Psoriasis and Sulfur

Sulfur has been used in medicine for hundreds of years to treat various skin conditions. Psoriasis sufferers have reported benefits in the application of sulfur to the skin, as well as from sulfur baths. Balneotherapy, a type of treatment which involves soaking in sulfur-containing mud baths, is often prescribed in homeopathic medicine for treating various types of arthritis, including psoriatic arthritis.
