227 Home Remedies for Psoriasis

Dr Chaithanya KS

These are the few best home remedy in Psoriasis that you should try. These are found more effective in reducing psoriasis symptoms like scaling of skin, dryness and cracks. Though there are many remedies to get rid of the scaly patchy skin, I found these home remedies are most effective when they are used regularly. I have seen the scaly patches disappeared for a very long time. These home remedies can give best results if you do it regularly.

Old Ghee:


Application of old Ghee is beneficial in psoriasis. As its said that the ghee which is more than year old has the quality to pacify Tridoshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha), Kustahara (cures skin disease) and Visahara (removes the toxins). The ghee increases its qualities as it gets older.



Pathological changes in sweat channel (swedavaha sroto dusthi) is considered as an important factor in psoriasis, resulting in symptoms like dryness and cracks. Doing moderate exercise will help to induce sweat, thus it keeps sweat channel clear flushes out the waste products which has to be excreted.

Organic food:


Organic food prevents the harmful chemicals entering into the body and has more beneficial nutrients. As organic foods are rich in natural nutritional factors, they easily get assimilated to produce required physiological function. An added advantage of organic food is for the people who have allergies to foods, chemicals, or preservatives, have found that the symptoms are reduced or completely cured by switching to organic food.



As stress is one of the triggering factors in psoriasis, leading a stress-free life will help to reduce the psoriasis flares. Meditation is a great stress reducer. Reducing stress will help relieve the pain and itch of psoriasis plaques. Daily 20 to 30 mins of meditation will help to reduce stress.

Avoiding Soap and Shampoos:


Soaps and shampoos remove natural oils from the skin. This makes skin drier in psoriasis. Instead, use powders prepared with Green gram (whole moong), Besan(chickpea flour) powder for the bath. Adding few neem leaves to water is also beneficial.


Im' affected with Psoriasis since 4 decades. I've used countless remedies, and about one year ago, my doctor gave my some homeopathic pills called Naja 200. My skin is in comparison to before nearly clear, there are only a few red spots on my ellbows. Before I had it everywhere on by body.


I have been struggling with scalp psoriasis for a few years now. Couple months ago I decided to completely change my diet and combine that with some home remedies, like coal tar shampoo and olive oil. So far the results I am seeing are rather good, and this is giving me hope that if I stay persistent in some time my psoriasis will further withdraw to the point it won't be such a major problem for me.


My main treatment follows what I have outlined below and believe me i have no itch, no pain ...none of that anymore which is a real big change from what I was going through last few years. I really believe I have cured myself completely. I took coconut oil and got rid of dandruff in one day believe it or not. And the rest started to go away after 3-4 months. After researching the internet so much, I tied my cause to Candida overgrowth and did the treatment that was suggested on a websit. I am eating just about everything nowadays. For a few weeks or so i was extremely strict avoiding sugar -even from fruits, carbs, milk. I eat a lot of meat/salads nowadays unlike ever before.

1. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (starting with one or two teaspoons a day and gradually increase it up to 3-4 tablespoons a day)

2. Biofase (yeast infection candida website)

3. Probiotics ( I take this particular kind called Prescript --- you can get it from Amazon Prescript-Assist Broad Spectrum Probiotic Prebiotic Complex (60 Caps)

4. Magnesium (I take 2x400 mg to have regular bowel movements -- it is very important... for me it is better than colonics :-))

5. Oil of Oregano/Grape Seed Extract / Black Walnut wormwood -- I have all these but I am not consistent in taking these but they are good for getting rid of fungus/parasites.

6. Milk Thistle (good for the liver -- I have it but not consistent taking them either)

I do (1-4 religiously) -- I did go through what they call a 'die-off' period after consuming a lot of coconut oil -- my body wasn't eliminating all the dead toxins fast enough, so it got worse before it started to get better.

I hope this helps and it truly makes a difference. I can honestly say it has for me.


I have been plagued by psoriasis for the last 32 years. 18 years ago, I found a product called Exorex, Gel no. 2. I have used it since and have very rare occurrence of it returning, and it also worked on my 8 year old daughter who at the time, faired up with her entire back covered, within three weeks of using this, she was clear!!


