Understanding Psoriasis

Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition that causes cells to build up rapidly on the skin's surface. The extra skin cells form scales and red patches, which are often associated with itching and flaking.

Psoriasis can be painful and affect quality of life, making it difficult to concentrate or sleep. This skin condition generally goes through cycles, having flare-ups every few weeks. Cuts, infections, and certain medications can also trigger these flare-ups.

Various treatments can help improve psoriasis symptoms. Combining these with better lifestyle habits and coping strategies can help manage the disease in the long term.

What is Psoriasis?

A chronic skin disease, Psoriasis is characterised by scaly, red patches on the skin, usually on the scalp (scalp Psoriasis), elbows, knees, lower back, and genitals. In some cases, Psoriasis can also affect fingernails.

Psoriasis disease is not contagious, and in most people, the rash is limited to a few patches of skin. In severe cases, however, it can cover large body areas. The common symptoms of Psoriasis include:

  • Red, raised, and inflamed patches of skin
  • Whitish-silver scaly skin or plaques covering the patches (plaque Psoriasis)
  • Soreness around the patches
  • Dry skin that may crack and bleed
  • Itching and burning sensation
  • Thick and pitted nails
  • Painful and swollen joints

The symptoms of Psoriasis vary depending upon the type of Psoriasis.

Causes of Psoriasis

Skin Psoriasis is a chronic disease in which the immune system mistakenly attacks the body's skin cells. Normally, the skin cells are replaced every 28 to 30 days, but in Psoriasis, new cells grow and build up on the surface of the skin every 3 to 4 days.

This rapid buildup of new cells creates silvery scales of Psoriasis on the skin. While genetic factors and immune system responses cause Psoriasis, it can be triggered by different factors, such as stress, environment, and smoking.

Genetic Factors

Genetics plays a significant role in developing Psoriasis, an inherited condition. If you have an immediate family member who has Psoriasis, you are likely at an increased risk of developing it yourself.

Immune System Responses

As mentioned above, Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition wherein the body's defence systems, i.e., white blood cells or T cells, attack the body. In Psoriasis, these T cells make skin cells their target.

As a result, skin cell production increases, causing rapid skin cell development. When skin cells are moved to the surface, they form a pile, developing scales and red, inflamed areas.

Once you have Psoriasis, various triggers can lead to the onset or flare-up of the condition, depending on the type of Psoriasis and your body's response. Some common triggers include:

  1. Stress

    Your body creates an inflammatory reaction to stress, which can lead to the onset of Psoriasis symptoms.

  2. Throat and Skin Infection

    Any infection can cause your immune system to weaken, leading to a flare-up of psoriasis.

  3. Certain Medications

    Medications like beta-blockers and anti-malarial drugs can also sometimes lead to Psoriasis flare-ups.

  4. Injury or Surgery

    A skin injury is a common trigger for psoriasis. Burns, scrapes, cuts, and surgery-associated cuts can also cause symptoms.

  5. Environmental Triggers

    Various environmental triggers, especially cold and dry weather, can cause Psoriasis to flare up as the skin becomes dry.

  6. Alcohol and Smoking

    By making your skin dry and triggering an autoimmune reaction, smoking and excessive alcohol intake pose a risk to your Psoriasis flare-ups.

Types of Psoriasis Explained

Psoriasis is a condition that can manifest with varying symptoms that determine the type of skin disease. It can also affect different parts of the body, including the joints and nails.

Different Psoriasis types also have varying progressions. For instance, it might start on your skin and progress to your nails later. The different types of Psoriasis include:

Plaque Psoriasis

This is the most common type of Psoriasis, characterised by the development of red, scaly, and thickened patches of skin that can be itchy and painful. These patches usually occur on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back.

Guttate Psoriasis

A bacterial infection often triggers this Psoriasis, which appears as small, pinkish-red spots on the skin. It commonly affects children and young adults.

Pustular Psoriasis

This type of Psoriasis is characterised by the formation of pus-filled blisters on the skin, which can be painful and cause fever and chills. It can occur anywhere on the body, but it's most commonly found on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet.

Inverse Psoriasis

This type of Psoriasis occurs in skin folds, such as the armpits, groin, and under the breasts. It's characterised by smooth, shiny red patches that can be itchy and painful.

Erythrodermic Psoriasis

This is a rare and severe form of Psoriasis that covers most of the body with a fiery red rash that can cause severe itching, pain, and swelling. It can also cause fever, rapid heart rate, and severe dehydration.

