How to get rid of psoriasis forever

Psoriatic plaque on the elbow

Psoriasis is an autoimmune skin disease accompanied by the formation of red plaques on its surface. The disease is being actively studied by experts from around the world. The search is underway for new methods of therapy that are more successful than the classic ones.

Is it possible to get rid of psoriasis permanently?

Patients who have encountered an unpleasant disease are more interested in whether they can get rid of the disease forever. To understand this, it is necessary to understand the nature of the violation. A skin rash, which consists of many red papules of various sizes, develops as a result of an abnormal immune response. For unknown reasons, immune cells begin to attack absolutely healthy tissues in the epidermis. This leads to the development of inflammatory processes that look like a serious allergy.


Treatment of psoriasis under the supervision of a doctor

Can psoriasis be permanently cured in the end? At the moment, doctors tend to answer that it is impossible to get a complete cure. The reason that psoriasis is incurable is that the disease is autoimmune and the nature of its occurrence is not fully understood, it is now impossible to find a completely successful treatment. With the help of a variety of medications, the patient can reach a stable remission stage and forget about the disease for the rest of his life, but he still needs to follow a series of preventive measures to reduce the risk of relapse. The new development of the disease occurs due to stress, overexertion, trauma and other factors that do not depend entirely on the patient.

This does not mean that the patient's quality of life will seriously deteriorate. When asked whether it is possible to die from psoriasis, doctors respond negatively. The disease increases the risk of developing malignant formations of the epidermis, but by itself it is not fatal. How many people live with psoriasis, official statistics do not report, but as the disease hardly affects the body in a systemic way, life expectancy hardly changes. The prognosis for life with psoriasis is as follows: if you attend preventive exams, physical therapy, take the prescribed drugs in time, you can get rid of both itchy psoriasis and other unpleasant symptoms.

From 2008 to the present day, research has been done on how to cure psoriasis forever. Three new methods of fighting have already been discovered, it has been established which parasites cause psoriasis (among other factors), but none of the therapy methods has yet given a 100% remission. However, in the near future, scientists are likely to discover how to get rid of psoriasis forever.

Psoriasis and severity of the development of pathology

Psoriasis has several classifications. First, the disease is divided into 3 main types: gout, chronic and also the opposite (formed in place of the curvature of the limbs). But this classification concerns only the appearance of papules and the symptoms that accompany the development of the disease. To understand the likelihood that a patient will forget the disease for a long time, it is necessary to determine the severity.

First degree

Psoriasis on the arm

Experts distinguish 3 degrees of severity. The first is characterized by the following symptoms:

  • almost imperceptible development of the disease;
  • plaques may be absent or sporadic;
  • the disease often proceeds without additional symptoms or with only mild itching and flaking;
  • the main signs of development of the disease are peeling and moderate redness of the skin;
  • not more than 3% of the total skin area is affected.

In other words, minor injuries are not even diagnosed. It rarely brings discomfort to the patient, as there are no exudative formations, and often disappears on its own after the disappearance of the predisposing factor (stress, overload or systemic disease).

High school

The second degree of severity, medium, is characterized by the following features:

  • 3-10% of the skin is affected;
  • all symptoms of mild severity are more pronounced;
  • increased itching;
  • papules are more pronounced, more common or larger.
Scalp psoriasis

Severe psoriasis is the worst tolerated by patients, as it is accompanied by the following disorders:

  • of more than 10% of the skin;
  • increased papule thickness, increased diameter;
  • excruciating itch;
  • severe flaking with scabs;
  • the appearance of edema;
  • permanent redness of the skin.

The more the disorder develops, the more difficult it will be to reach the stage of complete remission. Thus, with a severe degree of development, even if external skin diseases and inflammatory processes are eliminated, due to a series of complications, defects in Organs internal organs, in particular the kidneys, may remain. Since it is difficult to live with severe psoriasis without additional pain relievers, the liver is often affected.

The PASI severity index is used to facilitate diagnosis. It allows you to assess severity from 0 to 72 points, with a focus on the quality and number of injuries, as well as the associated symptoms. The exact number of points is determined only by a qualified dermatologist. The determination of the number of stitches is influenced by factors such as the size of the lesion in percentage terms, the degree of desquamation, erythema, as well as the strength of exudate secretion. Depending on the number of points scored, it is determined whether it is possible to completely cure psoriasis (taking into account the specifics of the disease, take the disease to the stage of stable remission) and abandon the drugs, or whether the drugs will need to be used for life.


Can severe psoriasis be cured? Regardless of the degree of damage, with the help of professional medicines, you can deal with both the symptoms and the disease itself, transferring it to the remission stage. Of course, the stronger the severity of the injuries, the more drugs that are dangerous to the liver will have to be taken.

Psoriasis patient at medical consultation

Ointments and curative gels form the basis of therapy. They are made on the basis of medicines from various groups:

  • vitamin D for the early stages of the disease allows you to saturate the skin with useful elements, stop inflammation and flaking;
  • corticosteroids, that is, hormonal substances, inhibit the development of autoimmune reactions, preventing the development of papules;
  • calcineurin inhibitors perform the same functions as hormonal substances, but can be used in the presence of disorders of the endocrine system.

Use medications only as directed by the responsible physician. Incorrect selection of funds, violation of the prescribed period of treatment or dosage sometimes leads to serious complications.

The types of gels and ointments listed are used for moderate psoriasis. There are professional solutions that can prevent the development of symptoms in the early stages. The most popular medications for adults and children include:

  • mustard ointment;
  • tar and herbal formulations;
  • hydrating and regenerating compositions based on salicylic acid;
  • anthrasulfone ointment;
  • solidol-based preparations and medicinal herbs that can stop inflammation and correct the water balance.

In some cases, hormone-based drugs or immunosuppressive pills are used. These medications sometimes lead to the development of systemic side effects, but they help to eliminate serious symptoms quickly.

Can psoriasis go away on its own? This occurs, but it is very rare, especially in patients under 12 years of age.

Folk remedies

It is not recommended to use the recipes below if the degree of development is severe or moderate. In an initial phase, the use of decoctions based on herbs and plants is allowed, but only after agreement with the doctor.

  1. A diet that excludes smoked meats, fast food and a lot of sugar. Make sure to organize fasting days once a week.
  2. The Pegasus diet. Based on the acidity of the food: 30% of the diet is acidic, 70% is alkaline.
