What is psoriasis and how is it treated?

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes the development of skin cells. This development causes harsh patches that are regularly layered, red, and aroused. Psoriasis can influence any part of the body, yet it most generally creates behind the elbows and knees, and additionally the scalp, back, face, palms, and feet.

Psoriasis Symptoms:

Psoriasis may appear anywhere on the body but will often affect the elbows, knees, scalp and lower back. For some people, psoriasis appears as a few spots of dandruff-like scaling that is more of a nuisance than anything else. In other people, it is a severe condition that is painful, disfiguring, and disabling.

There are a few ways of knowing that the skin disease you have is psoriasis. Here are the common symptoms of psoriasis:

  • Enlarged red bumps
  • Scaly skin
  • Bleeding on the expulsion of flaky skin 
  • Dry, flaky skin
  • Oil spots near the nail bed
  • Nail thickening and lifting
  • Itchiness
  • Sensitive skin
  • Blood spots caused by the removal of the dry, scaly areas

 Psoriasis Treatment

If you suffer from above symptoms you may have psoriasis and you may talk to your dermatologist or skin specialist for its treatment
  • Causes your discomfort and pain
  • Makes performing routine tasks difficult
  • Causes you concern about the appearance of your skin
  • Leads to joint problems, such as pain, swelling or inability to perform daily tasks

Treatments are determined by the type and severity of your psoriasis, and the area of skin affected. Your doctor will probably start with a mild treatment, such as topical creams applied to the skin, and then move on to stronger treatments if necessary.

A wide range of treatments are available for psoriasis, but identifying the most effective one can be difficult. Our doctors will advise you for the best treatment.

3 type of Treatments done in Psoriasis:

1. Topicals (creams and ointments applied to your skin) - One of the most common treatment options, topicals, are usually the first medication your doctor will prescribe after you’ve been diagnosed with psoriasis. They come in different forms, like creams, ointments, gels, or foam. 

2. Phototherapy (your skin is exposed to certain types of ultraviolet light) - Phototherapy, also known as light therapy, also works on the surface of your skin. Using special lamps that shine UV rays directly onto your plaques can slow down the growth of affected skin cells.

3. Systemics (oral and injected medications that work throughout the entire body) - This type of treatment works throughout the body. For example, this type of treatment can be taken orally or by injection.
