It is an Autoimmune Disease in which the skin cells replicate ten times faster then the normal rate.

Normally, the Immune System fights Germs and Infections. But in Psoriasis the Immune System attacks the White Blood Cells . It causes excessive growth of the Skin. This leads to the formation of Scabs on the surface of the Skin. Normally, the new Skin cells are formed within a Month. But in Psoriasis there is a rapid growth of Skin Cells.

Dear Dilver Jit

For Psoriasis, Tea Tree oil has beneficial effects. It has antiseptic properties. It is also good to combat other skin disorders like Acne, Dandruff and Athlete's Foot. It has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties.
But, be careful while using it, as it is quite a strong oil and may cause an allergic reaction. Please apply a small amount of Tea tree oil with a cotton ball on the affected region.
Or you may try Aloe Vera gel also. Apply it on the affected area regularly.

Dear Uma

As per the symptoms yo have mentioned you don't have Psoriasis. The problem is that you are having Magnesium deficiency. Please buy Magnesium Chloride with Calcium from internet, as it is not available locally. Buy one bottle with 60 capsules and have one capsule a day for one month. After this study the results and write about the results to herbpathy.

Dear Sachin
As we have not seen the actual condition of patient, so it would be hard to recommend an appropriate remedy. We advise you to apply coconut oil. It will give relief from itching and dry scaly skin. Apply 2 to 3 times in a day and do gentle massage. Repeat the process for 1 week and see the results.

We advise you to try the following.
1. Apply Aloe Vera gel 2 times in a day on the affected areas. This will provide a soothing effect and will reduce rashes.
2. You can also apply Banana Peel. Remove the Banana Skin and rub the inner side to the affected areas. Do it for 10 days and see if it affects you.

Try Babchi oil, better dilute it with some other oil like coconut oil. You can also try Epsom Salt. Add 3 cups of Epsom salt to your warm bathing water and sit in that water for 15 to 20 min. Apply olive oil after that. Repeat the process at alternative days.

Dear Salim
Instead of taking all these herbs, I advise you to take a combo of Black and White Musli for a month. It is easily available in the Market. And also buy a tincture of Tribulus Terrestris, take 10 drops 3 times a day. You can get it from a Homeopathy Shop. Goond Katira is also good. Fry it in Ghee ( Clarified butter ) or add it in Panjiri that is usually made India during winters to keep the body warm. As Good Katira is hot in nature when fried and cool in nature when soaked in water.

10 Jun 2016
Dear Ajeet
Apply Babchi oil on your scalp, And dilute it with some other oil like Olive or Coconut oil. Apply it for 1 month. Also, boil a hand full of Neem leaves in water and wash your head with this water. For your back pain, buy a bottle of Maha yograj from Dhootapapeshwar and take 1 tablet every day.

Dear Ranjana
As such there is no evidence that Manjakani ( Majuphal ) can cure Psoriasis. However, the best remedies for Psoriasis are Psoralea and Tea Tree Oil. You may scroll above and see the method how to use the Herbs.

I am 39 Years Old. I am having Nephritic Syndrome since childhood. It is not severe in my case. Usually gets 2-3 relapses in 5 years period and getting treated with Cortico Steroids. Have no relapse since more than 2 years.

But before 11 months I was diagnosed with Psoriasis also (Red itchy skin all over body and scalp) and treating it with UV Rays every alternate day and applying lotion of Betamethasone Dipropionate, Salicylic Acid and Zinc Oxide every day.

Couple of years ago an Ayurveda Doctor suggested Concentrated Cow Urine after checking my nerve, saying fungal infection is there in my body. Is it beneficial for me ? Can I take Flex Seeds ? Also suggest me proper Ayurveda treatment to cure it.

Hi Herbpathy Research Team
I have been suffering from psoriasis for few years and topical treatment as under psoriasis description and in your answers to the questions like psoralea and tea tree oil etc give temporary relief and while using these oils new psoriatic lesions appear on the other parts of body which shows as per my novice understanding the treatment is only from outside and not from inside. For inside treatment I have read topics like skin diseases, blood purifiers, blood tonics, immunity boosters etc(I am a very regular reader of your website) and you people have given wonderful information and herbs under each topic I really appreciate it. Because you people are experts and I am only a reader and there is nothing better than the expert advice, I would like to request if your team can prescribe something which can cure psoriasis from inside as well?
