Psoriasis, A Chronic Dry Skin Disease

Mar 19, 2008
With the change of our lifestyles, we are facing ourselves wrapped with multiple health problems and diseases that are often dangerous and sometimes life threatening.

These diseases are generally called as life style diseases, as they take shape from the regular habits of our lives overall.

However, some diseases are less harmful and can be cured easily if taken care from an early stage. Psoriasis is one of them. The disease mainly affects the skin on the whole and is generally caused by dry skin.

Therefore, the first step to prevent the attack of psoriasis is to keep the body well nourished with moisturizer. It will also be easy to tackle the possible intervention of the disease if the symptom is noticed earlier and treated promptly.

Psoriasis, as the researches and studies reveal, is mainly a disease that is found more in the western developed countries. The fast life style and lack of personal hygiene consciousness lead to the outbreak of this particular disease.

Psoriasis, apart from the physical uneasiness, often causes psychological troubles too. The symptoms are very apparent as mainly it attacks the skin from outside.

What is a little bit dangerous factor about psoriasis is that the disease is a genetically inherited disease and can be persistent if avoided for a long time.

The nagging disorder of the skin makes it itching most of the times, and at the same time the skin develops layers like scale making it reddish and often bleeding.

Mild psoriasis is less dangerous but the situation becomes graver when it attacks a large part of the body. the medical researches reveal several types of psoriasis, but two of them are most common to attack the skin.

While explaining the reasons of psoriasis, first I can say that it is a persistent disorder of skin that results from the imbalance of immune system. Generally, the excessiveness of the white blood cells strengthens the body against infection and diseases.

Psoriasis is highly inflammatory and burning. Apart from the fast and stressed life style, there are other causes too contributing to the outbreak of the diseases.

Sudden changes of weather, intake of some particular drugs and medicines have been the accelerator of psoriasis. Even high blood pressure and depression may be enough dangerous to cause the same.

It is utterly frustrating that there are few medicines that really cure psoriasis. In reality, the researches are at full speed as the disease is being so common presently.

Nevertheless, some therapies are there that sometimes are helpful in treating the disease effectively. Apart from the same, some topical treatments like cream, ointments are also available.

However, they are hardly sufficient to eradicate the disease from root and provide just temporal relief. A dermatological consultation, in this situation, is essential to undergo proper treatment.

In addition to this, moistening the body frequently is an absolute pre condition to prevent or minimize the impact of the disease overall.

It is still now true in case of psoriasis that, prevention is better than cure, so try to prevent it or otherwise the persistent disorder may cause you a great hazard once it attacks.
