What is Psoriasis?

what is psoriasis

Psoriasis is a long-term skin condition which in some cases can affect the joints as well. Psoriasis can cause different symptoms in different people as it’s not the same in every one. The most commonly seen symptoms in individuals are raised red skin patches which are generally dry in nature and are covered with silvery …

Psoriasis as some consider is not an infection and not at all contagious. It doesn’t spread by touch. Psoriasis starts inside the body i.e. the skin and is caused by over-activity of your bod’s immune system. The extra inflammation within the body makes the skin cells grow and multiply too quickly. The body is not able to shed these excess skin cells, so they pile up on the surface of the skin.

T Cells are commonly known as the cells designed to protect your body but in case of Psoriasis its just the opposite as they are identified as a major component which can trigger inflammatory levels in form of Psoriasis affecting your skin.

Studies conducted at Kayakalp Global clearly show that anyone can get psoriasis. There are approximately 120 million people around the world with psoriasis, affecting males and females equally.

Common symptoms which were seen for psoriasis vary from person to person.

  • Red scaly patches on scalp, elbows, knees and other parts of the body
  • Itchiness  however, many people do not feel itchy at all
  • Shedding of scales of skin.

What triggers Psoriasis?

Psoriasis triggers are not easy to understand in most of the cases. What may cause psoriasis in one’s body may not affect another at the same time. Common psoriasis triggers as studies show include:

Stress

Stress can cause the medical condition to show up and your skin might flare-up for the first time or can aggravate existing levels of psoriasis in a human body. Relaxation and stress reduction may help an individual in reducing the impact of psoriasis.

Skin Injuries

Psoriasis can easily appear in areas of the skin which have been injured or traumatized due to any incident. Vaccinations, sunburns, and scratches can all trigger psoriasis. This initial psoriasis can be treated if it is caught early enough.

Sunburn

Sun plays a very important role as sometimes a small amount of sun can help you relieve the symptoms of psoriasis, and in some cases sun can lead up to sun burns which almost certainly can result up in a flare-up.

Cold Weather

Cold weather leads up to dryness which means the moisture level in the skin goes down which is considered as the worst-case scenario for psoriasis patients. And Indoor heating during winters usually makes matters worse.

Obesity

Being overweight is not good for your health and it can lead to Psoriasis in some cases. Obesity increases the risk of psoriasis and tend to make the symptoms even worse in some cases.

Medication

Some types of medications contradict with our body’s autoimmune system which later on results in increasing levels of Psoriasis in human body.

Dietary Issues

The National Psoriasis Foundation clearly states that psoriasis can get triggered in people who consume high levels of whole milk, citrus fruits, gluten, and fatty foods. A balanced diet doesn’t mean that you are safe from Psoriasis at all costs. It can get triggered still.

Infections

Some common infections like the strep throat and upper respiratory infections can also lead to psoriasis in an individual. You must consult your doctor if you have been affected by any of the bacterial infections as it could lead to Psoriasis at a later stage.
