Oatmeal is known for its gentle effects on the skin, and in spite of popular belief, those suffering from psoriasis should take a bath in it. Soaking the area with psoriasis is beneficial indeed, but to get the full effect, one should fill the bathtub with this breakfast food and spend some time in it.

This type of treatment won't permanently rid one of psoriasis, but it will definitely decrease the side-effects.
