Before explaining how’s thermal springs can help in the treatment of psoriasis, let’s take a look at what this disease is.
Psoriasis is a chronic, non-contagious, inflammation of the skin which can occur at any age. Visible signs of the disease are redness and scaly patches. As well as the visible signs, psoriasis causes itching and burning sensations, the intensity of which varies from one sufferer to another. This disease often affects skin on the scalp, feet, hands, elbows and knees. It may also affect skin on the back too.
A genetic predisposition and stress are factors which can spark the appearance of the disease, though smoking and drinking too much alcohol can also cause psoriasis. Many treatments for the disease exist, some of which are more effective than others. Consultations with a medical practitioner will establish the presence if the condition and can monitor whether or not curative therapies are working.
Thermal water treatment of psoriasis can provide relief from the disease’s symptoms and reduce itching while at the same time purifying the skin. Spa treatments of psoriasis also help reduce stress which is something that may trigger an attack. The soothing, anti-inflammatory properties of thermal waters are among the best natural antidotes to itching and inflammation.
Spa treatment of psoriasis improves levels of health, as well as physical and mental wellbeing, the combination of which improves the quality of life for psoriasis sufferers.