What's been helping me greatly, and causing a drastic decrease in symptoms:

- drinking much more water

- avoiding harsh soaps and cleansers and bar soaps that dry skin out

- using Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream moisturizer in morning and at night, it has gotten rid of flaking, redness, itching and pain, and makes my skin smooth and soft


I had psoriasis for 28 years until recently...

Hello. My name is Kimbol and I had psoriasis for 28 years until earlier this year. My psoriasis was on my scalp, legs, knees, feet, arms, armpits, and back. I was on Methotrexate for 5 months in the early 90's. It cleared my stomach and back but didn't send it into remission. I had plaque, guttate and inverse psoriasis.
I posted this as comments for several individuals here who had questions about cures but I thought you could let the group know what has worked for me for the last 10 months.

My story: I kept praying every day for God to give me the wisdom to make this go away.
In January 2014, I settled on one diet. I also began taking over the counter vitamin supplements.
Over a 3 month time period, I gradually began to see my psoriasis almost disappear. What had changed? More prayer I know, without a Doubt.
I began walking a lot and changed my eating habits to a mostly vegetable diet with some chicken or fish only once/twice a week.
I do not drink or eat anything ‘diet’ or any alcohol.
I began taking supplements in February 2014. This is when I began to really notice a change in my psoriasis.
Daily x 5 Day schedule:
Vitamin C 1000 U 2 tablets 500 mg
Vitamin D 2000 U 2 tablets 1000 i.u.
Multi vitamin 1 daily
Milk Thistle 1000 mg (4 capsules)
1 x a week
Iron 70 mg (2 tablets)
In addition to my weekly diet of oatmeal, lots of fresh salads, baked chicken/fish, fresh steamed vegetables, 4-5 slices of rye bread, some yogurt, salsa, and fresh fruit along with 4-6 large glasses of water daily.
I was feeling better daily and I could almost hop up 3 flights of stairs at my apartment after 2-3 weeks on this regiment of exercise, food and supplements.
April 2014 - I am 62 and I am feeling so much better. No psoriasis scales.
I work outside on the road and I walk extra on the weekends. I wear short sleeve shirts and shorts in my free time. I play golf, ride my motorcycle and help out on a horse farm in my spare time.
Dec 2014 - I am now 63 and I have been psoriasis free for 9 months! Praise God. I eat normal food now without restrictions, I do not drink anything Diet or anything with sugar or alcohol and I walk a lot.
I continue taking supplements daily 5 days a week.
1000 mg Milk Thistle, 4000 Vitamin D, 2000 mg Vitamin C, 1200 mg Fish Oil, and 1 Multi Vitamin.
2 days a week - 130 mg Iron.
Check with your nutritionist or doctor to see if you can take these supplements especially if you are on medication.
Jan 2015 - Psoriasis has not returned for the last 10 months. But I still have major stress to deal with. I do have small areas of dry skin that will show up on my arms only if I stop or skip a few days but they disappear when i start the supplements again.
Dr. James Winer of Pittsburgh stated we should be identify the source of the problem: the toxins that are absorbed by the liver and are brought out on the surface of the skin as psoriasis, then you can develop a regiment that can put this nightmare in remission. I tried everything and went to multiple doctors for 28 years just to find out it was this simple. The medical community does not agree with my success but cannot dispute it either. I pray this will help someone.

I hope it will also help others. I will be glad to answer questions of my success. God Bless.


I am living with Psorosis for the past 25+ years.

I am just drinking Luke warm water with one table spoon of Turmaric power every morning and night.

After bath I just apply coconut oil on body.

IT is not 100% cure but I am feeling good...


Using a cream with few ingredients and high level of glycerin helped a lot. (SKINTIFIQUE Gel showed great results for a severe hand psoriasis which was just getting worse and worse the last 3 years...)


Very important to understand there's TWO steps here:
1. Clear it up some way.
2. Maintenance is less intense.

Many powerful remedies don't need to be continued or can be dramatically lowered at maintenance than the more intense efforts needed to clear it up. Remember, its two things!!!
