Moisturizing your skin is significant in psoriasis as dry scales tend to thicken and stick. By contrast, hydrated scales tend to get loose and fall off on their own, reducing itching in effect. You should apply your OTC or prescription moisturizers – creams, ointments or emollients – right after a warm bath when you’ve patted yourself dry. This helps lock moisture long into the skin. Petroleum jelly or olive oil are some readily available moisturizers. Whereas moisturizing is singularly important in winters, avoid thick coatings in summers if the weather is too hot, humid or sticky. Sweating should be avoided for all kinds of psoriasis.
