first of all I am totally, totally, surprised to read a comment depicting an identical orredeal I too subject myself to:-) Ant that is really vary rare. mostly, people will tell you , you only aggrevate the condition, but that results, I believe, from their different skin-determined, needs and self-helping habits.
I just soften the woter with a simple shampoo or something and soak just like you, after which I use a coarse sponge to remove the scales. I just wish so much that psoriasis were like viltigo or something-reduced only to discoloratoion.
I hardy use any salts or such other things because they're pretyy expensive (i am chronicly jobless, as I the soaking tussle keeps me marooned to my towon, where there is little employment and what fal-mate could bear with me soaking so long?). once i am done with the soaking I lather my body copiouslu with body lotions, as the skin is extremely dehydrated and dessicated. but I gain the necesasary comfort and elementary ability of daily functioning at the cost of soaking-induced dehyadration. everything, so it seems, has its price.
Guys, U need to remember that when someone soaks for 1-2 hrs, that is not because they relish the duration, but because it just takes them so long to get things done with their, highly individual , type of psoriaisis and how it , sort of, works in them. I would be totally unable to function on a daliy baseis, if i did not soak and thus helped myself. I just can't spend my ligfe in a dermatological ward, can I? so those things come at a cost. only 1/4 of the sufferers have moderate to severe cases, so some people's surprise at what others do is a small wonder. so despite that it dehydrates, the oredeal helps at a different level. all those steroid creams ruin your skin in the long run, but still they're prescribed and used. mtx and other drugs destroy your vital,organs, but help with the condition sometimes. so that soaking procedure,so to say, is just a necessity and those going througbh it are not masochistic by far.
