Herbs and Natural Remedies
The use of natural treatment options can be effective for some when used in conjunction with traditional treatment options.
NPF suggest that you talk with your doctor before taking any herbal remedies to avoid dangerous interactions with your medications. Also, you should not take some herbal remedies if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, if you have pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure or mood disorders. Stop usage and consult your doctor immediately if you experience side effects.
Here are some of the more popular natural remedies that may help with your psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis.
According to some research, aloe vera has been shown to help reduce redness and scaling associated with psoriasis. Look for creams containing 0.5% aloe. The aloe plant gel can be applied to the skin up to three times a day.
Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar can be used to help relieve scalp itch from psoriasis. Stick with organic apple cider vinegar (which can be found at most grocery stores) and apply it to your scalp several times a week. Diluting the vinegar with water on a one-to-on ratio can help if you experience any burning sensation. Further, rinsing the skin once the solution has dried can help prevent irritation. Avoid using vinegar if you have open wounds, or if your skin is cracked or bleeding.
Capsaicin is the ingredient in chili peppers that make them spicy. When added to creams and ointments, capsaicin can block nerve endings that transmit pain. Capsaicin may also help to reduce inflammation, redness and scaling associated with psoriasis. However, more research is needed to assess its long-term benefits and safety. Some people may feel a burning sensation where capsaicin ointment is applied.
Dead Sea salts
One possible remedy for removing scales and easing itching associated with psoriasis is to add Dead Sea or Epsom salts to your warm (not hot) bath water and soaking in it for about 15 minutes. To avoid dry skin, apply moisturizer after bathing.
While there is no scientific evidence to support the use of oats to relieve symptoms associated with psoriasis, some individuals have reported a reduction in itch and redness when an oat paste or bath is applied to the skin.
Tea tree oil
Tea tree oil, native to Australia, is believed to have antiseptic qualities and can be applied to the skin. Some people find using shampoos with tea tree oil helps relieve their scalp psoriasis. However, there are no scientific studies to prove the effectiveness of tea tree oil on psoriasis. Use tea tree oil with care as some are allergic to it.
Turmeric has been frequently studied for its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, can alter gene expression. Research has found turmeric’s ability to alter TNF cytokine expression, which can help in minimizing psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis flares for some. You can take turmeric concentrated in pill or supplement form. It is also a main ingredient in many foods, including curries.
Mahonia Aquifolium (Oregon Grape)
Mahonia is a powerful antimicrobial herb that plays a role in immune response. Applying a cream containing 10% mahonia is effective in treating mild to moderate psoriasis. Because it is in the alkaloid family, mahonia should only be used topical unless under physician supervision.

Can Apple Cider Vinegar Help Psoriasis?
People with psoriasis have several treatment options, including biologic drugs, topicals, and light therapy. But many individuals who have the autoimmune condition turn to natural remedies as an alternative or a complement to pharmaceuticals. Of the natural solutions to promote health, apple cider vinegar has become one of the more popular ones.
“I have a number of patients who take apple cider vinegar for weight loss and for gut health and digestive problems,” says Pooja DeWilde, DO, a family medicine physician at Northwestern Medicine Regional Medical Group in Huntley, Illinois. “I have heard of people using it as a topical solution for mosquito bites, beestings, and toenail fungus. I don’t know the exact mechanism for how it might work, but I think it may have some antimicrobial, immune-boosting properties.”
An Ancient Treatment for Wounds
The idea of applying vinegar to the skin as a soothing agent dates back to 420 B.C., when the Greek physician Hippocrates recommended it for healing wounds.
RELATED: All About Apple Cider Vinegar
The National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) specifically endorses apple cider vinegar as a treatment to help stop scalp itch related to psoriasis. Vinegar gets its name from the French vin meaning “wine” and aigre meaning “sour.” The sourness comes from acetic acid in the vinegar, which can provide relief by killing bacteria. The acid also acts as an exfoliant, removing dead layers of skin so the psoriasis is less scaly.
Murky, brown, unfiltered apple vinegar is thought to pack an especially healthy punch because it typically contains the mother culture. The “mother” is a collection of bacteria that changes the alcohol in fermenting apple juice into acetic acid. (The mother is said to be similar to the SCOBY, symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast, in the fermented tea known as kombucha.)
