To help remove scales and soothe inflamed skin, soak for at least 15 minutes each day in a warm bath. Avoid hot water and harsh soaps, which can worsen psoriasis symptoms. Try adding a special bath solution that contains colloidal oatmeal, various oils, Epsom salts, Dead Sea salts or coal tar to the water. Blot your skin dry - don't rub - and moisturize after your bath.
