6 effective ways to manage your stress when you have psoriasis

Stress on its own does not cause psoriasis. Stress and anxiety can trigger a psoriasis flare-up.  A stressed person may respond less promptly and favourably to several treatments. Therefore, treatments other than medication such as stress management are extremely vital to minimize flare-ups.

Having psoriasis is stressful in itself. The self-consciousness and worries of the people about the physical appearance can raise their emotional stress, which eventually causes psoriasis to increase.

If your psoriasis worsens when you are stressed do the following:

  • Identify your stress triggers. Stress triggers are not universal and usually vary from person to person.
  • Once you identify the trigger chalk out a proper action plan to cope-up with the triggers.
  • Focus on improving your interpersonal relations and spend more time with your friends and family.
  • Dialectical behaviour therapy ( to impart behavioural skills to handle stress and regulate feelings)
  • Avoid alcohol and nicotine use
  • Relaxation techniques like yoga and meditation can help cope up with stress.