Nail Psoriasis

This type of Psoriasis affects the nails, causing them to become pitted, discoloured, and thickened. It can also cause the nail to separate from the nail bed, and in severe cases, the nail may crumble or even fall off.

Scalp Psoriasis

This type of Psoriasis affects the scalp, causing red, itchy, and scaly patches. It can also cause silvery-white scales, dandruff-like flakes, and hair loss in severe cases.

Psoriasis comes in various forms, and having more than one type is possible. A few people get a second kind of Psoriasis after years of having the first one; as a result, they have two different types of Psoriasis on their skin.

Targeted Psoriasis Treatments

Since psoriasis is a disease that cannot be cured, it is vital to target the symptoms and take therapies that can help prevent or reduce future flare-ups for easy management of the condition. The different targeted Psoriasis treatment approaches include:

Conventional Psoriasis Medications

There are many conventional treatments for Psoriasis ranging from topical treatments, coal tar shampoos, and salicylic acid for mild Psoriasis to ultraviolet light, phototherapy for Psoriasis, light therapy for Psoriasis, UVB phototherapy, and excimer lasers for moderate to severe Psoriasis.

While these treatments for psoriasis may not worsen the Condition, they do not assure a permanent cure. Even the best dermatologist does not guarantee a permanent cure.

Systemic Treatments

Systemic skin Psoriasis treatments include conventional medications like methotrexate, cyclosporine, and acitretin, which act as immunosuppressants and help control skin growth.

These medications are coupled with skin Psoriasis treatment through TNF-alpha inhibitors, IL-17 inhibitors, and IL-23 inhibitors that help prevent the development of Psoriasis symptoms. Other systemic Psoriasis treatments include small-molecule inhibitors.

Using systemic approaches for treating Psoriasis helps ensure a comprehensive approach where the medications work inside the body and stop the disease from spreading by controlling the immune response.

Homeopathy Treatments for Psoriasis

Homeopathic Psoriasis medications are derived from natural sources and are focused on treating the symptoms and triggers of the condition. Common homeopathic Psoriasis medications include:

  • Sepia
  • Arsenic album
  • Sulphur
  • Calcarea carbonica
  • Mercurius solubilis

Benefits of Homeopathy for Psoriasis

Psoriasis homeopathy treatment offers long-lasting results without any side effects. Homeopathic medicine helps build the patient's immunity, resulting in better management of psoriasis. It also considers precipitating factors like infections and stress that can flare up Psoriasis disease.

Homeopathic treatment for psoriasis also controls the disease's progression and reduces the chances of complications. Homeopathic treatments for Psoriasis skin disease are individual to each patient's symptoms and type, and they are safe and effective without any side effects. This is why most people consider homeopathy the best medicine for Psoriasis.

Self-Care and Lifestyle Adjustments for Psoriasis

In addition to Psoriasis disease medicine, there are certain lifestyle changes and self-care habits that you should teach to help improve the condition and prevent flare-ups. You can try adopting the following for Psoriasis management:

Daily Skincare Routine

Develop a daily skincare routine using Psoriasis-friendly products to help prevent dead skin cells buildup and maintain moisture in your skin. Skin dryness is a commonly known Psoriasis trigger. Moreover, the buildup of dirt or bacteria on the skin due to poor hygiene can aggravate the condition.

Moisturising Tips

Moisturising your skin is vital to help your skin heal while reducing discomfort and itching. To effectively moisturise your skin:

  • Apply the moisturiser when your skin is moist. Blot your skin instead of wiping after a bath, and apply the moisturiser to help seal the moisture into your skin.
  • Reapply moisturiser multiple times during dry, cold weather.
  • Opt for a thick, rich moisturising cream or ointment, which can help reduce inflammation.

Appropriate Bathing Practices

This chronic skin condition can also be managed with daily baths. A soothing bath can help ease inflammation and itching and loosen dry, scaly skin patches. Use warm water for the bath, as hot water can cause the skin to dry out.

In addition, keep the bath short and use a gentle cleanser. You can also add bath oils and Epsom salts to the bath. Make sure to pat dry your skin gently instead of harsh wiping, which can further irritate the skin.

Managing Psoriasis Triggers

It is essential to track your Psoriasis triggers as they are unique to you. You can start by keeping a diary and cross-checking factors during your flare-ups. This could induce stress, medications, and the weather. By identifying and analysing your triggers, you can take steps to manage and avoid them.

Use Gentle, Fragrance-Free Products

Since Psoriasis causes excessive skin irritation, it is best to use gentle, fragrance-free products. Otherwise, you may trigger a reaction due to the parabens and fragrances contained in other products.

