If you live with plaque psoriasis, then you know it can be quite painful. As your psoriatic skin flakes off, it exposes premature raw flesh underneath that just doesn't seem ready yet for fresh air. Certain areas are worse than others, and something you otherwise wouldn't think twice about - like putting your elbows on the table (sorry, Mom!) - suddenly sends a painful reminder that your poor skin is suffering.
As someone who also has dealt with the pain of living with psoriasis, I've discovered a few simple, natural ways to topically manage these unsightly spots. While none of these suggestions will cure your psoriasis - as psoriasis is just a symptom of a larger problem anyways, and treating just your skin alone won't cure it - they will hopefully ease some of your discomfort.
