Tar preparates and direct sun light are a problematic combination.
In chronic inflamed skin diseases such as Psoriasis and neurodermitis,
tar preparates which are sold in the form of cream, gel, sculp
gel and bath supplement can provide versatile benefits with one
applicationr: Mixtures mainly comprising aromatic hydrocarbons
not only heal itch irritation but also are effective against isnflammations
and prevent infections. Additionally, in the skin desease, which
is called Psoriasis in the medical jargon, it prevents the skin
cells which increase and cause silver skin eruption on the elbows,
knees, coccyx area and the sculp due to the desease from spreading.
This "antiproliferatif effect" presumably is created
by individual tar components attaching to the hereditary substance
DNA. UV – radiation reinforces the cell growing preventive
effect, in such a way that doctors make use of it in the treatment
of Psoriasis. But at the same time the skin becomes more sensitive
Recommendation: In inflamed skin deseases the person to be treated
with tar preparates shouldn’t be exposed to direct sun light.
Experts recommend that the terapy should be restricted to four
weeks and should be applied under a doctor’s supervision.
