Top Five Homeopathic Medicines for Guttate Psoriasis

 Top Five homeopathic medicines for Guttate Psoriasis

Are you suffering from dryness, scaling and itching of the skin? You could be afflicted by Guttate Psoriasis. Though it may not come across as an incapacitating condition, it can disrupt the affected person’s daily routine by virtue of the pain, irritation and discomfort it causes.Homeopathy can not only alleviate the symptoms of Guttate Psoriasis but also tackle the root cause of the affliction. Homeopathic medicines assure an advantage over other systems of treatment in assuaging Guttate Psoriasis, as they are minus side-effects and are derived from natural substances.

Signs of Guttate Psoriasis

Psoriasis is an auto-immune disease of the skin, characterized by dryness, scaling and itching of the skin. It may occur in any part of the body. The guttate variety is marked by small, circular reddish lesions, particularly in the exposed parts of the body, such as the forearms, legs and rarely the trunk and back.

Best homoeopathic remedies for Guttate Psoriasis

I would recommend the following to be the top five homeopathic remedies for psoriasis, as they offer a holistic line of treatment that covers all forms of Guttate Psoriasis:

NATRUM MUR:- Homoeopathic medicine  Natrum Mur is the leading remedy for treating cases of guttate psoriasis. The patient suffers from dry psoriatic patches mostly in the scalp, hairy margin, behind the ears, bends of joints and most of the exposed areas of skin. The lesions are dry and the skin peels easily. People needing Natrum Mur may exhibit an unusual craving for salt and salty things. This usually aggravates the itching. The persons may also experience an increase in the symptoms when they go to a hot, humid climate as found in coastal regions.

ARS IOD:-  Ars Iod is also an excellent homoeopathic medicine for curing cases of guttate psoriasis characterized by an extremely dry skin which peels off easily. The patient may be very weak. Ars Iod promises relief from guttate psoriasis in people who also have respiratory complaints. The skin shows excessive scaling. As the skin peels, the underlying skin is exposed and there may be a thin watery discharge. Ars Iod can be prescribed to patients who are thin, emaciated and easily fatigued. They may also have profuse sweating at night.

SEPIA:- Homoeopathic medicine Sepia is  especially suited for guttate psoriasis in females in who are in the menopausal or post-menopausal phase.  There may be an uncontrollable desire to scratch as there is an excessive itching. Though the patient keeps on scratching, she does not get any relief and continued scratching gives rise to a sore, burning sensation in the affected part. Guttate psoriasis is associated with an extremely bad smell emanating from the skin. Sepia can be given to women who don’t demonstrate any feelings or emotions towards their family members, have lost all interest in their profession and take umbrage easily. The patient may cry at every little thing and is extremely moody and irritable.

SILICEA:- I find Silicea is another homoeopathic medicine which works well for guttate psoriasis. It is best prescribed for patients who have lesions that are tiny and look rosy red in color. As the lesions become old, the color changes to dark brown and then form into dry and white scales. Persons who require silicea may give off an offensive foot sweat. Silicea can be given in people who feel extremely cold and cannot tolerate even the mildest form of cold. The skin lesions may itch only in the day time and the patients feel better in the evening and night.

GRAPHITES:- I would pick homoeopathic medicine Graphites for treating skin ailments, especially in patients who may have a tendency to take cold easily. Graphites may be recommended for patients who are shy, timid and indecisive. The skin is rough and hard. Graphites can also be given in psoriasis of the nails where the nails are crippled and break easily. Nails are deformed and there may be cracks around the finger tips. In these cases, guttate psoriasis with lesions spreads all over the body.

Psoriasis & Eczema that worsen in winters

Although winters are a big relief from the scorching heat that we face in this part of the country, cold weather brings its own set of miseries. Some skin disorders tend to increase in winters. Psoriasis and eczema are two of the kind.  Many patients with Psoriasis and Eczema see a drastic increase in the cold weather. It is not necessary that all cases of psoriasis and eczema aggravate in winters, some case just behave the opposite – they aggravate in summers. Cold weather related flare ups can range from mild to severe. Also in some cases these skin disorders may appear only in winters, having summers as a totally symptom free period. Homeopathy Medicines can provide an effective treatment against these cold weather flare ups of psoriasis and eczema. Along with the symptomatic relief, homeo- medicines also ensure a gradual eradication of the disease from the body.

Psoriasis is a chronic skin problem. Psoriasis is commonly depicted by Skin lesions in the form of patches which are red at the base and are covered by silvery scales. Such shiny silvery scales are very typical of psoriasis. Itching is a common symptom of psoriasis. Cracks and cuts in the skin are also a part of psoriasis. The extent to which Psoriasis can affect an individual can range from very small patches to nearly the whole body being involved.  Nails of fingers and toes also do get affected.

Our skin is formed of tiny mature cells. They usually take about a month to mature and to show up at the surface of the skin; but in psoriasis the cells are pushed to the surface at a much faster speed. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder. This means that defense cells that protect our body from infections, start attacking the skin which leads to inflammation on the skin and also the production of immature skin cells.  These are pushed to the surface of the skin. These cells then show up as silvery scales on the skin. Psoriasis generally has a strong family inheritance and about a third of them have a close relative suffering from it.

Eczema (Dermatitis) is inflammation of the upper layers of the skin, which leads to itching, blisters, redness, swelling, and often oozing, scabbing, and scaling on the skin. Some forms of eczema like Seborrhic Dermatitis and Atopic dermatitis (commonly found in small children) tend to aggravate in when skin gets dry.

Psoriasis and the above mentioned forms of eczema, have a tendency to increase in winters. This is usually due to the fact that cold weather causes drying of the skin. Indoor heating can further deplete the skin of the moisture leading to an increase in the symptoms of psoriasis and eczema.

Homeopathy has a very effective solution for psoriasis and Eczemas that aggravates during cold weather .There are specific medicines in homeopathy that are there specially for treating winter flare-ups. One such Homeopathic medicine ‘Petroleum’ requires a special mention here for its effectiveness in treating skin problems that aggravate in winters. Not only do Homeo medicines treat the ‘winter increase’ in psoriasis but also help in stopping the recurrence of psoriasis and Eczemas, they help in treating the disorder from the body.  Please note that the above mentioned medicine should not be used without a professional help.
