] PSORIASIS ]
Psoriasis is a long term skin problem that cause skin cells
to grow too quickly. This quick growth will then cause a
thick patch of skin that will be silver, red or white. Normal skin will grow and flake off about every 4 weeks.
New skin cells grow to replace the outer layers of the
skin as they shed. In a person with psoriasis, new skin
cells move rapidly to the surface of the skin in days rather
than weeks. The skin builds up and forms thick patches
called plaques. The patches can range in size from small
to large. Most of the time you will find the patches on
the knees, elbows, scalp, hands, feet or lowerback.
Adults are the ones that have psoriasis most of the time, but children and teens can get it.
Psoriasis can be embarrassing if
you have it. Many people, especially teens, avoid swimming and
other situations where patches
can show. But there are many
types of treatment that can help
keep psoriasis under control.
WHAT CAUSES
PSORIASIS?
It is believed that psoriasis occurs
when the immune system overreacts, causing inflammation and
flaking of skin. Psoriasis can be
hereditary in some cases. People
with psoriasis will notice certain
times when their skin gets worse.
Cold and dry climate, infections,
stress, dry skins and certain medicines can cause these flare-ups.
SYMPTOMS OF
PSORIASIS
DIAGNOSIS AND
TREATMENT
Psoriasis symptoms appear in
different ways. Mild psoriasis
will present with small areas of a
rash. Moderate or severe psoriasis will look inflamed with raised
red areas topped with loose, silvery, scaling skin. If psoriasis is
severe, the skin becomes itchy and
tender. Sometimes large patches
form and become uncomfortable.
The patches may join together and
cover a large area of skin, such as
on the back. Symptoms will often
disappear (or go into remission)
even without treatment and then
flare back up.
Doctors can usually diagnose psoriasis by looking at the patches on
a person’s skin. Special test are
not usually needed. Most cases
of psoriasis are mild and can be
treated with skin care. This will
include keeping your skin moist by
using creams and lotions. Sometimes shampoos, ultraviolet lights
and medication are added to the
mix. If your case is hard to treat,
you may have to try different combinations of treatments to find one
that works for you. Treatment may
continue for a lifetime.
If you suspect you may suffer from psoriasis, call for an appointment with your doctor or
