What is itchy skin? - Itching is a common symptom for many people with psoriasis. A good basic skin care routine can help prevent these symptoms, through regular use of emollients to keep the skin from drying out.
Once symptoms occur, some people experience a transient relief by applying their regular high-water level emollient to the itchy skin, possible by the cooling effect that follows evaporation of the water from the skin surface. However, some formulations contain anti-itch (antipruritic) agents that may provide instant relief once the symptoms occur.
If you suffer from itchy skin, choose a moisturiser that contains lauromacrogols. Products containing this ingredient can help block the sensation of itch in the skin and soothe the itching.
