Answer

Parapsoriasis can be managed conservatively on the basis of symptoms, and often, topical treatment is effective. A novel treatment of parapsoriasis reported in 2018 is hydrogen-water bathing. This modality proposes water with increased reactive oxygen scavenging properties as the mechanism. In a small study in which parapsoriasis patients were bathed twice weekly over 8 weeks, four of six showed partial responses and two had complete remission. The treatment was well tolerated. [15]
