What's Your Top Tip For Managing Psoriasis In The Summer Heat?

What's Your Top Tip For Managing Psoriasis In The Summer Heat?

I cover up going outside as I live in the Desert which is very hot and the heat makes me itchy! I put on my Eucerin Lotion and hope for the best! Sometimes when I am extra I use Witch Hazel which helps soothe the itch. You can find them in your normal Hemorrhoid Wipes and they are easy to use anywhere or anytime I need a quick itch touch up. I have been on Methotrexate for a month now and my back has cleared up 70 %, and the rest of my arms and legs 20 % per my doctor. He said I can eventually downsize my dosage from 6 a day one day a week to 4 a day and then eventually 2 a day one day a week as I progress and my skin improves! Looking forward to that when it happens! So far I have had no side effects from my medication as I take Folate and Turmeric along with Omega 3. I just take this one day at a time and pray ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป everyday for Godโ€™s help and healing.

I make a mixture of Dickinson's Hydrating Rose Water Witch Hazel, cold alkaline water & a pinch of organic coconut oil. I pour the mixture in small spray bottles and freeze em!
So when I'm on the go, I'll grab 2 spray bottles and just spritz my face & legs if I feel a dry itch coming on.

I use Sorion cream on my body and the shampoo for my scalp. It really does calm things down . Not greasy or smelly so can use at work. When I canโ€™t stop Itching and am sweaty lukewarm bath with a c v and Epsom salts is my go to.

I have had GREAT RESULTS with a Native American healing plant called CHAPARRAL. After showering, I rub the Chaparral salve sparingly on my slightly damp skin. It truly is a great moisturizer. I have had quite a few dry lesions stop flaking and just turn red. The constant itching and scratching have become less and less frequent. You can check it out for yourself at Arizona Desert Rain, Camp Verde, Arizona.