Dilution With Water Avoids Risk of Burns
The NPF recommends creating a one-to-one-part solution of organic vinegar and water because straight-up vinegar can cause an unpleasant burning sensation.
“People can do a lot of damage with apple cider vinegar if they’re not careful,” says Matthew Lewis, MD, a dermatologist with Stanford Health Care. “The pH is around three, which is similar to lemon juice. If you leave it on your skin for too long, you can just burn — like a chemical burn. We definitely see those sorts of things in the office frequently — it just destroys the skin.”
Instead, Dr. Lewis directs patients to salicylic acid, which is a commonly available product used to help shed dead skin cells. Coal tar can also help by slowing the rapid growth of skin cells and ridding the body of dead skin.
If using a vinegar solution, the NPF advises rinsing the skin after applying it and to avoid using it if the skin is cracked or bleeding.
Beyond using vinegar on the scalp, a dilution of vinegar may be applied in a compress to soothe inflamed or weepy skin (a sign of infection), according to John Anthony, MD, a dermatologist with the Cleveland Clinic.
Does Consuming Vinegar Offer Benefits?
It may be counterintuitive, but some alternative health proponents suggest that apple cider vinegar becomes less acidic or more alkaline once inside the body. Vinegar fans believe that it improves overall gut health and the acid-alkaline balance, which may in turn help reduce inflammation.
So far, no scientific investigations have validated this. One animal study found that apple cider vinegar was ineffective as an anti-inflammatory agent. On the other hand, there is evidence the vinegar intake can have some health benefits. A study published in May 2018 in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine indicated that vinegar may help control blood sugar, possibly lowering diabetes risk, and a study published in August 2009 in the journal Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry showed that vinegar may reduce body weight and fat mass in obese people.
“There’s just not a lot of medical literature on the topic — more study is needed,” says Dr. Anthony.
If you do try drinking vinegar, do not take it undiluted. Potential health risks include damage to tooth enamel, burning of the lining of the esophagus, and upset to the stomach.
Other Potential Natural and Alternative Remedies
Complementary and alternative therapies sometimes used to improve symptoms of psoriasis range from mineral water baths, acupuncture, yoga, and meditation.
Although most of these approaches are safe, you should talk to your doctor before trying any new treatment or technique.
Anthony stresses that the mainstay topical solution is not “natural” but a steroid medication.
“For whatever reason, however, some people don’t want to take medication,” he says. “I think people want options. From my standpoint, there is no danger in using apple cider vinegar, so I never advise people not to use it.”
6 Ways To Use Apple Cider Vinegar For Treating Psoriasis Ravi Teja Tadimalla Hyderabd040-395603080 July 24, 2019
Psoriasis could be an embarrassing problem for most people. But lately, research has been talking about using apple cider vinegar for psoriasis treatment. We will discuss that (and a little more) in this post. Stay tuned.

Is Apple Cider Vinegar Good For Psoriasis?
The fact that ACV has been used since the ancient times as a disinfectant says a lot about it. Doctors from the 18th century were known to have used ACV to treat skin conditions like poison ivy. Given its antiseptic properties, ACV can help get rid of the irritation associated with psoriasis.
However, the evidence we have is mostly anecdotal. But there is no harm in using ACV for psoriasis treatment (don’t use it on open wounds, though). Which is why you sure can give it a try. Just ensure the ACV is organic, unfiltered, and raw as it contains beneficial bacteria.

How To Use Apple Cider Vinegar For Psoriasis Treatment
1. Isolated Apple Cider Vinegar
What You Need
- 2 to 3 tablespoons of ACV
- 1 glass of water
What You Need To Do
Mix the ingredients and consume the drink before dinner.
How Often Should You Do This
Once every day, before dinner.
Why This Works
Apple cider vinegar is known to make the pH levels of the body more alkaline – this improves digestive functioning and kills the toxins that cause viral or fungal infections. ACV also contains vitamins A, B1, B6, and C, minerals like potassium and iron, and alpha-hydroxy acids – all of which exfoliate the top layers of the skin.
