry scaly skin on my hands, I was referred to a Dermatologist who diagnosed Psoriasis. Over the years I have tried all sorts of remedies including UV light therapy, various steroid creams, coal tar treatment, various moisturizing lotions, and also a few not so conventional creams. Cow’s udder cream, aloe vera etc. In the summer this year my hands were extremely sore as you see from the 1st picture taken on 20th August. I was finding it painful to drive and do simple things like washing the dishes. So I had a look on Amazon for some moisturizing gloves to give me some protection when driving, and some plastic gloves to help me when washing etc.

I came across Gloves In A Bottle, read the reviews and ordered it! Well I think the results speak for themselves, within a few days I was almost pain free, and it just kept getting better and better. I highly recommend this product for anyone who has troublesome skin…amazing! Best regards.”

Cracked Skin & Psoriasis

"After trying expensive medications for the cracked skin around by fingers from cleaning, Gloves in a Bottle eliminated my issue in 7 days. My split finger nails appear to be healing as well. I tried it on my scalp psoriasis. After 8 years of applying various oils, serums, lotions, scalp treatments, and mediations, my scalp is clear & healed. When applied to the scalp, it soaks in the skin so it doesn’t leave your hair oily or greasy. Application is not visible on the hair strands. I am totally amazed & thrilled that it has cleared up in 2 weeks. I now use it on my hands & face at bedtime. I am extremely happy & would highly recommend."

Psoriasis Relief

"My dermatologist gave me a prescription for the cortisone ointment when she diagnosed me with psoriasis. It did help heal, however, every time I got my skin wet, the psoriasis came back with a vengeance. I purchased multiple types of lotion and nursing gloves for my hands. Nothing actually helped. While at my local small town pharmacy on day, I saw Gloves in a Bottle (all in 1 shielding lotion) and thought well I’ll try this. I purchased a sample 2 oz bottle (for $6).

I am honestly amazed and extremely pleased at the difference it made with my psoriasis and also other areas where my skin is uncomfortably dry and itchy. The bottle is empty… every last bit– so I found your site to find out where I can purchase larger sizes at better price.

This product is one of my “pass-this-product’s-info” on to friends and family. Thank you for making a superb product that actually fulfills its claims."

I Suffer from the Effects of Psoriasis

“I wanted to write a message here to say “Thank You”. To me it is not “gloves in a bottle”, but more like “Miracle-In-A-Bottle”. I suffer from the effects of psoriasis and eczema on both my feet and my hands, this is topped with allergies to a wide variety items. I have been using steroidal creams and moisturizers, together with oral steroids to help keep it in check. I have suffered with this for about 5 years now, and it’s been very bad, to point where I was not able to make a fist or even walk.

Even after all this, as soon as I would finish the oral steroid regimen, within 4 to 5 days the psoriasis condition would re-appear with a vengeance. I was presented with your product by my Dermatologists. At the point I saw them, my feet were extremely bad, as were my hands. My hands looked like something made up in a Hollywood set for a movie. Well, I began using your product, and after just a few days, my psoriasis damaged hands began to show signs of getting better, and I can actually sleep through the night now. I apply it a bit more often then the suggested use, since my skin cells are in the “fast lane”, as compared to normal skin cells. I gave your product to a co-worker here in the office, his hands were extremely dry, and his wife was allergic to the powder that is placed inside of the latex gloves. After using your product, the allergic reaction stopped, and his hands began to feel much better as well. Please feel free to use this for endorsement of your product. Once again, THANK YOU for making my life a lot easier and somewhat more normal.”

Great Skin Solution for Outdoor Pursuits

"Gloves In A Bottle is a shielding lotion, for use ANYWHERE on the body. It bonds with the outer layer of skin cells to give them integrity, so it retains moisture and oils in the skin while offering a shielding property which protects from the elements that interfere with the skin’s condition. It doesn’t wash off! Instead, it comes off with natural exfoliation of the skin layers and therefore remains effective for several hours.

Because this protective layer locks in moisture, it allows the condition of dry/damaged skin to be restored naturally and very effectively! It helps to relieve eczema, psoriasis, it’s also used in diabetic care, and it prevents blistering in patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment. The shielding property prevents skin allergies, dermatitis and skin irritations including resisting poisonous plants and shrubs. It is used across a huge number of industries to protect the skin – from constant handwashing / sanitizing, handling cleaning products, solvents, paints and thinners, or just to make it easier to clean up after working because paint, oil and grime will wash off the skin more readily. In winter sales will soar because of the prevalence of dry skin conditions. In summer, its also great for healing big bites, reducing skin-pealing after sunburn, and with the new SPF formula it makes a great skin solution for outdoor pursuits."
