Things you need to know about Psoriasis
Unpredictable and irritating, psoriasis is one of the most baffling and persistent skin disorders. It’s characterized by skin cells that multiply up to 10 times faster than normal. As underlying cells reach the skin’s surface and die, their sheer volume causes raised, red plaques covered with white scales. Psoriasis typically occurs on the knees, elbows, and scalp, and it can also affect the torso, palms, and soles of the feet.
- Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory skin disease.
- Plaque psoriasis is the most common form of psoriasis.
- Obesity, diabetes, and heart disease are more common in people with psoriasis.
- Psoriasis can be initiated by certain environmental triggers.
- A predisposition for psoriasis is inherited in genes.
- Although symptoms and signs vary, they include red, scaling plaques of itchy, elevated skin affecting the elbows, knees and scalp.
- Psoriasis is not contagious.
PsoriaSiddh Oil cures all these types of Psoriasis:
This is the most common type. Patches of skin are red, raised and have silvery-white flakes, called scales. They usually show up on your scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back. They may crack and bleed and they feel sore and itchy. The more you scratch, the thicker they can get. A patch can be as wide as 4 inches; sometimes more. You can get it at any age, but it’s more common in adults.
About half the people with psoriasis have this type. It looks like dandruff, but it’s not the same thing. Dandruff flakes are yellow and greasy. Scalp psoriasis is powdery and silver or white. Sometimes, the skin on the scalp is just a little bit crusty or flaky. This type can cover the whole head. It can also appear on your forehead, the back of your neck, and around your ears.
Kids and young adults are more likely to get this type. Small red dots with raised edges appear suddenly, usually on the middle of your body. Other common sites are the arms, legs, scalp, ears, and face. Things that trigger this kind of psoriasis include strep throat, the flu, a cold, and other upper respiratory infections. About 1 in 10 people with psoriasis has it.
These patches are shiny, bright red, and very sore. The area around them is usually smooth and doesn’t have silver scales. They appear only where skin touches skin, places called folds. Common areas are the armpits, groin, genitals, buttocks, under the breasts, and behind the knee. Rubbing and sweating can make the condition worse. Many people who have it also have another type of psoriasis.
This rare type might be a reaction to an infection, stress, medications, or contact with certain chemicals. It causes red, swollen patches of skin with pus-filled bumps (called pustules). When these dry out, they turn yellow-brown and scaly. It usually shows up on the palms of your hands or the bottoms of your feet. The blisters may break open, leaving skin cracked and painful.
Erythrodermic, or Exfoliative
This rare form causes large areas of skin to turn bright red, like a bad sunburn, then fall off your body. Symptoms include extremely itchy and painful skin, rapid heartbeat and feeling very cold or hot. It’s life-threatening, so go to the hospital. Causes include medications like corticosteroids, or untreated plaque psoriasis. It also affects people with von Zumbusch pustular psoriasis.
Psoriatic Nail Disease
About half of people with psoriasis also have skin cells build up under their nails, which become thick. They often split or crack. In severe cases, they could crumble or fall off. There may be brownish red or yellow spots underneath. Sometimes, the surface has tiny dents in it, like pin pricks. When they lift off the skin underneath (the nail bed), it’s called onycholysis.
