Does Cold Water Therapy Help Psoriasis? I Tried It to Find Out

Medically reviewed by Allison Truong, M.D.

I hate being cold. There are three blankets on our sofa… and they’re all mine. My husband and I fight constantly over the heating—I hike it up, he cranks it down. Give me the choice between a beach vacation, and a ski resort and I’ll be on the sand before you can say, “How hot is it?”

Basically, I’m the last person anybody would expect to take a cold water challenge. But I’ve done it. Or, rather, I’m doing it—cold water therapy is now just another part of my daily routine, like brushing my teeth or putting on SPF sunscreen.
