Can Anyone Tell Me What Psoriasis Is?

Mar 19, 2008
Psoriasis is one kind of skin disease. It is basically an over reactive system that creates so many problems. Generally your body produces new skin cells once in a month.

When your skin becomes over reactive it produces new skins 8 to 10 times in a month. The new skin looks like an extra layer on the surface of your skin. Your body can not give a natural shape to the extra layer of skin because it is too tough for your system to cope up with an over reactive process.

All of these occur in a sudden and the process of regenerating the cells is too fast that the body can not be able to give it a proper shape. This unwanted extra layer of skin will be an awful problem to the patient of psoriasis.

Psoriasis can affect your life badly. The normal physical shape of anyone changes when he or she is suffering from this disease. This deadly skin disease can ruin your life. The people who are having psoriasis are really in a great danger.

Medical research says it is genetic. A person who has a family history of psoriasis never develops this disease suddenly. If they have any skin injury, strep infection, some specific meditation etc. it is noticed that the present skin problem is developing psoriasis.

Psoriasis is not a contagious disease. If your friend or any member of your family is affected by psoriasis it is not dangerous for you or anybody else. You can touch him or her without any fear. So do not misbehave with the person who is suffering from psoriasis. It can be curable by phototherapy treatment.

The ultraviolet ray is used to cure the problem. The common psoriasis disease is called plaque psoriasis. There is no specific treatment that can stop psoriasis entirely. The available popular skin treatments can give a temporary relief to the patient.

The patients who have lesions on their body because of psoriasis really suffer a lot. Psoriasis can affect on the body and the scalp. Lesions are seen at the affected areas of the body. There are instances where the scalp is affected dangerously and this becomes a reason for hair loss.

The forehead, neck are the most effected place when a person have scalp psoriasis. Scalp psoriasis is like dandruff. People often think that they are having a dandruff problem but they are actually suffering from scalp psoriasis.

The treatment of psoriasis depends on the nature of this problem. There are many types of treatments available at the present time. Phototherapy treatment is the latest treatment. Ultraviolet ray and laser ray are used to cure a patient of psoriasis.

In the case of psoriasis the skin produces new cells faster than the normal time. The rays are used to stop that quick regenerating process. Topical treatments are helpful to stop psoriasis.

In this treatment the doctors use ointments, lotions, creams shampoo etc. It helps the skin to normalize the regenerating process. It also provides a relief to the patient from the pain of the lesions.