2. Baking Soda And Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 tablespoon of ACV
- 1 tablespoon of baking soda
- Water (as required)
What To Do
- In a small bowl, add the apple cider vinegar.
- Add the baking soda and water, and mix well.
- Apply the mixture to the affected areas and leave it on for 30 minutes.
- Rinse the mixture off with lukewarm water and gently pat your skin dry.
Twice a day for 2 weeks, or until the symptoms subside.
Baking soda helps heal the skin with its anti-inflammatory properties. It also balances the pH levels of the skin.
3. Olive Oil And Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 to 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 to 2 tablespoons of ACV
- Water, as required
- Mix the ingredients and massage the mixture over the affected areas.
- Leave it on overnight. You might want to sleep on a plastic sheet to avoid soiling your bed covers.
- Gently wash in the morning with lukewarm water.
Once daily, before bedtime.
Olive oil has emollient properties, which help prevent dryness and make the skin smooth and supple. And the oil’s antioxidant properties prevent further damage to healthy skin cells.
4. Glycerin And Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 tablespoon of glycerin
- 1 tablespoon of ACV
- Mix the ingredients and apply the mixture to the affected areas.
- Leave it on for 30 minutes and then wash gently with lukewarm or cool water.
Twice a day, every day.
Glycerin moisturizes the skin and helps ease the irritation.
5. Honey And Apple Cider Vinegar For Psoriasis
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 1 tablespoon of ACV
- A pinch of cinnamon
- Mix the ingredients and consume this mixture.
- Follow by a glass of water.
You can also apply this mixture to your skin and wash after 30 minutes.
Honey has antioxidant properties that help fight the infection. And the hydroxycinnamaldehyde in cinnamon helps reduce the inflammation.
6. Lemon Juice And Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 tablespoon of ACV
- Juice of half a lemon
- ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- ½ teaspoon of honey
- A glass of lukewarm water
- Mix all the ingredients.
- Consume the mixture.
The citric acid in lemon fights inflammation and can help treat psoriasis. And the antioxidants in cayenne pepper can combat the infection from within.
We suggest you don’t apply this mixture on the affected areas due to the presence of lemon juice and cayenne pepper.
Back To TOC
Psoriasis doesn’t have to be an embarrassment anymore. Try apple cider vinegar – because it has worked for many. Just ensure to dilute it as too much of it might cause a burning sensation.

Apple cider vinegar has for many years being one of the go to natural treatments for psoriasis.
On a personal level, I only tried apple cider vinegar on my psoriasis (topically) once when I was 15 and totally desperate to find a cure. I only had psoriasis for one year at that time and in all honesty, I do not think I stuck with it long enough to see any positive results.
Therefore today’s “how to” article is based on research and not a personal success story. If you want to read my full personal view on apple cider vinegar, you can check out my apple cider vinegar psoriasis treatment review.
The following post will briefly explain what psoriasis is(for newbie readers), why apple cider vinegar can help and the different ways you can use apple cider vinegar to treat your psoriasis naturally.
What is psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic condition that causes the rapid growth of skin cells at a higher rate than average. As a result, you are left with dry, raised, red and scaly patches of skin. The skin may flake, burn, itch or sting. This condition may appear as small patches on the surface, or it could spread widely. Psoriasis is NOT contagious.
What is apple cider vinegar?
Apple cider vinegar is made by fermenting apple cider with specialized bacteria to form acidic vinegar. Apple cider is mostly used as a food preservative. More recently, it has gained popularity for its health benefits. It has antiseptic properties that can help relieve itching and irritation from psoriasis.
An apple a day keeps the psoriasis away ?!?
Is there scientific research to back up apple cider vinegar being good psoriasis (or just anecdotal evidence)?
There has been no scientific research done to determine the effects of apple cider vinegar for psoriasis. However, it has been mentioned as an anecdotal treatment by the Journal of Pharmacy Research.
According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, apple cider vinegar was used as a disinfectant in the past. The ancient Greeks used it to treat issues like obesity, diabetes, cholesterol levels, hair loss and various skin diseases.
PH Levels and nutrients which can tame a high acidic diet
Numerous studies have made a connection between pH and skin conditions like psoriasis, acne, and eczema. The excess acid in diets irritates the tissues of your skin and depletes them of the necessary minerals.
