Cayenne pepper psoriasis treatment has been hailed in some quarters as one of the best alternatives for psoriasis patients although that is debatable depending with the experience that different people have had in the course of their treatment.

Trials have been done on different occasions using different products made from the pepper extracts commonly known as capsaicin and some tremendous results registered. Cayenne pepper psoriasis treatment helps reduce redness and scaling of the skin.
