Psoriasis can cause problems on different parts of your body, and one of the most frustrating forms of this condition is facial psoriasis. This skin condition causes silver scales and rashes that can itch to no end.

If it becomes severe enough, even open lesions can appear. Men and women can both fall victim to facial psoriasis and it usually shows itself between the late teens and early 20′s. Facial psoriasis often peaks for a second time when a person reaches their 50′s.

Psoriasis of the face can usually be found in the eyebrows, at the hairline and above the upper lip.

What causes facial psoriasis?

Facial Psoriasis occurs when cells in the outermost layer of skin start reproducing faster than they normally should. They end up piling up on the surface of the skin and producing the scale that is so common of this condition of facial psoriasis. There are many things that can cause facial psoriasis including: sunburn, compromised immune system, viral rash, medications, drug rashes, infections, damage to the skin, smoking, bug bites, alcohol consumption, abrasions and atmospheric conditions.

If you think that you might be suffering from facial psoriasis then you need to see your doctor for a diagnosis. They will take a close look at the lesions on your skin and possibly perform a biopsy, in order to be sure it is not another type of skin disease.

Treatment options for facial psoriasis

If your diagnosis is positive for facial psoriasis, the doctor is likely to prescribe some type of steroidal cream for you to use. You need to be cautious with these types of prescriptions because using them for a long period of time can cause problems with your skin in the long term. Problems such as thinning of the skin and other side effects can often crop up. Make sure that you discuss this with your doctor before you accept a prescription for a topical steroid to treat your psoriasis.

Natural treatment options for facial psoriasis

You might want to consider using a natural medicine to treat your facial psoriasis rather than conventional prescription creams. They are very gentle and do not have any known side effects. Natural remedies are also not manufactured alongside harsh chemicals.

Spirulina is a good choice if you are dealing with facial psoriasis. It helps to increase the metabolism of the skin and can help to get rid of tiny lines and creases that appear on it. Dandelion can also be helpful because of it’s ability to detoxify the skin and keep the blood and lymphatic system pure. The end result is more moist skin.

If you are looking to improve the texture, tone and strength of your facial skin then you should look no further than horsetail and rosemary.

There’s little doubt that facial psoriasis can cause you to become depressed and damage your self confidence. However, with a vigorous treatment plan and the right medicines, facial psoriasis can be managed successfully.