Therefore, it is advisable that you incorporate alkalizing foods to help tame high acidic diets. Some of the alkalizing foods include broccoli, molasses, lentils, and dark leafy vegetables.
How to use apple cider vinegar in treating psoriasis
There are two main ways one can use apple cider
vinegar to treat their psoriasis:
1. Externally by applying it on the affected area
2. Internally by drinking diluted ACV
Drinking ACV to help psoriasis
Most people who drink apple cider vinegar take a
tablespoon or two every day. They mix it with water and then drink. The ACV has to be diluted to prevent wearing of your tooth enamel. Undiluted vinegar can also cause burns to the sensitive areas in your mouth or throat.
How to treat scalp psoriasis with ACV
There are different ways used to treat scalp psoriasis with Apple cider vinegar. They include:
- You can mix a teaspoon of ACV with a teaspoon of baking soda to make a paste. This paste can be applied on the affected area as long as it is not an open lesion. The paste helps to relieve itching that is associated with psoriasis.
- After shampooing your hair, use apple cider vinegar to rinse your hair to treat scalp psoriasis. Mix water and the AVC on a 1:1 ratio and use the mixture to clean your scalp.
- Soak cotton balls in diluted vinegar and part your hair to apply the vinegar generously on the affected area on your scalp. Let it settle for at least thirty minutes and rinse it off with warm water.
How to use ACV in the bath
Another way to use ACV for psoriasis is to take a shower in it.
- Fill your bathtub with warm water
Add a cup of apple cider vinegar to the water
Soak in it for at least 30 minutes to allow the vinegar to get absorbed into your hair, scalp, and skin.
After that, take a cold shower to rinse off the vinegar from your body
Other than helping with psoriasis, using AVC in your bath helps to ward off bacteria, yeast, and fungi from your body due to the acidic nature of the vinegar.
How to apply ACV to a large patch of psoriasis on your body
For large spots, soak a cotton ball in pure ACV and apply it to the area. Let it dry overnight and then rinse it off in the morning when taking a shower. You can also use the compression method.
• Damp a clean cloth in warm water
• Mix a cup of ACV with two cups of warm water
• Place the fabric in the mixture and squeeze off the excess water
• Compress the warm clothing over the affected skin for about 20 to 30 seconds
• Repeat the process several times to relieve the itching
The vinegar improves the pH levels in your skin to reduce irritation
Any risks or warnings to be aware of when using ACV to treat psoriasis
On average, apple cider vinegar is safe to use for treating psoriasis. However, there are some risks associated with it which may include:
- Skin irritation – Apple cider vinegar can irritate your skin if not diluted properly. It should not be applied directly to an open wound.
- Allergic reaction – Just like any natural remedy, an allergic reaction is possible when using apple cider vinegar. Some of the symptoms to look out for include rashes or hives, fast heartbeat, dizziness and difficulty breathing.
- Worsening of certain conditions – When drunk, apple cider vinegar may erode your tooth enamel. It is advisable that you drink ACV through a straw to reduce tooth erosion. If you are on thinners, consult your health professional first before using ACV.
Other health benefits of ACV
Apart from efficiently relieving the itching and redness caused by psoriasis, apple cider vinegar can also be used for:
- Weight loss
- Detoxifying your body
- Offering antifungal protection
- Lowering blood pressure
- Cosmetic benefits for hair and skin
- Natural deodorant
Other conventional psoriasis treatment options
These treatments are applied directly to the affected area. They are recommended for mild psoriasis symptoms and can be purchased over the counter or through a doctor’s prescription.
Also known as phototherapy, light therapy is a psoriasis treatment that involves exposing the affected area to ultraviolet light on a regular basis. This procedure should be done under medical supervision.
This treatment can be taken orally or through injection. The drugs are prescribed for people with moderate to severe psoriasis.
Biologics are prescribed for moderate to severe psoriasis that has not responded well to other treatments. They are given by intravenous (IV) infusion or injection.
This is a prescription medication for adults with psoriasis. It should only be taken as directed by the doctor as it may have very severe side effects which include diarrhoea, nausea, and vomiting.