Diet and Exercise

While not directly linked to Psoriasis, diet and exercise can help manage the triggers. By consuming a well-balanced diet, you can strengthen your immune system. In addition, exercise helps maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of diseases linked to Psoriasis, such as heart and liver disease. Moreover, exercising outside has dual benefits, as you receive natural light therapy and can reduce stress.

Stress Management Techniques

Stress is one of the most common triggers of Psoriasis flare-ups. Therefore, introducing stress management techniques such as meditation, exercise, and proper sleep can help reduce stress levels and prevent frequent flare-ups.

When to Seek Professional Help For Skin Psoriasis Treatment

It is best to seek professional help for Psoriasis treatment as soon as you suspect its symptoms. You must approach a doctor if:

  • The condition becomes widespread or severe
  • You have excessive pain and discomfort
  • You are concerned about the appearance of the skin
  • The existing treatment is not working

Particular Focus: Scalp Psoriasis Management

Scalp Psoriasis is one of the most potent forms of Psoriasis. Appearing as thick, discoloured patches on the scalp, scalp Psoriasis can also cause hair fall without treatment, further affecting a person's self-esteem. Therefore, getting timely scalp Psoriasis treatment is important.

Understanding Scalp Psoriasis

Scalp Psoriasis is a common type of Psoriasis that affects the scalp. It causes red, itchy, and scaly patches on the scalp that silvery-white scales and dandruff-like flakes can accompany. Scalp Psoriasis can be a chronic and challenging condition, but effective and safe treatment options are available, like homeopathy.

Causes of Scalp Psoriasis?

Scalp Psoriasis is a subtype of Psoriasis that appears on the scalp and can range from mild to severe. The exact cause of scalp Psoriasis is unknown, but scientists suggest it combines genetic and environmental factors. Here are some possible causes and risk factors associated with scalp Psoriasis:


A family history of Psoriasis increases the risk of developing scalp Psoriasis.

Immune System

Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition, and the immune system is believed to play a role in its development.


Stress can trigger or worsen Psoriasis symptoms, including scalp Psoriasis.


Infections such as strep throat can trigger or worsen Psoriasis symptoms.

Environmental Factors

Cold weather, dry air, and low humidity can worsen Psoriasis symptoms, including scalp Psoriasis.

Lifestyle Factors

Symptoms Of Scalp Psoriasis

Scalp Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that affects the scalp, causing various symptoms. Here are some of the most common symptoms of scalp Psoriasis:


The scalp may appear red or pink due to inflammation.


The scalp may feel itchy or uncomfortable.


Small, white flakes may appear on the scalp and hair.


Thick, silvery scales may develop on the scalp.


Scratching or picking at the scalp can cause small areas to bleed.


The scalp may feel hot or burning.

Hair Loss

In severe cases, hair loss may occur due to damage to the hair follicles.

Nail Changes

Psoriasis can also affect the nails, causing pitting, thickening, or discolouration changes.

The severity of scalp Psoriasis can vary from mild to severe, and some people may experience periods of remission followed by flare-ups.

Scalp Psoriasis vs. Seborrheic Dermatitis

Scalp Psoriasis is often confused with seborrheic dermatitis due to the similar symptoms. However, both conditions' causes, appearance, and treatment vary; therefore, getting a proper diagnosis is vital.

What is Psoriatic Arthritis?

Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) is a chronic autoimmune condition affecting skin and joints. According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, PsA affects approximately 30% of people with Psoriasis, a skin condition that affects 2-3% of the world's population, suggesting a significant impact on global health. The condition can develop at any age, but it typically affects individuals aged 30 to 50, with men more frequently affected than women.

PsA symptoms can vary significantly, and it can be challenging to diagnose, which delays treatment and exacerbates symptoms. Common symptoms include joint pain, stiffness, swelling, and fatigue. If left untreated, PsA can cause permanent joint damage and disability. Early diagnosis and prompt intervention are essential to managing symptoms and preventing complications. Several treatment options include medications, physical therapy, and lifestyle changes. PsA patients should seek medical care to identify and manage their symptoms effectively, reduce the risk of complications, and improve their quality of life.

Do anti-dandruff shampoos work on scalp psoriasis?

How is homeopathy different from allopathy for treating scalp psoriasis?

Allopathic medicines leave behind a lot of side-effects, and they do not necessarily treat the ailment fully. Not only is homeopathy an individualised treatment, it also treats without any side effects. Homeopathy is far more effective in treating scalp psoriasis than allopathy.
