Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease. It is a type of disorder where the immune system attacks the body instead of defending it. It is a hereditary disease. When there is a Psoriasis outbreak, you will see large red areas on the skin with dry spots. The skin cracks in those areas and gives an itching sensation. It may appear on the nails and lips too. The Dead Sea offers four major types of treatments for this disease.

The air in the Dead Sea is dense with Bromine and other metals. They act as a filter for the sunlight. So, the rays don’t cause any skin burns. The air in the Dead Sea area has 5% more oxygen than at sea level. The combination of sun and oxygen helps in the healing process. This therapy lowers stress levels and makes the cell division process normal.
