Managing and Avoiding Psoriasis Triggers
Dermatology care can alleviate psoriasis symptoms, but dermatologists recommend that patients do their part to avoid psoriasis triggers. This video discusses ways to reduce the chances of a psoriasis flare-up.
Food can often bring on a psoriasis attack. In particular, spicy foods may cause an increase in the occurrence of scaly, itchy skin. Coffee may also heighten the likelihood of a psoriasis outbreak. Indulging in hot showers may bring temporary comfort, but heat may aggravate psoriasis symptoms as well. To minimize psoriasis pain, keep showers short and moderate. Psoriasis sufferers should also keep in mind that dermatology care cannot help their symptoms if they don’t take their medications. Always adhere to your dermatologist’s recommendations regarding any prescribed treatment options.
