Does aloe vera help in psoriasis?


There is some evidence to suggest that aloe vera may have benefits for people with psoriasis. Aloe vera is a plant that has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties. It contains anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties that can help soothe and hydrate the skin, which may provide relief from the symptoms of psoriasis.

Several small studies have looked at the use of aloe vera for psoriasis. One study found that a cream containing aloe vera was effective in reducing the severity of psoriasis in 83% of participants. Another study found that aloe vera gel applied topically was effective in reducing redness, scaling, and itching associated with psoriasis.

However, more research is needed to fully understand the potential benefits of aloe vera for psoriasis, and to determine the most effective dose and formulation of aloe vera for this condition. It is also important to note that aloe vera may not be suitable for everyone and may cause skin irritation or allergic reactions in some people. It is always recommended to consult with a healthcare provider before using any new treatment for psoriasis.
