The female itch mite has a length of about 0, 4 mm and 4 weeks of live. During this time it is doing moves under the surface layer of the skin and lays them on a daily basis for at least two or three eggs. From eggs after some time the larvae emerge, they are two weeks undergoing several transformations and become adult.

Mature itch mites rise to the surface of the skin, mate, after which the males die and fertilized females go deep into the skin, make moves, and lay eggs. These cycles can be repeated many times.

Contracted scabies can be in direct contact with the patient, as well as through his personal belongings.

To do this, opened the blind end of the itch course and taken the material examined under a microscope.

Aevitum psoriasis - how important it is?

For the treatment of psoriasis are used a lot of vitamins. But of particular importance are water-soluble B vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins A and E. The B vitamins - is the energy involved in the reaction to produce the energy required for proper cell metabolism. Without this energy cellular metabolism is disturbed, and hence the skin symptoms of psoriasis worse.

Vitamin A (retinol) is involved in the maturation of skin cells (keratogeneza). It has beneficial effects on the function of skin cells (keratinocytes), increases the digestion of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, stimulates the redox processes in the cells, the synthesis of cholesterol in the liver needed for the construction of steroid hormones, activates the immune processes in the skin. When there is a deficiency of retinol increased keratinization of the epidermis, which is manifested by dryness of the skin, peeling, and keratinization its surface layers - symptoms characteristic of psoriasis.

Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a major antioxidant that is, a substance inhibits the action of toxic free radicals formed in the cells as a result of metabolism. Tocopherol also stimulates cell metabolism by participating in the biosynthesis of DNA, RNA and tissue respiration.

In the treatment of psoriasis in the home is considered optimal assignment Aevitum complex preparation, which consists of vitamins A and E. Take it to the capsule a day for a month.

Psoriasis treatment at home - do cleansing of the body?

Almost always in the forums and non-professional sites discussed different ways to cleanse the body psoriasis. Interestingly, most of the discussed methods of purification official medicine are rejected as useless and even harmful.

So whether you want to cleansing the body in psoriasis? It turns out that it is necessary, but a cleansing of non-professionals and professionals understand different things. Many people believe that the first should be cleaned from the "toxins and fecal stones' intestines, and then all the other organs and then everything will be fine. But practice shows that these methods are not always effective and sometimes even cause direct harm to the body. Why is that?

The fact that the human body is in close contact with a plurality of microorganisms. All of them can be divided into useful to help the human body to exist in the external environment, opportunistic (which can harm only under certain conditions, including the decrease in the population of beneficial microorganisms) and pathogenic (disease-causing). In the gut of a healthy person develops the balance between beneficial and pathogenic microflora. If a policy of using the washing bowel enema, this equilibrium is disturbed more often, pathogenic microflora is activated, the process of digestion breaks down and is accompanied by the formation of toxic substances that stimulate the recurrence of psoriasis.

So what's intestines washing is absolutely contraindicated? Not at all, such washing, the doctor sometimes prescribed, including in the framework of the treatment of psoriasis. But only if this patient does have evidence in the form of digestive disorders, provoking exacerbation of psoriasis. If the intestine is working normally, "wash" it is not necessary.

For washing bowel enema usual will not work, it should pursue a policy of colon hydrotherapy (intestinal lavage with a special instrument), followed by a course of rehabilitation treatment.
