psoriasis help

Hello! My husband suffers from psoriasis and I was wondering if anyone has had any success with skin care that has helped. Is it bad to use AHA’s? Would retinol help? I would appreciate any info, thanks in advance!

I probably wont use AHA and/or retinol. That may make the situation worst. Has he been seen by a derm? depending on how bad it is it can range from requiring steroid creams to highly emollient creams. Depending on types or triggers For something over the counter: I would opt for gentle products like baby washes, emollient creams. etc Avene Xera Calm Balm or cream is great. Ingredients like colloidal oats, ceramides are great too, AHA/Retinol will irritated the already irritated, inflammed or crusty skin

One of my friend has a psoriasis and he use products with salicylic acids. Gel gleansers. Also, he advises to use ointment based moisturizers, for super dry skin, maybe it is better to use oils.
