That is why we take a multifaceted approach to psoriasis treatment options at Dr. Health Clinic. We combine light therapy, medication, and lifestyle changes when necessary to improve symptoms and reduce severity over time. We will walk you through our “1-2-3-4” approach.

Patients often report that the itchiness associated with their Psoriasis can interfere with their sleep and concentration and cause mental depression.

2. Oral Medications and Immune-Modulating drugs

Oral medications are a viable option for treating Psoriasis. Immune-modulating drugs help to regulate the body’s response to the skin condition. This increases antibody production and reduces inflammation. These drugs alter the immune system’s ability to attack abnormal cells to reduce the symptoms associated with Psoriasis.

3. Sunlight and UV Therapies

Sunlight and ultraviolet therapies are popular treatment options for those who have Psoriasis. Sunlight helps to slow the skin cell turnover rate, reducing scaling and inflammation associated with this condition.

The treatment plan includes the following –

  • Exercising
  • Making diet changes
  • Consuming folate-rich foods

Psoriasis affects many people, but it does not have to limit or define one’s quality of life. With proper medical treatment and the Psoriasis Wellness Regime, Psoriasis is manageable. Everyone’s experience of these treatments will be different. So it is important to remember that patience and dedication are vital in managing Psoriasis. We can remove Psoriasis patches with the help of proper treatment. Yet, you need to remember that Psoriasis is an ongoing condition. So even if one patch disappears, it does not mean that a new one will not appear in an unexpected spot.

Psoriasis can be managed and treated effectively, with the potential for complete remissions. However, it is important to be aware that there currently is no cure for Psoriasis. It’s essential to consult a qualified medical professional for psoriasis management and avoid any quacks or unqualified practitioners who promise a treatment.

Causes of Psoriasis

Psoriasis is one of the skin disorders that take place, especially when skin cells get replaced more quickly. Though the actual cause of this disease is not known, some experts believe that it occurs due to a weak immune system.

Your body generates new skin cells that gradually move up with the skin layers and also they reach the outermost level. The entire process generally takes approximately 3 to 4 weeks.

  • A weak immune system of your body also causes this disease. It helps fight infection. T-cell is one of the types of cells that the immune system uses the most. This cell generally travels through the body for detecting and also fighting those invading germs including bacteria.

  • Many people who already developed psoriasis symptoms tend to worsen due to certain events, known as a trigger. Once you are aware of triggers, it also helps you ignore those flare-ups. Some of the psoriasis triggers include smoking, stress, consuming excessive alcohol, hormonal changes, and many more.

  • Genetics is another main cause of diseases like psoriasis. If any of your family members suffer from this disease, you are prone to get infected with this disease. According to many researchers, different genes are responsible for developing skin disorders like psoriasis.

FAQ related to Psoriasis

Psoriasis is caused by an inflammatory response in which the immune system accidentally targets the body’s own cells. This causes an increase in the production of skin cells causing formation of thick scales on the surface, the typical appearance of psoriasis.

The exact cause is not known but research suggests that it is caused by a malfunctioning immune system. The cells of the immune system mistakenly attack healthy skin cells and trigger an overactive immune response. This leads to increased production of skin cells which build up in thick scaly patches on the skin surface. Genetics also plays a role in causing Psoriasis. Studies have shown that having one parent with psoriasis increases the risk of getting the disease and having two parents with psoriasis doubles the risk. Apart from these, other factors like stress, consumption of red meat and alcohol, viral or bacterial infections, winters or extremes of climate, injuries and certain medications may trigger psoriasis.

The symptoms vary as per the type of Psoriasis. Plaque psoriasis presents with dry, thick, raised patches covered with silvery white scales. Guttate psoriasis may present with multiple tiny red scaly bumps which appear extensively on larger areas of the body. Inverse psoriasis occurs on skin folds. Pustular psoriasis presents with severe infected pustules with inflammation and swelling. Erythrodermic psoriasis, the most severe form of psoriasis appears with a more severe inflammation, intolerable itching, and may be associated with fever, chills, and muscle weakness.

Psoriasis patients often have doubts whether it was okay for them to get married. Some get psyched up by the tiniest rash on their child’s skin and bring them along to the clinic to rule out psoriasis. Such is the fear psychosis about the disease. Psoriasis by nature is a non-contagious condition which means it cannot spread through touch or contact. It is safe for psoriatic patients to socialize, get married, have children.

Psoriasis presents with very characteristic symptoms which can be diagnosed clinically by a trained eye.

Psoriasis Itch is the principal and the most bothersome complaint amongst psoriatic patients. This was confirmed by a survey conducted by the National Psoriasis Foundation. Most patients who participated in the survey were of the opinion that if the itch were to be removed, they would be at much ease with the disease. The erythrodermic type of Psoriasis is the itchiest. The itching is severe enough to cause sleep disturbances, inability to concentrate and mental depression. In addition, the trauma caused due to constant scratching causes newer lesions. Psoriatic itch responds well to omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin B supplements. Skin softening agents like wheat germ, jojoba, essential oils of tagetes & tea tree are also highly effective against the itch.

People with Psoriasis should drink little or no alcohol. Several studies have shown that heavy drinkers experience more severe psoriasis symptoms. Excessive use of alcohol also causes deficiency of vitamins A and E which are crucial for healthy skin. Alcohol is a diuretic, apart from dehydrating the skin it can cause liver damage. It is known to cause flare-ups and limits the effectiveness of the ongoing treatment. These are many reasons for patients to say NO to this dangerous cocktail.

Include foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids in your diet. Oily fish like salmons and sardines are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and so is tuna fish. For vegetarian people flax seeds, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids. These seeds can be stored in airtight containers and sprinkled over various foods for their beneficial effects. Consumption of folate rich foods like broccoli and cabbage also is helpful. With Psoriasis, you may need to moderate the consumption of red meat, dairy products, and alcohol.

A study conducted at the National Psoriasis Foundation has confirmed the increased risk of cardiovascular disease for Psoriasis patients, especially those with severe Psoriasis and in their forties and fifties. Psoriasis patients should undergo regular checks to rule out the presence of heart disease and examine their risk factors like quit smoking, reduce stress levels, decrease sodium intake and maintain normal weight.

Yes, exercise is good for Psoriasis. It has always been known that overweight people and smokers were at higher risk of psoriasis flare-ups. However, in a study, it was found that despite being overweight and other lifestyle habits people who exercised regularly seemed to be protected against psoriasis flare- ups. The study also revealed that the lower risk was due to the fact that exercise lowered inflammation in the body in general, and body-wide inflammation is a common feature of psoriasis. Further exercise also decreases anxiety and stress which otherwise are big psoriasis triggers.

As of now there is no cure for psoriasis. But the symptoms of psoriasis can be managed very well with proper treatment. There is a lot of panic associated with the word Psoriasis. However, Psoriasis should be faced with a measure of equanimity. When a new patch is noted, it is no cause for fear, for treatment can rid you of it and a cleared patch is no cause for celebration, as a new lesion can occur there or elsewhere someday. The focus is to keep psoriasis from coming in the way of your routine, livelihood, and quality of life with the treatments available.
