Psoriasis Treatment


Psoriasis is a condition of obscure aetiology characterized by erythematosus silvery plaques commonly occurring over scalp, knees & elbows. Psoriasis affects almost 2% of population and both males & females are equally affected. Onset of this disease is usually between 20 & 40 years of age though individuals of any age can have it. The diagnosis of Psoriasis can be made clinically.

Psoriasis information
Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease, which is characterized by the formation of thick red patches covered with silvery scales on the surface of skin. It is common among both men and women. It is usually found among persons in the age group of 15-30 years. Psoriasis usually takes place on elbows, knees, underarms and genital areas.

How is Psoriasis treated?
The goal in treatment of Psoriasis is to relieve discomfort and clear skin lesions. An individualized treatment plan is designed for each patient taking into consideration the age, general medical condition, severity & extent of disease.

What causes Psoriasis?
No one knows exactly what causes Psoriasis, but most researchers now conclude that it is related to the immune system (Psoriasis is often called an "immune-mediated" disorder). In Psoriasis, the immune system is somehow triggered, which in turn speeds up the growth cycle of skin cells. A normal skin cell matures in 28 to 30 days and is shed from the skin's surface unnoticed. But a psoriatic skin cell takes only 3 to 4 days to mature and move to the surface, and the cells pile up and form the elevated red lesions

Psoriasis appears to be slightly more prevalent in women than men. The average age of diagnosis is 28, and Psoriasis most commonly appears between the ages of 15 and 35. However, it can develop at any time—a first-time diagnosis of psoriasis has been seen in very old people and in new-born babies and small children. Psoriasis in infants is considered rare, although between 10 percent and 15 percent of those with psoriasis get it before age 10. About 150,000 to 260,000 new cases of psoriasis are diagnosed each year.

Other forms are: guttate, characterized by small dot-like lesions pustular, characterized by weeping lesions and intense scaling inverse, characterized by intense inflammation and little scaling erythrodermic, characterized by intense sloughing and inflammation of the skin Psoriasis can range from mild to moderate to very severe and disabling.

Is psoriasis contagious?
No, Psoriasis is not contagious. It is not something you can "catch" or "pass on." Lesions of Psoriasis may be unsightly, but they should not be regarded as an infection or an open wound. An individual with psoriasis poses no threat to the health or safety of others.

Which parts of the body are affected?
Psoriasis most commonly appears on the scalp, knees, elbows and torso. But psoriasis can develop anywhere, including the nails, palms, soles, genitals and face (which are rare). Often the lesions appear in a symmetrical fashion, in the same place on the right and left sides of the body.
