Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder i.e. it occurs as a result of the abnormal reaction of the body's immune system due to which the protective cells of the body start attacking its own body cells.
Psoriasis is an inflammatory condition of the skin where this faulty immune response affects the healthy skin tissues and damages them leading to the formation of shiny red, scaly patches of skin which recurrently shed off from the normal skin.
Parts of the body affected
While psoriasis may affect any part of the body, the most commonly affected areas are scalp, forearms, shin and belly –button.
Common types of psoriasis
- Plaque psoriasis
- Pustular Psoriasis
- Guttate Psoriasis
- Inverse Psoriasis
- Erythrodermic psoriasis
This classification is based on the types of the patches that form on the skin of a psoriatic patient. Among the above five types plaque psoriasis is the most common type and is found in more than 90 % of the cases.
Is Psoriasis a genetic disorder?
Patients with a family history of Psoriasis are genetically predisposed to develop Psoriasis to a large extent. Many studies have been conducted which are backed by scientific evidence in favor of this interpretation.
As many as one third of the patients having Psoriasis are found to have a genetic focus which backs the development of disease in them.
Genetic susceptibility along with a combination of trigger factors like the environmental factors come together and become reason enough to incite a flare up of the disease.
The condition usually worsens in winter, use of NSAIDs and psychological stress, dry skin, scratching the psoriatic lesions, cigarette smoking, obesity, hot water etc.
Is Psoriasis a contagious disease?
Psoriasis is not a contagious disease despite the hideous flaky patches which give a feel of some infection afflicting the skin.
In fact, the typical character of the flakes is the main diagnostic criteria for this condition.
Is it possible to cure Psoriasis?
There is no cure for Psoriasis. There are many treatment procedures that help control the frequency and intensity of the flare ups as and when they occur.
What are the complications of Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is not a curable disease and it comes back again to become a serious problem for the patient if not controlled. As the disease grows older, many complications seem to develop are or are possible to occur in case of Psoriasis.
The common problems associated with chronic psoriasis are Psoriatic arthritis, Cardio – vascular diseases, Crohn's disease, Depression and Lymphoma.
Can natural supplements help a case of psoriasis?
