What is psoriasis Disease?

Psoriasis disease is an autoimmune condition that causes cells to build-up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form scales and red patches that are often associated with itching and flaking. Psoriasis symptoms usually occur on the scalp (scalp psoriasis), elbows, knees, lower back and genitals. In some cases, psoriasis can also affect fingernails.

detailed content

Psoriasis disease is not contagious and in most people, the rash is limited to a few patches of skin. In severe cases, it can cover large areas of the body. The main goal of an effective psoriasis treatment should therefore be to stop the skin cells from growing rapidly and avoid build-up.

Causes of Psoriasis Skin Disease

Skin psoriasis is a chronic disease wherein the cells of the immune system of the body mistakenly attack the body’s own skin cells. Normally, the skin cells are replaced every 28 to 30 days but in case of psoriasis disease, new cells grow and build-up on the surface of the skin every 3 to 4 days. This rapid build-up of new cells creates silvery scales of psoriasis on the skin. Some of the factors that are believed to trigger psoriasis disease are:

Stress

Throat & Skin Infection

Certain Medication

Injury or Surgery

Cold and dry weather

Excessive intake of alcohol
and smoking

  • Guttate Psoriasis:

    This type of psoriasis is often triggered by a bacterial infection and appears as small, pinkish-red spots on the skin. It commonly affects children and young adults.
  • Pustular Psoriasis:

    This type of psoriasis is characterized 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.

The condition can develop at any age, but it typically affects individuals aged 30 to 50, with men more frequently affected than women.

Left untreated, PsA can cause permanent joint damage and disability. Early diagnosis and prompt intervention are essential to managing symptoms and preventing complications.
