Introduction: Psoriasis vulgaris is an inflammatory and chronic disease, determined by multiple factors. Objective: Evaluate the effectiveness of treatment with 25% aloe cream, together with relaxation and visualization techniques, in patients with Psoriasis vulgaris at the Provincial Development Center of Natural and Traditional Medicine during the period December 2013 to December 2014. Material and Methods: A phase II clinical trial was conducted, open sequentially, for which there was a sample of 100 patients selected at simple random with the probability method. The sample was divided into two groups.  In the control group there was applied aloe cream 25% and in the study group there was imposed a combination therapy (aloe cream 25%, Relaxation -Visualization). Age, gender, skin color, family medical history of psoriasis, triggers, and categorization of patients as PASI: variables were operationalized. The information processing was performed using SPSS for version 15.0 statistical package. Results: There predominated the ages between 31 and 45 years (48%), male (44%) sex, white race (56%), and absence of family history of psorisis (82%). Combination therapy was significantly more effective than treatment alone with aloe cream and satisfaction was significantly higher in patients receiving combination therapy (88%). Conclusions: The combined treatment was significantly more effective than treatment with aloe cream only.
