Why do you have psoriasis ?
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that occurs when the immune system triggers the overproduction of skin cells, resulting in the buildup of thick, scaly patches on the skin. While the exact cause of psoriasis is not fully understood, several factors are believed to play a role in its development, including:
- Genetics: Psoriasis tends to run in families, suggesting that there may be a genetic predisposition to the condition. Researchers have identified several genes that are associated with psoriasis.
- Immune System: Psoriasis is considered an autoimmune disorder, in which the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy skin cells, triggering the overproduction of skin cells.
- Environmental Triggers: Certain environmental factors, such as stress, infection, injury, or medication, may trigger or worsen psoriasis symptoms.
- Lifestyle Factors: Lifestyle factors, such as smoking, obesity, and alcohol consumption, have also been linked to the development and worsening of psoriasis.
What can you do about it ?
Treatment options vary depending on the severity of the condition, the location of the psoriasis patches, and the individual’s response to treatment.
- Topical Corticosteroids: These are medications that are applied directly to the affected skin to reduce inflammation and itching.
- Vitamin D Analogues: These medications are applied topically to the affected skin and work by slowing down the growth of skin cells.
- Topical Retinoids: These medications are derived from vitamin A and work by reducing inflammation and slowing down the growth of skin cells.
- Light Therapy: This involves exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light, either through natural sunlight or artificial light sources.
- Systemic Medications: These are most effective for treating moderate to severe psoriasis that is resistant to other treatments.
- Biologic Drugs: Biologic drugs are most effective for treating moderate to severe psoriasis that is resistant to other treatments.
