The best homeopathic psoriasis treatments will depend on the patient, but they may include arsenicum album, aloe, rhus toxicodendron, or tea tree oil. Psoriasis may be caused by various irritants, and some patients respond better to some treatments than others. Finding the right option is often a matter of trial and error.

One test patients can try when determining the ideal homeopathic psoriasis treatments is to apply warmth to the affected area. If a warm compress seems to soothe itching and reduce symptoms overall, then arsenicum album, or rhus toxicodendron may be help reduce inflammation and itching. If it makes things worse, graphites may be a better option. These options can generally be found online or in health food stores.

There are also many homeopathic psoriasis treatments which are designed to soothe skin in general, regardless of the underlying cause of irritation. Tea tree oil and aloe are two examples which may clear up redness and reduce itching. There are shampoos, washes, and creams made with tea tree oil for this purpose. Aloe can be found in some lotions, or it can be purchased as a gel or tincture. Both of these treatments can be found on health-themed retail websites or in health stores.

Petroleum is another potential treatment, although it is not advised for patients use this form for extended periods of time. Some studies have shown that oil-based moisturizers can make symptoms worse when used for long periods. If these treatments do not offer relief, another condition may be to blame for symptoms or medication may be needed.

Psoriasis is a skin condition which is often caused by an autoimmune response. Symptoms can include severe itching, redness, scaling, flaking, and inflammation. It can occur anywhere on the skin, including the scalp. Homeopathic psoriasis treatments may be effective for some individuals, but if symptoms persist a dermatologist should be consulted. In some cases another health condition may be to blame. Other skin conditions, such as rosacea or adult acne, can mimic psoriasis in symptoms.

Although generally natural, homeopathic psoriasis treatments can sometimes interact with other skin medications and creams. For this reason, patients should consult a doctor before using any skin treatment. If additional symptoms appear or existing symptoms worsen, treatments should be discontinued and a health care professional should be consulted.

@bluedolphin-- A friend of mine said good things about neem shampoo. A shampoo doesn't necessarily have to be labeled homeopathic either. Mild organic, all natural shampoos with natural oils can be used as well.

Coconut oil, for example, is a great oil. It has anti-inflammatory properties. It absorbs into the hair strands and provides moisture for a long time. A coconut oil shampoo would help with psoriasis.

@bluedolphin-- Neem, tulsi, amla and reetha are all popular ingredients in homeopathic shampoos. These are all natural, made from neem or tulsi leaves, amla fruit or reetha nuts. They do have medicinal properties and can help relieve symptoms of psoriasis. You can get these ready made online. But if you have the means, I actually recommend seeing a homeopathy practitioner for a custom made mixture for you.

When a homeopathy doctor treats a patient, he or she considers many different things, including the general health and psychology of the patient. Moreover the products sold online may be of inferior quality or may have chemicals and additives that will make psoriasis worse. The shampoo that the doctor prepares for you (or gives ingredients for you to prepare at home) will be all natural and based on your health and symptoms specifically.

I can't use tea tree oil shampoo because I'm allergic to tea tree oil. I don't want to use any product with petroleum because I want a treatment that's completely natural and safe. I don't think petroleum and petroleum by products are safe, at least not as a long-term treatment. I will try aloe shampoo but are there any other alternatives?
