Eczema & Psoriasis Care and Treatment
Life can be quite miserable at times for people suffering from either Eczema or Psoriasis.
While these are two completely different conditions in many cases they have similar treatments.
Aims of a Treatment Regime
- combat redness
- reduce inflammation
- soothe the skin
- eliminate itch
- moisturise (moisturize) the affected areas
- deal with any secondary infections
The main aim of treatment is to reduce itchiness, inflammation and any secondary infection while increasing moisturisation.
It is vitally important not to over cleanse the skin. In fact we recommend only use cleansing agents when you are dirty and certainly only using a very small amount at any one time. When showering it is best to mainly use water and a soft wash puff for most of the body and when necessary, only using a small amount of our Honey & Oats or Billie Be Good Soap to cleanse areas such as armpits and the groin.
We highly recommend moisturising the whole body with a combination of light, calming oils immediately after showering. Moon Haven’s Calming Body Oil with Grapeseed Oil and Calendula is perfect for this purpose. Just apply a few drops to each limb and gently smooth over the affected areas.
It is vitally important to sooth those areas of the skin that are irritated and itchy. We suggest applying a small amount of the Chickweed & Plantain Salve to these places. Using the popstick provided just scrape out a small amount and apply to the affected areas. Do not rub or stimulate the skin as this can increase any irritation. Allow the salve to absorb over a few minutes. If you find that there is excess oil on the skin, after say 10 minutes then remember to use less next time.
4.Treat Infections and Broken Skin
It is common for the irritation caused by these conditions to be so severe that the skin becomes broken and often secondary infections set in. In this case we recommend applying a small amount of our Universal Herbal Ointment to the irritated and broken skin.
