Psoriasis Treatments: Vinegar Can Help
Psoriasis is a very irritating and sometimes painful skin disease. The causes are as varied as
the condition itself. Some psoriasis sufferers are lucky and only have minor flare ups. Others need to leave the
house completely covered due to unsightly skin damage. Unfortunately, there is no cure for psoriasis but
fortunately there are several treatments. The news gets even better with the fact that many of the treatments are
made from things that are in your own home.
Most of us have a jar of vinegar in our kitchens. It makes for a great sauce with many sea foods
and is great with French fries. However, vinegar has many other uses. Vinegar makes a great cleaner and is the best
hair and skin conditioner you can buy. Vinegar has the ability to balance the ph levels in your skin. It doesn’t
matter if your skin is naturally oily or dry, vinegar works to re-establish that balance in your skin.
Psoriasis sufferers can also benefit from vinegar. Creating a good balance in your skin can help
to reduce the effects of psoriasis. Apple cider vinegar specifically has been known to reduce inflammation. It also
helps to ease the pain and burning associated with psoriasis.
Those that have finger or toe nails that are affected by this condition should mix the apple
cider vinegar with water. Simply place your nails in the mixture for a few minutes. It acts as a great cleaner and
can improve your nail’s quality. Apple cider vinegar compresses are also effective in treating skin flair ups. Mix
one cup of apple cider vinegar to one gallon of water. Place a small towel or wash cloth in the mixture and apply
directly to your skin. This will help sooth the itching and pain as well as re-moisturize the skin.
Vinegar has so many wonderful properties. It is a very mild disinfectant and is also a great
cleaner. By using the compresses and mixtures of apple cider vinegar and water, you can sooth and even help heal
damaged skin. You can also save money. Vinegar gives the body a natural remedy for psoriasis. It is less harsh than
many other chemical cures and is readily available.
