Dead Sea salt psoriasis cream may be beneficial in relieving the itch and pain caused by psoriasis. Although it is not a cure, it can help remove the scales of psoriasis and make people feel better.

What Is Dead Sea Salt Psoriasis Cream?

Some psoriasis sufferers have tried salt water to relieve their itchy or painful skin. Some have even made pilgrimages to the world's saltiest lake, the Dead Sea.
The Dead Sea is excellent for psoriatic treatment. However, no one knows if the water itself has merit or whether the sun is the important part. As the lowest point on the planet, the Dead Sea region has unique weather and receives a distinctive spectrum of ultraviolet light from the sun.

Is It Effective?

Using Dead Sea salt psoriasis cream or soaking in bath water containing Dead Sea salts or Epsom salts may have limited value. It can help remove the scales of psoriasis and make people feel better, but no one has shown these salts or creams to cure psoriasis.
