Dr. Sneha’s take on Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a skin condition that affects people of all ages.

Psoriasis is a common skin disorder in which the life cycle of skin cells is accelerated. It creates a fast buildup of cells on the skin’s surface. Scales and red patches occur as a result of the excess skin cells, which are irritating and occasionally painful. Psoriasis is a persistent skin condition that flares up and off. The major purpose of treatment is to slow down the rapid growth of skin cells.

Psoriasis does not have a cure, although it can be managed. Moisturizing, stopping smoking, and controlling stress are some of the lifestyle changes that can assist.

Areas of Psoriasis

These occur anywhere on the body and are more common in the following areas

• Hands

• Elbows

• Legs

• Back

• Chest

• Fingernails

• Toenails

• Scalp

• Folds in the buttocks and groin

Psoriasis Symptoms

The signs and symptoms of psoriasis vary from person to person.

• Red areas of skin coated in thick, silvery scales are common indications and symptoms.

• Small scaly areas (commonly seen in children)

• Swollen and stiff joints

• Dry, cracked skin that may bleed

• Itching, burning, or pain

• Thickened, pitted, or ridged nails (Nail Psoriasis) (Joint Psoriasis)

Psoriasis is a skin condition that affects people of all ages. When a person develops psoriasis, the T cells (a type of white blood cell that fights unwelcome intruders like germs and viruses) erroneously stimulate a reaction in the skin cells, resulting in psoriasis.

This disease does not affect everyone who inherits the genes. It appears that a person must have the appropriate combination of genes and be exposed to a trigger to develop the disease.

Psoriasis Treatment

Psoriasis can be treated in a variety of ways. The optimum treatment is established by the treating doctor and is based on the type of disease, severity, and amount of skin involved, among other factors.

Topical treatments (skin applied), such as creams, lotions, and sprays, may be extremely effective and safe for the minor disease that affects only tiny portions of the body (less than 10% of the total skin surface). A tiny local injection of steroids into a difficult or resistant isolated psoriatic plaque may be beneficial on occasion. Topical treatments may not be helpful or practicable for moderate to severe psoriasis that affects considerably greater portions of the body (>10 percent or more of the total skin surface). This may necessitate the use of UV radiation or systemic (whole-body therapies such as pills or injections) medications. Internal drugs have a higher chance of side effects. Because topical treatment for psoriatic arthritis has no impact, systemic drugs are usually required to prevent the disease from progressing to permanent joint degeneration.

It’s crucial to remember that, like any medical condition, all drugs have the potential to cause negative effects. No drug is 100% successful for everyone, and no medication that is 100% safe. Any drug decision should be carefully considered and discussed with your health care practitioner. For each form of psoriasis and the individual, the dangers and potential benefits of drugs must be examined. One patient with the same level of sickness may be able to endure it with little treatment, but the other may become disabled and require interior treatment.
