Tanning for Psoriasis Treatment

5 out of 5 stars

I've had guttate/plaque Psoriasis since I was 16, and I fear that now I may be developing inverse Psoriasis. Now I'm 25 and have been without health insurance since I was 21, so needless to say I've had to be pretty creative with my treatment. For the first 5 years I used a clobetasol propionate steroid oinment, which worked well until I became steroid dependant. I've developed secondary skin infections from overnight flare ups, and it seems like any tiny change in the environment or in my body will trigger it.

I find that tanning is the fastest way to treat it but if you don't get rid of it fast enough then you just get way to dark! I read that things like celery, oranges, and flaxseed contain something called Psoralen with helps your body process UV rays more effectively. Even if you don't tan indoors but you live somewhere like South Texas (where we also have the possibly worst allergens), I learned that eating 4-5 sticks of celery or drinking a single serving of pure OJ before sun exposure really does wonder. So much so, that you can even feel a tingly sensation inside your skin when it's working. Cool, right? I actually got on here to find other remedies, since I'm having a severe flareup at the moment. But as I was thinking about how well that used to work, I got excited and wanted to tell you all about it! A little carried away, maybe....
