These recommendations are from our experience as well as a collection of Psoriasis patients we've learned from.

1. Phototherapy is our favorite treatment. It is natural, safe, and effective for most people.

2. A well made soap is always helpful to calm Psoriasis. This is our favorite:

3. Tar products are very helpful for Psoriasis. Usually LCD mixtures have about 20% or less tar in the product.

4. Enbrel can work well for some people with Psoriasis. Dermatologist approval, prescription, and injections are needed.

5. Clobetasol is a fairly widely used, effective ointment used for Psoriasis. A prescription is needed.

6. Dovonex is a great skin cream which can be prescribed. It isn't very strong, so it may take some time to take effect. This one also needs a prescription.

7. Protopic is a very effective prescription ointment which can be prescribed for use on the face, ears, or genitals.

8. Cetaphil is a moisturizer which you can buy over the counter. It is an excellent way to help keep moisture in the skin and avoid more Psoriasis flare ups. These are the best two lotions to moisturize psoriasis.

Psoriatic Arthritis Treatments

Psoriatic Arthritis treatments are necessary to help reduce Arthritis pain and swelling, slow / prevent joint damage, and relieve Psoriasis skin pain and inflammation. These are the best two lotions to moisturize psoriasis.

The primary treatments for Psoriatic Arthritis include medication, physical therapy / exercise, and lifestyle changes. Your doctor can prescribe topical creams and ointments, oral medications, physical therapy / exercise, and phototherapy / sunlight treatment.

Some treatments your doctor may choose from to prescribe include corticosteroids for a short time. These are generally not used very long due to side effects.

Other treatments prescribed by a doctor may include nonsteroidal anti-inflammarory drugs such as aspirin or ibuprofen. Another category of drugs are disease modigying antirheumatic drugs such as methotrexate, hydroxychloroquine, and sulfasalazine. Another category of drugs, tumor necrosis factor blockers, include etanercept, adalimumab, infliximab, and others.

Most importantly, your treatment is between you and your doctor. What will work best for one person may not work best for the next.
