Psoriasis: Treatment and Tips During the Holidays

The holidays bring joy, but also cold weather and stress.

Keeping Warm and Camouflaging Psoriasis During the Holiday Season

If you and the kids are headed outside for a day of sledding, the right choice of clothing could make the day much more enjoyable.

  • Even though wool might seem like a nice, warm option, many patients with psoriasis find that the texture of the fabric makes the itchiness of psoriasis more bothersome. Instead, try wearing layers of natural fabrics, such as silk or cotton, instead.
  • If you have psoriasis on your scalp that is prone to flaking, wear lighter colored tops and scarves to help disguise any white flecks that do fall.
  • If you can’t or don’t want to cover your psoriasis with clothing, there are cosmetic creams and cover-ups to help camouflage psoriasis. Though not foolproof, these creams can be applied to unbroken areas of skin and may minimize the appearance of psoriasis plaques and lesions.
