A chronic skin condition, Psoriasis presents as an overproduction of skin cells.. most commonly on the elbows, knees and scalp where dry and scaly patches can be seen.
Homeopathy has been used successfully to treat this condition but it can take a long time to clear as the sufferer will often have had it for a long time.
Psoriasis requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