The Natural Way To Control Your Psoriasis
As you may have guessed, I do not believe in using the above conventional methods to treat your psoriasis. If you are reading this blog then you have, like me, tried all the above to no avail.
They may give short term relief but never long term and that is why you must look at your overall lifestyle to discover what your psoriasis triggers are and then put in place a plan to avoid those triggers.
The Smart Psoriasis Diet Plan looks are three key areas to improve your psoriasis once and for all. These are:
- Vitamin D Levels
- Diet & Supplements
- Stress Management

What is nail psoriasis, and how can I treat it?
If you have psoriasis, it’s important to check your fingernails and toenails for signs of nail psoriasis. Common signs include:
Tiny dents in your nails (called “nail pits”)
White, yellow, or brown discoloration
Nail(s) separating from your finger or toe
Buildup beneath your nail
Blood under your nail
If you notice any of these signs or another problem with a nail, tell your dermatologist. Treatment can help clear nail psoriasis and reduce pain. Without treatment, nail psoriasis may worsen. Some people develop “disappearing” nails. This can affect people’s ability to use their hands or walk. Treatment can prevent this.
Nail changes can also be a sign of psoriatic arthritis, so you want to see your dermatologist to find out. Treating psoriatic arthritis can prevent it from getting worse.
What nail psoriasis looks like
Nail psoriasis causes changes to your fingernails and toenails
This fingernail shows 3 signs of nail psoriasis: Crumbling, roughness, and blood under the nail (arrow).
Common signs of nail psoriasis

Nail psoriasis can be mild
If you have psoriasis, ridges and a thin line of blood beneath the nail (black arrow) can be signs of nail psoriasis.
Improvement from treatment happens slowly
Nails grow slowly, so it will take 6 months or longer to clear debris, a common sign of nail psoriasis, beneath the nail.
What treatments are available for nail psoriasis?
There are many treatments for nail psoriasis. Your treatment plan may include one or more of the following. Treatment you apply to the nails: This can be helpful for mild or early nail psoriasis. Nails grow slowly, so you’ll need to apply these treatments for several months, often once or twice a day. Because nail psoriasis can be stubborn, you may need to use more than one treatment. Sometimes, two medicines are combined to give you a faster response.
Treatment that you apply to your nails includes the follow.
A potent or very potent corticosteroid: This can be helpful for most signs and symptoms of nail psoriasis. It’s safe to use this medicine once or twice a day for up to nine months.
Calcipotriol: In one study, researchers found this to be as effective as a potent corticosteroid at treating the buildup beneath the nail.
Tazarotene: This treatment can be especially helpful for treating pitting, a separating nail, and discoloration.
If you need stronger treatment, your dermatologist may recommend treatment given in a dermatologist office or clinic. This treatment may include one of the following.
Injections of corticosteroids (or another psoriasis medicine): This involves getting injections directly into or near your nails with psoriasis. If the first treatment shows poor results, you may get another one in a few months. Corticosteroid injections can be effective for treating buildup under the nail, nail ridges, nail thickening, and nails separating from fingers or toes.
Laser treatment: Some lasers can be effective.
PUVA: This involves first soaking in (or taking) a medicine called psoralen. Afterwards, you are carefully exposed to UVA rays. PUVA can be effective for treating discolored nails and nails that are separating from fingers or toes. It does little to treat nail pitting.
Treatment that works throughout the body: If you have severe psoriasis and nail psoriasis, your dermatologist may prescribe medicine that can treat both your skin and nails. As with other treatment for nail psoriasis, it can take months to see results.
Psoriasis medicine that can help clear the skin and nails includes:
Nail infection needs treatment, too
A nail infection can develop if you have nail psoriasis. Because a nail infection can look a lot like nail psoriasis, it’s important to find out if you have an infection. Testing, which usually consists of scraping the nail, can find an infection. If you have a nail infection, treatment can get rid of it.
For best results from treatment
Treating nail psoriasis can be a challenge. It often takes time to treat. To get results, you need to treat your nails as directed and for as long as directed. Some patients need to try a few treatments to find one that works.
The right nail care can help you get the best results from treatment. You’ll find out what dermatologists recommend at: 7 easy-to-follow nail care tips that can reduce nail psoriasis
