Top Five homeopathic medicines for Guttate Psoriasis
Are you suffering from dryness, scaling and itching of the skin? You could be afflicted by Guttate Psoriasis. Though it may not come across as an incapacitating condition, it can disrupt the affected person’s daily routine by virtue of the pain, irritation and discomfort it causes.Homeopathy can not only alleviate the symptoms of Guttate Psoriasis but also tackle the root cause of the affliction. Homeopathic medicines assure an advantage over other systems of treatment in assuaging Guttate Psoriasis, as they are minus side-effects and are derived from natural substances.
Signs of Guttate Psoriasis
Psoriasis is an auto-immune disease of the skin, characterized by dryness, scaling and itching of the skin. It may occur in any part of the body. The guttate variety is marked by small, circular reddish lesions, particularly in the exposed parts of the body, such as the forearms, legs and rarely the trunk and back.
Best homoeopathic remedies for Guttate Psoriasis
I would recommend the following to be the top five homeopathic remedies for psoriasis, as they offer a holistic line of treatment that covers all forms of Guttate Psoriasis:
NATRUM MUR:- Homoeopathic medicine Natrum Mur is the leading remedy for treating cases of guttate psoriasis. The patient suffers from dry psoriatic patches mostly in the scalp, hairy margin, behind the ears, bends of joints and most of the exposed areas of skin. The lesions are dry and the skin peels easily. People needing Natrum Mur may exhibit an unusual craving for salt and salty things. This usually aggravates the itching. The persons may also experience an increase in the symptoms when they go to a hot, humid climate as found in coastal regions.
ARS IOD:- Ars Iod is also an excellent homoeopathic medicine for curing cases of guttate psoriasis characterized by an extremely dry skin which peels off easily. The patient may be very weak. Ars Iod promises relief from guttate psoriasis in people who also have respiratory complaints. The skin shows excessive scaling. As the skin peels, the underlying skin is exposed and there may be a thin watery discharge. Ars Iod can be prescribed to patients who are thin, emaciated and easily fatigued. They may also have profuse sweating at night.
SEPIA:- Homoeopathic medicine Sepia is especially suited for guttate psoriasis in females in who are in the menopausal or post-menopausal phase. There may be an uncontrollable desire to scratch as there is an excessive itching. Though the patient keeps on scratching, she does not get any relief and continued scratching gives rise to a sore, burning sensation in the affected part. Guttate psoriasis is associated with an extremely bad smell emanating from the skin. Sepia can be given to women who don’t demonstrate any feelings or emotions towards their family members, have lost all interest in their profession and take umbrage easily. The patient may cry at every little thing and is extremely moody and irritable.
SILICEA:- I find Silicea is another homoeopathic medicine which works well for guttate psoriasis. It is best prescribed for patients who have lesions that are tiny and look rosy red in color. As the lesions become old, the color changes to dark brown and then form into dry and white scales. Persons who require silicea may give off an offensive foot sweat. Silicea can be given in people who feel extremely cold and cannot tolerate even the mildest form of cold. The skin lesions may itch only in the day time and the patients feel better in the evening and night.
GRAPHITES:- I would pick homoeopathic medicine Graphites for treating skin ailments, especially in patients who may have a tendency to take cold easily. Graphites may be recommended for patients who are shy, timid and indecisive. The skin is rough and hard. Graphites can also be given in psoriasis of the nails where the nails are crippled and break easily. Nails are deformed and there may be cracks around the finger tips. In these cases, guttate psoriasis with lesions spreads all over the body.
